If you’re a guy who’s into crossdressing and interested in learning more about the different types of nylons and hosiery that are out there, this post is for you!

Recently, I spoke with a would-be crossdresser who mentioned that he liked nylons. So, naturally, I asked him if he preferred stockings or pantyhose. His reply was that he didn’t actually know the difference between the two.

Now, I’ve actually had more than one person tell me this. So I thought I’d write this little post about nylons, to maybe clear up some of the confusion surrounding hosiery. I admit to not being the girliest of girls (I like yoga pants and t-shirts too much), but I do have some experience with wearing nylons. 🙂

Stockings Or Pantyhose?

So what exactly is the difference between stockings and pantyhose? The best way I can explain it is to say that pantyhose come up to your waist, while stockings (usually) come up to your thighs. (That’s why they’re sometimes called “thigh-highs.”) Let me show you a couple of pics.

In the above picture, I’m wearing stockings. See how they come up only to about mid-thigh and look more like long socks?

Pantyhose

In the second picture, the model is wearing pantyhose. These come up all the way to the waist and look more like pants.

A Crossdresser’s Guide To Nylons

Not to confuse you crossdressing guys too much, but there are also other types of nylons out there as well, besides pantyhose and thigh-high stockings. Pantyhose and stockings are certainly the most common types, but there are others, too.

For instance, there are tights, which are like pantyhose, though they’re usually thicker and more opaque (less see-through) than pantyhose are. They’re made for cooler temperatures and can sometimes even be lined with fleece for more protection against the cold. For that reason, you don’t see tights very much down here where I live, in Alabama, lol. But in colder climes, they’re pretty popular, I understand

Some other types of hosiery include stockings that don’t reach thigh-high length. These are knee-highs, ankle highs, and footies (which just barely cover the heel and toes and do not show when you put your shoes on). These types of hosiery are more commonly worn with pants and dress shoes, so that the shoes don’t rub your feet. They’re not considered as “sexy” as stockings and pantyhose, but they can be very practical.

For Crossdressing Guys And Nylon Fetishists Alike

So if you’re a crossdressing guy or a guy with a nylon fetish (be it pantyhose fetish, stocking fetish, or both), I hope this blog post has helped you learn a little more about hosiery. It’s good information to have, especially if you’re looking to wear nylons yourself. Learning the proper terms for each type of hosiery will definitely help when you’re shopping for them, and perhaps at some point, you can impress a lady with your extensive knowledge of nylons. 😉

Personally, I’m a bigger fan of stockings of the thigh-high variety. This is because I’m rather tall, and pantyhose often don’t fit taller ladies properly, unless you luck up on some that are meant for those of us who are taller. But I will occasionally wear pantyhose. 🙂

Now I’m curious about which one you, as a crossdressing guy, prefer. Or if you even have a real preference because some people like both equally. Let me know in the comments or give me a call to talk about your crossdressing phone sex or nylon fetish phone sex fantasies. I really look forward to hearing your opinions on this topic. Talk to you soon!
