Surviving The Holidays With Hanes

I can’t believe Christmas is just a few short days away, I’m so excited!
There are always a handful of must have things that get me through the holiday season each year.
The first being shape wear tights from Hanes.

Every year around this time I am always pulling out my tights for a number of reasons.
Ones to wear with this skirt or dress I’ve been dying to wear but it’s too cold to go bare legged,
patterned ones to change it up a bit, or simply because I had too much to eat and need something to shape me without exposing all these extra details. Wait, I can’t forget those days of not shaving too.

I remember when I was a little girl, always seeing my mother wearing her Hanes pantyhose or sometimes even going shopping with her to get new ones. Of course I think pantyhose/stockings/tights, whichever you call it, are something meant differently between generations. For example, my mother grew up where being casual and bare legged was not much of a thing as it is now in this generation. However, hosiery has not completely disappeared
(hello, Kate Middleton) and as my mother’s daughter,
it was not long before I grew up and got my own set of tights as well.
I have always been a fan of black opaque tights
but getting the nude sheer power shapers quickly changed my mind.

I’m sure you can imagine that my mother was the first person to ask my review on these Hanes tights
as she has been wanting to get a new pair herself,
but let me also share with y’all about how you need these in your life.
This particular kind from Hanes is called power shapers and is named so for a reason.
They shape and smooth areas, without lacking comfort.

I literally wore the nude shape wear tights all day running errands and almost to bed they were so comfortable. I am a pasta lover, ranch lover, all things bad for you lover, so trust me when I say I needed some shaping but didn’t want to feel as if wearing these would cut off circulation between my high waist creating that beautiful pouch we all love, and trust me these did not.
Oh and did I mention these are run resistant? Tested out by my lovely chihuahua who loves to scratch at my leg when she is excited and wants to be picked up.
I also love the silky finish on these nude sheer tights making them perfect to allow that casual look to shine or a great addition to that sparkly, sequin holiday outfit.

The black shape wear tights were opaque and had a little bit more thickness than the nude ones.

I went with a casual look for the nude tights and decided to share a look
perfect for that special occasion or holidays with the black tights.
If you’re looking for another option besides sequins, a mini skirt, or dress, try high waisted shorts.
I paired mine with the tights and faux fur vest for a chic look that also keeps me warm.

but check out these other must have goodies on my list.

  • Drink: Wether it’s coffee or hot cocoa, it’s a must and so is the perfect mug.
  • Lip: You always need a good lipstick/gloss for all those holiday parties. 
  • Treat Yourself: Sometimes you need time to unwind with a good scrub or mask!
  • Holiday decorations: Because what else puts you in the Christmas spirit!
