Are tights sexy? I think anything can be sexy if it makes you feel sexy, and today these tights make me feel extremely powerful. They might by knitted and stripy but when I wear them I feel strong and a little bit like a witch. And that is definitely sexy.
While previously I’ve defined ‘lingerie’ as any underwear that I feel hot in, today I’m challenging my own definitions of lingerie by sharing my tights with you all. I think that’s the point of Lingerie is for Everyone – to challenge societal norms around what we think of as traditional sexy underwear. I can do that in boxers, of course, but I think I can also do it in tights.
Clothes are important to me – in a way my internalised misogyny never thought they would be. It’s important that I look in the mirror and feel like me. I am still finding the balance between butch and femme as I try to show the world who I am through how I dress. If I feel like myself in what I’m wearing, I feel more confident, more queer, more capable of kicking ass and changing the world.
Because I feel like me in tights, I feel sexy.
2020 is the year of shameless self-promotion so if you think I look sexy in tights why not buy me a coffee?
