Bulletproof stockings

Chassidic women typically wear something called the bulletproof stocking. These stockings are typically olive or some sort of brown, they aren’t those sexy black one’s they sell in Victoria’s Secret. These stockings are typically called bulletproof stockings by the rest of the Orthodox world.

One of the interesting things about bulletproof stockings is that they have seams sewn into them to prevent anyone from thinking the women’s legs are showing. These seams must be hand sewn in after the stockings are purchased. A friend of mine pointed out to me that seamed stockings are typically sexier than just regular plain one’s and it was ironic to her that Chassidim are using the seams to de-sexify the stockings, when in the regular world seams are used to make stockings sexier.
