“I’m 27and new to this site. I wear stockings regularly and I thought I would share my most embarrassing moment with you. In 1993, when I was 19, I began work at a public library. Wanting to look smart on my first day I put on my best skirt. The trouble was it was a little too tight, but I managed to fit into it, just. When I was walking across the main floor of the library my button popped off and my skirt slipped down to my knees. I briefly showed my stocking tops and benders to a few dozen people. As I bent to quickly pull up my skirt my knickered bum was quickly flashed as well. I blushed as red as a beetroot and nearly died of embarrassment. I didn’t dare face the people who had seen my underwear so I hid in the offices for as long as I could.”
“I was invited along with the rest of my colleagues to an evening wedding reception for which a coach was laid on to take us to the venue. As it was quite a posh do I was wearing a full length flowing skirt. As I was going down the steps of the coach my skirt dragged along the floor and someone behind me stepped on the hem. As I continued getting off the coach, the skirt button flew off and the zip came down – swiftly followed by my skirt which ended up in a crumpled heap on the pavement leaving me stood in my black stockings cornflower blue sussies and knickers. I pulled my skirt back up and fortunately one of the ladies had a safety pin which saved the day. I did get quite a lot of attention from the guys that night and I don’t think I bought a drink all night!”
“Way, way back in 1959 I was an office junior in a large government office. Those, of course, were the days when nylons and suspenders were universally worn. I too lost my skirt without warning, but I had on a flouncy petticoat underneath, which probably only served to make me look even more ridiculous. Adding insult to injury my petticoat was semi-transparent so my knickers and sussies were seen by all. Even after all these years, I still feel my cheeks glowing crimson when I recall it!”
“I was walking across the open-plan office where I work with a colleague of 26 (I’m 52) when I heard the unmistakeable ‘ping’ of a suspender coming loose. My colleague blushed and nodded when I asked if she was wearing suspenders. I still wear them for work but I was surprised at a girl of her age.
“I’ve been a closet wearer of stockings under business clothes for decades. I usually wear nude or light beige stockings with a wide pull-on garterbelt. At a meeting some years ago I stood up to give my short presentation. As I did so, a front garter released with what seemed like a cannon shot to me. I couldn’t believe it had not been heard by everyone, but no one seemed to take notice. I hurriedly finished my talk, and adjourned to the men’s room to re-attach the garter. Since then, I always pinch the front garter with pliers to prevent a repetition. It seems effective.”
“Never embarrass a lady who is wearing stockings in any way. All of us (and that includes me) are expected to act like the ladies and gentlemen we are, with good manners at all times. It upsets me when I read of someone being careless in how they exit a table and cause exposure of someone who would rather not be exposed. Believe me when I say, no lady has to wear stockings. They do have other choices such as pantyhose and thigh highs. So when they are wearing stockings they deserve respect and to be treated with the utmost dignity.”
