Take That, I Finally Slipped Into Some Wolford Fatal Neon!

As a major pantyhose enthusiast, there was always that one lingering desire I’ve always had in the back of my head. Ever since I’ve seen those images of those super shiny seamless Wolford pantyhose worn on those lucky-as-hell models, I knew I had to have a pair. Sure, the Wolford Fatal Neon were discontinued in the last millennium, but they can be found. That is, if you don’t mind skipping your rent payment for the month.

Still, the fantasy of draping the queen of the pantyhose over my legs and basking in their shiny glow persisted for years. Years of checking those eBay listings became a routine of window shopping for that one thing I’ll probably never buy in my lifetime. Besides, Wolford makes the Neon 40 pantyhose which are currently the reigning queen and make quite a nice private time in those silken legs they leave.

Yet, recently, I found a pair that only cost the arm and let me keep the leg. I purchased them on the spot, then waited like a kid on Christmas for that delivery. Of course, I opened up that package like that same kid on Christmas.

Are Krystelle 30 Seamless Pantyhose The Next Wolford Fatal Neon?

As you may know, I’ve been dying to try the Krystelle Seamless 30 pantyhose as soon as I saw them on the Shapings website. Well, I sprung for a pair for 40 CAD (about 32 USD) in the “tea” shade and finally got them in the mail. Since I’m a total virgin to the seamless pantyhose style, I just could not wait to slip my just-shaved legs into these beauties which, of course, I did without hesitation.

The first thing I noticed after slowly sliding these up my right thigh is that they don’t have the typical slippery “spandex” feel normally found on shiny pantyhose, not to mention, something I highly covet in legwear. The Krystelle 30, instead, has a microfiber composite that can best described as a matte feel with a bit of shine on it. Though I prefer the spandex feel and shine, I wouldn’t call it a knock on these since it is a high-quality material after all. There is sufficient shine but it just isn’t at the level of, say, the Wolford Neon or it’s sexier cousin, the Wolford Fatal Neon.

Left leg all hosed up, time to pull them up to my waist and, WHOA, they are very low-rise! With some easing, I could get the waistband just barely to my navel, having to do a pantyhose wedgy on my butt in the process but you know what? It’s something I actually liked about the Krystelle 30. I could remember those pictures of old Fatal Neon packages with those tights perfectly wedged up the ass of those models giving an almost painted on look. The Krystelle 30 replicated that perfectly.

OMG, You Can Now Buy a Seamless Pantyhose Similar to Wolford Fatal Neon

I’ve pretty much lost hope for a revival of the pantyhose of my dreams, the gorgeous Wolford Fatal Neon. Sure, if I’m lucky, I could find them on eBay and fork over a small fortune for a pair that quite certainly has been opened and come upon (which, before today, I would have been fine with). I, however, ran across something that nearly brought this pantyhose enthusiast to tears.

If you’ve never been to Shapings.com, they are quite a treasure trove for legwear, like a Walmart for your pantyhose and even some lingerie needs. What really sets them apart is their large selection of imported, high end hosiery, basically a one-stop shop for the serious pantyhose fetishist. They are based in Canada and ship overseas (yes, USA too) and have been a very reliable source for those hard to find items, even out here in Europe.

So imagine my curiosity when I see on their home page an image which looked eerily similar to those I’ve seen of the Wolford Fatal Neon. Not only that but, holy shit, you can buy them. So I did the next logical thing, let out an OMG in a girly shriek (last time you’ll ever see OMG here again by the way), and clicked to the page, mouse hand shaking.

And there it was in all it’s glory, the Krystelle 30 Seamless pantyhose made by… Shapings themseleves? Quite interestingly, they teamed with an Italian manufacturer to produce the Krystelle 30 pantyhose to their specs and then brand them as their own. I say what a genius they are to see the void the discontinuation of the Fatal Neon long ago had created and jumped in to save the day.

An Open Letter to Wolford, Please Bring Back the Fatal Neon

I have a small request on behalf of all those with a fine taste in pantyhose, including those with a severe pantyhose fetish, some who just love their legs to shine brightly and others with a general aversion to looking at seams on their pantyhose. Yes, I would fall under all three by the way.

Please, oh dear God please, will you bring back the Fatal Neon yet once again?

Anybody who was familiar with your brand surely remembers the brilliant campaign you did with Helmut Newton way back in the 80’s that still draws raves even to this very day. Why, I can even remember long ago finding an image of the Fatal Neon packaging with that lovely blonde clad in nothing but your namesake pantyhose, butt clinging ever so nicely nicely to it and a camera draped over her shoulder.

Wolford Fatal Neon, The Queen of the Pantyhose Kingdom

Arguably, a favorite pantyhose among enthusiasts (such as yours truly) is the revered Wolford Neon 40. It’s everything you want in pantyhose: silky, shiny, comfortable, durable and looks incredibly hot on any pair of legs. Yet there is one type of Wolfords, unfortunately discontinued for a number of years, that trumps even the Neon 40.

The Wolford Fatal Neon.
