BillB Comments 40 My obsession with pantyhose started when I was around five years old. I remember seeing a picture of a couple performing ballet. The male was wearing tights and I was intrigued. I thought that it would be fun to wear tights and if learning ballet was a way to wear them I would give it a try. I told my mom I was interested in taking ballet lessons and she gave a little laugh and explained that I was too young. This was probably a good decision because by the time I was a teen I was 6'-0" tall, not very coordinated and weighed about lbs.
