Lace pantyhose has been fashionable for decades and is still considered a fun fashion statement. Styles run the gamut from tights with an all-over floral lace pattern to pantyhose with lace panty tops and even maternity pantyhose with lace panels. Lace has been a symbol of elegance and femininity for centuries. Although originally crafted by hand, today lace for items like pantyhose is machine-made, usually from modern synthetics. As delicate as lace pantyhose looks and feels, synthetics like polyamide make them both durable and easy to care for.
