I had heard that male cyclists used to wear women's pantyhose in the winter to keep thier legs warm. this was before the days of the moisture wicking and wind break thermal materials we have today. Is there any truth to this? I am not saying there is anything wrong with doing this, just asking if it is a myth or true. If it is true did it work? How well?
My wife told me when she was a cheerleader her nad the other girls wore panyhose in the winter during the games they cheered at to keep their legs warm. She said it worked great. She also told me some football players used to use women's pantyhose as well which worked for them. (Yes I am one of the lucky few who married a former cheerleader).
