Spandex is a synthetic fiber invented in 1959 at DuPont’s Laboratory in Waynesboro, Virginia. The word spandex is an anagram of the word expands.
During the 70s and 80s, spandex leggings became extremely popular among many rock and heavy metal bands. The sudden popularity of spandex was due to the fact that it remained stretchy and tight-fitting even after being worn for a long time.
Spandex was first used in ladies garments such as corsets and other inner wear. Back in those days, women thought it was important to wear a corset and were considered indecently dressed without it. Now spandex is on the primary edge of fashion for both men and women.
How does this affect me, the ordinary crossdresser you may ask?
Well, first you discovered that a pair of silky, satin panties feels wonderful, almost magical. Then as you added another layer such as a pair of tights or pantyhose you noticed that the feeling was even better. A lot better. But you wanted more didn’t you? You wanted to go even further and add another layer or two, or three, or as many as you could get your little hands on.
You may have panties and pantyhose just sort of lying around, but do you have a sexy, tight, spandex dress that fits you perfectly? A dress that can be custom made in exactly your size for about $30? The kind of dress that makes you want to set up your camera and take pictures of yourself looking gorgeous for the whole world to see?
Go ahead and take pictures but think twice about showing the whole world. The last thing you want is to have all your friends wearing the same dress, that’s just embarrassing.
