It is the latest invention in Japan where women are simply spraying on silk aerosol.
A man actually came up with Air Stocking after hearing a woman complain about wearing stockings in the heat-
The water proof product doesn't tear either and it doesn't peel off, but it does come off with soap and water.
The product goes on sale in the U-S this spring for about 29 dollars which contains about 30 days worth of stockings. (------------)
