Okay, panties is typically a topic I'd steer clear of on this site. And, to be candid, I know next nothing about them. I think they are good for straining things. I've used them for that before. But my childhood is full of memories not of the panties themselves, but the containers they came in. I hadn't thought about Leggs in a long, long time until Rachel and I were in a Target recently and passed the panty display. And I noticed the brand was no longer in the familiar white egg, but in non-descript little boxes. Now, I realize the eggs haven't been sold for years, but when did they stop? My mom would buy Leggs brand hose and my brother and I would use those plastic white eggs as makeshift "space ships" for our Star Wars action figures. I think we'd put half a Legg egg on our face as a "fake nose." I'm sure we had other uses for them, but as space ships is my biggest memory (I think we were inspired by the round, egg-like spaceship that Mork in Mork and Mindy came out of). So, how many of you remember these? And when did the egg discontinue?
I understand they probably discontinued for environmental reasons, the packaging, I guess, wasn't very eco-friendly, but the packaging certainly was a stroke of marketing genius!
I think the major decrease in pantyhose use caused the company to need less expensive packaging and it has been years since I have seen them in an egg. I wondered why they wanted to keep the brand name if there was nothing to represent the egg any more. I guess that is more complicated than pkging
Kevin, those Legs are not panties, they are pantyhose. A small difference in words, but a big defferece to women!
Yikes, Bonnie...good point...hose...that was what Grandma and my Mom always called them....
The year was 1991 according to the page on google
When I was first married my mom made Christmas ornaments from them one year and gave them to us.
