L’eggs® Kicks off Third Annual National Legwear Day

Perfect Pair: L’eggs Partnering with American Business Women’s Association

“National Legwear Day is a great reminder that legwear creates a modern, finished appearance and is a favorite accessory."

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ready to celebrate fall? L’eggs, Hanes® Hosiery and the American Business Women’s Association are kicking off the party early.

Sept. 22 marks the third-annual National Legwear Day, when L’eggs and Hanes Hosiery are honoring the essential leg looks of fall, including tights, sheers, socks, leggings and more, and wishing L’eggs a happy 50th birthday. As part of the festivities, L’eggs is partnering with the American Business Women’s Association, which is celebrating its 70th year of supporting women.

“National Legwear Day is a great reminder that legwear creates a modern, finished appearance and is one of women’s favorite accessories,” said Cathleen Moxham, design and merchandising lead for HanesBrands’ legwear. “This year, we’re honoring the milestones of L’eggs and the American Business Women’s Association on this day. Both have supported millions of women on their day-to-day journeys throughout the decades – and both have core values embracing diversity, strength, independence, inclusivity and celebrating all women.”

L’eggs hosiery, launched as women began entering the workforce in record numbers, was HanesBrands’ first hosiery introduction outside department stores. Today, L’eggs is the No. 1 brand of women’s legwear(1). In addition to graduated compression, which the brand is known for, L’eggs’ newest styles offer wicking cool comfort, run-resistant technology or a moisturizing benefit for even more all-day comfort.

To commemorate their mutual support for women, L’eggs is outfitting the Top 10 Business Women of the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) at the ABWA’s National Women’s Leadership Conference on Oct. 2, in Kansas City, Missouri.
