||I recently saw some pictures from Pantyhose-X - a German nylon fetish magazine (unsure whether print or only online). The few sets that I saw, I loved, and decided to seek out and join the source. I'm not sure of the details, but reading between the lines, I suspect that some change of ownership has been involved recently; pantyhose-x.com becoming nylon-x-files.com with content from the former. I also rather suspect that the changes are not for the best.
First the good.
This is obviously very nylon-oriented material - and more to the point, it's very fetishistic. By which I mean that it focuses very much on the sheerness of it; in fact in the majority of the sets, the tights don't come off at all. Some of them are gusseted and you don't see that much, other than them pulled up tight into the model's pussy; others are seamless and sheer and there are plenty of closeups of the girls masturbating through and under the nylon. The rest of the clothing is great too - from casual and businesswear, to things like corsets, high lace-up boots, PVC miniskirts etc.
The models too are pretty - not too glam or polished (maybe some peroxide), some girl-next-door types - but great figures and legs (of course!). And the photography is great - with a lot of shoots outdoors and in public places - some quite risqué stuff which is kind of exciting.
My only gripe with the content is my usual - most models are shaved, and given the nature of this style, that you get to glimpse them through the sheer nylon, I can't help feeling that even a trimmed strip or patch of hair would be something more to glimpse.
Although I love the material, the presentation of it is the worst I've come across. Having emailed the webmaster to check, I knew about the resolution (it seems to have suffered in the transition, from the 1800px sets that seem to have been offered by pantyhose-x) and the lack of zips - but figured I'd give it a try.
The members area is very basic, just a list of sets with no dating, model names, or sorting/searching features for the 150 odd sets available.
**Edit** When I first wrote the review, there was no download of anything - not even individual pictures - you could only view on screen in a lightbox-type viewer, which made me mark it down heavily. But the site does now offer download links to pictures; there are still no zips, but this small change makes it easy to download a set with a manager, eg downThemAll.
The site still has issues as in the cons above, but this small change makes it seem far less mean-spirited, and is enough to bump my score from 65 to 75 - it's now recommended if you like this material (and can use a download manager!)
