The clothing item not just for superheroes

Czech babies must be among the warmest-dressed children in the world. When we meet a Czech friend for a play date in the winter time, it takes several minutes of unwrapping before little Honzík becomes visible. Under the multiple layers, most Czech babies share a common denominator: regardless of gender, tights are obligatory. If you come from another culture, this tight-wearing fanaticism can take awhile to get used to, particularly for those of us raised to believe that any kind of tights or pantyhose belong to the feminine gender.
