With the current pandemic having everyone in various states of lockdown, it feels as though there’s no sense of normal anymore. Essential workers are trying to keep themselves and others safe on the front lines, while non-essential workers are hunkering down at home, trying to weather the storm of an uncertain time. Why bother doing something special when every day feels the same? Many people spend most of their time in their pajamas (we’ve got you covered there, if this applies to you) and haven’t dressed up in months.
This sense of staleness extends to our relationships with others, particularly romantic relationships. It can be hard to imagine a time where you’ll ever get to do something special with your partner again. But what if we told you that you can get dressed up and have a romantic night in, all with finishing touches by yours truly at MeMoi?
A romantic night in could be the perfect way to break through the doldrums and invigorate your downtime. Whether you (safely) order takeout or cook a special meal, donning your best duds with your special someone will give you that sense of normalcy that you’ve been craving. We have several options for both masculine and feminine styles so you can look your best, even if it’s just for each other. And hey, doesn’t that make it more special?
This is your go-to guide for Legwear for A Romantic Night In!

Control Top Footless Tights
If you live in a house where absolutely no shoes are allowed past the front door, these are the tights for you. These tights are ideal for if you have been with your significant other a long time and they’re used to your feet. Stockings can be difficult to walk in, especially on slippery hardwood floors. To have your feet free and able to sense the ground beneath them can bridge the gap between the life you’ve been living in quarantine and trying to dive headfirst into normalcy. Plus, depending on what your outfit is, it could take it down a notch. Paired with your partner’s burger and fries socks (see above), you’ll be a duo that is down to earth with a sense of humor.
