Do I need to wear pantyhose to a job interview?

I have been going on a lot of interviews lately, and in order to aid in that process, I've bought a sharp new black skirt suit. Do I absolutely need to pair this suit with opaque black pantyhose, or if it is okay for me to go to a job interview with bare legs (provided that it isn't FREEZING that day)?

Like a lot of women, I hate pantyhose. I think they are kind of ugly, and they're definitely massively uncomfortable. I currently work in a business casual office and I always go with bare legs on the rare occasion that I wear a skirt or dress to work. BUT, as I stated above the fold, I have been going on a lot of interviews lately. I am aware that a job interview is very different from a casual day at work, and I want to be sure to dress to impress. I recently bought a new skirt suit and I look great in it, but I am teensy bit nervous about going to a job interview with bare legs. Would it be a huge deal breaker if I went to the interview in a skirt suit with bare legs? And if I really MUST wear pantyhose, can anyone here suggest a good brand that is at least KIND OF comfortable and that comes in opaque black? Thanks!
I live in the southeastern United States and am in my late twenties, in case that matters.
