Lightweight are good if you're used to wearing lightweight tights or pantyhose.
Thanks for your comment. Does 15 denier have smaller holes than 30? I hope this helps. Thank you so much for explaining this in such a simple and sort of friendly way!! I hope my email at least lets you know that people out there reading this have learnt a great deal in about 5minutes.
You can subscribe to our blog to receive all posts and keep learning: Some stockings are quite rough to the touch despite looking wonderful, while others look amazing AND feel wonderfully smooth and soft. How does denier play into this, if at all? We find that good-quality fibres make hosiery smoother, but also the fine these fibres are. While most of the opaque tights are microfibre tights, some manufacturers have started to use nanofibres, which are even tinier. Other examples are wool.
Cashmere wool is much smoother than other kinds of wool, but, of course, they are quite an expensive material. Finally, we have noticed sometimes the same product has different finishes depending on the colour, especially in cheaper pairs of sheer tights. In this case, we believe the dye is the one to blame for this. Hoping this has helped you! I am mostly wearing tights at the office. As the pictures on the packaging of the tights and also the pictures on this site suggest that no underwear has to be worn with them, I decided to try it.
I find them more comfortable without underwear, but I am not sure that it is the intended way to wear them. Is there any recommendation for it? Hi Laura, Thanks for your comment. To be fair, some of the brands we stock decide to shoot the models with underwear and some others without. However, we know of many customers who prefer wear tights without underwear. When shopping at UK Tights, you can use a filter on the left under style to select any hosiery with cotton gusset.
We hope this helps! Thanks for the information we are on holiday at the moment and I usually wear shere tights or hold ups and there are quite a variety here. Wouid 10 denier have a sexy stroky feel the figure Ive seen here is mostly 20 what do you think Thanks Jennifer.
While 10 denier feels better for hot weather, low denier hosiery is quite delicate, so 15 and 20 is also a very good choice. Do keep enjoying your holidays! Do you sell or know of tights with these properties? If not what composition of material would most likely give these qualities? We have 20 denier tights matt and slight sheen. Some of them are ladder proof; some medium support. But we cannot find any ladder-proof support tights, probably because of the way ladder-resist tights are knitted.
Here you have some styles that could work. None of them are ladder-resist, but these all have Medium-support: These are usually slightly more expensive, but totally worthy.
Hi, I wear 60 Denier opaques to cover my leg hair. As you will have gathered I am a man so unfortunately we get judged on what we wear and do, even in this day and age. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

To date I have not found a range comparable to these Wolford ones. Hi Heather, Have you tried Fogal Caresse 20 tights? The higher the denier, the more opaque the hosiery becomes.
Modern styles can manage to make sheer hosiery at a higher denier to provide strength and sheerness - it depends on the brand and will definitely cost more. Learn the qualities of each denier range. The following denier counts will help you to identify which hosiery you need for each wearing occasion: This almost appears like not wearing hosiery at all. This denier range is ideal for hot weather and for glamorous evening translucency. The downside is that this denier tends to be fragile, so keep your fingernails clear when putting on, and be careful of snagging it while wearing.
Common culprits involved in snatching these include rough chairs, brushing against foliage, and the underside of tabletops. This range is the fairly standard, classic hosiery denier. It is obvious that you're wearing hosiery but good quality hosiery will give your legs an even, complete appearance. Given that this denier is stronger, it's far less likely to snag, and it's the typical weight for office wear and is also suitable for casual and evening wear.
Don't dismiss the cheaper versions. It pays to shop around in this denier - you may be pleasantly surprised by the quality of a cheaper brand. This range is not yet opaque and has the advantage of being stronger than sheer but still showing your skin through the texture. It's another ideal pick for office and retail assistant wear, especially for long days. Again, it can be fine for evening wear. These are the thick members of the hosiery family and they are referred to as "tights". Anything 40 denier and above won't show your skin underneath unless it's really stretched when you bend your knee.
Great for cold weather, this hosiery will keep your legs warm under a skirt or trouser pants or even shorts!
This denier tends to come in a range of colors and patterns that can be carried off well because of the hosiery's thickness. Be careful when buying all wool tights - they can be really itchy and also cause you to overheat in constantly warm indoor environments.
Another benefit of many thicker deniers is the ability to mend them around the toe and heel areas if they are made of durable materials such as cotton, wool, or lace. This means they last and last, several years even, if looked after well. Take time to learn what suits you best. While it is helpful to listen to the ideas of retail assistants, friends, and others giving you advice, hosiery is a very personal experience and what works for one person may not work for you.
If you try hosiery that you don't find appealing, move on to the next style or denier until you find something that works best for you. Denier needs change according to season - if you find keeping cool or warm important, keep this in mind.
Some fashion trends will see hosiery out of fashion altogether and that's fine too! There is a lot of advice about not wearing certain colors and patterns.
Some of it is good advice if you're concerned about weight issues see "Tips" below but again, test out the look for yourself. Simply because one fashion blogger or a magazine fashion editor cannot abide one style of hosiery doesn't mean it won't work for you.
The only real bar might be cost, as some of the imported hosiery is astronomically priced when it comes to just testing it out! Lightweight are good if you're used to wearing lightweight tights or pantyhose.
