Four Easy Tips To Make Your Legs Look Longer And Leaner With Tights

Four Easy Tips To Make Your Legs Look Longer And Leaner With Tights

The best thing about wearing tights is that you can achieve any look you want. You can enhance your natural beauty with the right pieces. If you want to have the look of longer, leaner legs, there are some simple tips that can help you do so. Here are our top tips that anyone can do:

1. Match Your Shoes

Matching your shoes creates an uninterrupted line along your legs. Wearing shoes of a different color creates a visual barrier between your legs and your feet. Removing this barrier by wearing shoes of the same color as your tights can help your legs look miles long. Fortunately, tights like the Brigitte 15 Denier Pantyhose come in a wide variety of colors so they can match any footwear.

2. Choose A Darker Color

Dark colors like black, navy, and royal purple are naturally slimming. This is because dark colors hide any shadows and create a visual illusion of thinner lines, especially when worn on the legs. Luckily, you don’t have to stick to black. We have a beautiful selection of darker colors like the gorgeous dark magenta of the Sevilla LIbero Seamless Glossy Pantyhose in Cruela or the stunning emerald green of the Diamond Shimmering Fashion Tights in Smeraldo.

3. Opt For Opaque

Opaque tights with a denier rating of 40 or higher are also quite slimming. Opaque tights are thicker, so they hide any imperfections that you would see with a sheerer pair. They also create a solid visual line that can lengthen your legs. If you want to achieve this look, consider the Seidenglatt 70 Opaque Sheen Tights. They are thick and opaque, but the sheen helps distinguish them from leggings.

4. Go Vertical

Vertical stripes are the best pattern for making your legs look longer and leaner. That is because your eyes immediately follow the line upward, highlighting the length of your legs. To try this look for yourself, go for the 615 Mesh Open Crotch Pantyhose. You can also try a simple tuxedo line like the one featured on the Cosmo 40 Tights.

These tips will help you have the long, lean legs you’ve always wanted in an instant. At, we have the hosiery you need to achieve any look. Our European-made hosiery is manufactured using the finest quality materials and the most advanced techniques, so you won’t have to worry about your new look being ruined by unsightly tears or runs.

Looking After Your Delicate Sheer Hosiery

Looking After Your Delicate Sheer Hosiery

Spring is here and summer will be coming close on its heels. This is the time of year you’ll be breaking out your sheer hosiery the most, and you’ll want your favorite pairs to last all year long and beyond. Sheer hosiery is often a bit more delicate than heavier opaque hose, and this means they’ll also require a bit more delicate care.

The care for your delicate sheer hose begins before you even take them out of the package. Before opening the package your sheer hosiery comes in, make sure that your nails are filed and your hands moisturized. Any snags in your nails or skin could catch onto the hosiery, causing runs or tears before you even get the chance to wear. When you’re putting on your hosiery, moisturize your hands and legs, and delicately roll the hosiery onto each leg. Remove any jewelry you may have on, and make sure any stretching of the hosiery is done carefully. Once your hosiery is on, gently pull on the toe portions to leave a little room and prevent tears from forming at the toes.

When you take off your hosiery at the end of the day, do the opposite of what you did to put them on. Gently roll the hosiery down, and don’t pull harshly from the toe. Roll down until the hosiery simply rolls off of your legs and feet, and then store gently until you’re ready to wash.

Washing your delicate hosiery is something of a process, and if you plan to use a washing machine, using a mesh washing bag is always recommended. Hosiery is ideally handwashed, however, using gentle detergent and kept far away from any jewelry or other garments to discourage snagging. Your hosiery  can be hanged to dry gently, or they can be placed between two dry towels and laid flat until dry.

When you store your fine hosiery, you’ll also want to take special care. Store your hosiery separately from all other clothing, and ideally not directly on a wooden drawer. Wood can have small splinters you cannot see, but that doesn’t mean they won’t snag your hose. Line your hosiery drawer or keep your hosiery stored in small bags or tubs to ensure they remain protected.

We have all the fine and delicate sheer hosiery pieces you need to make your spring and summer wardrobe a star this year. To see what we have for you, contact us at today!

Choosing The Right Hosiery For Your Look

Choosing The Right Hosiery For Your Look

So you have your whole look planned out, and now you’re just stuck on the hosiery. Do you want to make a statement? Do you want your hosiery to add an “edgy” appeal? What about adding a bit of classic refinement? Are you trying to get a little funky with your hosiery? Choosing the right hosiery for your look is an important part of piecing an outfit together, and we have just the hosiery picks you need. A few tips for always choosing the right hosiery for every outfit are:

  • Black tights complete a look – If you’re looking for a “stand out” sort of appeal, opaque black tights might not be what you reach for, but these are staple pieces of any hosiery wardrobe. What black tights do is complete a look, and do so in a way that is understated but still important all the same. With patterns, neutral shades, boots, heels, and everything in between, if you’re simply looking for an easy finishing touch, you may want to reach for your black hose.
  • Colored tights add pop – If you’re wearing a lot of neutrals, or you’re simply trying to tie that “must have” accessory into your outfit, you’ll want to consider your colored tights. These add a real pop to your look, and they can help you to tie in those earrings, that bag, or that jacket with ease. If you’re trying to take a bit of the glumness out of an all-black outfit, try tying in a bright pair of jewel tone tights.
  • Patterned hosiery adds interest – If you’re wearing solid colors and classic fabrics, you might be looking for that piece to add a bit of interest into your look. A bag works, but it’s still an accessory and not an item to be worn on the body. This is where patterned tights really add something special, bringing particular interest and a true statement to your overall look. Florals, geometrics, and even quirky novelty print tights can be just what you’re looking for.

No matter the look you’re going for, we have just the hosiery you’re looking for. To find the perfect pair to suit your outfit, check us out at today.

Are You Making These Mistakes With Your Hosiery?

Are You Making These Mistakes With Your Hosiery?

There is no wrong outfit for hosiery, there is no wrong time of year for hosiery, but there can be wrong ways to wear hosiery. If you’re looking to make the most of your hosiery looks, there are a few mistakes you’ll want to stay far away from:

  • Buying the wrong size – Hosiery that is too big will look baggy and unrefined; you’ll be pulling them up all day long to avoid bunching at the ankle. Hosiery that is too small will look awkward and leave you far more susceptible for runs and snags. The best thing you can do when looking at hosiery to buy is to learn your size and stick to it.
  • No flashing – Many pairs of tights and hose have a portion that is a bit thicker from the thigh to the waist, and this is to push up, tuck in, and smooth your appearance. Control hosiery can do a great deal for your look, but it should be worn with care. The more opaque control top area should remain hidden, and shorter hemlines should be paired with hosiery that remains uniform all the way up.
  • Be mindful of your patterns – Patterned hosiery has been all the rage in recent seasons, and for good reason. Patterned hosiery is fun, it helps you to turn your legs into a statement piece, and it gives you a ton of different ways to play with your outfits. However, you can go wrong when it comes to choosing your hosiery pattern. If you’re wearing an outfit with small sized patterns, don’t pair with small patterned hosiery, and if you’re looking to slim down the leg, don’t opt for larger patterned looks.
  • Be careful with your fishnets – Fishnet hosiery can present with either a very sexy and elegant classic look, or a very edgy look. For a sexy look, pair the fishnets with a longer pencil style skirt, and for something a bit edgier, opt for fishnets with a short hemline and “harder” accessories. Mixing up these looks with your fishnets can leave you looking messy or unrefined if not done exceptionally well.

By following a few simple rules, you’ll be ready to wear your hosiery with any outfit, and you’ll feel confident in every pair you put on. For the perfect hosiery to complete your looks, see what we have in store at today!

How To Rock Tights With Your Favorite Shorts

How To Rock Tights With Your Favorite Shorts

There’s so many cute shorts in style this season, we definitely want to stock up. However, some of the looks like the hot pants found on Saint Laurent, Hermes, and Chanel’s Spring runways were pretty daring. Fortunately, you can still wear them paired with your favorite pair of tights. Whether you want to tone down the look or make your legs look leaner and longer, wearing the shorts looks with tights is a great fashion choice.

What To Look For In Tights To Wear With Shorts

There are a couple of things to consider when wearing tights under shorts. First, you want to make sure that they don’t have a control top like the Opaque Seamless Tights Miss 60. If you still would like the slimming effect, there are some options like the Fit Control 40 tights that have the control top around only the stomach area. Next, you want to make sure they are designed to be worn under tight clothing like the Opaque Seamless 50 Tights so they don’t catch or rub thin from your shorts.

Wearing Tights For A Bare Leg Look

For those of us looking for a more slimming option, wearing a pair of sheer pantyhose is a great idea. Choosing an ultra-sheer pantyhose can make it seem like you are showing your bare legs. The Capri Trasparenze Ultra Sheer Panythose and the Cecilia De Rafael Divine NANOFIBRE Pantyhose are both great options. Just pay close attention to the sizing to avoid any sagging around your ankles or knees. These can be a giveaway that you aren’t bare-legged.

Go Bold With A Pair Of Thigh Highs

A cute look that will keep you warm, slim your legs, and even make you look a little taller is pairing shorts with thigh high tights. Make sure that you get thigh highs and not thigh high stockings because stockings need suspender belts. A great thigh high option for under shorts are the Cristine 50 3D Microfiber Stay Up Stocking with Floral Lace. If you are worried about your thigh high tights staying up or would still like to cover some imperfections, the Fiore Miguela Thigh High Imitation Tights are standard tights but with the look of thigh highs.

No matter which style you choose to wear with your shorts this season, make sure to get a high quality pair of tights. The European styles found at are ideal. Made from high quality materials, you won’t have to worry about runs or holes ruining your new look. Plus, we have a wide variety of color, styles, and fits to make sure you achieve the perfect look.

Four Ideas To Keep Your Tights Organized And Free Of Runs

With so many great styles, colors, and patterns at, it’s easy to build a collection. To keep your tights in great shape and easy to access, you’ll need to get them organized. Luckily, no matter if you have a large walk in closet or just a sock drawer, there are some great ways to organize your tights.

1. Roll Them And Store Them In A Drawer

Rolling tights will keep them protected. It also saves space and makes it easy to store a lot of tights in a single dresser drawer. Start by folding your tights in half. Then roll them up from the toe to the waistband. Place them in the drawer with the roll side on the bottom and the top. You’ll be surprised at home many pairs you can fit. Plus, you’ll be able to see all the tights you have with one glance. You can also store them like this in a basket. Just make sure that it isn’t woven, so your hosiery doesn’t snag.

2. Bag Your Pantyhose

For more delicate tights like ultra-sheer Eterno 20 Pantyhose or the Exclusive 10 Pantyhose with Glossy Finish, a great idea to keep them safe is to bag them. You don’t have to invest in expensive lingerie bags, you can use simple ziplock baggies. Make sure to use sandwich size or high so you don’t snag them in the zipper seal.

3. Put Them In A Hanging Shoe Organizer

Hanging organizers are a great space saver. Make sure to select one that has clear plastic pockets. Then simply roll your tights up and place them in the pockets. This will allow you to see them easily and keep as many pairs as you’d like.

4. Place Them In Old Jars

If you love the idea of upcycling, consider collecting your old food jars. Clear glass jars that once held mayonnaise, pickles, or jams are a great way to store your pantyhose. Since they are glass, not only will you be able to easily see your pantyhose, but you won’t have to worry about them snagging on the rim or sides of the jar. Simply roll the up and place them in jars. If you want you can even add a label and place them on a shelf for decorative and functional storage.

Once you have your hosiery neatly organized, you’ll save enough space you can get a few more styles. For more tips on caring for your hosiery, make sure to check out our blog at We offer tons of advice on keeping your tights looking brand new!

Choosing The Perfect Size Tights For Your Body

Choosing The Perfect Size Tights For Your Body

Whether you love opaque or sheers, colorful patterns or classic skin tones, what really matters when selecting your tights is choosing the right size. Choosing tights too small makes them vulnerable to damage and tears. Plus the inseam will be too low hang, making it hard to walk and force you to constantly adjust. Tights that are too big can sag, fall, and cause wrinkling around your knees and ankles.

How Tights And Pantyhose Are Sized

If you look at the size chart on any pair of our hosiery like the Alani 20 MIcrofiber Tights, you will see that the sizing is different than most clothing. Instead of sizes like an 8, 10, or 12, you will find that the size depends on your height and weight. This is because most tights are extremely flexible and can stretch to fit a variety of sizes.

What About Plus-Size Tights?

Plus-size tights like the Extra 50 Queen Size Tights use a similar sizing chart. However, they are designed to add more support and larger waistbands to avoid chafing and pinching. Higher quality plus size brands, like the European styles carried at, also have a little more space in the thighs and buttocks to help highlight your beautiful curves.

What Size Is Right For Me?

Finding your perfect size is simple. You take your height and weight and find the size that is recommended on the chart. Some styles that use a thicker material like the Arctic 500 Microfiber Tights will also include your hip measurements. Thicker materials have less stretch than thinner materials, so taking your hip size into account will ensure that they aren’t too tight on your waist or cause a “muffin top.”

What If I’m In Between Sizes?

Sometimes you’ll fall in love with the perfect pair of tights but your size is right between two different sizes on the grid. In that case, it’s always better to go with the larger size. Tights are designed to fit tightly along your legs, hips, and waist. It’s better that tights are slightly larger than having to fight to get into a pair that are a little too small, as they will still fit snugly.

At, we have sizes available for every body type. With our handy size charts, you’ll be able to order the perfect fit every single time. No matter what size you are, we have a style that you’ll feel confident and comfortable in!
