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. Check out our full selection to find the pair that’s perfect for you.

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.

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

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!

What Is Denier? Why Does It Matter?

What Is Denier? Why Does It Matter?

When browsing the pantyhose and tights selection on, you may notice that almost every pair has a denier number. Denier is a measurement of the thickness of the yarn used in a pair of hosiery. The higher the denier number, they thick and more opaque tights. Here is a guide to the denier measurements and how you can incorporate the different thicknesses into your wardrobe

  • 10 Denier: 10 denier is the sheerest type of hosiery you can get. They are often referred to as “ultra sheer.” 10 denier hosiery enhances the legs and provides a flawless, invisible finish. They do snag relatively easily, so it is important that for 10 denier tights you always invest in quality to avoid runs.

Example: Catwalk10 Denier Ultra Sheer Tights

  • 15 Denier: 15 denier is still very sheer but offer slightly more coverage than 10 denier tights. These are perfect for people who want more coverage of their legs to hide imperfections. Both 10 and 15 denier tights are perfect for a bare leg look.

Example: Brazil NoWaist Band Pantyhose

  • 20 Denier: 20 denier is the last of the truly sheer thicknesses. They offer a lot of coverage but are thick enough to be nearly impervious to snags if you invest in a quality pair. 20 denier is perfect for a sheer look if you are active or special occasions like formal events to look your best.

Example: Alani 20 Microfiber Tights

  • 40 Denier: 40 denier is a very popular model. They are semi-opaque. They slim the legs and provide a lot of coverage. However, they still show a perfect peek of skin. They are ideal to wear with daytime casual looks. They are also opaque enough to add a splash of color.

Example: Alba Chiara 40 Tights

  • 60 Denier: 60 denier tights are a daily wardrobe staple. They are thick enough to wear carefree, but still opaque enough for the office. 60 denier tights are also very slimming. Pairing a black pair like the Cazzola Gaetano Sogni Fashion Tights in Nero with black shoes will create the illusion of legs for days.

Example: Coral 60 Ultra Soft 3D Opaque Tights With Satin Sheen

  • 80 Denier: 80 denier are very opaque and often very thick. These tights are ideal on cooler Fall nights. They are very slimming and can add a look of sophistication to any outfit. It’s very important though to never put your 80 denier tights in the dryer because it can ruin the stretch.

Example: Shimmer 80 Denier Opaque Tights

  • 100 Denier: Finally, 100 denier, the thickest and most opaque of all options. 100 denier is very soft and is perfect to help keep you warm in the wintertime. With a 100 denier tight, you can wear a skirt or dress in the winter and still keep very warm. They are a great option if you live in a cooler climate.

Example: Cortina 100 3D Opaque Tights

Which denier you choose depends entirely on how you plan to wear your hosiery. At, we have a wide variety of tights in all denier measurements. Not only do we offer a variety of thickness, but we also have a great array of colors, patterns, prints, and sizes for any need.

Tights Versus Leggings: When To Wear What

Tights Versus Leggings: When To Wear What

Tights and leggings are often used interchangeably. However, they are different types of legwear. Although they are both skin tight they have some major differences. Those differences determine what outfits to pair tights or leggings, how to wear them, and which you should purchase for the look you want. Here are the differences between tights and leggings and when to wear them.

What Are Tights?

Tights are a type of hosiery like pantyhose. However, unlike pantyhose, they are thicker and come in a broader array of colors, fabrics, and patterns. The best way to tell tights from leggings is that tights always have feet. A great example of tights is the Cortina 40 Semi-Opaque Tights in Bright Colors.

●    When To Wear Tights: Tights are designed to wear under clothing. They look great under dresses, skirts, shorts, and cropped pants. They can also be worn for warmth like the Artica 120 Tights in Wool And Cotton under clothing including pants.

What Are Leggings?

Leggings are essentially skin-tight pants. They are thick enough that you can’t see through them. They also rarely have feet. Leggings come in every kind of color and pattern you can imagine. They also come in a variety of different fabric options like the Eco-Friendly Leather Pants with a Crinkled Leg Design to microsuede like the Botanical Microsuede Leggings to even denim styles like the Denim Skimmer With Angled Hem. Leggings don’t just come in pant lengths, they come in cropped styles like the Capri Fashion Legings with Contrast Border

●    When To Wear Leggings: Leggings can be worn as pants. They pair great with your favorite t-shirts, sweaters, and blazer looks for the casual office. They can also be worn under dresses and skirts to keep you warm. Leggings are also the perfect attire for any physical activity where stretch and movement matters.

Now that you know the difference between tights and leggings, you can begin looking for your perfect pair of each. At we have all the legwear options you need from pantyhose to stockings to tights and leggings. All of our hosiery is from extremely high quality, European brands that will last no matter what style you choose. Check out our selection to find a look you’ll love.

How To Style Tights In The Springtime

How To Style Tights In The Springtime

With winter soon coming to an end, it’s time to start planning your spring wardrobe. Many of us welcome back the bright, fresh colors of spring and can’t wait to ditch the layers. However, in many places Spring is still pretty chilly, so it’s a good idea to plan some outfits that include tights to warm. Here are some fashionable ideas to get you started.

Go Bare Without The Chill

If you want a bare leg look, a pair of skin-toned tights is a great addition to your spring wardrobe. You can get the look of bare legs, without having to worry about staying warm. Plus you’ll get the added benefit of smoother, tighter looking skin. We recommend getting an invisible pair like the Alba Chiara 40 Tights available in a variety of natural skin tones. If it’s a little warmer out, but you’d still like to achieve a smooth leg look try wearing the Breeze Summer Panythose by Cecilia De Rafael.

Go For White Tights

During the fall and winter, dark, muted colors like black and navy pair perfectly with your wardrobe. In the summer, try a brighter neutral with the color white. Not only is white a perfect accompaniment to all your spring pastels, white tights also very on trend right now. Try the Invisible Ultra Sheer Tights in Bianco for a sheer look and the Bellissima Micro 90 Microfiber Opaque Tights in White for an opaque look. You can also consider experimenting with white fishnet like the Carmen Small Fishnet Tights in White on a warmer day.

Try A Pastel Look

There’s no better color scheme for spring then pastels. Pastel tights feel fresh and airy, but keep you warm. Check out the Brigitte 15 Denier Pantyhose that comes in a wide variety of beautiful sheer pastels. For a more opaque look try the Cortina 40 Semi-Opaque Tights in Bright Colors or the Trasparenze Oleandro Tights. If you want a bold look, try the Hamadryas Pantyhose. They come in two perfect-for-spring pastel floral prints that will turn any outfit into a statement.

Planning your spring wardrobe is easy when you add tights to your favorite looks. They’ll not only keep you warm no matter what the weather does, they’ll help you pull together your outfit. Check out for more tights you can incorporate in your springtime looks.

How Your Hosiery Factors In To The Biggest Fashion Trends Of 2020

How Your Hosiery Factors In To The Biggest Fashion Trends Of 2020

The latest fashion trends of the new year are rolling in, and we at are particularly excited about brainstorming all of the different ways we can pair beautiful European-made hosiery with any and all of these looks. The fashion trends hitting runways and walkways during the year 2020 are varied, and there really is something for anyone who wants to look chic and modern in their various looks. The top ways to pair hosiery with the top fashion trends of 2020 are:

  • Puff sleeves – In 2020 sleeves are getting bigger and hemlines are getting shorter, which creates the absolute perfect conditions for great hosiery. Puff sleeves are particularly dramatic and feminine, which makes us think that this look would look marvelous with an equally feminine pair of hose. Something simple, sleek, and elegant like our wide fishnet tights would be perfect.
  • Polka Dots – We can expect to see a massive resurgence of polka dots in 2020, especially since designers like Balenciaga and Balmain really featured these looks heavily during last year’s fashion weeks. If you’re not quite sold on a full polka dot look, there is no better place to incorporate this trend than your hosiery. Polka dot hosiery can be worn with office wear, with date-night outfits, to lighten up grunge throw-back looks, or in pattern mixing all without missing a beat.
  • Pleats – One of the new fashion trends we’re seeing make a first-year comeback in 2020 is pleats. For a long time, pleats were out and sleek flat-fronts were in, but this year is seeing pleats just about anywhere they can be squeezed in. Pleats can make some intimidated, as they want to embrace this trend in a sleek and trendy way, not an outdated way. Pairing pleats with an ultra-sheer pair of hosiery keeps that sex appeal going without ever becoming too much.
  • The feminine utility jumpsuit – Utility jumpsuits aren’t just for your mechanic anymore. These looks are being seen on high-fashion runways from Philip Lim to Jonathan Simkhai. One way to dress this up for a date-night look that has plenty of modern trendy edge is to roll up the bottom legs of the jumpsuit to let a trendy hosiery choice show through. Alongside a stiletto shoe and a statement clutch, hosiery like our Argo Fashion Tights by Trasparenze is just the feminine accessory you’re after.

If you’re looking for the perfect hosiery to embrace and enhance your 2020 looks, see what else we have in store at today!

Breaking Down The Top Tights Trends Of 2020

Breaking Down The Top Tights Trends Of 2020

2020 has just begun, and the latest and greatest tights trends of the year are rolling in! When it comes to tights, winter is really your time to shine, but you can wear even your most opaque tights well into the spring with all of your favorite springtime outfits. If you’re gearing up to ready your tights wardrobe, a few picks we suggest prioritizing are:

  • Polka dot tights – Polka dots are expected to be absolutely massive in the fashion world in 2020, and there is no better place to embrace this trend than through hosiery. Polka dot tights can be used to make pattern-mixing seamless, to add a little flair to business wear, to add whimsical sexiness to a date night outfit, or to wear with tailored shorts to bring your favorite summer pieces into the cooler weather seasons. When pattern mixing, you can pair a small polka dot tight with a larger polka dot pattern, you can mix with striped looks, and you can do the classic pairing of polka dot tights with florals.
  • Decked out in diamonds – 2020 isn’t about the diamonds on your finger, your wrist, or your neck, it’s all about the diamonds on your legs! One huge trend we’re really loving for the new year is diamond patterned tights, which can be found textured, in diamond pattern plaids, and in diamond shaped embellishments. With florals or with sleek sophisticated looks, diamond pattern tights bring out a certain versatile retro-vintage appeal.
  • Bright colors – Color is going nowhere in terms of tights, and this year is screaming brighter is better. A throwback vintage appeal seems to be a trend across the board, with this look harking back to the mod-style of the late 1960’s. Opaque brightly colored tights are accenting mini-skirts or mini-shorts, bringing out colors in patterned tops, and meeting at the ankle with a delightful chunky bootie. Invest in brightly colored tights and get ready to perfect that eyeliner wing to really embrace the quirky fun of 2020.
  • Leopard goes nowhere – 2019 was really big on leopard prints, and this is a trend that is rolling right over into this year. If you haven’t invested in a great pair of leopard tights yet, the good news is it’s not too late.

At, we want to help you to embrace all of the hosiery trends of the new year. If you’re looking for the perfect pair to accent all of your 2020 styles, see what we have in store at today!
