On the first day of Christmas MyTights gave to me…

So what if our mums have stopped buying us advent calendars every year – you are never too old to count down the days until Christmas.  The festive season (or maybe it is just the mulled wine) has left us feeling all warm and fuzzy towards all you hosiery devotees out there so we have created our very own advent calendar to help you tick off the days until the Christmas break.

We’ve put together a selection of 24 great products from some of our favourite brands and we’ll be offering a 25% discount on a different one each day.

We’ve selected a choice of tights, stockings, hold ups, shapewear and socks and each one will be discounted for one day only between the 1st and the 24th December.   Instead of a picture of a robin or a slightly melted chocolate, why not get a brand spanking pair of new tights from your advent calendar?  From Spanx Power Panties to give your figure a bit of a va va voom for those Christmas and new year parties, to sexy La Perla stockings. From classic designs like Falke’s Donna Tights, to the colourful, youthful designs from the Miss Oroblu range.  Whether you are planning to give yourself a well earned Christmas treat or if you are looking for presents for a friend, favourite niece or a girlfriend we have made sure there is something for everyone.

Remember you will have to be fast, each item is discounted for only one day.  You can find out which of these gorgeous products has been discounted by checking our website each day.  Or you can follow us on Twitter or Facebook to get a daily update and be the first to hear about our discounts and offers in the run up to Christmas.

We hope you enjoy our calendar and our Christmas offers.  Merry Christmas!

Presents for the man in your life…

They might be thought of as boring dad present, we at still maintain that men’s socks make great gifts so, to get you started, we’ve picked out a couple of products that represent a little bit of simple luxury he would never think to buy for himself.

If your man secretly fancies himself as a bit of a 007, the Falke silk men’s socks will give a little Bond-esque polish to your man’s feet. They really are the perfect evening sock and look especially good with a dinner jacket.  Not for pedestrian occasions, these are made from pure Japanese silk and delicately crafted for a perfect fit.   This makes them especially good for the chap that has become more accustomed to less formal footwear as their lightweight fabric will slip comfortably into proper shoes and ease the pressure from stiff leather.

Aspiring Donald Drapers will appreciate the Falke Airport Short Men’s Sock which really is the ultimate business sock.  Falke’s ingenious design has fine cotton on the inside and temperature regulating merino wool on the outside making them ideal for all day wear.  What’s more, for those that want to cut it in the boardroom but still show a little personality, they come in a rich scarlet as well as the more conventional grey and black.

These are just a couple of choice examples from our range for men that will allow you to spoil his feet with some great men’s gifts for Christmas. We’ll be covering a great selection of present ideas on this blog in the run up to Christmas – next time, presents that will bowl over even difficult to please friends.

Fashion for thought – Party joys, Beyonce and over indulging!

As much as we love a pair of classic black tights, its time to face facts – fashion tights are dominating in the style stakes. And to be honest, we are kind of glad. After all, ‘tis the season to be jolly, which really means ‘tis the season to party, and with a million and one Christmas parties to attend, its too cold for bare legs, so we need to stock up on a different pair of tights for every occasion. Cue MyTights, we have every kind of fashionable pair that you could possibly dream from Bebaroque’s chic gold studded Brassy tights to Aristoc’s uber glossy liquid shine tights.

Sheer pattern tights are HUGE, especially in celebville, every week we spot a new star sporting a pair. But with temperatures dipping into the minus’ around the country, it may not seem very practical. Well we’ve got that covered! A nifty little trick is to wear them with a pair of over the knees, that way your can rock the trend without having to freeze for your love of fashion! For example, take a pair of Pamela Mann Sheer Hearts Tights and add a pair of Wolford Velvet Soft Over Knees over them.

If you’re worried about your figure this party season, then Beyonce recently revealed her little secret behind eliminating visible lumps and bumps underneath clothes; Spanx plus four, yes FOUR, pairs of tights! Initially our first reaction was ‘ouch, that’s sounds rather uncomfortable’ and then our thoughts rapidly drifted to ‘wow, if Beyonce goes to that extreme, then what hope do the rest of us have’! But then I’m sure the press couldn’t care less if us mere mortals over indulged this Christmas! I digress, if the likes of Beyonce and Gwenyth Palthrow addicted to the wonders of Spanx, the great, anti – lumps and bumps miracle worker, then I can’t help but feel we ought to try them too! Yes Spanx, the ultimate body shaper that allows us to squeeze into that special body con dress, which we love because it’s uber tight and sexy, yet hate because it’s err… uber tight and sexy! But Ladies, Spanx really does work, its been tried, tested and proven. Why else would so many celebrities swear by it? And with a range that caters to our every unflattering body conscious need, it’s a definite must have for the Christmas Party season.

Oh, and if like us you feel like all the food and alcohol may start taking its toll, ShaBoTu’s calorie burning shapewear may be right up your alley. Scientifically proven to help you burn up to 12% more calories, this new revolutionary range of shapewear will definitely be at the top of our Christmas list!

Christmas Gift Special

Winter has begun to bite – and oh how it bites – and there is no escaping the fact that Christmas is approaching.   Cold weather + Christmas means winter tights, stockings and socks make the best kind of presents so we’ve put together a present list to satisfy even the most demanding recipients.


It’s Mum’s job to take care of everything and everyone at Christmas.  When she finally gets to put her feet up on Christmas day – make sure they are cosy, warm and clad in cashmere.  Pantharella’s Rib Ankle Socks or their Cashmere Striped Ankle Sock come in soft pastel colours and at 85% cashmere it’s hard to see how they could be more luxurious.

For a cashmere feel for the whole leg, the Falke Elegance Cashmere Blend Tights come in a selection of deep, classic colours that are great for accessorising a winter wardrobe.  Your mum will surely appreciate the slimming and elongating effect of the wide ribs on these tights.


If you want to impress the unimpressable – teenage daughters, nieces and goddaughters will be blown away if you buy them a piece of this season’s hottest trend: suspender tightsHenry Holland have a seriously funky range that have been sported by a range of celebrities and are the must have item this Christmas.   We’ve talked alot about suspender tights on this blog lately, so if you want more detailed advice on the right suspender tights for the budding fashionista in your life, visit my previous post here.

Another gorgeous gift for a teenager are the Miss Oroblu Creative Tights.  Their bright floral print might be a bold statement but these tights are both beautiful and modern.  The pattern runs high up the leg so these can be worn with shorts or a mini but their thick 80 denier tights will mean that teenage legs are still warm and well covered.

Girlfriend or Wife

Now, some advice for the boys – you can’t go wrong with quality.  Whether you are looking for something to complete a sexy underwear set or just for an extra stocking filler, choosing from the ranges by well respected and failsafe brands like Falke and Wolford will make sure your present delights.   The Falke Seidenglatt Thigh Highs for example have a lovely wide lace band at the top which looks gently suggestive but still classy.  This style also comes in a good range of colours which means you may even be able to match it perfectly to that knicker and bra set!

The ladylike look is big this season so you might also want to consider something like the Jonathan Aston Seam and Heel Lycra Tights or stockings.  Seamed tights and stockings always look wonderfully sophisticated and will add a little vintage glamour to any outfit.

Lastly, I know it sounds obvious but before buying ALWAYS make sure you check the detailed size guide which is available on every product page on our website.

For a full selection of the best gift items on our website you can check out the Christmas gifts section which is brimming with great present ideas.  Keep checking the blog for more posts on the best gifts for the men in your life, as well as the best gifts for friends, and great stocking fillers.

A Royal Wedding

So Clarence house have announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton are to marry next year and – whether you are a royalist or a republican – you’ve got to admit that that is going to one stylish wedding party and Kate Middleton’s dress will undoubtedly be the subject of some intense speculation.  It would of course be inappropriate of us – and probably too early –  to speculate about what a future Queen of England might be wearing under her wedding dress.  But if the MyTights team ever get a chance to have a girly wedding chat with Kate Middleton this is what we’ll be recommending.

Kate has already exhibited a sure foot when it comes to her simple, pared down style so maybe she’ll choose something like the Falke Seidenglatt Hold Ups.  These hold ups come in a classic soft white which glimmers with an attractive mother of pearl lustre.

Alternatively, she might choose the Trasparenze Athena Bridal Hold ups which come in both ivory and pure white.   The thick band of lace at the top of these hold ups is gorgeous and just what you need to look sexy but tasteful for the big day.

Incidentally, we think that hold ups are a winning choice for your wedding day as they combine the sexiness of stockings with the freedom of movement needed for that all important first dance.  Particularly if you have chosen an elaborate dress with a number of layers, you will also be much cooler than with tights – essential for when the lights go down and the party really gets going.

Of course Kate is not the only one getting married next year .  The official wedding season might seem like a long way off, I know there are still plenty of you out there thinking very intently about the what to wear on the big day.  This is only a taster of what has available for brides to be.  Visit the bridal hosiery section on our website for the full selection of beautiful bridal products that will be sure make you feel special on your big day.

This Week,’s range of fabulous tights were featured in Look Magazines high street catwalk pages. With winter officially upon us, the article focused on how to rock the latest high street  looks, showcasing all the new ‘it’ trends this season.

First off, Look magazine investigated “The hottest online buys this week”. Creating the much loved uniform look, matched with a tartan print skirt and on trend faux sheepskin lined boots were Falke’s over the knee socks. Over the knee socks have become a growing trend often seen on celebrities such as Pixie Lott and Alex Curran. With a fantastic range of over the knee socks, can help you recreate the look! Plain, stripey, cotton, wool, we have  a wide variety to choose from!

Also featured was Henry Holland’s ever so popular Lace Panel Tights, teamed with a beautiful faux fur jacket.  Since we’ve had them in, these tights have been flying off the shelves – the demand for them has been high as such, that we are currently out of stock! However, fear not, you can still achieve the look with the Henry Holland’s Lace Footless tights (now only £9.00), Look recommends that you:  “add lace tights to take you from day to night.” Such a simple technique that will help you transform your outfit from daywear to eveningwear. With a double whammy from the cool young designer, also featured were Henry Holland’s Bandana Suspender Tights, teamed with a bright coat and a pair of heeled ankle booties.

Next up were a pair of opaque tights by Charnos. Perfect for the chilly winter season, you can never go wrong with a pair of opaque tights. Classic black opaque’s are still a fashionista favourite and can be worn literally with anything. Our Pretty Polly Soft Opaque Tights are a great pair and for a limited time they are on offer for £4.20! Everybody loves a bargain so make sure you get yourself a pair quick whilst they’re still in stock! If you would like to inject a bit of colour into your winter wardrobe, why not take a look at our range of Opaque Coloured Tights, who says you can be warm and stylish at the same time?

Levante’s ever so popular hosiery, regularly pops up in publication pages, so we were pleased to see a range of our Levante products being featured in the ‘Black is Back’ fashion pages. Firstly, were a pair of Levante opaque tights, and as mentioned earlier, opaque’s are great for the winter season. Still playing on the over the knee trend but being fashioned for a gothic glam look were  Levante’s 50 Denier Suede Matt Opaque Stockings, which are great alternative to opaque tights. Just like Look team them with a black LBD and a pair of to-die-for heels to achieve a sexy evening look. Last but not least were a pair of Levante Knitted tights in cream, which added a subtle hint of colour to the outfit. Wool tights are the perfect winter warmers, and when channelling the gothic glam look, cream tights are great for producing an erie feminine like feel.

Feeling saucy…Suspender Tights

Combining the saucyness of a suspender belt with the practicality and wearability of a pair of tights.  Suspender tights are a hosiery revolution and it is also this season’s hottest trend!  The height of cool and sported by every celebrity worth their salt – it seems you guys can’t get enough of them!

Designer and celebrity darling Henry Holland is undoubtedly the king of the suspender tights.  Henry has one the most celebrity packed contact books in fashion and, despite his suspender creations gracing red carpets for some months now, the “Henry effect” shows no signs of abating.  As if proof were needed, model of the moment, Daisy Lowe has been seen out and about recently in the funky House of Holland Bandana Suspender Tights which are a must have for that rock and roll look.

If you want to flash your sexy suspender tights – and lets face it thats the only way to wear these little beauties – then you can with the new Henry Holland Chain Suspenders.  The eyecatching gold suspender strap effect is fun and flirty without being too outré.  A little naughty perhaps but still safe enough for nice girls. These beauties have been spotted on countless celebrities including Pixie Lott (pictured), Una from The Saturdays, Tulisa from N-Dubz and the Strictly Come Dancing contestants!

The real prize this season, however, are the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights.  Bright young things such as Pixie Geldof and Frankie from the Saturdays have been spotted in them and customers have been clamouring for them as a result.  These tights have sold out up and down the country but don’t despair – you can order your pair on the MyTights website for delivery in early December.

Don’t tell Henry but if you want your suspender tights fix before December then you can snap up these Pretty Polly Suspender Tights.  Despite being a whole £4 cheaper they are still achingly cool and virtually indistinguishable from the Henry Hollands Super Suspender Tights sported by the likes of Pixie Lott and The Saturdays.

If detail is your thing then these Fuyo Tights from Trasparenze feature cute little mock attachments and adjustable loops which could fool someone into thinking they really are suspenders.  With their pinstripe design down the leg you can get a look that is bang on trend but with a slight twist that will make you stand out from the crowd.

Suspender tights have been flying off the shelves and that’s because this is one celebrity trend that is not only super wearable but highly affordable.   It is not often that you can add a bit of celebrity dazzle and designer chic to your wardrobe for less than £15 so grab them quickly before they are all gone.
