Men’s Tights – an Advice Guide!

At MyTights we get many enquires for men about wearing tights. We approached the blogger Hosiery For Men to respond to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive, and he kindly put together this advice and guidance for our male customers!



What kinds of tights are best for men?

It’s really up to you! The breadth of styles these days is better than ever.

Just like women, men’s tastes differ and individuals will have their own preferences.

However, in general men prefer opaque tights. These are thicker, warmer and more robust than sheer or semi-sheer tights. They will also generally last longer and perhaps survive the greater amount of wear than men might expect from them.

Opaque tights also tend to most popular as they provide insulation and warmth. That is one of the main reasons men wear tights; especially men working outdoors or taking part in outdoor activities.

When worn under trousers some opaque tights look just like socks, and that is perhaps an advantage for those men who might be a bit worried that someone could tell they are wearing tights.


How can I get tights that will fit me?

Men will generally need larger sizes that fit taller people. It is essential to pay close attention to the sizing information provided, and check the height information in particular.

Key factors for men will be the leg length and a brief that has plenty of depth. You should also look for tights that have a good percentage of Lycra/Elastane – this is a type of yarn that provides stretch and also ensure that the tights fit closely and mould themselves comfortably to your legs.

One-size tights are not usually a good option for men. Plus size ranges are however worth looking at.

In general, better quality and more expensive brands provide a better range of sizes and good quality features. I would recommend brands such as Falke and Wolford in particular as many men have provided such good feedback about their fit and quality.


How do I put tights on?

It goes without saying that tights are, in general, more delicate than socks. They need to be handled carefully. It is best to keep nails trimmed, and special hosiery gloves can also be useful.

If you are wearing them for the first time these are useful steps to follow:


1. Sit down on a chair or your bed.

2. Roll the tights down to the toe on one leg, and then pull them carefully over the toe and heel. Repeat this for the other foot.

3. Now pull up each leg – equally stretched – up to over the knees.

4. Now standing up, pull the tights up carefully and evenly up to the crotch.

5. Finally pull the tights up over the waist


Are there tights made specifically for men?

Yes, there are tights made for men as well as unisex tights. The range of men’s tights has expanded greatly in recent years and more manufacturers are designing and marketing men’s tights as part of their product range.


Is it okay for men to wear women’s tights?

Yes, of course. The quality and sizing options in many brands of women’s tights has improved greatly and many men are happy to buy tights made for women when they know the quality and fit will be right.

Many manufacturers are aware that their tights are popular with men and ensure that their sizing choices are more generous.

Don’t be put off by packaging that is aimed at women. It’s the quality of the tights that counts.


How should I wash my tights?

Some people wash their tights after every wear. But it’s okay to wear them a few times and then wash them if that suits.

The important thing is to wash them with care and not damage them.

The best way is to wash by hand. Take your tights, turn them inside out and soak them in a sink or bowl of lukewarm water. Add a small amount of laundry detergent; the best kind is the type made for delicates or for hand washing.

Let the tights soak for half an hour to an hour. Now rinse and rinse again with cool or cold water until there are no more suds.

Squeeze them gently to remove water. Do not wring them dry as this can damage the tights.

Hang them to dry in your shower. Don’t put them on top of a hot radiator or in the spin dryer as this can also damage the yarns in the tights.

You can also wash tights in the washing machine. If you do this you will need to place them in a special hosiery bag. Make sure also that you wash them on a delicates cycle at a low temperature.

Harpers Bazaar LOVE MyTights!

 harper-bazaar-jon-aston-coverSomehow, we’re nearing the end of July already. How did that happen?! Sadness erupts when we think how fast summer is flying by, however Harper’s Bazaar reminded us that autumn is full of fabulous fashion, not least with all the hosiery we can wear to protect our legs from the plummeting weather. The UK version of the famous fashion magazine’s August 2015 issue is ahead of the curve with cool blues and the Jonathon Aston 40D Opaque Tights provided to them by none other than

Available in an array of shades, these 40 denier tights are the perfect way to add some colour to an otherwise simple outfit. Minimalist fashion is trending, which could explain all the monochromatic ensembles that we’re seeing of late. Great with plain black, white or grey dresses, coloured tights are so chic because they embody simplicity and clean lines to create a look that wouldn’t look out of place in the glamorous 60’s era.

Pamela Mann hosiery is featured in the editorial as well. The model sports deep teal opaque tights, with bright purple pumps. If you love this style as much as we do, we suggest Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights in Dark Teal to replicate it!

Oh Kimye! Here’s where you went wrong…

kim-k-hold-ups-2Now we don’t know about you, but when it comes to being styled, Kanye West wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of our list. Like we needed any proof that letting your husband style you was a bad idea, Kimye this week took  it to a whole new level with their recently published photo portfolio titled Kanye, Juergen and Kim. It is reported that the Yeezus singer styled his wife for the (quite frankly bonkers) outdoor shoot – where Kim wears a nude bodysuit with black hold ups and extra tall black stilettos, sprawled over what appears to be a giant heep of dirt. Right…. Now, while we aren’t expecting anyone to run to the shops to mirror her look, Kanye might have been onto something with certain elements of her look.



Starting with her black hold ups (something we very much approve of), achieve a similar look to Kim with the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Denier Hold Ups. These hold ups benefit from a chic 15 denier base, reinforced toe and give you a chic look, minus the  construction machinery, open fields, and a pile of dirt!bas-chic-hold-up spanx-tank-fullslip-main












Next is the nude bodysuit. Now we don’t want you walking out of the house with just the bodysuit on – maybe someone should have told Kanye that shapewear goes under our clothes! But as well as giving you fabulous shaping control, shaping suits can look chic when layered with pencil skirts and dresses. Go for the Spanx Trust Your Thinstincts Tank Full Slip in Nude to nail the look.



kim-k-hold-ups-4 kim-k-polyvore
















Now it is time to fill in the missing pieces! Pair the bodysuit with a form fitting black pencil skirt and high heeled boots. Trade the star’s metallic gold brazier for a different accent item such as a gold clutch or necklace.

Now THAT’S where you went wrong, Kanye!

Hosiery Capsule: The Office Edition

Dressing for the office is amongst the trickiest sartorial tasks you’ll ever have to face. While some workplaces insist on professional attire with longer hemlines and tailoring, others are much more relaxed and opt for a more smart casual vibe. Which begs the question:  what makes for the perfect office look? We’ve found the answer to the age old conundrum, and it likes in none other than hosiery. As sad as it may be, surveys have suggested that 70% of people believe how you dress in the workplace affects your career prospects, which is why we’ve rounded up a collection of office hosiery must haves. From the obligatory sheers through to confidence boosting shapewear, have your office wear covered.

1. Nude hosiery: perfect for the summer

No matter how warm the weather becomes, we recommend opting for a sheer tight to perfect your professional look. It is vital for to invest in a variety of nude sheers – an everyday staple for the working woman. We suggest a range between 5 and 15 denier, which covers you for both summer scorchers and chillier spring days.

2. Black Hosiery Staples

Everyone woman needs at least two pairs of black hosiery in their office collection. We recommend that one of your two should be opaque and the other sheer, to account for all weather conditions (as we know what the British weather is like!)  This is an absolute must- no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

3. Fishnet Fancies

It is easy to go wrong with fishnets in the office, however when done correctly –  you’re upping your office game. The trick is to stick to classic styles, layering over sheers if you require a little coverage.

4. Shapewear saviour

When you look great, you feel great. FACT. A fantastic way to boost your confidence in the workplace is with shapewear. Discreet enough to remain hidden beneath your work dresses, you’ll be the envy of your colleagues.













5. High Heel Heroes

High heels hate us as much as we hate them. Footliners are the best way to protect your feet from blistering.

6. Mixing it up: Prints

Last but not least, dressing the office doesn’t have to be all about sheers and opaques. Patterned tights are a great way of injecting some personality into your look and making you stand out from the crowd. The trick is to opt for muted prints, such as classic polkadots so as to remain professional. It’s also a fab way of making your outfit a little dressier should yuo be invited for impromptu after work drinks.

Throwback Thursday to the 1960s!

TwiggyThis week our Throwback Thursday is dedicated to the fashion icon that is Twiggy! The 60’s was all about expressing yourself in terms of fashion, and this extended to your legwear. It was out with the dated knee length numbers and in with miniskirts, vibrant colours and testing the boundaries of style. Twiggy was renowned for her colourful tights and wearing extravagant patterns, and with 60’s style coming back in an abundance this season, we thought we’d round up our favourite coloured tights for you to nail the trend, and show you just how easy they are to wear. While a more conservative colour palette may be best for the office, after hours is your time to embrace a more playful persona. From weekend lunches to nights out with the girls, here’s our one stop guide to getting coloured tights right!

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 2.30.47 PMColoured tights can be worn in a number of ways depending on your style preference. If you prefer a more uniformed look, Twiggy was known to pair her tights with a matching colour ensemble. But to stand out from the crowd, she also loved to wear coloured tights with a contrasting colour for a real statement look. Here are our top 5 coloured picks: Pamela Mann Opaques in (1) Flo Orange (2)Flo Yellow and (3)Flo Green (4)Velvet Green Jonathon Aston Opaques and (5) Berry Jonathon Aston Sheers!

Looks We Love: Cool, White Summer

cool-summerAt MyTights, we’ve always got one eye on the catwalks to see what’s trending in the world of hosiery. One show that particularly caught our eye this season was Giambattista Valli’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The epitome of cool and elegance, the show oozed sophistication and featured an abundance of summer hosiery in neutral shades of white, ivory and cream. Perfect for wearing at this time of year, especially with the mini-heatwave we’ve been experiencing of late (let’s hope it lasts!), we thought it would be a great idea to pull together our favourite white hosiery, and show you how you can style this often difficult colour.

To nail this style it’s all about choosing colours within similar realms. What makes it so elegant is its simplicity, so it gives you a great chance to experiment with different textures, fabrics, and patterns.

If you normally wouldn’t wear lace tights, trying out the Jonathon Aston Sweet Roses Tights in Ivory is a must. Beautifully crafted using a cut and sew technique, these

tights are perfect for pulling off your summer looks. Finish off the ensemble with cute summer dresses in lighter fabrics, mixing in some fringe detailing and lace for extra style points.

Another great pick from Jonathon Aston are the Sheer Coloured Tights, available in 19 colours including chic white. A solid white sheer is great for wearing with just about anything, and don’t be afraid to experiment with fun textures such as feathers or sequins. We’ve covered lace and plainer styles, now it’s time to discuss printed tights! Anyone with any fashion know-how will know that spots are everywhere this season Subtle, versatile and bang on trend, pull off the look with the Wolford Nola Tights, which feature an exquisite side seam made up of individual polkadots.
