Here at MyTights we?re surrounded by images of perfect pins every day.? But we know that loads of women don?t feel confident about their legs ? in fact, a study by monthly glossy Glamour Magazine found that 97% of women have at least one negative thought about their body EVERY DAY.? But instead of bemoaning your thunder thighs/cankles/blotchy skin/massive pores/obvious veins, why not learn to love what you?ve got ? and make the best of what you do have?
Some celebs use body foundation, but we find that it?s just not practical for any situation in which you have to actually wear clothes.? Sure, it evens out your skin tone, but it also stains your clothes, is tricky to apply ? and if it rains, forget it.? The solution?? We?ve discovered that skin perfecting hosiery is the way forward.? It?s quick, easy, inexpensive and instant ? what could be better?
The trick is to pick sheer tights that are a little thicker than your average sheer ? anything from 20 denier upwards will give a little light coverage that can cover scars, blemishes and uneven skintone.? Choose a shade as close as possible to your natural skintone and they?ll give you a flawless, natural look.

I think the recent news about the singer Adele having a baby has only served to bring her even closer to being our ideal woman. For the longest time she has been a style ambassador for the larger lady and I’m sure has been instrumental in getting High Street shops to finally embrace the use of real sized women in their ad campaigns. Long may it continue!
The curvy shape of larger ladies lends itself so well to great undergarments, including fuller figure hosiery. Gone are the days when one size fits all and now you select the sizing of your tights and hold ups in the same way that you choose the size of your underwear – or outerwear. Take care with your choices and and it can serve you well.
Plus Size Opaque Tights
Let’s start with opaque tights, the greatest of all basics. Pretty Polly fly the flag for British design. Pretty Polly Curves 60 Denier Opaque Tights are a solid black all rounder with built in shaping. The kind of tights that wear once and you’ll wear forever. Cette Dublin Plus Size Tights are another great mid price 60 denier staple which are available up to a size 32. These tights come in three different shades of black so you can choose the tone that suits. Transparenze Denmark Plus Size Tights are another hero basic. A matte 60 denier finish and a range of lovely autumnal colours will keep these firmly at the top of your drawer. Now, you’ll have heard me go on and on about Falke and my trusty German favourites are also big advocates of size.
