In this day and age, it’s perfectly acceptable to want more from everyday life. From mobile phone apps that plan out holiday to kitchen gadgets that can whip up a three course meal before youtime to set the dinner table. The same can be said for tights, given that our hosiery collection need to do a lot more than look pretty (which coincidentally all of them do). Taking the hassle out of our hectic day, I’ve rounded up some sheers with fabulous superpowers. You have been warned though ladies, you may want the entire super-gang…
First things first – anti-cellulite tights that help wage a war against lumps & bumps. It’s common knowledge that only a certain few can escape the clutches of cellulite, with orange peel making an appearance at some point in our lives. Showing us all that it needn’t be an issue, British brand Charnos have gone about creating the perfect pair of sheers to help fight back. Made from a lightweight 15 denier, the Medium Energising Support Tights are a must have for all sheer enthusiasts. Along with delivering a graduated compression system to keep our legs perky and energised (see more about this in last week’s Laura’s Choice), the tights treat pins to a luxurious combination of Vitamin E, Sea Kelp and Shea Buttermproving the skin tone, you’re left with younger looking legs, all without having to seek a detox boot camp A true superpower if you ask me!
Next on my list are toeless tights. Perhaps not the most obvious choice when it comes to sheers with super powers, but the toe-free creations have certainly saved me from wardrobe malfunctions on more than one occasion. Ideal for peep toe enthusiasts and those who adore their weekly pedicure, toeless tights make it possible for you to show off both, completed with a clever toe loop or bandFrom Falke, the Shelina Toeless Tights are just what the hosiery doctor ordered. The sister product of the bestselling Shelina Tights, these will give you the most natural bare leg look on the market thanks to their ultra-sheer appearance and fab range of skin tone shades. With a neat & discreet toe band to finish off the sheer leg, you’re free to debut those open toed shoes without having to go hosiery free for the day. Three cheers for versatility!
Of course, no melting pot of superhero powers is complete without invisibility – the power to go undetected. Earning their superhero stripes are seamless tights, making sure that regardless of how form fitting that LBD is, no-one need know about your decision to wear hosiery. As the name suggests, these sheers are completely seam free, eliminating the risk of any tell-tale lines. For a luxurious treat, invest in the Fatal 15 Seamless Tights from Wolford that deliver the ultimate seam free style. Created from a fine 15 denier, the transparent tights are seamless from the waist down (with an exception for the seam where the leg of the hosiery is attached to the wide, flat waistband). Delightfully smooth against legs, the versatile sheers can be worn at the waist or the hip, making these an excellent choice for . Likewise, the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights also provide the same seam free joy, with five shades to take your pick from (including three gorgeous skin tone shades).
And last but by no means least, sheers that aid you in your daily battle against those pesky ladders. A true hosiery nightmare if ever I did see one, ladder resist tights are the easiest way to transform your day, be left with an unsightly ladder ruining your look. From Aristoc, the Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights are a hosiery drawer essential, combining an ultra fine 5 denier fabric with the revolutionary LYCRA® Fusion fibres. All thanks this special yarn technology, stitches are bonded together to stop those snags transforming into bigger holes and runs. With no need to pack that SOS bottle of nail varnish (we’ve all done it!), these are sheers that will never let you down. For even more anti-ladder power, find solace in the Run Resist Sheer Tights from Charnos. Created with the similar textile technology, these will make sure that small snags will never be anything more.
Super hero sheers, I salute you!
Until next time…
