Laura’s Choice: Wedding Season!

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

The wedding season is upon us! You’ve found THE dress, the best man has coiffed his speech to perfection, and your table decorations are everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Now all you need is some beautiful hosiery to match! Whether you’re the blushing bride, the hungover groom or the reluctant bridesmaid, MyTights.com have a fantastic selection of wedding hosiery to hand. From silk socks for guys through to the obligatory wedding day garter, we have just the thing to leave your legs looking their best on the special day. Now just to make sure you get to the church on time!

 

 

 

The Bride

Let’s face it, the bride is the centre of attention on every wedding day. With all eyes on your walk down the aisle, it’s vital that every inch of your look is perfect, including your hosiery! Looking for a classic bare leg look? The Wolford Transparency 10 Tights could be just the ticket. Appearing like you’ve braved bare legs, these 10 denier tights boast a beautifully natural finish and all the luxury features that Wolford are renowned for. And what’s more, with their lightweight finish, you won’t overheat no matter how long the train on your dress!

Or if you want something a little more romantic as you say your vows, check out the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, with a sumptuous lace effect and vintage backseam. For those of you who embrace all of the age-old traditions with gusto, the Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter is a must. Staying in place no matter how many pictures you pose for, the lace and ribbon effect makes for a fabulous finishing touch to your gown.

The Bridal Party

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Upstaging the bride may be the ultimate wedding day sin, but that doesn’t mean the bridal party can’t look their best. For a rear that even bridesmaid extraordinaire Pippa Middleton would be proud of, how about trying out the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘butt-lets’ that slot into pockets and give your derriere a lift! For mothers of the bride, it has to be the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. Offering a ‘no hosiery’ look but with failsafe LYCRA® Fusion technology, your legs will not only look flawless, but remain free from ladders from the ceremony to the after-party. If your dress is on the plain side, what better way to take your style up a notch than with the elegant Oroblu Adelle Tights? Covered in an array of dainty dots, these patterned gems are not only on trend but have a sheer to waist brief, meaning any length of hemline can work.

For the guests 

Whether it’s a distant cousin or a work colleague, looking fabulous for a wedding is a must! The great thing about being a guest rather than playing a part in a wedding is that you can really experiment with different kind of hosiery to accessorize your dress. One such way to do that is with seams, and, getting into the wedding spirit, we love the Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights. These 15 denier sheers have a slender backseam culminating in the word ‘LOVE’ etched on each ankle – how romantic! Or how about opting for a pair of fishnet tights? For something a little different to the norm, make a beeline for the Charnos Honeycomb Net Tights with a fine mesh fabric resembling honeycomb itself. Another perk of being a guest is that you needn’t worry about showing yourself up on the dance floor. Heels aren’t always forgiving, so make sure your feet stay refreshed with a pair of the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, taking the pressure away from your feet.

The Groom

 

Falke Tiago Men's Short Socks

Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks

Because it’s not all about the bride! Believe it or not, the groom plays a fairly big part in the day too, so it’s important they look suitably dapper. For a classic wedding day look, grab a pair of the Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks, made with 98% cotton for a beautifully soft finish and keeping your feet cool all day long. Or if you’re the kind of guy who likes to experiment with fashion, the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box should be your port of call. With four funky socks (spots, stripes and everything in between), the hardest part will be choosing which pair to sport on the big day.

With wedding pictures set to take pride of place on your mantelpiece, you’ll want to look as trim as possible. With that in mind, invest in the Spanx For Men range. Flattening your stomach, firming the chest and even improving your posture, simply layer beneath your suit and you’re good to go.

 

Have a fantastic day!

Bye Dave! Tina Fey flashes Spanx

Tina Fey has never been one to blend into the crowd, has she? The Mean Girls actress certainly isn’t afraid to get people talking, and that’s exactly what she did this week when appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman. Declaring her love for the popular chat show host, the actress quite literally gave him the dress off her back, unzipping her blue dress to commemorate his last ever episode in the hotseat. Revealing a hilarious bodice with ‘Bye Dave’ emblazoned across the front, her Spanx shaping suit was visible for all to see!

Tina Fey

We love it when celebrities are open about wearing Spanx; after all, who doesn’t need a little shaping support from time to time? It’s reassuring to know that even high-profile celebrities like Fey turn to Spanx when they need a little help getting into a dress, and with the wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d round up our favourite shape to ensure you look fabulous in your new summer dresses.

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

If it’s just your tummy that needs a little taming, have a look at the Spanx Higher Power – New & Slimproved. The name speaks for itself, with these strong control panties using amped up tummy panels to flatten your midriff in secrecy.

Is your derriere in need of a boost? We love the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘buttlets’ to slot into your rear to give you a rear that even Kim Kardashian would envy.

Finer than leggings and available in every colour of the rainbow, we’re here to let you in on all of our footless style secrets to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch…

The wallet warriors

At this time of year, most of us are busily saving for a last minute holiday in the sun, so it makes sense to save the pennies while we can. Proving that a fabulous footless style needn’t cost the earth, stocking up on the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights is a must. Leaving you with change leftover from a fiver, these 50 denier lovelies are thick enough to cover your legs, without overheating should a summer heatwave take hold (unlikely, I know!)

The secret saviours

Any of you who regularly read our blog will know we love hosiery with hidden benefits. After all, who doesn’t want as much from their money as possible? With the mercury rising, I have to point you in the direction of the Pretty Polly Coolsense Footless Tights. While you may fool the outside world into thinking these are any old pair of footless tights, they’re actually made from Nilit Breeze yarns. None the wiser? Considerably smoother and lighter than other footless styles, the innovative yarns mean that you’ll always stay at least 1◦c cooler than usual, keeping you feeling lovely refreshed – even after a mad dash for the bus! Or if the thought of tomorrow mornings spin class fills you with dread, iron out your lumps and bumps the easy way with the Spanx In Power Line Super Footless Shaper. Strong control shaping shorts with inbuilt 15 denier footless tights, your body insecurities aren’t going to hang around for much longer!

As seen on Fearne Cotton, these fabulous footless tights are covered in shimmering glitter. Packed full of wow factor and destined for parties, your inner disco diva can choose between silver and gold sparkle depending on your style preference.

Paying homage to the trend for patterns and prints, another of my top picks are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. Coming in at a 40 denier, these decorative leggings are covered in an ornamental paisley print to rack up the style points. Or if you’re forever falling under the charms of lace, opt for the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, new for SS15 and coming with a sumptuous floral lace effect against a tulle base.

Does coloured hosiery makes you go weak at the knees? Stocking up on the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings is a must. Whether you wow in white or thrill in fuchsia pink, these 70 denier leggings are perfect for pairing with summer tunics and brightening your look. If you don’t want your daughter to be green with envy, treat her to the Country Kids Capri Tights, with 10 summery shades and sizes ranging from 3 years all the way up to 11.

Fashion Faux Pas: Kim loves Spanx!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

Love her or loathe her, there’s no denying that Kim Kardashian attracts more column inches than the average celebrity. This week was no different, although this time it wasn’t little North West or an outrageous outfit stealing her limelight. Spotted in New York wearing a figure hugging lace top and centre split skirt as she made her way to sign copies of her new (slightly pretentious) selfie-filled book, Selfish, Kim made no secret of how she maintains her curvy hourglass figure. And the verdict? Spanx! Peeking out of her skirt, Kim was wearing Spanx shaping shorts to smooth away her lumps and bumps. We don’t blame her; after all she is a recent mother, but it was satisfying to know that even Kim, with a bum as famous as the Kardashian star herself, isn’t free of everyday problems we face with our own body. Fashion faux pas aide, here are our favourite shaping shorts so you can have your own Kim-licious derriere!

Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short

Chic Silhouette

For just the right amount of slimming and shaping, try the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short. These offer a high control and smooth panels that flatten your tummy and lift your bum for a 360 degree shaping support! Even better, these shaping shorts are laser cut  on the thigh which means you won’t get any nasty VPL while still being able to wear you flirty minis and cocktail dresses! If you want a little more tummy shaping magic, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day High Waisted Mid Thigh shorts instead!

A little extra bum boost

Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with Kim’s lovely behind, but if you crave the extra booty boost, look no further than the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, with optional “butt-lets” that you can insert into rear pockets to make your bum look fuller! For the post-workout bum look without even hitting the gym, try the Ambra Killer Figure Bum Lifting Shorts as well. And at only £16.00 a pop, these are practically a steal!

Spanx Slimplicity Open Bus Mid Thigh Bodysuit

Spanx Slimplicity Open Bus Mid Thigh Bodysuit

360° Magic

If all-round shaping magic is what you desire, try the Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Mid Thigh Bodysuit! This body suit is designed with an open bust that begins shaping and slimming from just under the bust and doesn’t end until the mid-thigh. And with the signature trusty Spanx design, these are also laser cut for a seamless slimming silhouette. The ShaToBu Get Fit High Waist Mid Thigh Shaper should also be on your radar; with resistance band technology to tone your muscles and burn calories during wear… without even lifting a finger.

Style Picks: Leggings for the mature woman

Trasparenze Dorella Leggings

Trasparenze Dorella Leggings

Leggings will always hold a special place in our hearts; they’re comfortable, warm, and versatile with every weather. But with so many different styles on offer, from neon pink through to the funkiest of patterns, you might wonder if this fashion staple is better suited to younger women? But fret not, ladies, for leggings can be enjoyed by all. If you can look past the busier of prints and patterns, MyTights have an incredible array of leggings suitable for every age, size or style. Need your very own style guru? Here’s our round-up of leggings for the more mature woman…

 

Back to the basics

Every woman needs a pair of black leggings in her wardrobe – they’re practically irreplaceable. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, they can work with virtually any outfit, making them the ultimate must-have. Simply pair them with a long tunic to cover your rear and a comfortable pair of flats and you have a go-to outfit that you can turn to on an everyday basis. For a particularly great pair, Italian brand Trasparenze have given us the Dorella Leggings. 100% opaque, of the highest quality and available in a plethora of colours as well as black, we don’t know how we’d navigate our style without them. Or if you’re on a budget, check out the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights for just £4.99 a pair. Need some shaping magic? Opt for the Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings, with all the hallmarks of the acclaimed shapewear brand but with the appearance of traditional leggings.

Patterns 

Oroblu Sherry Leggings

Oroblu Sherry Leggings

That’s right, ladies – patterns. Patterns are a brilliant way to update your look on a budget. To nail the patterns trend, opt for muted prints and classic designs like lace and net. The Oroblu Sherry Leggings are a fabulous choice, with their 30 denier tulle base and array of elegant florals. With the option between black and navy blue, these leggings are eye-catching, chic, and will work from day to night. What could be better?

Denim

Denim leggings, or ‘jeggings,’ are a great alternative to skinny jeans as they provide a denim-look without adding any bulk on your legs. Not only offering a timeless look, the Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings have taken advantage of double layer shaping to eradicate your body insecurities, all the while appearing like regular skinny jeans. We adore! They might be slightly pricey, but this is the kind of investment you’ll never regret…Check our entire leggings collection before you leave!

Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Being pregnant isn’t always much fun. As well as the aches, the pains and sleepless nights, it also means you may no longer be able to fit into your favourite hosiery.

With MyTights dedicated to sourcing hosiery to suit every size and shape (bumps included), we have a fabulous selection of maternity hosiery for you to choose from. Showing us how it’s done, Radio 1 presenter, Fearne Cotton, and Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria have both been spotted in maternity opaques in the past week. Gracefully covering her baby bump, Fearne was wearing a long plaid frock paired and sensible flats flats, whilst Hilaria was spotted with her husband and daughter wearing a black coat, black leggings, and boots – finished off with a bright scarf for a pop of colour. It’s obvious that these two ladies are blossoming beautifully – not just in their pregnancy but with their style choices to boot.

Spanx. Whether you’ve tried it or not, you’d have to have been under a rock for the last 15 years to have never heard of it. The brainchild of entrepreneur Sara Blakely (the first self-made female billionaire, FYI), the shapewear giants have gone from strength to strength in recent years. On a mission to smooth over our lumps and bumps and enhance the body confidence of women across the globe, they’ve become such an institution that even the most high profile of celebrities swear by them for red carpet events.

Faux Pas Alert! Kim K in See-Through Leggings

Kim Kardashian (see-through)

CRINGE!

When it comes to listing our top hosiery faux pas, see-through leggings always manage to find their way towards the top of the list. Not always known for her excellent fashion choices, this week it was Kim Kardashian who fell foul of the style no-no, wearing a particularly unforgiving pair of transparent leggings during a Paris workout. Sure, the glare of the camera flash undoubtedly made her leggings appear sheerer than they actually were, but you’d think if you were a member of the world-famous Kardashian clan, that this would enter your mind before facing the prying eyes of the press! Whether a PR stunt or not, her choice of outfit left very little to the imagination, and certainly doesn’t rank amongst her finest sartorial choices. To make sure you never commit such a heinous fashion crime, we’ve rounded up our collection of gorgeous leggings for every occasion.

Best for: Everyday wear

Anyone who’s worn leggings will know just how versatile they can be. Whether with dresses, tunics or longline tees, it pays to always have a quality pair to hand, and we’ve got just the thing with the Trasparenze Honeymoon Leggings.  Made in a matte finish and available in three classic colours, they’re also completely opaque, so there’s no chance of ‘doing a Kim.’

Best for: Patterns & Prints

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Especially for the fashionistas, printed leggings are a must-have for the spring/summer seasons. From florals to geometrics, they’re everywhere at the moment, but our favourite pair has to be the Oroblu Bouquet Leggings. We were taken by these as soon as we spotted them arrive a few weeks back, and it’s clear to see why with their elegant floral print and generous stretch.

Best for: High Shine

Hands down one of the biggest trends at the moment, no leggings feature would be complete without high shine. They may not exactly be purse-friendly, but we’re of the opinion that sometimes it’s worth splashing the cash for something extra special, and that’s exactly what you get with the Wolford Estella Leggings. With a gorgeous leather look finish and quilted seam on the knee, wowing your friends is a given!

Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings

Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings

Best for: Extra Benefits

Nowadays, leggings can do more than just look great, and it’s possible for a simple pair of leggings to trim your figure and tone your problem zones! Who’d have thought it? We couldn’t decide on a favourite for this section, so we compromised with a tie between two brilliant styles, the first of which are the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. Brand new to MyTights, these vampy leggings will streamline your tummy, thighs and hips, all the while giving you a rock chick look with their high shine finish. Or for the appearance of classic denim, a pair of the Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings are a must. Appearing like denim jeans but with the stretch of a legging, your figure will appear perfectly contoured 24/7.

Best for: Colour

Completing our fabulous five are the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings. Dark colours are all well and good, but when the sun’s out, we love to experiment with jazzy shades to brighten our look. With ten colours on offer, these 70 denier leggings offer 100% coverage are perfect for updating your spring look. Our favourites are the vibrant shades of Ottanio and Bordo!

Maternity Tights: Fearne Cotton Shows Us How!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

As far as women go, Fearne Cotton is one of our favourites. Announcing earlier this month that she’s leaving her post on Radio 1 after ten years in the hotseat, it’s taken us quite some time to come to terms with the revelation. What are we going to do without our daily dose of the DJ who puts the effortless into cool? However, it doesn’t look like Fearne’s about to drop off our radar any time soon, having been papped almost daily since her big revelation. Of course, we all know the reason behind her departure is a happy one – she’s pregnant with her second child! Good on you, Fearne! As well as continuing to showcase a quirky style, one thing we’ve noticed about her recent outfits is that each and every one of them has featured a pair of tights. While Fearne’s kept tight-lipped about when her due date is, we would imagine she’s treated herself to a few pairs of maternity tights to support her growing bump. As a high-profile celebrity mum to be, we thought this was a great excuse to round up some of our favourite maternity tights on offer at MyTights.com!

Now, it’s not uncommon for women to be slightly dubious about wearing maternity tights during their term, but you needn’t worry. Maternity tights are a completely safe option that boost comfort and provide some much needed support for your bump, particularly in the later stages of your pregnancy. Many of them are made with a panel that sits beneath the belly to reduce the pressure on your lower back. Made from nylon, maternity tights will grow and stretch as your baby does, so there’s no need to keep replacing as your bump grows outwards. If you like the idea of maternity tights, the good news is that MyTights.com have searched high and low across all of the leading brands for the very best styles. Often associated with being frumpy and unflattering, our selection will keep you bang on trend and make your expectant months a stylish affair.

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

1) Mama Spanx Maternity Tights - the ultimate in maternity tights from everyone’s favourite shapewear brand, these 20 denier tights have a high-waisted panel to offer you much-need support before your baby is born. Appearing like regular tights with their slight sheen finish, these maternity tights come with a special panel that sits beneath the tummy, offering support to the lower back and making you feel a little more confident about your growing frame. Smoothing over the bump in a completely safe way, choose between black and nude.

2) Trasparenze 20 Denier Maternity Tights – another 20 denier offering but a little more affordable than the Spanx tights, these maternity sheers are made with a stretchy and generous fabric that will expand with your growing sprog. Made using natural cotton to ensure you don’t overheat, the flat lying waistband will rest comfortably over your bump without showing through tighter clothing styles. Beats a pair of unflattering trousers, right?

3) Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights – great if your expectant months span across the winter, these 70 denier maternity tights offer a similar support but with a thicker denier to keep you feeling lovely and snug. Coming in three colours and made with a cotton/Lycra composition, they have a great amount of stretch to accommodate your bump and make these precious months extra special.

Giving you more time to put your feet up and relax!
