Laura’s Choice: Top 10 Sheers!

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights - Berry

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights – Berry

When you think of summer, what springs to mind? A jug of Pimms?  Warm evenings? How about trips to the seaside? At MyTights, the arrival of the summer weather means one thing and one thing only; sheer tights! Typically 20 denier or less, sheer tights are perfect for when you don’t want to expose a bare leg but the temperature is too high to wear thicker opaque hosiery. From nude to black and in a variety of finishes, MyTights.com have an incredible array of sheer tights to get you through the summer months in style. Need a helping hand? In no particular order, here are our top 10 sensational sheers…

1. Beginning with the newest addition to the MyTights team, I simply have to mention the Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights. If you haven’t heard about these yet, that’s set to end soon! Specifically designed for darker skin tones (and the first of its kind), these 10 denier sheers have a beautifully natural finish and the choice of 4 shades, meaning each and every one of our customers can enjoy a bare leg look.

2. On a similar note, no round-up of summer hosiery would be complete without, in my eyes, the ultimate in the world of bare leg look tights. Consistently one of our bestsellers, the Falke Shelina Tights offer the appearance of an 8 denier tight, but with the robustness of a 12 denier. Boasting a slight sheen to create a flawless finish, take your pick from no less than 8 shades, all of which have been created with the help of dermatologists.

3. If a day without a pair of peep toe shoes is too much to bear, the Shelina range has spread its wings to create the Falke Shelina Toeless Tights, completely open at the toe and even coming with a handy toe loop to keep the style in place. Best book that pedicure!

4. Want tights that offer a little more? Opt for the Charnos Run Resist Control Top Tights, with all the elegance of sheers you know and love but with top secret superhero properties. Streamlining over your lumps and bumps with their inbuilt medium control top, these 10 denier gems are also made from run resist yarns to keep snags at bay. Ladders? What ladders!

5. For some everyday high gloss glamour, it has to be the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights. Perennially popular, these sheers have a shiny finish that oozes luxury, and a sandal toe to mean you enjoy peace of mind without having to limit yourself in terms of footwear. Oh, and all that for just £6 a pair – it’s a win, win situation!

6. One of my ‘go-to’ hosiery choices, I’ve always been a huge fan of the Oroblu Sensuel 13 Tights. Not only are they virtually indestructible, these 13 denier tights have a flattering slight sheen and even better, are available in 9 beautiful shades. As somebody who’s tried hundreds if not thousands of tights in my time, believe me when I say stocking up on these is a must.

7. When you feel the need to treat your legs to something a little special, my top pick are the Wolford Individual 10 Tights. Admittedly, they may be more expensive than some of the other options in this round-up, but the quality speaks for itself. Exquisitely soft to the touch and bound to last you not only this summer but summers to come, they come with a flattering matte finish meaning you can wear them 24/7.

8. For something ultra-sheer, why not take a look at the Pretty Polly Naturals 5D Sideria Tights? As the name would suggest, these elegant sheers have a 5 denier (yes, 5!) appearance for a flawless ‘no hosiery look’, all the while benefitting from the durability of a 15 denier thanks to the wonders of Sideria yarns from Japan.

9. Forever feeling the effects of a busy day? You’re not alone, and while you may be under the impression that support tights are frumpy by nature, the Charnos Energising Support Tights are bound to change your opinion. Gorgeous matte sheers with a medium support level, they’ll not only soothe your aching legs but improve the appearance of your skin tone thanks to a luxurious mix of Vitamin E, Sea Kelp and Shea Butter!

10. Last but not least, what’s life without a splash of colour? The Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights combine a classic 15 denier look with the choice of 21 shades. From black, to white, all the way through to funky fuchsia, these affordable sheers will brighten up your wardrobe in seconds. What’s not to love?

Sheers with Superpowers!

In this day and age, it?s perfectly acceptable to want more from everyday life. From mobile phone apps that plan out holidays to kitchen gadgets that can whip up a three course meal before you?ve had time to set the dinner table. The same can be said for tights, given that our hosiery collection needs 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?Anti Cellulite Tights!

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 the 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 Butter.By improving 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!Toeless Tights!

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 band. From 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 mums to be. 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).Ladder Resist Tights!

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, as you?ll never 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 also make sure that small snags will never be anything more.

Super hero sheers, I salute you!

Until next time?
