As the year end approaches, everyone is winding down and reflecting on the year just past – not least us. We’ve spent the week pondering our favourite (tights-related, naturally) moments of 2012…
1) Kristen Stewart Shows off her Spanx Shapewear
Accidentally flashed her control underwear while on the Jay Leno show giving an
interview, making mere mortals everywhere breathe a sigh of relief. Celebs are as self conscious as we are, it seems, as lots of other stars came out of the shapewear underwear closet in the year, including X Factor judge Tulisa and Katy Perry, who are both said to favour the shaping underwear over hard exercise and diet. Ladies after our own hearts – and you can get the look with our range of Spanx UK products!
2) Little Mix – Just Generally!
The winners of last year’s X Factor have taken over from Jessie J as the unofficial face of funky tights this year. We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve squealed in delight over some of the hot legwear styles they’ve rocked over the past 12 months. It all started with those personalised
Henry Holland tights (we are still green with envy) and now the girls are our favourite legwear advocates. Keep up the good work, girls!
3) Mary Portas launches her range of Control Tights
Retail guru Mary Portas had a hugely successful launch last year of her range of hosiery and armery in 2011, and in 2012 she followed it up with a collection of shaping control tights. Including 2 fashion designs, not only did she put an end to the choice between fashion and comfort – she loved them so much she wore them every night on Channel 4’s Hotel GB.
