    I have been madly keen on tights/ pantyhose since I was a young kid.I love natural/ nude and multicolured ones but my all time favourites are black opaque in 40 or 60 denier.I didn’t get to wear them until my early twenties.It was the holy grail of hosiery.I used to envy all the girls of my age who wore them.I didn’t understand denier then and didn’t know which black tights to purchase in stores.My first ever hosiery purchase was in my local branch of Woolworths.I mistakenly bought a pair of thin fifteen denier ones.I was disaapointed at the results.

    I  eventually gained more knowledge through plucking up courage to ask the Sales Assistants about the thickest black tights avaiable.Once I did that I was in seventh heaven when I eventually had the rigbt ones.I find them to be warm and immensly girly and gives me the office girl look that I have desired for so long.Apart from tbe comfort aspect a decent pair can be more  durable than a fifteen denier pair in natural.I  have a pair of black opaques on today underneath my checkered  belted skirt and I can tell you that Roberta is feeling very warm and girly.

      Hi, I love any kind of stockings. They’re not as practical as tights, which I also like and wear. I have black and tan/nude, most are opaque but I ike my 40 den black tights from Savers. They do keep me warm and snug. I have on my 10 den black mat hold up stockings from Supperdrug at the moment, first time on and they feel good, so I’m happy with them. I’m good with budgets but I try to keep costs down.

      Check out MeMoi sweater tights on amazon.  Colors and patterns are to die for, and the larger sizes fit taller folks great!  I wore a pair of black sweater tights with red & grey argyle pattern in drab under running shorts for a 5k in the fall once.  Everyone loved them!  Super comfy.

      Black tights are a go-to for me pretty much all winter under my pants, especially on the really cold days!

      I like the feel of pantyhose, too,  but Im hooked on garters (pardon the pun), so for me it’s thigh highs.  And I prefer opaque  – the legs are shapely, but if Im wearing sheers, I need to spend time with full coverage concealer for the collection of scars and discolourations thanks to years of bicycling.  The problem is, it’s hard to find good opaque thigh highs in non silicone lace tops.

      For regular tights, look for polyamide. It’s soft durable and stretchy. I prefer it over nylon.

      But another material I think will change your mind about everything you thought you knew is “ice silk”. You’ll find it on eBay or AliExpress. You’ll find it on Amazon but it will be more expensive.

      Tights are wonderful on a cold day and love wearing them with a sweater dress or oversized blouses as casual wear.

      Tights are a mainstay stable in my wardrobe.  I have both black and beige/nude coloured ones.

      I simply love tights, they are more resistant to runs than pantyhose, and hides my hairy legs.

      I usually buy them from Walmart/Target, and they must be at least 70 den.  The ones from Target are 100 den, so it is nice and opaque.

      I find wearing 2 pairs of tights does a decent job of keeping the silicone hip/butt pads in place.

      Oh yeah! I am particularly fond of the black merino tights I have, and I’m after some more, maybe brown and raspberry???

      I also like my merino hold ups…

      You “northerners” are just going into winter, down here, we are coming out of it.

      So whenever its cold enough, I wear heavy duty tights 24/7. (I have arthritic knees, so keeping them warm is a must).

      We dont go below freezing here in Victoria, (well up in the mountains excepted). But when we dont get much above 10-12’c on a cold day and I have lovely warm tights on under my jeans, it makes me wonder why both genders dont wear tights on cold days. EG My beloved stopped wearing panty hose when she retired years ago and complains about having cold legs….

      It’s also very “femme” when “going to the ladies”. As it is a must to pull down your tights and panties and sit…..Standing is possible, but very very awkward

      Hi Roberta

      I do love a pair of tights, but I can’t get enough of sheer gloss hold ups.  I am wearing a black pair now with my new heels. I do find tights more practical and you can wear a short skirt without flashing your stocking tops.

      Hi, now much cooler weather gives me (a closet dresser) greater opportunity to wear pairs when out and about under my jeans so allowing me to dress longer during the day than just at night. Opaques feel so lovely
