It's time to pick the perfect pair of tights. But where do you begin? Let's start with something called denier.
Have you ever noticed the number beside the name of the tights? This represents the denier. Denier is the amount of transparency a certain pair of tights will have, which is directly related to its thickness.
Denier ranges from 5 to 100. Transparent sheer tights can be found at the lower end of the spectrum, 5 - 50, while anything over 50 are considered opaque tights.
For example, the Satin Touch 20 Tights, which have a 20 denier, will be more transparent than the Mat Opaque 80 Tights, which have a higher denier number.
Still have questions? Cosmopolitan tested all the black tights to show what different deniers look like and the Telegraph wrote a piece on how to know which tights to wear - and the best tights to buy.
These Wolford tights are the sheerest of the sheer. Take it from UK Tights that the cool girls are wearing sheer tights.
