Why Are Cool Girls Wearing Sheer Tights?

Legs rock! We celebrate the return of tights to the catwalk. Fashion designers and stylists didn’t seem to be into wearing sheer tights, but, since we saw them in trend the last winter, things have changed. Next to cool patterns sheer tights in skin tones are a returning trend one cannot get around each spring summer season.

Nude-sheer-tights-are-back-on-trendApparently-naked and pleasingly natural, yet dressed and flawlessly beautiful. Once a fashionable no-go, they take centre stage, again and again, each year – skin-coloured tights. Wearing sheer tights with sandals is following the catwalk trends.

Next to transparent make-up and shaping lingerie, they have become an essential part of the daily routine in each woman’s life. Nearly invisible they create an amazing complexion while the choice of skin colours is remarkable, starting with a fair cosmetic-tone coming to a dark nearly-black. The variety of shades to match your skin tone all year round allows for refined legs throughout the summer and takes that flawless appearance even beyond.

    I love my Wolford sheer tights. They are so nice to wear with my skirts and under jeans. The wide waist band makes them very comfy.

  • Raj

    Nice article.

    Do not forget that boys also sometimes wear tights. It’s my case, and I don’t hesitate to wear my Wolford sheer tights under my trousers when it’s cold !

    • UK Tights

      We never forget! It’s only the cool models and celebrities we mean when we say “girls”. We know many guys go for sheer tights, too, and yes, Wolford are the best out there!

  • Steve

    Wolford are the best tights by miles. They are the most comfortable, they are expensive but worth every penny. I’d love to know what percentage of male clients buy Wolford over women. My guess would be the men may be a higher percentage in that brand. Great great tights.

    • UK Tights

      We have actually looked it up in the past and it’s about 50%. You see, many men, just like women, don’t care too much for good fitting and prefer a bargain. I guess when you try Wolford for the first time you stop looking for bargains and focus on quality.

    I wear tights daily as fashion they look and feel great on plus my legs look magnificent wearing them. To bad I can’t wear them openly in the proper way like with shorts so am stuck with wearing them under my pants if out. It’s about time that men have more fashion choices not just the drab fashion.

    • UK Tights

      Fashion evolves, Randall, and we are completely sure this would eventually change. Keep wearing what you like; who cares what society has to say about it! 🙂

    My wife recently bought me two pairs of Wolford Luxe 9 tights for our anniversary. The fabric and fit are amazing, they are by far the most comfortable tights I’ve ever worn. The only downside is that I have to wear them under my trousers. It’s all about the quality of the yarn and fit and Wolford really hit the mark with these. The available colours are also spot on.

  • Nikki

    I find the phrase in one of your posts very offensive, namely “Shame society has this idea that men wearing (tights) are all the same as perverts, weirdo’s , TV , TG, etc.”. Is the contributor really calling transgender people “perverts” and “weirdos” and does the contributor understand the difference between TV and TG? I assume a fair proportion of UK Tights customers are TV or TG (they are quite different) and would not expect to see such judgmental and uninformed comments on a blog about sheer tights!

    • UK Tights

      Dear Nikki,
      I’m sure the comment didn’t mean to be offensive and it was only reflexing the criticism he has suffered himself as a male who wears tights. We understand it can feel offensive for some people, so we have removed that particular sentence. As you know, at UK Tights we don’t make any gender distinctions and we treat everyone fairly with the respect every human being deserves.
      Thanks for your comment, Nikki. We invite you to keep reading our posts and taking part in the discussion with your comments. Thanks again.

    I’m a male tights obsessed lover I literally have a draw full pair after pair boxs of 3 boxs of 5 single pairs my favourite colour is the lighter ones I find bamboo matches my legs well I like the smooth knit tights 100% nylon these are cheap and basic I’ve had mostly good positive remarks from women that think it’s a good ideal

    • UK Tights

      Hi Matthew,
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. We invite you to try tights with Nylon and a small percentage of Spandex/Elastane. You may find them more comfortable to wear, as they are more elasticated and, hence, they adapt to your body shape. It’s always good (and fun!) to try different tights styles to compare 🙂
      Thanks again,
      UK Tights team

    It’s always been very hit or very miss in my experience re girls liking their man in tights.

    I’m lucky at the mo as I have a girlfriend who likes wearing tights herself but being with a man who liked wearing them was new to her but boy did she get used to it in a hurry! 🙂

    We even share the same super-detailed fetishistic points such as liking large but semi-transparent reinforced toes rather than the too small and too thick reinforced toes you get on most tights which we think look awful compared to nicely contrasted yet transparent reinforced toes that actually cover (and highlight!) all of your toes for once.

    Wearing tights together certainly put a kick into our love life 🙂

    There’s obviously a big gender-merge going on these days so I’m sure it’ll become more widespread and accepted although it won’t be as hot when it’s more accepted of course 🙂

  • Tim

    Love these comments and support from the UK team about men wearing sheer tights! I’ve worn them as long as can remember and still enjoy slipping into a silky pair of Wolfords. My wife and I both enjoy Wolfords, Falke and now Kunert tights together. We wear the same size so often we trade pairs or if one of us comes across a new style from UK Tights we purchase 2 so we both can try them on..

    • UK Tights

      Thanks, Tim. Many of our customers also share hosiery with their partners. Buying 2 pairs seems like a great idea. This way, you don’t have to argue about who gets to wear them first 😊
      Thanks again.
      Kind regards,
      The UK Tights team

  • alan

    its just an awesome site uk tights..I am totally obsessed with it like I am with tights….its AMAZING reading about tights looking at them and wearing them…am on uk tights page and blog EVERY lost without it..thanks guys xxx

  • Aidan

    I am also a man and I love to wear tights, stockings and hold ups etc. I love from the very sheer to the 100d opaques.
    My legs look really good in them and I also love the way they feel. Like a lot of men I too wear under male clothes
    I have been buying from Uk tights for several years now and have to say the service is first-class along with their products.
    From reading these blogs I notice that most comments are from men.
    It therefore makes good business sense for Uk tights and uk lingerie to also cater for men who like to wear all kinds of what is perceived as female clothing.
    My first purchase was for some 100d trasparenze cortina suspender tights to wear during winter for working outdoors.
    They have lasted extremely well having been washed many times and still no ladders or runs. That makes them extremely good value.
    Keep up the good work ladies.

    • UK Tights

      Thanks for your support and your amazing feedback! It’s true that male customers are always more active in the comments section, but, looking at the stats, it seems like we have an equal amount of male and female readers. We always try to talk about hosiery as a gender-neutral garment and to give honest advice on what styles we believe are the best for each budget. By the way, that first purchase of us is a great choice; one of our best-selling products.
      We hope we can keep writing new content in the near future!
      Thanks for reading us!
      Kind regards,
      UK Tights team

    uk tights yous are amazing and tights are a massive part of my life…even tho ad prefer to be female sadly am not so tights will always be worn regardless… feeling ever with soft gorgeous tights on your legs xxx

  • Johnny

    Hi. Do you think it is okay for a hetrosexual man to wear womens panties and tights/stockings+ suspender belt on a daily basis because I do. I find more comfy to wear than my normal underwear. Doing the job that I do I have to wear them under my jeans so the public do not know. The thicker tights or stockings in winter and the sheer ones with shorts in summer, but at my girlfriend helps with me to get the right match. Also she says they look better on me than they do her.

  • Neil K

    I wear & love Wolfords. I love their caramel color. Wolfords are just amazing tights. I’m a male and I’m in the USA. Love your blog. I wear tights everyday with shorts. Spring till late summer. I am out everywhere in my tights. I never had any issues. Keep up the great blog site.. Stay safe. Kind Regards, Neil Kunkel

  • vee

    I see a lot of men here wearing secretly under trousers, I wear sheer nude tights under 3/4 length shorts when out and about.

    Not had any big issues, the more men who wear openly the more it will be accepted, you just have to be brave enough to try it, the more you do it the easier it is
