Tights For Men Questions And Answers
At UK Tights we get many enquires for men about wearing tights
. We approached expert blogger Hosiery For Men to respond to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive and put together this advice and guidance for our male customers.
What kinds of tights are best for men?
It's really up to you! The range of styles these days is better than ever. Just like women, men's tastes differ and individuals will have their own preferences. However, in general men prefer opaque tights. These are thicker, warmer and more robust than sheer or semi-sheer tights. They will also generally last longer and perhaps survive the greater amount of wear than men might expect from them.
also tend to most popular as they provide insulation and warmth. That is one of the main reasons men wear tights; especially men working outdoors or taking part in outdoor activities.
When worn under trousers some opaque tights look just like socks, and that is perhaps an advantage for those men who might be a bit worried that someone could tell they are wearing tights.
How can I get tights that will fit me?
Men will generally need larger sizes that fit taller people. It is essential to pay close attention to the sizing information provided, and check the height information in particular. Key factors for men will be the leg length and a brief that has plenty of depth. You should also look for tights that have a good percentage of Lycra/Elastane - this is a type of yarn that provides stretch and also ensure that the tights fit closely and mould themselves comfortably to your legs.
One-size tights are not usually a good option for men. Plus size ranges are often worth looking at. In general, better quality and more expensive brands provide a better range of sizes and good quality features. I would recommend brands such as Falke and Wolford in particular as many men have provided such good feedback about their fit and quality.
