Sheer tights are an absolute wardrobe essential that give your legs the ultimately elegant look. Show off your legs at their absolute best in sheer black tights, perfectly feminine for daytime office wear or evening wear. If you like the appearance of bare legs in summer but feel you need a little coverage, now is the time to stock up on sheer nude tights. For the party season check out our sparkling selection of patterned fashion tights including sheer back seam and polka dot tights.
Sheer tights are made from the lightest denier fabric. Superfine yarn creates hosiery that is see-through but visible enough to cast an elegant haze of colour over your legs. This enhances the natural beauty of your legs by visibly improving their shape and tone. If you have a tan, sheer tights will show it off beautifully. If you don't but would like one, pick a pair in your ideal shade and hey presto - your legs will appear instantly 'tanned' without risking damage from the sun. If you are conscious of the natural appearance of your legs and would like more coverage, opaque tights in a lower denier such as a 20-30 might suit you better.
When To Choose Sheer?
Sheer nude tights are perfect for summer daytime wear as they are so fine they make your legs feel and appear as if they had barely any covering at all. They go perfectly with summer dresses and summer office wear. Sheer tights in a fine denier are light enough to give just the right amount of coverage to enhance the natural beauty of your legs whilst staying cool. 'Barely there' black sheers are also ideal for summer daytime wear at the office or teamed with a little black dress in the evening. During the party season, show off your pins in patterned sheer hosiery. Sheer tights with a back seam give your legs a timeless, elegant look whilst silky or sheer glitter tights are fit for a disco diva!
How To Choose Sheer Tights?
Sheer tights are made from the finest denier fabric and can ladder easily. To minimise this risk, it is important to buy the correct size. Sizes between manufacturers can vary widely so it's important to check the size guide for the particular brand you are buying. A lighter denier gives the least coverage and keeps your legs cooler but is more likely to ladder. A heavier denier will be less likely to ladder but have a thicker appearance and keep your legs warmer. You need to carefully consider where and how you will be wearing them before buying.
