Tights are leg coverings that go all the way from the waist to the feet, worn as tightly as possible to the body. Originally, they were worn mostly by men because they were created in a time when people rode horseback and having their tights right against their legs meant the clothing wouldn’t get in the way. In modern times, they are worn primarily by women and girls, and also toddlers and infants of either sex.
Generally, the difference between pantyhose and tights is simply the thickness of the yarn used to knit the item. Anything smaller than 40-denier are pantyhose and anything larger are known as tights. They can come in many varieties, including control top, seamless, support and more. But the construction is usually nylon, cotton or Lycra.
Styles of Tights
We carry two popular types of tights at Freshpair. One is the Spanx Tight-End Footless Tights, which offer body shaping support to slim your tummy, thighs and rear. These leave your feet free to flaunt open-toed shoes and are made in fashionable, soft yarns with a matte finish. The comfortable cotton gusset on these makes them great for wear without underwear with no panty lines. Plus, the best thing about Spanx tights is that they are made for women by women. We carry a wide variety of designers and styles, including:
- DKNY Opaque and Control Top Tights
- Falke Semi-Opaque and Transparent Tights
- Falke Shimmer Tights
- Donna Karan Sheer and Matte Control Top Tights
Another popular type that we carry at Freshpair are the Spanx Two-Timin’ Tights with Tummy Control, which are a revolutionary design because they are reversible. The black reverses to either brown, grey, or navy so women who buy these tights have two different options every time they put them on. With moderate tummy control and shaping, this pair features Coolmax technology so they keep you cool and dry from the beginning of the day right up until the end.

Most women wear tights at some point in their lives. They are the ideal thing to layer under skirts in the cooler months of the year. They are also great to wear around the house, as loungewear.
