Today on sale you can find a huge variety of women’s tights. It is very easy to be confused at the sight of all this diversity. To make your choice a good one, you should be guided when choosing some tips.
The first thing you should pay attention to when choosing tights is packaging. She can give you enough information to make your choice. She, of course, should be sealed. It should contain information about the manufacturer, density, composition and color. In most cases, tights packed in cardboard are not of the highest quality. With all the information you need to carefully read. For example, it is worth paying attention to the amount of elastane in the tights fibers. This indicator usually varies from 3 to 30%. Products in which the content of elastane does not exceed 10% in everyday wear are not comfortable. It is better to opt for products that contain from 10 to 20% elastane. Tights with a high content of elastane, of the order of 25% and above, can help in the fight against cellulite and varicose veins.
If there is an opportunity to open the package, then you need to try the pantyhose by touch and check the seams. High quality tights have flat seams.
Like any other piece of clothing, tights should be chosen based on your size. For the most part, the size of the pantyhose packs is indicated by letters (S-XL), and by international standards – by numbers from 1 to 6. Before choosing pantyhose, you should be familiar with the table on the packaging, which shows the weight and height.
Useful advice: if you have full legs, then it is better to buy a bit larger size for safety net. And you should never take small-sized tights – they are short-lived and tend to crawl.
Another important parameter is the density of the product. Density has nothing to do with the content of elastane. Density is hidden under the abbreviation “DEN”. In hot season, the best option would be thin tights with a density of about 5-15 DEN. In the autumn and spring periods, tights with a density of 30 to 70 DEX will do. For cold weather – 80 – 250 DEX.
It should be understood that the transparency of the tights does not depend on the density, but on the composition of the product. Dense tights are transparent, and thin on the contrary – opaque.
The choice of colors and patterns is, as they say, a matter of taste. To date, a variety of models is so huge that the choice of style can be the subject of a separate article.
