When it comes to buying hosiery, we know that the temptation can be to buy large packs of cheaply priced tights - you know that you’ll only be able to wear each pair only once, but it seems like you’re saving money anyway because of the lower price tag.
But did you know that buying just one pair of expensive tights can last you much longer and therefore save you money in the long-run?
The detail and extra care that goes into designing and crafting a pair of more expensive tights such as those that we stock here at Luxury-Legs ensure that one pair of tights will often last longer, fit the leg better, and will be much more comfortable.
So what little extras are you getting from your expensive tights?
Ever found that after a couple of wears your cheaper tights feel saggy? More expensive tights will be made with a cotton gusset which is not only more hygienic, but will prevent that stretched and saggy feeling.
Many cheaper tights will include a rounded seam at the toe which can press and rub, but more expensive hosiery is often made with a flat seam meaning that your feet will feel more relaxed after a long day.
Engineered to offer a more comfortable fit, stretch waistbands are much less restrictive compared to the bands on cheaper tights that don’t have much give in them.
Cheaper tights are made with a standard tube shape to ensure quick manufacturing, however more expensive tights will be cut and shaped to the leg, meaning that they will shape your legs perfectly.
With some cheaper tights, you may find that the tights stop being sheer halfway up the thigh making them difficult to wear with short skirts or dresses. Expensive tights are sheer right up to the waist meaning you don’t need to worry about the length of your garment.
Much more care goes into the manufacturing process of expensive tights, meaning that they’ll have been spot checked, measured and ironed before being packaged so there won’t be any defects or snags in the tights.
Brands such as those we stock at Luxury-Legs are from the premium tights market, meaning that they’re able to offer a much larger selection of colour options. The All-Nude range of tights by Fogal are one of many fantastic collections of tights that offer a diverse selection of skin tones to choose from.
