Tried and tested: Why you should be wearing our opaques

Warm weather is long behind us; it’s time to start investing in good quality opaques to keep those legs toasty and warm throughout the coming months. But how do you know what makes an opaque top notch?

Naturally, we believe that our new Premium Opaque collection is ‘top notch’, but we want to tell you why by giving you a quick look at the key benefits of our new collection.

Denier – usually the first thing people look for when buying tights, we’ve made sure we’ve covered all bases to provide you with a wealth of choice to suit the changing weather, featuring 40, 60, 80, 120, 150 and 200, including a knee-high option.

Finish – in the new collection we’ve provided you with 3 different finishes including a standard opaque, shine and a 150% denier matt opaque that gives you a total ‘black-out’ effect.

Increased handle and loft – also known as that cushioning feeling you get when you hold or step into a pair of our opaques. For this new collection, we’ve intensified this feeling by increasing the filament counts of previous yarns, making them more comfortable than ever before.

Improved fit – we’ve chosen an elastane with a slightly heavier count to improve the fit and stretchability of our opaques.

Gusset – we’ve added cotton gussets to all of our new Premium opaques including flat seams, providing you with a more substantial product for your money.



As before, we’ve listened to our customers and perfected our opaques to bring you a truly premium product that’s built for comfort, durability and great overall fit. We’’re certain you won’t be disappointed.
