Tights have left their print in the clothing industry for centuries now and they were first introduced to men since women were used to wearing skirts and dresses all the time. With time, as fashion began to evolve tights began to be worn by women as well, while fewer and fewer men used them. In the present they are mostly worn by women, babies and toddlers.
The fashion industry of today considers tights to be very practical, feminine, fun and stylish to wear. The difference between pantyhose and tights consists in the density of the fibers called deniers. It is considered that anything below 40 deniers are pantyhose and everything above that are tights.
Tights have become very popular because they offer several benefits. They can enhance the legs, make them better sculpted since they are tight around the legs (that is why they are called tights) and help create a very sexy yet classic look.
Fashion designers have created incredible looking outfits which work perfectly with tights. The opaque tights are actually one of the latest fashion trends. Fashion designers all over the world considered that the opaque tights are one of the must haves of the 09/10 fall/winter fashion.
