Tights, also known as panty hose, are a type of textile garment, usually covering the torso from the waist to just above the toe tips, with a very snug fit. They generally come in sheer, opaque and fishnet varieties or even a mixture, including the old concept of the American word pantyhose with fishnet legs. Some brands, particularly of high quality, can last for years, even decades. Shorts and tights, as well as leggings, are the basic garments that most women use for undergarments, although they can be worn with just about anything, depending on the situation.
One of the most common types of tights and leggings is the sheer tights. These are essentially a long, drawn-out sock with a panty liner on each side. They can be worn with almost anything, but especially with bare legs, they create quite an impression. In fact, some people may think that the term ‘bare legs’ is a misnomer, since it is technically called tights, but no one really wears them this way any more.
Another popular type of tights and leggings is the footless tights, which can be worn almost anywhere, although they are more suited for wearing beneath your skirts and dresses, rather than ‘out to dinner’. They are also quite popular in sports wear and casual clothing. In fact, many jogging and walking shoes have them, as do some joggers. The reason they are so widely used is that they offer the same kind of warmth and protection from cold that your bare feet do, without the need for any other articles of clothing.
Tights can be worn over leggings or under skirts for extra warmth and comfort. They are often used as warmers underneath a tank top or short skirt, as they keep your legs warm when you are exercising or working out. Some people even wear tights alone, for extra warmth and protection when doing housework. The biggest advantage to using tights, however, is their versatility and ease of use. They can be worn virtually anywhere.
If you do wear tights, you are probably aware of the huge range available and the fact that they can be worn with almost any outfit. For example, your leggings may be dressed up or down, or you could choose to keep your leggings plain, showing off your skin or simply wearing them over another garment. Your leggings are likely to be comfortable whatever way you decide to wear them.
For example, if you decide to wear your leggings with a long sleeve sweater or coat, then your tights will help to keep your upper body warm, but there is no need to wear bulky insulation like a tights sweater, for example. If you want to wear tights to a party, then you can tuck your leggings into your jeans or dress pants. Your legs are kept warm but you do not have to worry about catching colds walking around, especially if you choose one of the woolen or cotton blends. Another great thing about tights is that they can be worn to cover your bottom as well as your upper thighs and legs, so you can still look stylish, unlike some other types of opaque or sheer materials.
Some people prefer tights because they are comfortable, because they are stylish, and because they can be worn with almost any outfit. However, there are certain times when tights may not be appropriate, such as when you are pregnant. During pregnancy, it is important to remember that your legs will swell from being so swollen and heavy. Even though you may want to wear a pair of leggings underneath your outfit, you should not do this, for it will make your legs even larger than they already are.
When looking at purchasing tights, keep in mind that they come in many different colors, such as; bright red, dark green, dark blue, grey, and black. They also come in solid colors, stripes, and animal prints. Many people feel that footless tights, especially those that are made of nylon, are more comfortable than leggings, which are made of cotton. However, they can get very hot during the summer time, and this can make them uncomfortable. If you are going to purchase any sort of tights, make sure you purchase ones made of a thicker and more durable material, especially if you are going to wear them frequently.
