When browsing the pantyhose and tights selection on Hoisieree.com, you may notice that almost every pair has a denier number. Denier is a measurement of the thickness of the yarn used in a pair of hosiery. The higher the denier number, they thick and more opaque tights. Here is a guide to the denier measurements and how you can incorporate the different thicknesses into your wardrobe
- 10 Denier: 10 denier is the sheerest type of
hosiery you can get. They are often referred to as “ultra sheer.” 10 denier
hosiery enhances the legs and provides a flawless, invisible finish. They do
snag relatively easily, so it is important that for 10 denier tights you always
invest in quality to avoid runs.
- 15 Denier: 15 denier is still very sheer but
offer slightly more coverage than 10 denier tights. These are perfect for
people who want more coverage of their legs to hide imperfections. Both 10 and
15 denier tights are perfect for a bare leg look.
- 20 Denier: 20 denier is the last of the truly
sheer thicknesses. They offer a lot of coverage but are thick enough to be
nearly impervious to snags if you invest in a quality pair. 20 denier is
perfect for a sheer look if you are active or special occasions like formal
events to look your best.
- 40 Denier: 40 denier is a very popular model.
They are semi-opaque. They slim the legs and provide a lot of coverage.
However, they still show a perfect peek of skin. They are ideal to wear with
daytime casual looks. They are also opaque enough to add a splash of color.
- 60 Denier: 60 denier tights are a daily wardrobe
staple. They are thick enough to wear carefree, but still opaque enough for the
office. 60 denier tights are also very slimming. Pairing a black pair like the Cazzola Gaetano Sogni Fashion Tights in Nero with black shoes will create the illusion
of legs for days.
- 80 Denier: 80 denier are very opaque and often
very thick. These tights are ideal on cooler Fall nights. They are very
slimming and can add a look of sophistication to any outfit. It’s very
important though to never put your 80 denier tights in the dryer because it can
ruin the stretch.
- 100 Denier: Finally, 100 denier, the thickest
and most opaque of all options. 100 denier is very soft and is perfect to help
keep you warm in the wintertime. With a 100 denier tight, you can wear a skirt
or dress in the winter and still keep very warm. They are a great option if you
live in a cooler climate.
