Tipping On The Tight Rope | 8 Must Have Plus Size Tights

Tights are an affordable way to update a look.  They’re a great way to bring some of your summer and even spring looks into fall or winter comfortably.  Who doesn’t want to wear their favorite dress or shorts into the next season?  That same dress you rock all summer can now be worn in the fall by simply adding tights to the look.  Tights are one of my best cold weather friends.  Depending on the pair you’re wearing they can be not only functionally but sexy or fun.

I have collected a few of my favorite brands so you can see what tight options are out there.  I have selected tights from Lane Bryant, ASOS, Eloquii, Macy’s and Target.  Tights come in lots of colors and styles so there is something for everyone.

What does denier mean?

One of the key features of tights is the denier. By definition, denier is a unit of weight used for determining the fineness or thickness of the tights. The lower the denier value, the more fragile and sheer the tights are.

Tights less than 40 denier are generally referred to as pantyhose or stockings. The higher the denier number, the thicker the tights. Opaque tights are commonly available in 50 denier, 60 denier, and 70 denier thicknesses.

Here are some opaque tights I’m here for.

    Target tights are a fashion fave and I love, love, love the fit and the price. I’ve got so many of them and love them all. Macy’s and Lane Bryant are also faves. I definitely have to check out Eloquil’s tights. Have you tried the tights from H&M? I try to stock up on them when they’re on sale. ‪#BLMGirl
