If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that I rarely wear anything that shows my knees. I have no idea why, but I like having my legs covered, so you can probably imagine that my collection of tights is pretty extensive.
In retrospect, I think it started in high school when I had to wear a kilt with my uniform. We were allowed to pair it with either knee high socks or tights and I would choose tights every time. Presently, I get teased (lovingly) for my “modest fashion” and have embraced the notion fully because I honestly can’t remember the last time that my knees graced the Internet. Actually, that’s not entirely true. There was one photo from my trip to Greece last year wearing only a beach cover-up. That’s it for 2017 though.
If you are like me and are always rocking some form of tights, you will probably know that they aren’t always the most comfortable. In fact, my mother and I have had several extensive conversations about which specific ones are the best. Although I’ve discovered a few great pairs over the years, I had never found anything that I was totally happy with until recently.
With my tights obsession in mind, it seemed like a perfect partnership when SILKS® Hosiery reached out to have me try their new tights with LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology. These tights fit better by moving with your body to provide more freedom. The LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology ensures comfort in the waistband by creating an invisible waistline that doesn’t dig in or roll down throughout the day.
Both of these points address the two things that used to bother me when wearing other brands of tights. The first was that they would roll down at the top leaving me uncomfortable and with a “muffin top”. The second was that they wouldn’t stretch enough in the directions needed causing tightness when moving and/or falling down throughout the day. It sounded like the new SILKS® Hosiery with LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology was supposed to fix both of those issues, so here’s what happened when I put them to the test.
I received the SILKS® Classics (Sheer Leg) pantyhose in nude and black, as well as their SILKS® Opaque Black Tights. Although all three are amazing, I have a weakness for the Opaque ones because they’re warm and I have a thing for tights with little transparency (I mean, I have that “no showing my knees” rule and all).
The LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology allows these to stretch equally in every direction unlike tights I had tried in the past. You know when your tights twist and then there’s a weird pulling sensation when you move a certain way? These never feel like that. This also means that the opacity of colour is even throughout, which is awesome.
To top it off, the no-roll comfort waistband is by far the best waistband I’ve ever tried. I didn’t really see how the band would not cut in at the belly, but it doesn’t! It stays in place without falling down, but somehow doesn’t feel tight. This is some serious Harry Potter magic my friends! Hands down the best tights I’ve ever worn.
If you are into wearing tights and/or looking for a way to keep your legs warm this winter, I highly recommend trying the new SILKS® Hosiery with LYCRA® FREEF!T® technology.
