Most fans of hosiery lose it for a good pair of glossy sheer tights. Do you wear glossy tights in Summer? Or do you refuse to wear tights when it’s warm out there? We love wearing hosiery no matter the season. If you are thinking of joining us wearing tights this Spring Summer, you should start with the most popular leg style. It’s time to talk about the top ten glossy tights for Summer.
Do you prefer matt or glossy tights for Summer?
Over the years, many women refused to wear sheer hosiery in Summer. Only a small percentage of people decided to go for glossy sheer tights in Summer. Until quite recently, most of you used to buy matte tights in Summer, rather than shiny hosiery.
Things have changed, though. More and more people are wearing glossy tights for Summer (and Autumn, Winter and Spring, indeed). Shiny tights are currently on trend and so, you can spot some celebrities in shiny tights. Something that wasn’t as common in the past. Who else is loving the fact that glossy tights are so popular these days?
Glossy tights or ultra glossy tights for summer?
Do you know what’s the difference between glossy tights and ultra gloss tights, right?
It’s all about the denier. We explained it here, but, to simplify, let’s just say that ultra gloss tights are thinner than regular denier tights. So, think of something up to 10 denier. Very see through and summery, but also easier to ladder.
We always advise you to go for hosiery under 15 denier for summer, but it depends on how you like your tights to be.
If you want them to be almost invisible, definitely go for ultra sheer tights. Some people prefer to go for something in between, such as 12 denier glossy tights, to make sure they don’t ladder so easily. At the end of the day, it’s a matter of personal taste. You will look amazing no matter what!

The platino clean cut are just the shiniest tights I’ve ever worn, they feel and look very very good.
That’s a fantastic choice, Sharon. Wolford Neon 40 Tights have always been one of our best-selling styles. Many other companies have similar super glossy 40 denier tights, but the Neon 40 tights are like no other style out there 🙂
Thanks! Kind regards,

My fave tights have always been and I think always will be Wolford neon 40. They are great in winter and in summer. Very hard wearing, extremely comfortable, and always give a great look and feel on the leg
Wolford Satin Touch is ideal no matter the occasion 😉
Wolford Satin Touch color caramel for me
Glossy tights I love wearing they look great on plus perfect for summer even if I wear the glossy look year round.
