Some Interesting Statistics About Hosiery:
Men also buy tights!
We already knew men were an important part of our sales. Around 45% of our customers are male. Do you remember we even talked about that on The Independent and The Guardian? Furthermore, our male customers usually spend more on hosiery than our female customers.
Men customers talk: Quality hosiery rather than everyday.
Men’s most popular tights style is Golden Lady Feel Nude 15 Seamless Tights. Other popular hosiery styles for men are Cecilia de Rafael Vidrio Sheer Tights, Trasparenze 100 Denier Cortina Suspender Tights and, how not, Wolford Satin Touch 20 Tights.
Most people prefer tights to stockings
Eight out of ten people in Britain go for tights rather than stockings or hold ups. Are you one of them? Even though the number of people wearing stockings has increased in the last years, still tights are the most common option in this country.
Pretty Polly Nylons Tights are the most popular style around Summer. For Winter, UK Tights’s best-selling product is Charnos Opaque 60 Denier Tights.
If you like hosiery as much as we do, we’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy reading more about hosiery statistics. Are we right? Don’t worry, because we have more information for you! Just check for specific data for your county or your favourite brand of hosiery in our Hosiery Statistics page.
Among all the tights and pantyhose, I think the British pantyhose are the best quality and comfortable to wear.
Men in the UK are now wearing opaque tights more and more. Male legs in opaque tights can look just as good as female legs.
Am a avid male wearer that wears as fashion plus the feel, support, the look the feel etc. I know just as much about hosiery as any woman or more plus with over 400 pairs of hosiery anyone with legs can benefit from wearing. I myself spend hours a day reading and looking for articles I haven’t read yet. Like anything else someone wears know all you can about what you put on.
We ship to Canada, too! Here you can take a look at our Golden Lady section https://www.uktights.com/golden-lady
You got me thinking now how to get those Golden Lady tights in Canada!
I tried OMSA seamless, but not the one you say.
Hi Mr. Black,
Men’s sales have been around 40% of our business in the last years and we know other hosiery stores have similar figures. As you say, in the 21st century there’s no room for feeling fear. It’s great to find people who share our views and enthusiasm for hosiery! Thanks for your comment
Thanks for your comment and good feedback. Always happy to help 🙂
Nothing wrong with wearing hosiery! At UK Tights we don’t do gender differentiation. We always encourage our customers to dress the way they like it 🙂
Thanks for your comment!
Hi Robert, we haven’t studied data for the whole world, but we’ll definitely do it after seeing many more are interested in hosiery statistics! Unfortunately the data for each of the US states won’t be as accurate as the counties in the UK, since the number of sales is much higher in the UK, as you can imagine. But we’ll do our best! Thanks for your comment
It’s not surprising that nearly half of sales are to men, yet how many men would admit to wearing tights? Not many as there is a stigma attached to it. Men have legs too and should be allowed to wear tights without fear of ridicule. Most men don’t wear for any other reason than comfort, circulation or warmth, yet women and men (who probably wear) take the mickey or say something under their breath. It’s the 21st century, surely people need more education.
Also I’ve tried men’s tights but their just not as good as ladies. Cmon Britain get it together and let us men wear without fear, we look just as good as you, give us a chance.
Thank you for this site,I am transgender female and I love UK tights
Tights are more appealing than ever before and it’s great that men are wearing them also and it’s becoming more accepted and so it should be they make you feel good and feel sexy ….what’s wrong with that ?
This is Robert Long. I do not see the US. aren’t we allowed to vote?
