When you get a bit of a heatwave like we’ve been having of late, it’s very tempting to go out bare legged. Not a good idea ladies! I know we’ve said this before and we’ll repeat it, none of us have flawless legs. We have blemishes, thread veins, marks and nobbly bits that we’d like to disguise so this is how to do it.
First: Try to find a product that has a shade closest to your natural skin tone. There are many products at UK Tights that have many different shades and look very natural. The best ones are a low denier, so they look like a whisper on your legs. We also have a great many products that can be worn if you’re a woman of colour, so don’t be put off from taking a look. Before you try these though here are a few tips to prepare your legs.
Next: Exfoliate. This will get rid of any spots or dead skin cells on your legs. Then make sure your legs are entirely hair-free. If you chose to shave your legs, take your time not to cut yourself and make sure you use a brand new blade. Then apply a good moisturiser paying particular attention to the heels and the toes. Always make sure your pedicure is perfect too. When wearing sheer tights with a sandal toe, you need to make sure the nail polish on your toes isn’t chipped or worn. This can look pretty unsightly. Make sure you use a good quality file on your heels and keep them smooth and snag-free. Again, if you’re wearing sandals, your feet must be smooth and soft.
Now you’re just about ready to try some fantastic legwear. Here are a few we’d recommend you try:

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s sheer tights were everywhere but nowadays very rare to see ,such a shame because the sight of women’s legs in hosiery in the street was such a fantastic sight ,especially for us guys ,but I don’t think they will ever be as popular as they were back then ,men’s and women’s fashion of today seems to be crossing over into each other and you find that men are the ones who seem to be enjoying the freedom of wearing clothes that’s were once thought to be strictly out of bounds ,Which I think is a good thing ,but do think that hosiery in general will go from strength to strength in the future hopefully with sustainable technology and recycling rather than landfill
