What are opaque tights?
Opaque tights are generally those labelled 50 denier or higher. The higher the denier, the thicker the tights and the more solid the coverage. They’re especially handy in the colder months as the extra thickness (compared to sheer or semi-sheer tights) provides added warmth and comfort. Depending on your style, any denier in the opaque scale is suitable for autumn and winter.
If you like thick tights, opt for a higher denier such as 100 denier tights or even 200 denier tights. However, if you want your opaque pantyhose to have a little sheerness or gloss, a slightly lower denier will be better. For more information on tights and deniers please see our Tights Glossary Page.
Black opaque tights – a wardrobe essential
While coloured opaque tights are a fun fashion accessory, black opaque tights go with practically anything. For the best black opaque tights for school or work, we recommend the Charnos Opaque tights range which comes in various deniers, from 30 to 200 denier, and various styles to suit your fashion needs. We also recommend our Wolford tights for reliable, luxury opaque tights that are made to last.
Opaque nude tights
While both black and skin tones are consistently popular options in lighter deniers, opaque nude tights lose their ‘natural’ look when seen up close, especially when it comes to 100 denier tights and above. They are however popular with dancers who want perfect-looking legs on stage.
