Opaque tights for festive occasions and cold days
Compared to other kinds of tights, Opaque tights are thicker and have a higher denier value than thin, transparent tights. Therefore, they are perfect for colder weather when you still don't want to go out without your beautiful dress or a cute skirt. In addition to their warming function, the opaque tights also help to hide unevenness and small blemishes. They evenly tone the legs and cover up moles and other optical imperfections. Thick tights can also be worn easily under jeans and other trousers when the outside temperature is freezing. But regardless of the temperature, opaque tights are a good choice if you don't want to or can't show a lot of skin. This applies, for example, in the office or on festive occasions where you want to dress too provocatively. Take a look at our opaque tights and find a model that you like.
What makes tights opaque
In principle, the following applies to tights: a low denier value stands for thin and transparent tights, while a high denier value means the tights are rather thick and opaque. So if you are looking for opaque tights, those from 30 or 50 denier up are the right choice. Tights with 50 denier are really opaque, with 30 denier they already have a slightly transparent effect, while still warming your legs nicely. Everything from 60 denier upwards is absolutely opaque and warms your legs really well. The thicker the tights, the better they hide uneven spots on your legs. With tights in nude colors you should make sure that those with a high den value do not look too conservative. It is better to use dark or colored models in this case. You can also wear tights in different denier values under your trousers. If you spend more time in closed rooms where it is not particularly cold, tights with a lower denier value are sufficient. Thicker tights should be worn under your pants in very cold temperatures. Browse through our range of opaque and other tights and find what you are looking for .
The right occasion to wear opaque tights
Your opaque tights primarily serve the function of keeping your legs warm. Thick tights are ideal for this. Under the right pair of pants, thick tights offer additional protection. But opaque tights are also suitable for being worn as your main trousers, even in winter. Thanks to their warming function, you don't have to go without a skirt or dress, even on cold days at low temperatures. However, you should definitely choose opaque, thick models here and keep your hands off transparent tights. If you are generally a person who would rather keep their legs covered, opaque tights are also the right choice. Some offices don’t allow legs to be shown - in this case thick tights are the solution. If you are looking for the perfect party outfit in winter but a dress on its own is too frosty, you can warm yourself with thick tights and still wear your dress. When asked whether you prefer matt or glossy tights, it all depends on your preferences. Matte tights are a bit more popular right now because they look more natural. They make your legs look slimmer and more even. If you want to emphasize your legs in a special way, glossy models are for you. They become a real highlight and put focus on your muscles. To make sure that you really like the tights you are trying on, it is best to look at yourself a few meters away from the mirror. This is a better way to see if you like the tights.

How to care for your opaque tights
Thick tights are more run-resistant and significantly more stable than thinner models, but you should still pay attention to proper care so that your tights last as long as possible. To be completely sure that you are treating the stockings correctly, wash them by hand with a mild detergent and let them air-dry afterwards. When washing in the washing machine, be sure to select a gentle washing programme. Put the tights in a laundry net at a maximum of 30 degrees with a mild detergent and let them air dry after washing.
