Bare Necessities; Why pantyhose are still necessary today.

By Mary Penco
on November 08, 2018

Women dancing wearing Oroblu nude pantyhose.

A new generation of women, particularly young women, consider pantyhose to be obsolete but nothing could be further from the truth. Pantyhose, like most things in our modern world, have undergone an evolution, making them as relevant to a woman’s life today as they were for our grandmothers. Tights, stockings and pantyhose, are in fact quintessential clothing accessories that can take your outfit from dull to joyous!!

There are many reasons why we should continue to wear pantyhose in the 21st Century. Apart from warmth, support and comfort, the most obvious reason being that pantyhose simply make your legs look better and who doesn’t want better legs?!! Let’s face it very few of us have fabulous, evenly tanned, unblemished legs, pantyhose can help achieve a flawless, even look. The Royals know this, you will never see the the Duchess of Cambridge not wearing pantyhose. Celebrities such as Julia Roberts know this, in fact she has joined ranks with the great Italian hosiery giant, Calzedonia and has declared that she is delighted to have rediscovered ‘femininity’ since returning to wearing tights.

With so many beautiful patterns, styles, weights and sizes there is a pantyhose for literally everyone. It can be difficult navigating such a wide choice and so we have chosen a few tried and tested styles that will take your legs into modern times in comfort and style.

Piu` 8 by  Franzoni are arguably the best ultra sheer tights on the market today. They are incredibly soft and silky and extremely affordable compared to more well known brands. The nude option gives you a bare leg look with just a touch of sheen giving your legs a healthy tanned glow. The black colour option in this style is extremely elegant and perfect for formal wear.

 Different by Oroblu is the epitome of comfort and comes in a range of deniers, we are particularly partial to the 15 and 40 deniers as these weights cover both transeasonal weather and colder weather. What makes this range ‘different’ is the attention that has been paid to every aspect of the tights ensuring that utmost comfort is maintained throughout the duration the tights are worn. The leg is shaped to fit perfectly, the waistband sits higher at the back preventing the tights from ever slipping down, the brief sections contour the buttocks and the toes are invisible so you can wear these with open or closed toe shoes. Apart from the classic nude and black options the niut, a silvery grey is a fabulous colour selection, like black it matches with every other colour. The difference with nuit is that it can give a softer tone when needed.

Oroblu Different 15 and Different 40 ranges are the ultimate in pantyhose comfort.


Divine 10 also by Oroblu live up to their name as they certainly are divine!! Spun with revolutionary nanofiber this is truly a technological tight!! Super smooth and soft you feel like you have stepped into a second skin. Despite the fineness of the yarn these tights are very strong boasting quite a lot of stretch. Thanks to the nanofiber these tights allow your skin to breathe keeping your legs fresh. These luxurious tights usually come at a high price but at Italian Tights we think that luxury should be affordable for all and that is why we have the best prices not just for Oroblu Divine 10 tights but all our tights.

Svelatiisime by Franzoni are not only sexy but also prove to be practical and functional. With a faux suspender belt they give the appearance of a traditional pair of stockings but in fact stay up without the fuss of fasteners and clips. Svelatissime’s practical design give you freedom of movement, from the moment you pull them on that is where they will remain, even going to the toilet has suddenly become hassle free. Recommended by health professionals for their hygienic features coupled with comfort, your sexy pantyhose  have a new name, Svelatissme !!


Conjure the illusion of stockings but without the hassles with Svelatissime.

Pantyhose of course do not have to be one colour, in fact some of the most glorious prints have been transferred onto pantyhose. The ultra sheer pantyhose are perfect for a tattoo effect. We love these because they resemble a tattoo but now you can change your tattoo whenever you feel like it with no pain and minimal expense. Our most favourite are the Azalea Flower Tights by Oroblu, intricate sweet fuschias are seemingly delicately painted onto your legs. Wanting a chic look choose the Rosanne with black vertical motifs placed on the back calves alludes to a time when tights were made with back seams.

So before you disregard hosiery take a closer look at how a pair of pantyhose can transform your legs and persona.
