Tights are typically different from other pantyhose in weight and level of opacity. Although the English call all pantyhose tights, in the US we think of them as being a heavier weight, opaque and often brightly colored or patterned. They usually have a knit-in crotch and durable seamed toes. Some have a control top, which smooths the silhouette. They're a nice alternative to pantyhose and stockings in colder weather although many women wear them year round.
Tights have seen a surge of popularity in the hosiery market. Women wear them with short skirts and dresses, maxi skirts, tunic tops, even with shorts. They're a great way to liven up an outfit and make your own fashion statement. Some brands have an amazing range of color options, from fuchsia to kelly green to orchid and many more. You'll also find fun patterns, like lacy vines and flowers or sheer tights with opaque polka dots. In fact, more and more brands are offering tights with some sheerness to them. It's easy to figure out how sheer or opaque hosiery is by a measurement called denier, which measures the thickness of fibers. The higher the denier, the more opaque the tights will be.
