I love opaque tights and I am old enough to remember them in the 90’s when I used to buy Wolford opaques which were so thick they looked almost like you had rubber legs complete with sexy seam up the back – groove was in the house. I have never been able to find anything as good since. All opaque tights and especially coloured tights are 50 denier which is rubbish as you can see your legs through them.
I have since discovered Tabio, and they have opened me to a world of tights that I could not imagine. Sandal sockettes – shaped like a sandal. I am in tight heaven and have ordered the 110 denier (oh yes that is thick) no good for robbing banks in but great for giving you that solid colour.
