If you’ve ever tried to wear a dress in the dead of winter, you know the importance of a good pair of tights. The wrong ones can easily tear or constantly slide down throughout the day (so annoying!). On top of that, they often come in packaging, making it nearly impossible to know if you’re about to buy a dud. Well apparently, there’s a pair that can solve all of your tights-wearing problems.
After doing some researched, we’ve found that Amazon reviewers are obsessed with the totally affordable No Nonsense’s Opaque Control-Top Tights. Hundreds of women have given them 4 out of 5 stars and praised the stockings’ long lasting durability.
“I have tried all kinds of opaque tights. In terms of quality… theses are so amazing. I’ve worn one pair of stockings since April, it is now August, not a ream or a fear. I haven’t even opened the other one yet because these are still going perfect. I look super sexy in these. I love them and would give them 10 stars if I could,” one woman wrote.
Another said these were a game changer when she was looking for a chafing solution. “Let me start by saying I have very thick thighs, it’s a family trait. I’ve ALWAYS had trouble finding tights that don’t tear when I try to pull them up, or don’t cut off my circulation. I wore these today under a dress to avoid thigh chafing, they were incredibly comfortable! I am definitely buying more colors now.”
Even our staffer here at Good Housekeeping.com are on board. We’ve personally tried (and loved) the Super Opaque style because we’ve yet to come across any random sheer spots or runs, and the high-waisted control-top is snug enough to give you some extra shape without feeling uncomfortable (so you won’t get that weird lumpy look). Plus, for less than $7 a pair, you can stock up in every color for the winter.
If you’re not convinced yet, you should know that No Nonsense is a favorite of the Good Housekeeping Institute, as well. Lexie Sachs, a senior textiles analyst in the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles, Paper & Plastics Lab, says in her most recent tights test, this pair was the least expensive, but performed just as well as the most expensive pair (which was $45!)
“They stood out for being able to retain their shape even after being stretched out and being resistant to snags and runs. Our testers also found them easy to get on,” she explained.
Just like that, the woes of finding the right pair of tights are gone.
