Default Lets talk tights

OK so Regina will come with a full body stocking. However there may be times where I wish to show bare stomach with the type of clothes she is wearing for a shoot for instance. So what are a good pair of tights for a size 8 model? Brand and strength wise...

My girls wear
Kids size 7 Australian sizes.

Fit really well. The grey ones are Fila, and the others were bought from SHEIN.

and here we have another wonderful difference in language and names

Like Thong

So I'm assuming, Tighes, that Tights in Australia are what we call leggings?
So what do you call the nylon under garments?

For Gary

I use generic Supermarket brands for day to day. If you want something special, I believe Chloe is the lady to ask.

Definately lost in translation. We call tights stockings or pantyhose. Tights for us would be leggings and gym tights as well.

I did wonder if the American "Pantyhose" would be the name

For me a Panty Hose is what a Drag Queen is hiding

OK, general info. I cant comment on Brands really.

Denier is the "Thickness" of the tights. Lower deniers are thinner more transparent weaves using lighter strands. Higher, or heavier deniers use thicker stands often blended with cotton or polyesters to give a thicker more opaque material. Deniers over 100 are almost as thick as cotton leggings, though the tights are still made to the same pattern as other tights and look wrong was top layer wear.

Sizes, as with all women's clothes are standardised because women only come in exact and metered sizes themselves Fortunately tights stretch For a Size 8 you could go small/medium but you may want to look at med/large as well as an overly tight fit can cause abrasions on TPE and soft silicone girls.

Colour. Nylon wont stain. The colour is build in during manufacture, it cant leech out. That said any tights with a fibre blend or embroidered pattern may well have dyed cotton in it which could stain. Stockings with cotton lace tops are another example where caution should be exercised.

Hold Up Stockings should be treated with caution especially for TPE girls, as the hold up top often has a silicone band in it to stop them slipping down. Silicone and TPE can react and cause the TPE to deform. Tight elastic tops can also leave indents in TPE.

I'm very picky with the tights I get. But brands I get mostly are Sainsburys TU, John Lewis or M&S purely for their silky soft feel (it's a sensory thing with my Aspies). I don't like the basics/cheap supermarket tights they feel all rough too me.

However you can find some good pairs in TK Maxx if you have one near you. Chloe got a new pair yesterday in the post from an Italian manufacturer. She will show these off when her new shoes arrive.

Pretty Polly are good too.

For size. Stick with medium, you should be fine. To show off the tummy, look for low rise tights.
