1. What denier are opaque tights?
Denier is a unit of measurement used to determine the fiber thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of textiles and fabrics.
Tights with a denier of 40 or greater are considered opaque, whereas those with a denier of 30 are semi opaque, and provide a makeup effect with light coverage. You can purchase extremely opaque tights in the 80 denier range (and sometimes even higher). Most sheer tights are 15-20 denier.
2. How to choose tights denier?
When choosing tights, consider the occasion and desired level of coverage. For formal events, opt for low denier tights (10-20) for invisible coverage. For everyday wear, 20-40 denier tights offer natural looking coverage. Consider also the temperature and weather conditions. In cold weather, thicker deniers are recommended for added warmth.
