If you own a lot of tights like me, you may have noticed that they often look different and vary in length, and size. When you remove a pair of tights from their packaging, sometimes they can appear to be too small or too large due to their length and width.
The reason being that tights come in a range of materials, which can alter their appearances. Tights are an elastic product, which can be made of different yarns and yarn combinations. As a result, separate styles can look different when they are simply laid down on a table. But tights have the ability to stretch and mold to your shape and should never be measured or compared by simply looking at them.
You should always consult a company’s size chart before buying a pair of tights. If you followed the size chart correctly, no matter how big or small your tights may appear, you probably have the right size in hand. Go ahead and give them a try.
If you don’t believe me, I enlisted my friend Jennifer to do a size test and try tights of various materials and compositions to see how they fit. No matter their appearance, all these tights are a size medium and should properly fit Jennifer. Let’s find out if that’s true!
