Why does your size chart not mention height?

Our tights are produced using our super stretchy yarn, so they move and stretch with your body. The way our tights are designed means that the hip and waist measurements are the most important.

How do I find my shade of Nude?

We have seven shades of The Nude which were created by gathering over 1,000 skin tones submitted by women around the world. We’d encourage you to veer towards what you instinctively think suits your skin tone.

I ordered the "Low waistband" from you before but I can’t seem to find it on your site

The “Mid” (formerly “Low”) waistband has been renamed to more accurately reflect where this waistband sits on the body (across the waist), to make it easier for you to decide which one to choose.

Should I choose the High or the Mid waistband?

The High waistband typically comes up just below the chest and hugs your waist.

The Mid waistband sits comfortably at waist height. The mid is also recommended if you have a shorter torso.

The waistband length for the High is 23cm/9 inches and for the Mid it is 13cm/5 inches.

What denier do I go for?

Denier refers to the weight and the thickness of the yarn. Generally, the higher the denier the more opaque the tights.We currently have four styles:

The Nude (18 denier), The Thirty, The Fifty and The Eighty.

The Nude style is designed to be invisible. The Thirty is sheer and stylish. The Fifty is lightweight and opaque with the warmth of a thicker denier, and The Eighty is our most opaque and thickest denier.

Are they matte?

All of our tights have a smooth, matte finish.

Are your tights ladder proof?

Our tights are made from superior quality yarn and if you look after them, they will look after you. They are not ladder proof but they outperform competitors on durability and, we are continuously working to make them stronger.

Can I wear these tights during pregnancy?

You can! These are not officially maternity tights but you should find them very comfortable. The High waistband is particularly suitable for your growing bump and will expand a little with you until of course, it is time to size up.

Are they support tights?

These are not conventional support tights but the High waistband will give light support and smoothing around the tummy.

Do they contain nylon?

Our tights contain different proportions of Polyamide and Elastane depending on the style. They are also treated with dyes, softeners and antibacterial treatment in accordance to OEKO-TEX® standards.

How do I wash/care for my tights?

Ideally, we recommend hand washing. Realistically, machine wash with care (cold, 30 degrees and gentle).

Why does my new order not contain dust bags?

As part of our ongoing packaging development and commitment to improving sustainability, we have rebranded our packaging and this has included removing the dust bag. We are very open to feedback on this, so if you would like them to see them reintroduced do drop us a line and we can feedback this back internally.

What is the difference between The Fifty and The Eighty?

The Fifty is a popular choice for everyday wear as it is opaque and provides warmth. The Eighty is our thickest and warmest style. It has an almost legging-like feel— perfect for the colder months!

Why do you no longer stock The Fifty and The Eighty in a UK 24/ EU 54/ US 22?

After feedback from customers on the lifespan of both The Fifty and The Eighty in the UK 24, we have come to a decision to remove this size from our range. We do hope to be able to reintroduce the UK 24 in the future, once we are 100% confident that the quality matches our Cosmolle standard.

THE TIGHTS COLLECTION

How do I work out my size?

Our socks comes in two sizes:
UK 2-5 (that’s EU 35-38 and US 4-7)
UK 6-9 (that’s EU 39-42 and US 8-11

What are your socks made of?

The yarn we use is made of 85% polyamide and 15% elastane.

What denier are the socks?

The foot of the sock is 20 denier, and the ankle band is 40 denier.
