Threads Sheer Tights Review 2021, Recently, I learned about the Sheer Tights of the Threads brand through hosieryformen’s blog, but unfortunately, I have not searched for it on Amazon at the moment, so I cannot buy the Tights of this brand, but I will try to buy it on the official website. So the review below is from hosieryformen’s blog, and you can find the original link at the bottom.
Threads Sheer Tights Review
You can read our recent review of the Threads Opaque Tights
You can also read Part One and Part Two of our recent conversation with Xenia Chen, the founder of Threads. Part Two covers the plans of Threads to launch a new style of tights for men. You can now join the waitlist for Threads for Men and be the first to know when they are launched.
We now focus on the Threads Sheer Tights.
This is how Threads describe their Sheer Tights:
“Our 20 denier tights. A wardrobe staple. What’s more classic than a pair of black sheer tights? Whether it’s with your favorite sweater dress, dress suit for work, or go-to Saturday night outfit, our Sheer tights in black are extremely versatile and go well with outfits from day tonight. Made in Italy.”
The Threads Sheer Tights are simply packaged. The tights are folded around a plain white card and then enclosed in a cellophane envelope. It is closed with a Threads sticker that identifies the size.
Materials & features
The Threads Sheer Tights are 20 Denier and made in Italy, which is a sign of the brand’s aspiration to provide quality hosiery. The yarn is 81% Polyamide and 19% Elastane.
Threads describe the yarn used as ‘microfiber double-covered yarn’, which has been designed for enhanced comfort, and is also less likely to produce static and stick to one’s clothes.
The sheer tights felt really soft as I took them out of the packaging. A good sign was the generous leg length, which Threads describe as “enhanced”, to avoid the “double crotch” effect of tights that are too small.
These tights are not sheer to the waist. There is a brief made out of much denser and more opaque yarn that is designed to hug you and provide a lift to the bottom.
The brief measures 28cm from the top of the waistband to the crotch.
The rear of the brief has two panels that are designed to fit the buttocks and sculpt and lift them.
Seams are flat. There is a gusset for improved comfort and fit.
The waistband is just under 5cm wide and very stretchy.
The feet are boarded (shaped) and toes are reinforced.
Sizing, fit & wearing experience
The Threads Sheer Tights are available in four sizes:
I wore a Size D.
When putting them on you need to ensure that they are the right way round so that the two panels in the rear of the brief are aligned over the buttocks. The legs go on nice and easy, but you will find that the brief has quite a lot of elasticity. It stretches really well and once in place will really hug you in that area. It’s very much a control brief, which may not be to everyone’s taste. I found it provided firm but not uncomfortable support. In fact, after wearing it for some time you don’t notice the compression.
What the brief does do very well is keep the tights in place all day without the need for pulling up and adjusting. It stretches easily above the waist, hips, and navel.
The fit on the leg was excellent with a consistent 20 Denier coverage. There is a light sheen rather than any over-noticeable shine.
I loved the smooth, sensual feel on the leg. Under trousers the glide was excellent.
The Threads Sheer Tights are available in five colors:
I wore them in the Black shade.
Price & availability
The Threads Sheer Tights are priced at $14.00 (USD) and $18.00 (CAD).
There is free shipping on orders over $29 USD / $39 CAD.
I really enjoyed trying out the Threads Sheer Tights. What stands out more than anything else is how comfortable they feel when worn; this is a common thread in all the feedback from Threads male customers.
It’s always good to have tights with a really deep brief, being a feature that suits the shape of many guys very well. It will be interesting to see what modifications Threads might make for the forthcoming Threads for Men tights. Will there be a pouch or front panel feature to support the male anatomy further? We will have to wait and see. You will definitely read about the new Threads for Men here as soon as they are released.
The Threads Sheer Tights are very good value for just $14.00 USD. The range of five nude skin tones is a further positive.
