Do you know what the difference between thigh highs and tights is?


Thigh-high stockings have become a fashion staple, perfect for the fall and winter seasons. Take a look at the styles in Calzedonia’s collection and discover how to create a feminine and sophisticated look!

Perfect for keeping your legs warm, Calzedonia’s thigh-high socks are made from warm, soft, and opaque fabrics like wool or cashmere. Choose from Calzedonia styles in cable stitch, chevron, or ribbed knit to capture an original look! Regardless of the style, to put on your thigh-high stockings, first scrunch them up to the toe and then slide in your foot, then continue to unroll the stocking over your legs. This will prevent stretching or tearing!

The top of the thigh-high stockings is woven in a tighter ribbed stitch: this ensures that it hugs your legs at the top. This will prevent your tights from rolling down or from having to be readjusted. Finding the perfect fit also helps to ensure that they stay up and you remain comfortable all day long. Selecting the right size of your thigh-highs has never been easier with the Calzedonia detailed size guide. Find the perfect size for you!

Want to spice up your Halloween costume this year? Thigh high tights or stockings may be just what you need. Cropped at the top, these thigh high socks come in both traditional and modern styles, offering a stylish alternative to plain hosiery. For example, black fishnet thigh highs are a throwback to the glory days of glamour, evoking the elegant (but seductive) style of old Hollywood and classic pin-up girls. In contrast, whimsical striped thigh high socks let you add some flirty fun to your Halloween costume.

If you've never worn thigh high pantyhose before, you may be wondering if garter belts and clips are required. While you can choose to go with this traditional look, Party City offers plenty of thigh high hosiery that uses sturdy elastic bands to hold your stockings in place. Do you need some thigh high socks with a somewhat less daring look? Besides stockings, you'll find some cute thigh high socks that work well for athletic, fantasy or superhero themed costumes – no garter belts required. We also offer patterned polka dot and striped thigh high socks. These bright and cheeky stockings add a bit of sass to an outfit. (Source: www.partycity.com)

Hold-ups or stay-ups (in the United States also referred to as thigh-high stockings or simply thigh highs) are stockings with an elasticized band at the top, designed to hold the stockings up when worn, without the use of a garter belt or garters (British English: suspenders). Thigh highs are held up by one or more bands sewn to the top that is backed with silicone on its inner surface. This ensures the thigh highs stay in position because of the elastic and the friction of the silicone against the skin. The silicone can become ineffective by contact with body lotions, oils and talcum powder, as they all reduce the friction of the silicone. Thigh highs are designed so that the elastic band exerts just the right pressure on a woman's thigh, avoiding any uncomfortable tightness or unflattering muffin-top effect. Sometimes thigh highs are preferred to pantyhose for hygiene reasons, because they reduce excessive microbial growth around the groin due to humidity and warmth.

Thigh highs may be chosen because of the classic popular "stocking top" line, and there are no suspender bumps to be seen through a skirt or dress. Like stockings and pantyhose, the thickness of thigh-highs is measured in denier. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
