the best tights to wear to work this winter

img_4096img_4109

Tights are one of the best things about a winter wardrobe. They keep your legs warm during freezing temps, and also help extend your summer wardrobe a few extra months. Tights definitely scare some women aesthetically, but if worn correctly, they are a game changer.

I have spent years looking for a comfortable pair of tights to wear under skirts and dresses. After trying on endless pairs, I finally found a brand I can’t live without and am so excited to share them with you!! These tights are from a company called Heist. The company is located in the UK, but they ship worldwide!

I did a little research about the company and here is what I found:

  1. Heist’s design begins and ends with women – for every product they produce, they work with hundreds of women to gain a deep understanding of what they want from their underwear.
  2. Heist figured out what would stop tights digging in at the waist–An adaptive waistbandTo design a waistband you can move in, Heist looked to the flexible waistband on yoga leggings for inspiration. Treating the waistband as a separate component to the legs, knitted on a dedicated machine, the Heist waistband is available in two heights: Low, to sit comfortably on the hips; or High, to hug the waist.
  3. You know when your tights itch the backs of the thighs after a few hours? Heist figured out how to solve that problem by using  the highest quality yarnTry wrapping 5,000 spirals of nylon around each inch of elastane (that’s ten times the industry average) to create the softest yarn available – that’s what Heist did. Add to that slowing down their knitting machine to operate at 400 rotations per minute (the industry average is 700 to 1,200), to ensure even coverage and fewer missed stitches.

With the yoga waistband, these tights feel like you are constantly wearing yoga pants. How perfect is that for a long day at the office? They are so comfortable. The first time I wore them, i didn’t want to take them off.  Also, My friend Emily has worn her Heist Tights 30 + times with no rips or tears, so it is safe to say they are a great investment

WHERE CAN YOU FIND HEIST?

The winter range (The Fifty, The Eighty) is available in UK sizes 04-24, while the spring range (The Thirty, The Nude) is available in UK sizes 04-14. Prices start from £19-£24 ($23-$30 U.S.D).

  • What’s more, Heist offer a First Pair Promise to all new customers: if the tights don’t feel perfect, they will happily exchange or refund them within 28 days of delivery.

The packaging of these tights was beautiful, and they came with care instructions and a bag to store them in!!

  1. Please post some close up shots of the tights!! What is the fabric content? It’s good to items like these in normal lighting. Do they have any shine or luster?

    1. Here is what they are made of: ( Luxurious double-covered yarn (88% polyamide, 12% elastane up to size 16; 80% polyamide, 20% elastane for Heist+) gives softness and warmth, whilst being robust enough for everyday wear.) Please visit https://www.heist-studios.com/products/the-fifty?waistband=high&size=US+10-12&color=Jet+Black to see close ups of the tights! I will do my best to take some close up photos soon! The pair I have (the Fifty) have a bit of luster, but not much. They are the best tights i own, and i would highly recommend them. Hopefully this helps! please let me know if you have more questions!

    1. Hey Renee, I posted a photo from Heist Instagram of the Fifty tights at the end of this blog post. As you can see, you cannot really see any luster in the photo. In person, I would say they look the exact same in the photo! sorry it took so long to reply! Please let me know if you get a pair! xoxo

  2. Thanks for that! Now that spring is slowly getting here I’d love to recommend some beautiful sheer pantyhose. Not sure why the trend is bare legs, but you should really consider doing a review of the Cecelia de Raphael Eterno 15. They have slight luster and they are great for polishing off a professional look. For me, this bare leg trend is blah!! People spend good money on clothes and shoes, only to leave not so perfect bare legs exposed. And nice pair of quality hosiery is is the icing on the cake for any dress/skirt/romper!
