The more expensive pantyhose, the higher their quality.

Unfortunately, this statement does not always correspond to the true state of affairs. Sometimes expensive tights for some indicators (elasticity, softness, strength) are inferior to cheaper models.


The more den indicated on the package, the stronger tights.

This is not quite true. The quantity Den (abbreviation of denie – a parameter denoting the actual density of the fiber) indicated on the package is not a guarantee of strength.

Black traces on the legs can only leave black tights.

This is not true. Dispersed-red-3 and dispersed-orange-dyes used in the production of tights and lingerie and staining your feet, can be found in products not only of black, but also of corporal color. And the above substances can be used both for the manufacture of cheap tights, and for the production of expensive products of prestigious firms.

If tights leave a trail of dye on their feet – it’s okay, after a couple of washings this effect will disappear.

No, washing does not save this effect. In addition, “dispersion tights” can cause allergies (they can cause itching, redness of the skin, the appearance of wet bubbles).

The best pantyhose – with the inscription PA (RA) or 3D.

These labels carry completely different information. Pantyhose, as a rule, is made of polyamide and elastane or lycra. PA (PA) means that in front of you – a product of 100% polyamide (most often these pantyhose are characterized by insufficient elasticity and after a while they are strongly stretched). The designation 3D indicates that in pantyhose elastane (or Lycra, if there is an appropriate logo) is three times more than in conventional. Accordingly, the elasticity of such pantyhose is much higher than the product with the designation RA.

Written “with Lycra” – it means, with Lycra.

Unfortunately, it is not always necessary to believe in inscriptions. It should be remembered that domestic producers do not have permission to use “Lycra only by DuPont”, nor special equipment for woven yarn in lycra thread, which means that the inscription “with lycra” on the packaging of such a product is a hundred percent sell.

Tights with Lycra excessively restrict the movement, squeeze, uncomfortable in the sock.

No, if the product is manufactured in accordance with the technology and the size and type of pantyhose is correctly selected. Discomfort can arise, for example, if instead of the usual tights with Lycra you have acquired special medical tights with a retractive effect, irreplaceable in the treatment of varicose veins, but not quite comfortable for everyday wearing.

Lycra pantyhose is very stretched, so it’s best to buy a smaller size.

Any pantyhose (with Lycra or without) is best to buy your normal size. If you purchase a product for a smaller size, this can lead to excessive stretching of tights, which can become a source of discomfort for you and adversely affect the longevity of the purchased item.

Lycra pantyhose is too hot.

If you are too hot in pantyhose – choose models in which the lycra does not combine with wool or cotton. In addition, it should be remembered that pantyhose, on which it is indicated from 30 to 60 den is warmer than products made from thinner threads.

Tights shine – it means, with Lycra.

In fact, the gloss, density and some other properties of pantyhose depends on the type of polyamide yarn used in the manufacture of these products.

Lycra® and elastane are the same.

This is not quite true. Elastane (or spandex) is the common name for all synthetic elastic threads, and Lycra®, manufactured by DuPont, is only one type of such yarn.

At all times pantyhose was the subject of women’s clothing.

Prototype of tights – pants (chausses) were sewn from linen cloth, wool, silk, thin skin and were part of the menswear.In the 16th century, stockings were manually distributed (and since 1589 – associated on the machine), which were decorated with embroidered colored inserts, ribbons, etc. And in the wardrobe of this knight necessarily attended not only warm but also chain armor, which are part of the armor and designed to protect its owner in battle.

A man wearing pantyhose is, to some extent, a travesty.

Absolutely incorrect presentation. Pantyhose and socks are unisex clothes, in addition, there are pantyhose created for men. And, finally, it should be remembered that pantyhose and stockings are primordial men’s clothing (only relatively recently migrated to the wardrobe of the beautiful half of humanity).

A man in pantyhose – most likely gay.

Not necessary. Firstly, as already mentioned, there are male tights, and secondly, even if a man uses items of a female wardrobe – he is most likely not gay, but (according to research) heterosexual. And, thirdly, not all gays dress in women’s clothes, so you should not evaluate the orientation of a man only on his wardrobe.

Epilation is done only by women, men (even if they wear pantyhose) this procedure is to nothing.

First, more and more men (especially those involved in sports and bodybuilding) make hair removal, while not losing their masculinity and not being like the weaker sex. And secondly, even men who prefer conventional socks, appreciate the effect of hair removal – socks better keep on the foot, less irritation of the skin. Therefore, hair removal is still desirable (especially if the color of the hair on the legs is very different from the color of pantyhose worn by a man).

Pantyhose has a strong tightening effect and can cause overheating in the groin, and this is harmful to male health.

This is not quite true. You just need to correctly choose the size and type of tights (some of which have a curative effect, physicians recommend them to use for male patients) – and from the effect of “squeezing” you will be completely rid of. Much more dangerous in this sense are excessively tight jeans, pants and panties, which give a much greater effect of tightening and heating.
