Denier of Hosiery


Now, picking out pantyhose/tights can be incredibly overwhelming with so many options out there. First the decision is what denier of pantyhose to choose? Now, denier is how pantyhose/tights are classified as it is the weight of the yarn. It does not mean the pantyhose/tights are thicker. There are different ways in which pantyhose can be woven together depending on what the desired effect is so the denier just gives you the weight of the yarn used to make that specific pair of hosiery. In theory a 5 denier pair of pantyhose are going to be more sheer and delicate compared to a pair of 20 denier! The ranges of denier can be from 5 at the low end all the way up to 500 at the high end. Picking the right denier is important since you will find out what works best for you.
