LONDON, ENGLAND, January 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Here at MyTights.com we are in love. Completely, utterly, head over heels in love. The object of all our desires? The fabulous new Andrea Bucci LYCRA FUSION fibre Opaque Tights. Just launched, they contain innovative LYCRA Fusion fibres, which uses bi-component technology to create super strong hosiery. Think Superman for your pins, and you'll be halfway to understanding how resilient these opaques really are. Their versatility means they are not a one trick pony, either...
Firstly, they are great for everyday wear. Ladder resist tights are a prerequisite for the office, and these won't let you down. At 80 denier, they are luxuriously thick and so will keep you toasty warm through the colder months - plus they are super soft and come in a range of subtle, sumptuous hues. These opaques will blend into your wardrobe and become your new BFF - or at least your most covetable wardrobe staple.
But these beauties are also hiding a funky fashion secret. The ladder resist properties mean that even if you cut a hole in them with scissors, they won't ladder - making them perfect for customising your very own fashion tights. INVISTA, the brains behind the operation, have provided some tips for getting the perfect customised look - and we have not only tried them but added our own first hand experience, so by the time you get round to wielding the scissors you should be a pro...
1) Firstly, you need the ingredients - a pair of the LYCRA tights and another pair of tights for layering underneath (see our styling tips below for ideas). Then you need really good, sharp scissors - specialist fabric scissors are preferable.
2) The execution is key - we found that it was really important to cut the holes really small and not too close together as they expand to about 4 times their original size. Tweezers are really useful for pinching a tiny piece of the fabric to cut.
3) When it comes to styling them the only limit is your imagination! Experiment with patterns, colours and layers to create hundreds of different looks.
Not only does buying these incredible tights put you top of the fashion class, it also means you can enter our exciting LYCRA FUSION cutting edge competition. Win a LYCRA FUSION Gift box which includes nail polish, hosiery and a Swarovski necklace - and a GBP100 voucher to spend at MyTights.com.
You can enter by taking a photo of your design and posting it to Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest (see the competition page for full details), or by emailing us... so get cutting and put your best foot forward!
The aim of MyTights.com is to have hosiery suitable for every size, shape and occasion. To make sure that you find exactly what you want, products have been examined in detail as well as being tested so that every aspect of each product is clearly described in simple terms.
