Silver Legs is a UK budget/drug store brand (made in Italy), and is well known for supplying the hosiery market with plus size/Queen hosiery options (generally 48″- 54″ hips).
We like Silver Legs as there are quite a few FleshTone color options available in their range, including Beaver Brown, American Tan, Brown Velvet, Chocolate and Sweet Pepper. If these colors don’t match your nude exactly (the brand does not appear to be made with women of color in mind, as it still refers to beige as ‘natural’), they will definitely be complementary, and they are a great budget option for FleshTone Queens who often have to spend big dollars on hosiery to get a color match.
The Glass Look Ultra Sheer tights are a great everyday option in summer, and there are heavier tights available for the winter (though the colors are more limited).
The Glass Look Ultra Sheer tights are 100% nylon, so there is no lycra to give the tights stretch. They are 15 denier and are quite sheer, but they do not feel flimsy. The Glass Look Tights come in two sizes (medium and XL), and both have reinforced toes and a boxer brief.
These tights are not the softest, and are going to ladder and snag if you are not extra careful. If you can get these cheaply, and are interested in what are essentially disposable tights for a special occasion, then these are for you. If you wear tights more regularly, then you may want to consider a better quality brand, and tights with some Lycra (so there is more give and bounce back – attributes that are both lacking here). Prices start from $2USD.
