Sheer Tights For WOC!!- Pendeza Tights!!




Hi everyone!
I dont know about any you, but finding a pair of "skin tone" tights is a total nightmare on the high street. Many hosiery brands have yet to grasp that not everybody can wear beige tights. I had long since given up hope that I would ever find tights that would match my skin tone until I stumbled across this brand whilst looking for tights to wear for my upcoming graduation.
They come in 5 tones from tone 10 (on the left) to tone 50 (on the right), I wear a tone 10 and they match my skin tone perfectly. These tights are available in 4 sizes; S, M, L and XL. Even though I am quite slim (UK size 8-10), I am tall at 5'11 so I decided to get the XL just to be sure they would be long enough and they fit beautifully.
The opacity is perfect at 15 denier, just thick enough to blur out any imperfections on the legs. I have bought 2 more pairs since my first pair because I love them so much.
I think they are well priced at £4.99 and are sturdy for 15 denier tights. I highly recommend them to anyone that has similar issues finding sheer tights to match their deeper skin tone.

They are available at pakcosmetics.com in the UK and pendeza-pantyhose.com in the US.
