Here at Tightly Knit, we believe that hosiery is one of the most important parts of your outfit. It serves a double purpose – practical foundation garment, and chic fashion accessory. Whether you want to give your legs a subtle glow or make a striking style statement, all it takes is finding the right pair of stockings or pantyhose.
Because your hosiery is such a wardrobe essential, choosing quality products can make a really big difference. That’s why we source all of ours from brands in Europe, where there’s a rich history of hosiery-making. Colorful, patterned pantyhose was first seen there as far back as the 1300s!
Along with that centuries-long fascination with legwear comes an expert knowledge of how to make it – not to mention an abundance of specialized machinery and equipment that’s hard to come by anywhere else.
Gabriella, for example, has one of the most technologically-advanced sets of hosiery knitting machines in all of Poland. And German company Glamory produces its collection in neighbouring Italy, using only fine Italian yarns. This is hosiery that fits well, feels good, and is made to last.
Whether you’re headed to the office, to a party, or out for a casual brunch, there’s always room in your outfit for hosiery. Our range has you covered for every occasion, including both basic styles and fashion pieces.
We’ve got beautiful lace-topped stockings and hold-ups for the boudoir. Skin-tone pantyhose to add polish and professionalism to a skirt suit. Patterns and sparkles to turn a simple black dress into a showstopper when it’s party time. And much more!
Our range even includes chic, 4- and 6-strap garter belts for those who need something to hold their stockings up, and we’re one of the few North American retailers offering men’s hosiery too. We’re constantly scouring Europe for new brands and the latest trends, so there’s always something new for you to fall in love with. Because hosiery isn’t just functional – it’s fashion too!
