Hosiery retailer Tightsplease.co.uk are awaiting stock of a clever pair of tights that give the wearer the illusion of slimmer legs. Pretty Polly's Slimming Effects Tights are printed with subtle shading to give legs a slimmer silhouette and perfectly proportioned pins.
Hosiery trickery isn't something new. During World War 2 nylon was used to make parachutes instead of hosiery and this gave rise to women staining their legs with tea bags, gravy browning or even shoe polish to give the impression of wearing stockings, whilst others enlisted the help of friends to draw vertical lines down the back of their legs to imitate seams. Luckily, today's technical advances in hosiery manufacture and computer- led design have enabled women of the 21st century to simply pull on a pair of perfect pins.
Slimming Effect Tights are available at Tightsplease.co.uk for pre - order, Available in One Size, £12.50 !
