You’ve probably seen Sheertex ads on Instagram and wondered if they’re worth the hype, and according to several Strategist staffers they are. Senior writer Liza Corsillo owns two pairs and describes them as “basically indestructible.” Our newsletter editor, Mia Leimkuhler, who has a few pairs, says they pass the pet test, too. “I bought the sheerest pair, and after they passed the Reggie test (he jumped up on me with his doggy claws and the tights didn’t rip or snag), I bought two more pairs,” notes Leimkuhler.
So why doesn’t everyone have these? They’re really fucking expensive. The Classic tights are $99, a lot of money to spend on tights. The brand knows it too, which is why it came out with the Essential line as an easy entry point to its products. They’re made from the same strong material as the Classic version but with a lighter-weight waistband. They are assembled using a fully automated process and not hand-sewn like the Classic sheer tights, plus they’re shipped in minimal packaging, which brings the price down to $59. The brand just turned five, and to celebrate, everything is up to 50 percent off, making these cheaper tights an even more affordable $29 — a much easier number to wrap your head around for tights. Sheertex hasn’t said when the sale will end, but it won’t last forever, and we doubt the sizes will either, so shop now while every size, small to 3XL, is still in stock.
