The last time I wore tights, I (devastatingly) ripped them as I took off my boots at the end of the day. Normally, I would just toss them, but it stung more than usual considering they were Wolford. After this incident, I swore off expensive hosiery for good, which is why I initially scoffed at Sheertex — except today, you can score the brand’s Instagram-famous tights for a much more reasonable $39, just over 40 percent off.
Despite its hefty undiscounted cost, the product is honestly kind of genius. According to Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo, Sheertex created “basically indestructible” tights that won’t snag yet don’t feel suffocating. Newsletter editor Mia Leimkuhler owns a few pairs too and says even the sheerest holds up to the durability claim. “After they passed the Reggie test (he jumped up on me with his doggy claws, and the tights didn’t rip), I bought two more pairs,” Leimkuhler says. (My sister-in-law and sister have had similar results with their 50-pound dogs, which can tear through just about anything with one paw swipe.)
There are more deals on other tights to snag — and free shipping to be had — but we think the promotion on the classic sheers is especially fantastic given that these are the most versatile of the bunch (and the cheapest). The tights go up to a size 3X, and if you’re confident you’ll love them, you can buy a three-pack for even better savings. We expect them to go quickly, though, so don’t hesitate.
