I Tried on 23 Pairs of Tights, and This One Brand Is Clearly the Best

Whether you count down the days until you can get back in your 60 deniers or are bracing yourself for a bare-leg winter, we're now approaching tights season. I was tasked with finding the best pair that money can buy, so I tried on 23 different pairs of black opaques—they might all look the same in your underwear drawer, but there can be a huge difference between brands. In my hosiery pile was a heat-tech pair from Marks and Spencer, Spanx's "bum-lifting" 60 deniers and a pair from Heist that has been called the "perfect tights." For my verdict, keep scrolling to see the tights that are worth spending money on this winter.
