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

The British winter is in full swing, and whether you opt for the 20, 60 or even 80 deniers, we're fully in 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.
