The definition of “business attire” has seriously shifted in the past year. For most of us, it’s temporarily switched from blazers and button-downs to sweats and backless sweaters. As things open back up, though, people are starting to rebuild their professional wardrobes — and rebuild their understanding of a work space: home offices, digital meeting sites, coffee shops, co-working buildings… For all of these settings, there’s Sheertex: the world’s most resilient tights.
So what makes them so special? For one, these tights are ridiculously durable. They’re made from science-backed polymers — the same stuff that’s used in climbing and sailing equipment; just thin and extra stretchy. In other words, unlike those tights from the drugstore, they won’t rip, pill or tear after your first wear.
They’re also backed by a 30-day guarantee, and the brand is the only one in the hosiery space to stand by its products like that. Finally, this female-founded and -led organization opened up its own factory in Montreal, Canada, so it could monitor quality standards and commit to ethical manufacturing processes. Talk about disrupting the industry.
Just because the knit is extra strong, however, doesn’t mean it sacrifices style or comfort. You can get these tights in all different colors, patterns, cuts and deniers. (The company also offers sizes up to a 3XL and regularly features plus-size models — an inclusive, refreshing practice you don’t see too often in the underwear world.) Check out a few of Sheertex’s bestsellers below, and until April 30 2022, CNN readers can get 15% off your first pair with code CNN15.
