Women's sheer tights and pantyhose subtly cover legs and elevate style. Pulling on a pair of these still lets your skin peek through while giving you a little extra coverage. 

Tights are a kind of cloth garment, most often sheathing the body from the waist to the toe tips with a tight fit, hence the name. They come in absolute opaque, opaque, sheer and fishnet styles or a combination of them, such as the original concept of the American term pantyhose with sheer legs and opaque panty.

Pantyhose, called sheer tights in the United Kingdom and a few other countries, are close-fitting legwear covering the wearer's body from the waist to the toes. Mostly considered to be a garment for women and girls, pantyhose first appeared in stores as a convenient alternative to stockings and/or control panties. Like stockings or knee highs, pantyhose are usually made of nylon, or of other fibers blended with nylon.

Nylon was the first commercially successful synthetic thermoplastic polymer.  DuPont began its research project in 1927. Nylon was first used commercially in a nylon-bristled toothbrush in 1938, followed more famously in women's stockings or "nylons" which were shown at the 1939 New York World's Fair and first sold commercially in 1940.  After nylon's nationwide release in 1940, production was increased. 1300 tons of the fabric were produced during 1940.  During their first year on the market, 64 million pairs of nylon stockings were sold.

The problem with using 100% Nylon for hosiery:

As pure nylon hosiery was sold in a wider market, problems became apparent. Nylon stockings were found to be fragile, in the sense that the thread often tended to unravel lengthwise, creating ‘runs’. People also reported that pure nylon textiles could be uncomfortable due to nylon's lack of absorbency. Moisture stayed inside the fabric near the skin under hot or moist conditions instead of being "wicked" away.  Nylon fabric could also be itchy, and tended to cling and sometimes spark as a result of static electrical charge built up by friction.  

The Solution to the Problem (Blend Nylon with other fibers)

The solution found to problems with pure nylon fabric was to blend nylon with other existing fibers or polymers such as cotton, polyester, and spandex. This led to the development of a wide array of blended fabrics.  The new nylon blends retained the desirable properties of nylon (elasticity, durability, ability to be dyed) and kept clothes prices low and affordable.
