Now if you're wondering how those cocktail waitresses at your local bar (and cheerleaders!) keep their legs look lustrous then you've stumbled upon their secret. This page will provide you with fashion tips on how to buy and wear a pair of glossy tights, plus recommendations on the best high shine and gloss hosiery brands.

The chic fashionista Anna Villaruel says A pair of glossy pantyhose can keep your legs from looking washed out - the shine keeps your legs looking supple and blemish-free. Like light-diffusing makeup concealer it can make them look flawless. Like several guy friends have said to me when a girl with glossy pantyhose walked past them: "Oooh, those legs are to lick for. It makes me wanna caress her hot legs!" Yeah he sounds like a pig but I also found out that straight women reacted in a similar but discreet and envious way ;-)

How to Wear Glossy Pantyhose

    Golden apple They're appropriate for evening wear

    They look best in a low-light area because if it's too bright it'll just look completely silly like you're in circus show. You might even get some stares from people who are trying to figure out if you forgot to take them off after a night out partying. Well, that's what I would've reacted if I saw woman with shiny tights in broad daylight ;-) Glossy legs belong to party and evening occasions.

      fashion tip Tip: If you still want to have the extra gloss on your legs for everyday wear try ultra sheer instead. They're shiny and almost as good as the glossy ones, but without the sparkle.

    Golden apple Keep your outfit simple

    If you're wearing a pair of super high-gloss tights try keeping your outfit at a minimum. Too many accessories are only begging for a fight with the pantyhose. It's just too much. You can for example wear a simple beige dress with a pair of simple fashion hoop earrings.

    Golden apple Gloss can make your legs look a little bit thicker

    But the flawless finish compensates with that. If you're worried about highlighting your muscular legs go for something more matte like sheer hosiery

    Golden apple If you want to tease your guy or look very sexy

    Go for hold up glossy stockings.
