Stagewear High Gloss Tights

9 posts in this topic

I've always been intrigued by the very glossy tights worn by chorus girls/ pantomime performers on stage etc., quite often an orangey tan colour.   They appear to be at least 20+ denier.

The gloss effect is almost like glass.

Any one out there with knowledge of these tights, I would love to know more and where to purchase.

Hi

I had to try these too ultra shiny wow I thought, anyhow did some rsearch and  I bought some 'Capezio Ultra Shimmery Footed Tights' (there are two types of dance tights in the main footed is as we no and convertable which can be used as a footless type they have a hole in the foot sole area) After some research I purchased from a local dancewear shop in person! The colour you describe was I think called 'Toast' ultra shiny more like 30 deneier plus wow do they shine, the only thing I would say is they are small I bought large on advice I usually wear medium.

Got to remember photo shooters know the angle of the lighting to get the glossiest effect of the hose for sales.
