The Best Black Tights, According to Thousands of Positive Reviews

As much as they’re hated on, it’s generally agreed upon that tights are one of the most essential accessories to surviving winter — and pretty much the only solution for wearing dresses during subzero temperatures. But how do you find a pair that doesn’t rip, run or uncomfortably dig after just a few wears? Turning to customers reviews is a good start. To help you find a pair that will last all season long, we’ve done the legwork to bring you some of the top-rated options on the Internet. Read on to shop them all.

No Nonsense Opaque Control-Top Tights

A number-one best-seller on Amazon, these No Nonsense tights top the list. They’re made with a sturdy nylon material that, according to one reviewer, can even withstand a dog’s nails, as well as a control top that customers say held them in without feeling constricting.

Wolford Velvet 66 Shaping Tights

While this pair is on the more expensive end, customers on Nordstrom rave that it’s well worth the investment. Opaque and slimming yet overall lightweight, it’s been called an equally comfortable alternative to full-on leggings.

Vero Monte Fleece-Lined Tights

For especially cold days, reviewers on Amazon swear by these fleece-lined tights. They claim the pair is soft, cozy and warm, and doesn’t bunch or sag after multiple hours of wear. Long-legged ladies even said they found a size that fit perfectly, although they recommended ordering a size up.
