How Do These Tights Protect My Skin?
Certain materials used in clothing can feel harsh against the skin, or trigger irritation and allergy. To guarantee comfort and skin safety, these tights are made without any latex and ensure only the soft cotton interior comes into contact with the wearer's skin.

There's nothing worse than overheating under too many layers in summer, or getting cold legs in winter. For versatile wear in both cold and warm conditions, these tights have a cotton interior which helps to evaporate moisture for a cooling effect, as well as a knitted construction which adds insulation.
