The Right Tights

Control top tights might seem like a necessary evil, but we’ve found a pair that won’t sag, inch, pinch, or roll. (We’re pretty excited about it, too.) Hipstik tights are Made in the USA to fit and feel good—and those of us who wore them became instant fans. The tights are made from a super soft, stretchy microfiber with a magical low-rise lace waistband. A silicone strip lines the lace to keep the tights (comfortably) in place, right where you want them. Like most of us, Founder Laura McGuire wasn’t a fan of control top tights, So she created Hipstik tights to be comfortable for all-day wear, and durable to keep up with women on the move.

    Welcome! I'm Laura McGuire, founder of Hipstik Legwear, and I believe that women should not be squeezed, sucked-in, and uncomfortable in high-waisted, control top hosiery. I talked with a lot of women to find out what they want in legwear—the resounding answer? Style AND comfort!

    @Laura I’m super short and often experience my tights slipping, thus resulting in a not-so-snug fit. Does this happen with HipStik? I also am always concerned about snagging and runs in my tights. How durable is your product?

    Hi @Katie! I'm 5'2" so I totally get what you're saying - it's the worst! By design, Hipstik has a silicone stik strip to keep them from slipping - in fact, wherever you place them they'll stay for the whole day. Our sizing starts at 4'8".

    At 97 denier (and quality-made in the USA) Hipstik tights are very durable and allow for all-season wearing. Thanks for your questions! ;) -Laura

    Hi @Jamie! Hipstik is designed with a stretchy lace top that goes around your body instead of digging into it. This "hip-hug" prevents that dreaded muffin top and rolling other tights give us.

    Hi @nancy! We've taken a revolutionary and realistic approach to sizing: Body Shape paired with height to get your Size A-G. It's important to consider your hip shape, as our product sits on your hips. Our chart, with body shape pictures, is located in the picture gallery on our product page.

    And if you want a visual tutorial, I walk you through how to find your perfect size in our video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPZL7uL_iX4&t=1s

    For colors, there are so many outfit possibilities. We have black, navy, brown and gray in opaque, and in sheer, we have light nude, medium nude and black - all available on our product page.

    Thanks for your great questions!

    Hello, Laura. And, thank you in advance for reading my inquiry and responding back. My wife loves wearing tights...and with Christmas fast approaching, I was thinking that getting her a pair of Hipstiks would be a very cool gift. So, my question is about sizing. How do I figure out what size she needs? She is about 5'6" to 5'7" tall. And, where can I purchase them? Thanks! Gene

    Hi @Mac! I'm impressed! Your wife is going to love your Christmas gift this year! The gift of comfort and style. (P.S. Fits perfectly in a stocking hung on the mantle with care.)

    First of all, you can purchase all Hipstik styles, colors and sizes right here on The Grommet! Easy! Just click on the orange VIEW button our product listing above this conversation.

    So, good question about sizing. Thanks for sharing her height. We've narrowed down to B, D, and E for the size. Think about her body shape. We have pictures of the body shapes to give you a guide on our size chart in our image gallery on the product page. If you can sneak into her closet, please write me back here what number size is in a pair of her favorite pants and I can help you even further to get the perfect size for her.

    Thanks for your great questions and gift-giving spirit!

From what you're saying in the conversations...Hipstiks sound like something a woman would want to wear! And, I think my wife will really love having a pair - especially now that Winter is here! - Mac G.

    Hi @PM! Thanks for your question. Actually the weight charts in the industry don't account for WHERE you carry your weight. We have found our new and different body shape sizing leads to a better fit where it matters most in legwear - your midsection and legs! For Plus Sizes, women have told us that our size G fits 1x-2x perfectly without any squeeze. ;) -Laura

    Hi Laura, years ago I found some leggings to wear under pants with a comfortable compression and have never been able to find more like them. Are these a silky material that jeans or pants will slide over or will the microfiber stick? And what about compression? Do these "hold in" or are they just made for comfort?

  • Laura
    Laura – Special Guest
    11/10/2017 12:31 PM

    Hi @Brenda! These are great questions! I love hearing how customers might wear and use our product.

    First, these are not made to be compression, instead they are designed for comfort. They don't have a control top or have any shapewear characteristics. Our sheer line does have a "shorts" top, as you can notice in the sheer photos, so it is more firm without being squeezing. We added this because sheers are delicate by nature and want to make sure you have more durability at the top.

    As far as wearing under pants, I do know from personal experience, I have to wear a slip between Hipstik tights and a corduroy skirt I have because it does "stick." So corduroy no, but.... I just quickly had fun doing a test in Hipstiks under jeans and they seem to work great! I might just have to do this more often... great idea!

    Hipstik tights and sheers are made of microfiber and Spandex.

On our size chart, the height actually has the most flexibility up or down without sacrificing comfort. Let me make sure you get the right size for you... what is the number size of your favorite, most comfortable pair of pants?
