Pantyhose provide full coverage from the waist to the toes. Their thickness can vary from 7 denier (ultra sheer) to approximately 30 denier. The higher the denier the more durable and resistant to holes or ladders they are.

The finish on the leg can be shiny (great for a night out) or matte (for everyday wear). The brief can be the same material as the legs (sheer to waist) or reinforced with thicker material for a slimmer, sleeker silouhette (control brief).

With our wide range of pantyhose available, you are sure to find something suitable for any occasion whether to wear everyday to the office or for an extravagant night out, all for at least 33% less than the retail price.

Specialised styles of pantyhose we stock include: extra durable, hipster, toeless, sheer toe, support and many more.

Stockings and stay ups

Both stay ups and stockings are thigh length products. Stay ups cling to the thigh normally using a silicone lining, stockings need to be worn with a suspender belt. Perfect for adding a touch of sexiness to any outfit.

Examples of our styles include: lace top, fishnet, bridal and opaques for colder weather.

Opaque tights and leggings

In colder weather, our opaque tights and leggings will keep you warm and cosy. The thickness (and warmth) is measured in denier ranging from 40 denier (semi-opaque) to 200 denier (full winter weight). Fashion tights can add a pop of colour to your winter wardrobe.

We also have wool tights, cotton tights and styles suitable for school.

We also carry the season's latest patterns in store to jazz up a sleek suit or to be the life of the (costume) party so you will always stay on trend.



Support Products

Support products are essential for people suffering varicose veins, people who spend extended periods standing up and those going on long haul travel.

For over 30 years, Sheer Relief has been Australia's most trusted brand of support hosiery. The range also includes trouser socks, knee hi's, travel socks (for men and women) and padded sockettes. Kayser also has a quality support range including knee hi's.


Fuller figure products

Hosiery is for everyone and we carry many products for those with a fuller figure. Our plus size products can also be referred to as Curvaceous or Voluptuous range. 

Fuller figure pantyhose may have an extra panel in the brief to cater for the fuller figure or an expanding tummy. We carry sheer pantyhose (including Voodoo), support pantyhose, knee hi's and opaques for colder weather.
