Happy Birthday Silkies!!!
45 years old and still going strong. We couldn't have reached this major milestone without you. Thank you for your continued support!
- Tights were first called Panti-legs. Who would have guessed?
- Allen Gant invented pantyhose in 1953 at the Glen Raven Knitting Mill in North Carolina. He was inspired by his pregnant wife who found garment belts too uncomfortable to hold up her stockings.
- In June of 1978, we started our own textile mill called United States Textiles (UST).
- In 1988, we expanded our hose manufacturing operations and bought the Glen Raven Knitting Mill. Hosiery, it's in our blood!
- At our headquarters, the female employees still wear colored tights. We call them stylish and trendy. The CEO loves to wear red tights. Can anyone imagine?
- We have a long history in the hosiery business and are proud to be a US company. Thanks for being our customer!
There's a Chill in the Air
Fall is here! At Silkies, this is our favorite time of year because it's Tights Season. And boy do we love our Tights. They keep our legs warm, hide imperfections and dress up our outfits all at the same time. And, did you know you can get the "cozy look" with Tights? Simply combine a pair of tights with a T-shirt type dress and a pair of booties for the ultimate dressed up, cozy outfit.
We have a large selection of tights to choose form including patterned, blackout shaping, control top and compression in sizes ranging from misses to plus. So no matter what your Tights needs are, we got your legs covered.
Here are some great styles to choose from:
Silkies Control Top Microfiber Tights - opaque 40 denier knit for full leg coverage and a tummy slimming control top panty.
Silkies Luxe Blackout Shaping Tights - complete leg coverage and built-in shaping panty to slim and trim in all the right places.
Silkies Microfiber Compression Tights (8-15 mmHg) - the perfect tight for those looking for mild compression to provide relief from tired, achy legs and reduce leg swelling.
