Introducing Cutting Edge
The World’s First at Home Customizable Hosiery
It’s time to get creative with the latest hosiery with LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre. Hosiery with LYCRA®FUSION™ fibre offers you the freedom to get creative as the technology allows you to snip, cut and customise your tights, providing you with the opportunity to develop bespoke designs that suit your individual style – with no need to worry about snagging or laddering.
The Technology: Tights that run are a thing of the past
The LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre innovation is based on bi-component technology that allows the outer layer of the fibres to fuse to each other during the tights’ thermofixation process. The result is hosiery with increased durability and performance - when holes are made the knitting structure stays intact so there will be no runs along the hose. It’s this technology which lets you get creative and have the confidence that the tights won’t run as long as you stick to few simple rules.
Get Creative with Customising
Customising your tights with the knowledge that the holes will keep their shape means that you can get creative with colours, layering, shapes and textures. The holes you cut can vary in both size and shape, so you can decide exactly how much of the material you want to show through from your tights underneath. Try experimenting with a combination of colours to match your favourite pair of heels or mix two bold shades if you really want to stand out. A lace or textured pair of tights worn under your customised LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre hosiery will achieve a unique layered affect.
Offering you the opportunity to put your own stamp on a simple wardrobe staple, tights with LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre will ensure you can express your style with individual hosiery to compliment any outfit. Every look will completely be your own.
Tights with LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre are available in the UK from the Andrea Bucci brand at ‘MyTights.com’ in an exclusive range of colour ways. Choose from Black, Grey, Purple, Brown, Navy and Burgundy, each priced at £12. ’MyTights.com’ also has a wide variety of trend driven styles you can combine them with – the options are endless!
Tips & tricks for your tights with LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre
- Make sure you ONLY customise your tights with LYCRA® FUSION™ fibre
- Sharp scissors make everything a lot easier as holes can be precise and exact – invest in fabric scissors if possible
- Don’t cut holes too close together – this may weaken the material
- Remember that shapes will look different when the tights are worn
- If it doesn’t clash - it goes! Get creative with your tight combinations!
