Opaque Knit Compression Thigh Highs hide blemishes, provide better containment, and are more durable.
Opaque means you can't see through the fabric. Opaque compression stockings are more durable than sheers. They also hide blemishes, varicose veins, and scaring. The fabric can have a smooth finish or ribbing. Most opaque fabrics are made of nylon and spandex. Sigvaris makes a thigh high with cotton, and Juzo makes one with silver to fight bacterial growth and infection. Many opaque thigh highs have the option of an open or closed toe.
Contrary to popular belief, opaque stockings aren't always warmer than sheers. The more expensive stockings have excellent wicking properties, which quickly pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you cool and dry.
