Introducing TightsPetite: Part 2

We published part one of our feature on TightsPetite yesterday.

In part two of our interview, Virag Fejeregyhazi, operations manager at TightsPetite, shares her thoughts on men and tights, the benefits of wearing tights and plans for the future at TightsPettite.

There is always quite a lot of media interest in the subject of tights for men. What are your thoughts about the greater visibility of men buying and wearing tights?

We don’t quite get why buying and wearing hosiery should be the privilege of women. Tights are practical wear, giving comfort and protection against cold. These are versatile tools of self-expression and could make anyone’s legs look attractive, not just women’s.

Though hosiery was considered a mostly feminine undergarment in the 20th century, this trend is definitely changing and will be menswear again as was not so long ago (up to the 1800s).

To men thinking about trying tights, what would you say are the main benefits of wearing them?

Apart from the obvious uses for certain sports (running, cycling, scuba-diving) and general comfort reasons (working in cold environments), I would say wearing a delicate material could be a surprisingly relaxing and soothing experience.

We would also mention the beneficial effects for the circulation of legs. Long and tiring flights can be less stressful for the legs and feet wearing tights.


Not all tights made equal, so for start we would recommend to go with good quality opaques. Finding the right size is really important, it's better to choose the larger size if someone's size is on the edge of two sizes.

Are you thinking about stocking any men’s tights?

Yes, it crossed our mind. Initially we haven't included any in our collections, but we are planning to change this in the near future.

In our defence, we didn't know too much about men's hosiery and the range of products and brands, that’s why we really appreciate your brand recommendations. You should soon expect to see our men's category appearing.

What are your plans for the future at TightsPetite?

Innovation, innovation, innovation.

TightsPetite started as a side project, and we have so many ideas and plans to cut our little diamond to it's perfect shape. We do have a long road ahead of us.

If you continue to follow our journey, you should expect to see more technical advancements, innovative website features, constantly improving user experience and customer service.

We would like to think that we have what it takes to stand out of the crowd and bring value to people. We couldn't do this if there wasn't already a blooming market with brilliant manufacturers and retailers. 

We're very pleased to have had the opportunity to be interviewed by the Hosiery For Men blog.

It has been great speaking to you Virag. I hope Hosiery For Men readers will check out TightsPetite. We look forward to hearing more from you in the future.
