Wimbledon Whites & Compression Tights

serena william compression tights

Wimbledon has got off to a sizzling start this week as the worlds top tennis stars hit the courts during a UK heatwave. 

Celebrities have been turning out in their summer finery but it’s the dress code of the players that is most scrutinised. It might be a strict rule – but a least it’s a simple one: Players must wear white. 

White clothing, white shoes with white soles, white caps, white wristbands or headbands, white socks even white undergarments – if it’s not white, you’re not coming in.

But it is tennis legend Serena Williams pristine whites matched with skin tone, compression tights that have raised eyebrows. The champion player has stated that the compression tights are to help with blood flow after experiencing issues with blood clots, particularly during the birth of her first child who was delivered last September.

Compression tights apply gentle pressure to legs to encourage blood flow, keeping legs feeling energised and comfortable. Often worn to sooth medical conditions or to assist those that are on their feet all day, The Tight Spot stocks a range of compression tights that can sometimes be difficult to find on the high street. 

A favourite are the Cecilia De Rafael Energize 70 Denier Tights. With graduated compression for a comfortable wear, slight shine, semi-sheer finish and a light sliming effect on the waist and hips these support tights are a great choice for compression wear that looks stylish. Also available up to size XXL.

This Royal couple might be a match, but are their tights? 

5b22564003a17.png
The new Duchess & her Majesty have been inseparable since the Royal Wedding in May and not even the Queen’s bright hat and coat combos have be able to distract from the sparkling friendship that appears to have developed between these two Royal ladies. 
Whilst Meghan’s chic new wardrobe and the Queen’s classic looks haven’t disappointed on the fashion front, we think their hosiery choices could do with some improvements. 
At 92 years old, there’s no denying the Queen looks fantastic. Many ladies – young and old, have trouble with discolouring and blemishes on their legs and turn to hosiery to help achieve a flawless leg look for showing their calves with confidence. We suggest a slightly heavier coverage, such as Wolford’s Perfectly 30 tights, in the Cosmetic shade to offer a smoother, even skin tone appearance.

 

Whilst Meghan is new to the sheer tights tradition, she’s taken to it with gusto. However, there seems to be a problem selecting a shade to match her beautiful skin tone. In the past it has been difficult for ladies of colour to find the perfect hosiery shade – however with many brands expanding their range, the options are constantly improving. We would suggest the Wolford Sheer 15 tights in Caramel to give a polished look.
