Spandex is 'crucial factor' in tights trend
Writing for A Pretty Mess, a young female blogger has commented on the recent fashion craze of tights.

However, she noted that things have changed since tights and stockings were last truly popular 15 years ago.

She said: "Here's what you need to know about tights 2.0: Spandex is now a crucial factor. With two per cent spandex, tights won't wrinkle or sag. With eight per cent Spandex, they'll make you feel quite Wonder Womanly."

The blogger added that tights will be kept from "puddling" around one's ankles with the addition of the material, with bigger sizes of stockings not being a worry, particularly for small-waisted, long-legged women.

Spandex was invented by scientist Joseph C Shivers at DuPont in 1959.
