    Because I am very intuitive — or because you all are predictable — I know the comments on this one are going to be brutal.

    In 2008, I bought my first pair of Wolford Matte Opaque 80 Tights, and my fiercest brand loyalty was born.

    Here's a short list of everything I love about these expensive AF tights:

    1. They're perfectly opaque and matte. The Hue tights, while totally passable, have a rather shiny look about them when I put them on. The Wolfords have no trace of a shine. The fabric doesn't appear thick, though, or add bulk to my legs.

    2. They're comfy! The have a knitted waistband that doesn't dig into my belly.

    3. They're super stretchy and haven't lost their shape in nearly a decade.

    4. None of them have ever gotten a hole or a snag. Not once! In nine years!

    5. They keep my legs warm, even in the dead of winter.

    6. I have never once hand-washed them: They go into the machine with everything else. Usually I hang dry them, but I have accidentally put them in the dryer and they're always completely fine.

    If you're still thinking, This woman is out of her goddamn mind if she thinks I'm going to spend more than $50 on tights, that is a fair position, and I have good news for you.

    If you want comfortable tights that will look great on your legs for years and years to come, I can't recommend these highly enough.
