I was bombarded with Instagram ads for Sheertex forever: “Pantyhoses that do not break?!" First I thought that can’t be true, and second, $99* is a lot of money.” Me 2 years after purchase: These tights are incredible, and they still feel like new (Sheertex claims that they can last up to 50 wears).
For those who don’t understand the breakthrough: a thin pair of tights usually break after 1-2 wears. With Sheertex you actually end up saving money AND eliminating at least 10-15 pairs of waste. So what are they made of? A strong fiber which until now only had been used in ballistic products, like bulletproof vests. The material is self-healing, meaning that in case you do get a snag, you can in most cases stretch and manipulate the fabric back to shape. Y Combinator backed Sheertex was named one of TIME Magazines 50 Best in Inventions in 2018, and rightfully so. So cool, and so needed. 🙏
* I think Sheertex has decreased their pricing since my first purchase. I know this because I have bought them as gifts to multiple friends since :)
The price point, but as said already, they clearly are working on it, and ultimately, the price per wear is a lot less than normal pantyhoses.
I also think Sheertex should work on their international shipping, I know multiple friends in Europe that have asked me to send Sheertex. 🌎
