The beauty and fashion industry are full of over blown claims for miracle cures for whichever neuroses they are currently pushing.  Magazines, social media and the internet in general are full of "what's wrong with you and how to fix it!"  So for a hosiery company to claim that tights can make you happy will sound a bit of a stretch (to excuse the pun!)

Yet there is science behind it!  Acupuncture-inspired ITEM m6 tights claim to increase your energy and give you an all-round sense of wellbeing.

Is Compression Hosiery Fashion's Answer to Prozac?

Morwenna Ferrier of the Guardian hates tights and loves acupuncture which made her a great tester when it came to the claims that item m6 compression tights and socks make their wearer calmer, more energised and happier.  (Read the original Guardian article HERE)

ITEM m6 hosiery targets one of the most widely used acupuncture/acupressure points for general wellbeing, stimulating increased circulation and energy, stress reduction and an overall feeling of lightness.  Although compression technology has been around for over 60 years, it's not been commonly used outside medical applications, and certainly not in a fashion context.  Most people will associate compression socks and stockings with flying and post-operative therapeutic treatment against deep vein thrombosis.  Recent developments in sportswear has shown compression technology used in injury prevention. 

As Morwenna discovered in discussion with her own acupuncturist "There is nothing to replace a balanced lifestyle that includes regular exercise, an appropriate diet, good sleep and regular acupuncture treatments. However, for people trapped in offices for long hours, these ITEM m6 tights may prove gently beneficial.”

A Beauty Secret Weapon?

Having discovered Beauty Tights in the ITEM m6 range as part of the search for perfect fitting and comfortable tights, the Divine Legs team can agree - and so can our customers!  Here are a couple of recent reviews from our website:

"Fab feel legs

These anti-cellulite tights are great. I have always struggled to get tights that fit properly due to my height and size but the sizing of these tights are very accurate. As soon as I put them on my legs, hips, bottom and tummy felt instantly slimmer due to the compression within the tights. The tights, to the touch, have a fab feel to them and they wash incredibly well."

 

"bye bye cellulite

What can I say, I love these anti-cellulite tights! As soon as you put these on you can feel the compression and see instantly how they smooth out imperfections. I saw a difference on the backs of my thighs within two wears, not many anti-cellulite products can boost that performance.
I also love the way your feet fit in easily when putting on the tights, they are so well designed."

Happiness and Comfort in a Box!

Beauty Tights, the anti cellulite secret weapon, do go on and feel a little like shape wear.  It can be a little daunting at first as they come out of the box looking way too small!  They are deceptively stretchy and soft – giving the legs a hug from toes to waist.  Once you have them on, you will forget you are wearing them because unlike a lot of shape wear they are so comfortable.

Beauty tights have a wide waist band which doesn't dig in or roll down (one of the main irritations with many tights). A fitted foot, ankle and calf give your leg a super smooth look, while the shaping body instantly slims the hips and thighs whilst also giving a bottom lift, and a confidence boost too.

Made of high tech compression and ceramic crystals, which combine to make a very effective cellulite treatment, Beauty Tights also increase circulation and collagen production to keep skin firm, smooth and moisturised.  Offering a noticeable difference in the appearance of cellulite in as little as 3 wears, Beauty Tights create a lot more happiness!   

And because they are so well engineered they are extremely durable, machine washable and quick drying.  No high maintenance hand washing required.  Each wear is a beauty treatment while you are getting on with your busy life!

 

As Morwenna points out in her Guardian article, "It’s fairly common for fashion to suggest that clothes affect your life (for example, red will get you laid and black will do the opposite)" but here at Divine Legs we can agree with Mathias Schulz, head of international sales at Medi, a German company that makes Beauty tights: "They do work”!
