Amazon might just be the best place to buy non-rip tights, coming from someone who’s tried them

A winter wardrobe staple, to say the least.

One of the hardest parts of entering winter is saying goodbye to our summer dresses and cute skirts in favour of items that cover us from head to toe, like our thick knits and full-sleeved dresses.

But that doesn’t always have to be the case, because layering our summer favourites with winter basics is the best way to beat the cold while still wearing the outfits we want – and looking incredible chic at the same time.

And the key to that lies within the humble tights. Sheer, opaque or patterned; whether you’re looking for a certain style or type of coverage, tights are our saving grace when it comes to the cooler months.

However, tights tend to run on the delicate side, meaning it’s highly likely to find yourself with a rip or snag by the time you’re done wearing them. A struggle I’ve faced time and time again.

Which is why I decided to end my misery and find some of the best non-rip tights in Australia, starting with the highest-rated picks on Amazon.

The best non-rip tights in Australia


Sheertex Stubbornly Strong Super Sheer Rip-Resist Tights

from $60.16 at Amazon

Best for: durability

If you’ve been on the hunt for rip-resistant tights then there’s a very good chance you’ve come across Sheertex. These tights are so popular and in demand that it’s nearly impossible to purchase directly from the website, but luckily that’s not the case with Amazon.

I opted for the super sheer – but you can choose between the mini dot style or the classic tights – and I was pleasantly surprised to find they live up to their name. The tights didn’t rip, despite being worn all day, and felt pretty sturdy so you can move with peace of mind.

Sizes: XS – XXL

Key features:

  • Made with Sheertex Rip-Resist Technology
  • Long-lasting and comfortable
  • Lightweight level of control
  • Provides slight shaping


Wakuna Sheer Pantyhose

$17.99 at Amazon

Best for: sheer style

With over 1,000 reviews and boasting a rating of 3.8 out of 5 stars, I knew these tights were next on my list to try. Providing a much more sheer look than the Sheertex ones, I definitely preferred these when it came to style.*

Given the delicacy of sheer tights, I had to be careful not to snag them with my hand jewellery (a feat harder than it sounds) but I was successful after a full day of wear.

Sizes: S – XL

Colours: beige, black, coffee and grey

Key features:

  • Wears like a light body shaper
  • Clear and translucent

Silkies Control Top Pantyhose

from $36.50 at Amazon

Best for: comfort

Another pair of tights boasting high reviews – rated 4.1 out of 5 from 1,022 global ratings – are these ones from Silkies. They’re durable, stylish and hold just the right amount of sheer.

They’re incredibly silky on the skin and aren’t too tight so you can move around with ease.

Sizes: M – L

Colours: jet black and white

Key features:

  • Moderate tummy control
  • Lightweight-knit
  • Day sheer leg for even colour coverage
