What's A Denier?

When shopping for hosiery, it’s common to see the term "denier". However, "what’s a denier?" you may ask, or “how do I determine the denier in my stockings?”. We have created a fashion infographic to help answer those questions.

Denier is the unit of measure used for determining the thickness and weight of the yard used for hosiery. Thick opaque stockings tend to have a high number of denier, while (ultra) sheer stockings tend to have a smaller number of denier.

Weather can also factor into how to choose your stockings. For warmer temperature, we recommend wearing thigh highs that have low denier. In contrast, we recommend wearing stockings with a high denier for cold temperature. Learn more about the definition of a denier in our hosiery glossary. For questions and feedback, comment below.
