Sheertex creates world’s toughest sheer pantyhose

Sheertex, the brand formerly known as Sheerly Genius, has created “the world’s first pair of unbreakable sheer pantyhose”. Named one of Time’s Best Inventions of 2018, Sheertex pantyhose are made with Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibres that are up to ten times stronger than steel and used in ballistic products, like bulletproof vests.

“Creating the strongest sheer pantyhose in the world was no easy feat,” the company reports. “All of the fibres on the market today are either strong or sheer, not both.”

After a year of R&D, Sheertex developed a proprietary fibre, the patent pending Sheertex knit, that is strong, flexible and sheer – but it was almost too strong. Regular machinery couldn’t handle the fibre, so the Sheertex team developed a manufacturing process built to withstand the strength of the material without compromising the wearability of the end product.

The sheers are designed to last 10x longer than a typical designer pair. Before “Sheertex, women had two options when it came to pantyhose: thick tights that may last but are made for the temperatures you’d find in the North Pole or a disposable pair of sheers that typically lasts one to two wears,” the brand explains.

“You don’t have to trade function for fashion anymore. The proprietary fibre is stain, odour and moisture resistant; it’s cool to the touch while still allowing for complete comfort and support.”

Sheertex pantyhose are crafted with reinforced seams, an invisible waistband and a control top. They flatter and hug the curves of all body types. In addition, the Sheertex knit is self-healing, meaning that in most cases when the knit gets pulled out of place it can be manipulated back into place without any fear of rips or runs, according to the brand.

Sheertex’s sheers come in a wide range of sizes from S-2/3XLL with short and tall options available.
