| Fashion Conscious Kids!
Every mum with a daughter knows that kids are fashion conscious – often to our frustration. We know our girls look adorable in tights, that tights help keep them warm during chilly weather and...
Children and Pre-Teen Tights
Lumen Tights’ delivery man arrived today with boxes and boxes of the most adorable children and pre-teen tights. While my little one was at nursery school, I planned to unload and store all our cool new inventory and to do all the things one does on the website so you could see them. Somewhere, somehow allotted time and my planning didn’t quite mesh. I ended up having to pick up Olivia before I had finished. That was fine – she is usually so worn out from school that we walk in the door, share a biscuit and she takes a nap. And I go back to work.
My Smile for the Week
Some of the nicest words I could ever hear:
From a customer:
“… I'm wearing the leggings and these ones are a perfect fit …. Thanks again for everything, you really know how to run your business and make your customers happy!
Olympics, Weddings, Life in General is a Mad Whirl!....
Plus redesigning Lumen Tights home page; checking out what is happening in the world of fashion 6 months from now; running a business and moving homes with a 14 month old active toddler. EEEEKK! It’s one of those times that just seem to hit us all every so often. You know the feeling; if the day had 48 hours it still wouldn’t be enough. In other words, I’m making excuses and giving apologies for not having done a new blog lately.
EEEK the Dilemma!
In other words, your rant of “What can I possibly wear with this outfit” as you toss clothes from closet and bureau to the floor in disgust. If this sounds familiar – read on.
Vanity- is it part of your vocabulary?
First, ostentatious vanity is not cool. By that I mean the kind of vanity that yells “See ME!” on a continual basis. However, vanity, when used properly, has a very positive side.
Are you of royal descent?
Is it possible that you are descended from nobility- even in most obscure manner? Yes, hereditary questions, even in the wildest manner and probability are relevant to tights. Specifically, men’s tights. Tights have long been accepted as unisex attire – I’ll explain in more detail in a moment – but tights were originally conceived for and worn by the noblest of men for horseback riding.
Call them what you will, men in tights are sexy!
Call them what you will, Men’s Tights are sexy and make sense! Not only do men’s legwear, ‘mantyhose’, or ‘mantytights’ serve to aid circulation, help to prevent tired, achy, swollen legs and feet, assure proper clothing fit … they also happen to be the height of fashion and trendiness for the best dressed guys around.
HOORAY warm weather is here!
Are you as glad as I am to finally see the sunshine? Much as I love London, I’m more than ready to put aside anything and everything in my closet that even reminds me of winter’s chill. Perhaps the winter months seem extra-long for me because I start looking at spring and summer fashions for your legs about the same time the trees start to drop their autumn leaves. Right now, my mantra is “Bring on the warmth and sunshine”- and the sooner the better!
FASHION TRANSLATED FOR YOU

A top-notch sense of fashion and style is comprised of many small things pulled together with panache and perfection. It's the look that makes you turn your head and wonder if you could pull it off. These head-turners range from cutting edge to classic; from tres chic and sophisticated to run-through-the meadows floral and breezy.

Pregnancy is exciting – and often less than comfortable. When I was pregnant with my daughter I must have tried a dozen different brands of tights. All claimed to be designed specifically to accommodate the growing kicking bulge I was toting around. Finally I stumbled across the two maternity tights we carry. I know they work!
Or should we say Viva Luisa Maria Lugli to be more exact? We are excited to bring you the crème de la crème of Italian hosiery at unbelievably great prices. Stupendous styling; gorgeous and painstaking workmanship and the finest of materials go into each and every pair of Luisa Maria Lugli (LML for short) fancy tights, stockings, hold-ups and leggings.

Fishnets fashion tights have been sweeping the fashion scene and the Big Screen as of late. Twilight star, Ashley Greene sported fishnets and a short sassy skirt in New York when on a photo shoot; and actress Zooey Deschanel looked brilliant in creamy white fishnets paired with a white dress and colored jacket at a TV awards event.
You might need to brush up on your Italian
Sei bella; sembri splendida; è bello! Translated - just a few versions of “You Look Fantastic” in Italian. Words you’ll hear again and again when you wear our new line of elegant hosiery by Luisa Maria Lugli, one of Italy’s top designers.
You Bought Them - now Learn How to Keep Your Tights in GREAT Shape
The life of your tights begins when you open the air-tight package. If you and your tights want to have a long and happy relationship, it behooves you to learn how to treat them properly from your first meeting throughout the long life of your relationship. Look at it like this; if you treat your tights with a little TLC, they’ll be with you for a long time. Now, wouldn’t be nice if men were as easy?
What in the world is DEN and DECITEX and how do they relate to me?
What does DEN really mean? You see the term on every description of Tights, Stockings and Hold-Ups and of course you know it has to do with the thread … but what exactly? Den (or deniers) indicates how sheer the tights appear when on your legs. The lower the den number – the sheerer the tights will look.
To Tat or Not-To-Tat - No Longer the Question
Whoever said tattoos weren’t feminine? I’m not talking about the needle and ink kind of tattoo nor am I talking about the stick-on tattoo decal -- nope; what I’m talking about is hosiery with a tattoo look to the embroidered design motif.
Definitely not to stay hidden in the dressing room!
Way back in August of 1960 Brian Hyland’s song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" hit the top of music charts around the world; ever since polka dots have been synonymous with overcoming shyness and with pure joie de vivre. Music Legs celebrates the same spirit of fun and sassiness with their Polka Dot thigh-high hold-up stockings.
Musings and a glass of wine
Lumen Tights was founded because I love unique high quality hosiery and I could rarely find what I loved. It was just that simple. I wanted to be able to find products I truly liked; not hosiery I had to buy because I needed to wear tights to work.
