NEW PATENTED WAISTBAND

These tights have a patented low-rise waistband designed to lay flat against your body, no matter how curvy you are. The best part? Because it flares out off-body, it doesn't dig in or roll down when it's on your body—the beautiful stretch lace stays in place and moves with you thanks to a thin, silicone backing. 

MADE IN AMERICA

To help keep manufacturing jobs in the U.S., LOHO's partnered with Klauber Brothers, a sixth-generation family-owned lace supplier based out of New York (and the creators of Hanky Panky’s signature lace waistband). The lace waistband is then sent to CC Hosiery, a family-owned hosiery mill based out of Biscoe, North Carolina, where they knit, sew, dye board, label, package, and ship the tights out to you.

THE LIGHTBULB MOMENT

I wore my underwear on the outside of my tights for years. It was the only way they'd stay up after I cut that nasty elastic waistband off. It was a "trick" I had, like many women, to make tights more comfortable.

I'll never forget the day I came up with this bright idea. I was getting ready to go dancing, and a girlfriend told me if I cut the sides of my tights, they'd loosen up. It honestly didn't do anything for me, so I cut the entire elastic waistband off. Little did I know, they wouldn't stay up without it. Halfway through the night, I about had it. I was tired of pulling up my tights and charged into the bathroom to rip them off. After taking them off, it dawned on me that I could just wear my underwear on the outside of my tights to keep them up. And the minute I pulled my underwear over the top, I had this epiphany: why don't my tights have the same waistband as my underwear? A waistband that didn't dig in, roll down, sag, or go up to my bra, but looked sexy and followed the curves of my body. So that's when I decided to make a pair that did. 

I'm not a fashion designer by trade, so I sought out the help of a pattern maker. The first time we met, I brought her a basket of lace, legs, and sad sketches, but thankfully she saw my vision. It took us over a year to find the right lace and backing to create the perfect fit. We tried it all: rubber, silicone, soft lace, stiff lace, stretch lace, different heights of lace. And I'll never forget the moment I put on that final prototype. It was like magic. The tights literally felt like they were made for my body. I felt sexy. I felt like dancing. And I realized I totally revolutionized a product. A product every woman had a hack to wearing. It's crazy, but I've put in six years of work perfecting the design, patenting it, and finding the right manufacturers for LOHO, so you know you're putting on a truly innovative pair of tights.

I don't want you to miss out on getting a pair from our first production run, so make sure you pre-order now.
