As a global leader in the category, Hanes Hosiery provides product solutions for all women and continues to utilize cutting-edge innovation with the latest technology. The Perfect Nudes™ collection features COMFORT FLEX™ knitting, designed to be tighter in the front with ultra-stretch in the back, allowing for a more anatomically correct garment that shapes the body and provides optimal comfort. Additionally, the Perfect Nudes™ collection features an ultra-sheer yarn that is soft to the touch and utilizes run resistant technology – designed to resist runs. The combination creates a beautiful look that is both sheer and durable.

“The Perfect Nudes™ collection will change the way people think about nude hosiery,” said Tricia Bouras, vice president and general manager at HanesBrands. “In developing the Foundation Finish for Your Legs™ concept, we looked at the substantial strength of the ‘nudes’ color concept in the beauty industry and the shades of nude that are inclusive of all women. Furthermore, our research uncovered that there are universal product expectations for cosmetics and sheer hosiery – both should provide a natural, lightweight, breathable and comfortable feel.”

The Perfect Nudes™ design features wicking technology with cool comfort® knitting in the panty and legs and a flat-toe seam for all-day comfort. The updated modern rise with an integrated comfort waistband provides a smoother body contour and tummy control. The collection is offered in nude shades 1-6, plus true black in three styles: Girl Short, Sheer to Waist and a Micro Net Girl Short. MSRP is $12 a pair or $30 for three.

“Complementing the launch of Perfect Nudes, HanesBrands is excited to be the official founder of the new National Legwear Day on Sept. 22, 2017,” Bouras said. “Marking the first day of fall, National Legwear Day celebrates the return of the season’s essential wardrobe staple. Whether adding a silky sheer to a dress for extra coverage, keeping warm in a skirt with a black tight, pairing a tunic with lounging leggings or surviving a long day with compression hosiery, legwear has you covered. Lace thigh highs, comfortable tights, or revitalizing sheers – legwear pulls together an outfit and can instantly make you feel more confident, while effortlessly adding personality and polish to any style.”
