So I'm in the market for some tights to wear with more showy cosplays.

I've heard that a lot of cosplayers use dance or skating tights for this purpose.

But I'm having a bit of trouble. I know a lot of tights that are opaque are sheer at the crotch, or say they're opaque and end up being a bit sheer. Can anyone recommend a good brand that has 100% opaque from waist to foot?

Thank you!

When I wore my Gundam, I had picked up some athletic tights that weren't transparent. I got mine from Dick's Sporting goods (well, the second set anyway, the first was from Amazon). Depending on what color you intend to wear, there should be some options. Here's a quick check I did just now:

Capezio dance tights in your skin tone. Take care of them, and they'll last a long time and will work for many different cosplays.

If you need a different color, add an additional layer of sheer-to-waist nylons in your desired color.

Make sure to still wear appropriate no-panty-line underwear, also in your skin tone, under the dance tights.

Speaking of, and not to hijack anything, but I recently ordered some tights/sheers from Lane Bryant and they were advertising they could be worn as underwear so no need to have actual underwear underneath them. That idea kind of squicks me out for hygiene purposes (plus what if I accidentally flash someone?) but is this a common thing? I've always worn underwear under any "leg-things," be they pantyhose, tights, or leggings.

...I've sometimes not worn unders with my Poison Ivy bodysuit. But I made it custom-fitted to my areas, I wear tights underneath, and I stick a trimmed down pantyliner to the crotch.

Most skating tights are thick and don't have changes in weave near the crotch. Just Google is you have a skating boutique near you or dance.
