Very many women young and old have asked the same question again and again: What is the difference between regular tights and microfiber tights? basically, which ones are thicker and what's the difference?
Microfiber tights are an excellent sort of nylon which is softer and more stretchy. As far as stretch goes, it's more a matter of the Lycra content included in the tights. Microfiber is synthetic, and it's substantially a number of extra tiny fibers used like multiple tiny threads in place of a single. They are generally softer than cotton or regular nylon, but again, stretch has to do with the Lycra content. Cotton tends to be thicker than the nylon/microfiber but a bit more firm. Cotton is oftentimes opaque whereas microfiber tends to be a little more sheer, and nylon would be even sheerer.
