Someone’s created the world’s strongest tights so we never need to worry about ladders again

The women of the world spoke, and our prayers were answered by a fellow, genius woman. No more ladders, ladies. There are finally tights in the world which are so strong, you can be held up by them like a swing.

Canadian startup Sheerly Genius are so confident in the strength of their “pantyhose” design, that founder Katherine Homuth hung off an indoor balcony landing with only the tights supporting her!

I guess that’s what happens when you make tights out of ballistic-grade fibres which are 10 times stronger than steel.

Backed by over 1,100 supporters on Kickstarter and raising more than $100,000 past the modest $25,000 goal, Sheerly Genius has inventing what they are calling the world’s first pair of indestructible sheer tights. Indestructible!

To make the tights so strong, Sheerly Genius has had to retrofit tights machines (yep, they’re a thing) to manufacture their product because regular machines are too weak for the strength of the ballistic-grade fibres.

Sheerly Genius holds up to zippers, velcro, nails, rings and even 3-month-old puppies!

The only catch? The tights are pricey (at AUD101 a pair) and can only be worn up to 50 times (before they need to be replaced). But for tights which don’t snag, tear, rip, or ladder in front of the whole office, it’s a sound investment.

Sheerly Genius tights can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter right now.

Still skeptical? Pledge US$25 and they’ll send you “The Indestructible Test Kit” so you can see how strong the tights design really is.

So soft and sheer, you would never expect them to be 10x stronger than steel. Sheerly Genius are made as strong as you! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’™ . . . . #SheerlyGenius #IndestructiblePantyhose #Kickstarter #ohshit #crowdfunding #kickstarter #thestruggleisreal #needsheerlygenius #IndestructiblePantyhose #preorder #Strongwoman #GirlBoss #SheerlyGenius #tonight #Fashion #Pantyhose #pantyhoseofthefuture #innovation #BossBabe #BossLady #BossStyle #Travelgal #thestruggelisreal #ShesSheerlyGenius #BlackPantyhose #CEO #secretisout
