If you’ve watched a pop star perform live, chances are you’ve noticed their super shiny legs. So what’s the secret to that sleek celebrity shine? Pantyhose. Specifically Wolford Neon 40 tights. But these aren’t your grandma’s drugstore nylons. Neon 40s are super luxe tights, costing a good chunk of change for their celebrity-grade features.

Wolford tights create a sleek appearance once on, and the brand has long been the secret to smooth legs in Hollywood. In fact, Katy Perry told InStyle in 2011 that she started wearing the brand after Beyoncé told her the secret behind her shiny-leg appearance.

Wolford Neon 40s are known for being thick, durable and difficult to snag, making them perfect for performances. Coming in at a whopping $49 a pair, the price may seem high to get shiny celebrity legs. But with some customers reporting the tights lasting them more than a year of wear, you might decide the investment is worth it.

Wolford tights are often paired with flesh-colored fishnets for extra support and to create a more natural look. The brand most commonly used by pop stars is Capezio, which costume designers call the “Spanx of fishnets.”

When viewed from far away, the two brands blend together to slightly tone down the shine of the Neon 40s, creating a more natural look.

Beyoncé, Demi Lovato, Jessie J, Katy Perry and even Kim Kardashian are all confirmed wearers of Wolford. And Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga are all rumored wearers of Neon 40s, given their super shiny legs onstage. With clientele like that, these tights must be something special. Bet you can’t resist that glow.
