This is the fourth time ITEM m6 has received a Red Dot award in two years.

The competition has previously recognised the brand for its Invisible tights, Shape Translucent tights and superior packaging.

The Soft Touch Tights are made with ‘high capillary fibres’ to create a garment that feels like a second skin.

Available in 50 denier, the tights include ITEM m6’ renowned compression technology, the high-tech Form-Fit Thread.

It is this thread, in particular, that creates a smooth silhouette, without causing slipping or pinching.
