In the U.S. "tights" are the opaque, thicker form of leg-covering that runs all the way to the waist. "Pantyhose" are the sheer ones. Tights are more often, but not exclusively, worn by little girls and often come in bright colors. So, both terms are common but imply slightly different articles of clothing.
