Our Review

Even on the card these tights have a beautiful silky shine.   In your hand they feel smooth, soft and light.  

Sheer legs with a shaped heel and a sandal toe, topped with a plain brief with flat seams and a cotton lined gusset.   The brief of our test pair was certainly more high leg than bikini.

Incredibly sheer smooth tights that look and feel fantastic.   The move back to 5 denier is a great move by Aristoc. More a glossy tan on your legs than clothing.

One word of caution.   These tights are both quite short (5’10” tall and 30” leg maximum for the large size) and quite delicate.   If you try to over stretch them they will tear.

The ultimate in refined legwear - Sheer indulgence.

Lycra ® 3D for a perfect fit
durable shadow toe
velvety soft to the touch

The inner packet is sealed with a sticker saying "Please be gentle with me, my sensitive nature means I need to be handled with care." This is over the more usual clear sticker so it may have been added by the supplier rather than the maker.
At first touch these tights are soft, smooth and light.
Visually they look to be quite short in the leg. The leg is straight.
Seams are flat, gusset is of the sheer type.
Toes are reinforced.
Feel quite tight as you put them on, and at first it seems they will not be long enough. With gentle smoothing and stretching these tights fit beautifully. Smooth and soft on the leg, and long enough to reach above the waist even on a tall wearer.
Classic sheer to waist tights

Aristoc Ultra Sheer02

Also made with a seam and reinforced panty.   This version has a boxer style brief, reinforced toes and an unlined gusset.    The wide seam runs from the toe to just below the top of the leg.   Very much tights   trying to look like seemed stockings and failing.
