A note on sizing... The Aristoc Bodytoners range is sized quite differently to regular tights. All sizes are designed for heights 4-10” to 5’10” with only your hip measurement/dress size determining the size you require. You may find that although you normally wear large tights you can wear the small/medium in this range.
The first thing you notice about these tights is the beautiful sheer legs with slight shaping at the heel, they look great and feel soft and silky too. The second thing is the brief, it looks like a pair of shorts for a 7 year old... it is tiny!
The brief construction is interesting, there are the flat seams and cotton lined gusset that are common across the Aristoc Bodytoners range, but there is no waistband. Rather than a waistband the whole brief section from waist to just below the gusset where the legs attach is doubled over. We saw a similar detail on the Aristoc Waist & Tummy Smoother Tights.
We were surprised that it was quite easy to put these tights on, the brief may look tiny but it has huge amounts of stretch. The legs look fantastic and with the sandal toe making them suitable for wear with any type of shoe.
The top of the brief can be worn anywhere between waist and hips, and wherever you decide to wear it it will stay put. Certainly more smoothing than shaping there is no sense of being squeezed or constricted.
