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.
First impressions are excellent, these tight feel ever so light and soft to the touch. Only when you open them out fully do you notice the control top, and that is beautifully soft to the touch too. The construction is most interesting, the body is finished with flat seams and a cotton lined gusset. Well we say body, there is very little actual body as what we have in fact is a waistband about 13 cm deep, this is formed by doubled over material so there is no defined top edge.
The sheer legs are shaped at the heel and finished with near invisible sandal toes.
However you describe these tights the waistband free body, or hugely deep waistband, is extremely comfortable. They smooth the waist and tummy without constricting and they stay perfectly in place all day either on waist or hips. The legs fit perfectly and give a beautiful smooth, even, soft finish.
You probably guessed by now that we love these tights. The perfect combination of sheer eye catching hosiery and gentle smoothing.
Did I really say “perfect” three times!
