At first these look just like normal sheer to waist tights, then you notice that the waistband starts about half way down the body. The “waistband” is about 10 cm deep and is formed by doubling over so it is in effect a tube, a feature we have seen before which promises great comfort and a top that is invisible under clingy clothes. The seams in the panty and waistband are flat and well sewn.
The transition from waistband to legs is nicely detailed with a lace effect.
The legs themselves are just straight, but they are nicely finished with sandal toes details. The leg material is smooth and soft.
Putting these tights on is not easy as the waistband is quite small, it is very stretchy so you can even exceed the size limits on the chart, but it takes a little wriggling to pull them up.
Once on the legs look and feel great, they feel smooth, have a slight sheen and they fit like a second skin. The support band/waistband ends up with its lower edge below your hip bone and the top at your waist. The result is a nice flattening of the stomach. A slight disappointment was that if you are a little bigger in the waist than you would like the top of the tights will roll over.
Great tights and great value even if you don’t need the tummy control.
