This is the first style from the Fiore Medica range that we have looked at.
Just looking at the packet suggests a lot of engineering for a very low price.
Examining the tights confirms the impression from the packet. The panty of these tights is a mass of different weaves, finishes and stretches. A combination of the features of the Aristoc bodytoners range and Bumboost tights from Pretty Polly. The flat seams and cotton gusset confirm the attention to detail in the design.
The legs are very simple made straight and finished with a sandal toe.
The emphasis is very much on shaping rather than squeezing. There is no sense of being constricted and importantly there are no lumps and bulges where one area of shaping gives way to another. The deep waistband ensures the tights sit flat and do not show any lines under clingy fashions. The cycling short style is not going to win any prizes for being sexy, but it does it job extremely well.
The legs feel lighter than 20 denier and have a soft matt powder finish.
If you want or need shaping tights but want a sheer fashionable look for your legs these are ideal, and at £2.39 they are a bargain.
