The construction of these tights is quite basic, straight smooth soft microfibre legs and a boxer style brief of similar weight but more open weave. The seams in the brief are flat and of good quality and on our size 4 pair there was a cotton lined gusset.
What sets this style apart from basic microfibre semi-opaque tights is the pattern up the outside of each leg. Subtle geometric designs in complimentary colours, in the case of our chocolate sample the pattern was in brown and orange.
The 14% Lycra in the fibre provides for lots of stretch and a very good fit, the deep waistband ensures the tights stay in place. Sizing is spot on with enough stretch to go down a size if you must.
The size chart on the packet refers to sizes I-V but we are assuming from the fact that gusset details are provided only for sizes II-IV that these are the only sizes available for this style.
Colour is very even and the finish is very smooth and soft. The pattern is discrete enough for everyday wear but smart enough to give any autumn outfit a lift above the ordinary.
