Infinity 8 Tights from Giulia deliver everything that you could want from summer tights, they are light, sheer to waist and well detailed with sandal toes, flat seams in the panty and a lined gusset. They are made with straight legs finished with a quality toe seam.
There are 4 sizes to choose from from 2 to 5 (Small to XL) the sizing is accurate for weight and reasonably generous for length thanks to lots of stretch. There is a great feeling of strength to go with the stretch, although quoted as 8 denier they felt more substantial than Falke Shelina 12 Tights. The Falke Shelina is the summer tight to beat.
Compared to Falke Shelina they are a match for smooth finish, give the same barely there look and are equally good for even colour.
Fit is good but not quite up to Falke standards... but then they are less than one third of the price.
There is T-band detailing in the panty and we saw the benefit of this when letting a model slightly bigger than the suggested size do a full day test. Stretching over there was a definite pop as a thread let go under the strain. Fortunately it was a thread neat the gusset in the reinforced area and the damage was restricted to that area so the tights live to be worn another day.
Great tights at a bargain price, but not easy to find. At the time of writing the site that sent the sample had been down for several months.
