The packet notes tell us all about the collection but nothing about this style. There is a size chart on the packet, three sizes are available, Medium, Tall and Extra Tall.
The simplest way to explain how these tights look is to imagine a pair of fishnets and a pair of sheer tights merged into one. The fishnet design runs from the sheer toes all the way to the narrow finger band which is itself topped off with a deep waistband.
The panty is constructed with flat seams and finished with a cotton lined gusset.
The look on your legs is not much different to conventional fishnets, except at the toes. The sheer toe greatly improves comfort compared to a fishnet, but the look would not work with open toe shoes. For fit and comfort these are much better than fishnets.
Levante tights are usually generously sized but in this case we would say to heed the advice on the packet and go up a size if you are borderline. The fit in the hips was particularly slim.
Well worth trying if you like the look of fishnet tights but not how they feel. These tights feel as good as they look.
