A recent teenage visitor to TightsFashion was very keen to tell us what teenage girls want this season, and the answer in a two words was “these tights”. Paired either with shorts or a mini skirt the wool/acrylic fibre gives a fashionably chunky look and promises warmth too. Being footless they can be paired either will heels or with socks and boots and can be worm for several days on the run without the need to wash them.
Our test pair came in the smallest of the four sizes and to our surprise it featured the style of gusset only see on large sizes in Europe... the V shaped back panel that some call a “comfort gusset”. We must assume this detail features on all sizes. The seams in the panty are well made but not flat.
The waistband is a plain but highly functional elastic strip just over 2cm deep. There is no cuff at the ankle, just a seam like detail to stop the knitting unravelling.
Sizing is accurate.
Well made, comfortable and practical tights ideal for the colder months of the year whatever your age.
