The Christmas party season is here so what better time to look at some bright and colourful tights called “Fun”.
You can see from the packet that a selection of colour combinations are available; our test pair was described as golden and can be seen far left in the picture. The background is more orange than gold but the addition of random black and white horizontal stripes each one row of stitches high tones the colour down a little.
The pattern runs all the way from the toe seams up the straight legs to the finger band that forms a narrow transition to the 2.5cm deep waistband. The brief is finished with flat seams and a cotton lined gusset.
Sizing is accurate and the 6% Lycra gives plenty of stretch and a good fit. The design means that these will never be the smoothest or softest of tights but they are made to be seen... and that they do very well.
The design will divide opinion but we think that if you are going to a party this is the perfect way to set off that little black dress and to get you and your legs noticed.
