On first look these look like fairly standard sheer tights. Shaped sheer legs with a boxer style brief. The brief has a cotton lined gusset to help with fit and freshness, and the seams are well finished but not flat.
The legs have a soft matt finish and are just slightly shaped at the heel. The toes are reinforced just a little heavier than the leg.
The legs look quite short but they have tremendous stretch and unlike the more sheer medium support tights from the same range are very easy to put on. The material feels very strong.
As with other Pretty Polly lines there are just two sizes, small/medium and medium/large. The small/medium size is for ladies up to 5’10” tall and 42” hips, the medium large size is for ladies with hips of 42” or larger.
The fit is very good from hip to toe, with the support only becoming apparent after you had them on for a while, it really is very gentle support on the legs with no control at all in the brief. The colour is even and the feel is reasonably smooth, the transition from the matt leg to the brief is sufficiently subtle to go unnoticed if someone were to get a brief look. If you plan to wear with a shorter skirt or shorts we would suggest these rather than the Pretty Polly Leg Lift Medium Support Tights.
Highly recommended, particularly if you spend a lot of time on your feet.
