In the hand they are smooth and soft and feel gossamer thin.
These tights are made sheer to waist with an invisible toe and with a cotton lined reinforced gusset. On the leg these tights feel and look wonderful. What you see is just a faint sheen on the skin. Perfect for summer. If you take care and buy a shade to match your tanned skin colour your tights will be almost invisible, but they will give your legs a healthy even glow.
Pretty Polly have introduced a new sizing system for this style, and others. Size Small/Medium if you are are under 5’6” and under 42” in the hips, size Medium/Large if you are any bigger. If you are tall or of a fuller figure you may find the fit of these tights a little on the small side. Our earlier comment “One size to cover medium and large is optimistic even for tights with 44% Lycra” clearly no longer applies as there is no Lycra in fibre, accounting for the limited stretch
The raised seams in the brief and the wide area of reinforcement around the gusset are a disappointment, but these tights do look great on the leg and feel wonderfully smooth and soft, so well worth buying.
