Cervin Paris Esprit Couture Tights are incredible!
Thank you to Cervin Paris for providing the original artwork photo below to show how these tights look on the leg.
We liked the Esprit Couture stockings, so we have high hopes for the tights. Unlike the stockings, the tights contain 20% Lycra.
On the card these tights have the look of classic nylon stockings, only when you unwrap them do you see the brief and the waistband that reveals them to be sheer to waist tights.
Our test pair were nude in colour with chocolate detailing (as per the photo). There is a deep reinforced toe and a knitted in an entirely shaped heel that comes to a classic point and joins the back seam. The seam is a wholly stitched 3-thread seam, far superior to the seams on most seamed tights. The seam runs to the top of the thigh.
The brief is finished with a gusset and flat seams. There is a 2cm thick waistband with a 4cm thick reinforced band between it and the sheer legs.
The length of both leg and brief looks very good, probably made this way as the sewn seam will limit stretch lengthways.
The seam and heel are the sexiest we have seen on a pair of tights, and unlike many “fully fashioned” tights the foot is long enough to position the heel regardless of foot size correctly. In fact, if you have small feet, you may find the heel too far up your leg.
These tights fit beautifully and feel fantastic on the leg. The waistband sits well and provides a comfortable fit. A joy to wear and taken to another level by the classic detailing. High heels, a short skirt and a pleasant evening out are all you need to go with them.
