Glamory Satin Matt 20 Tights are glamourous!
Glamory makes tights for both men and women. But looks at the denier, fibre mix, price and even the size chart, and they are suspiciously identical. So, is it just a case of changing the packaging?
All three styles we have from Glamory are different finishes so we can’t know for sure. But we will look out for differences and similarities as we review.
Here with have tights that feel soft and smooth, a vast contrast to the harsh feel of the Men Classic 20 Tights. There are similarities though, reinforced toe, shaped legs and a boxer style panty with flat seams and an unlined gusset.
As we said the size chart is the same for all styles and all our samples came in size 44-46. Whereas the male example came up short, this style was sized precisely as expected.
Fit on the leg is excellent, the boxer style brief is knitted to provide as much room in the hips as possible so although accurate sized it is a very loose fit. This is amazing if you don’t like to feel constrained but disconcerting if you love tights that hold on. Incidentally, the description says “comfort gusset”, in size 44-46 at least this is a conventional gusset, not a rear panel.
The satin matte finish is very flattering indeed, and the colour is perfectly even.
These are tights for the larger lady, and we can recommend them for that alone if you need larger sizes. 44-46 equates to an 18-20 UK dress size, the largest size 60-62 to a dress size of 34-36 so this range starts pretty much where others finish.
And for the guys, well, their male and female styles are identically shaped. So, choose the finish you like and pay no heed to the gender implied by the packaging.
