Hudson City 15 Tights

Hudson City 15 Tights are a great alternative to other tights!

Transparent, natural look, sheer to waist with micromesh-panty, comfortable border.

The first impression you have of these tights is that they look very sheer on the card; the second impression is that they feel very soft too.

I did wonder how tights could be both sheer to waist and have a micromesh panty. Indeed, by our definition, these are not sheer to waist tights as there is a clear demarcation between the legs and the boxer brief. The legs are made straight with a reinforced toe, the panty area is made with a sheer gusset and raised seams.

Quality and construction are as you would expect from tights of this price.

Fit is very good with plenty of length for the taller lady. The boundary between leg and panty is far less obvious once on, but it is there.

Finish on the legs is very smooth and soft. Visually the effect is matt with some shine from the Lycra in the thread under direct sunlight. You would not mistake these tights for bare legs, but they do flatter legs very nicely.

Well worth considering as an alternative to the major UK brands.

Elbeo Active Firm Support Opaque Tights

Elbeo is a very well-established brand and has provided ladies with many years of support legwear. At one point in time, you could be forgiven for thinking that this brand only serviced the more mature woman. But things are very different now. Elbeo realises that women of all ages and sizes need leg support.

This new product from Elbeo is a firm support product with a difference. It’s 40 denier and opaque, and its target market is the young woman who is always on the go. A woman who is still on her feet but needs to look smart and feel great. Women who work in the following industry will benefit most from this item — cabin crew, hairdressers, nurses, shop assistants, busy mums etc.

Because this product is 40 denier, it makes it versatile. It’s not too heavy, so looks excellent if you’re going out for an evening. The compression on this product is graduated as well and goes firm at the ankle then slightly less firm as it travels up the leg. It has a comfort waistband and reinforced body and toe, not to mention a cotton gusset. The reinforced body and toe will make this a very robust item as you won’t be putting your toes through it any time soon. The cotton gusset is perfect for wearing against your skin and will keep you fresh all day. They look great with an ankle boot as well as a high heeled court shoe! Another significant aspect is that this product comes in different colours. Most support tights only come in black if they’re opaque, but you can get this in café crème too, and that colour looks stunning if you’re wearing a natural or brown coloured skirt.
