Solidea Venere 30 Tights

Miss Saba Models Solidea Venere 30 Tights for Tights Fashion

None of us knew what to expect from Solidea’s range of fashion support hosiery; least of all Miss Saba, who had never worn any sort of support tights before. She was an instant convert, describing these as the most comfortable tights she had ever worn.

Solidea tights generally come in two weights, 30 and 70 denier. We expected this to be heavy and very heavy. Still, We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the Naomi 70 tights did not feel heavy at all. So we approached this 30 denier style full of anticipation.

There are 6 sizes to choose from 1 to 5XXL, the sequence from S to XXL has to be watched with some care as 4 is L, then 4XL is XL and 5XXL is XXL, so 4 is in their twice. The range of heights and weights catered for is vast, so everyone should have a perfect size. Our test pair in size 4 was an ideal fit and perfectly sized.

Whereas the Naomi style had a lace panty design, the Venere is sheer to the waist. Detailing is first-rate with a lightly reinforced toe and a textured area under the foot to stimulate blood flow and massage the fall of your foot. Flat seams and a cotton-lined gusset combine with a soft waistband to ensure the best fit and a high comfort level.

These tights have all the characteristics of premium brand sheer hosiery. Indeed it is premium quality sheer hosiery with the bonus of graduated compression to keep your legs light and happy. Everyone who has tried our test pair has loved how they look and how they feel. So much quality really should command a premium price, so the £13.95 price tag is a big plus. If you like the semi-opaque look with a hint of sheen, you will struggle to find a better example for the same money.

Solidea Selene 70 Tights

Miss Saba Models Solidea Selene 70 Tights for Tights FashionThere was a time when £21.25 was right at the very top of the price range for tights. Support hosiery also came from your doctor and was as sexy as leprosy, but times change. Now £21.25 is barely more than you would pay for some mid-market fashion tights, and you get top quality hosiery for that money from Solidea.

Flat seams in the panty, sheer to waist, a cotton-lined gusset, a textured sole to put a spring in your step and aloe vera to keep your skin moisturised. There is nothing more that we could ask for at any price. We do get more, though because, of course, these are medical-grade support tights too.

There are five sizes to choose from. Solidea provides an excellent size chart that lets you consider height and weight and the ankle, lower thigh and upper thigh measurements. The sizing is spot on. As everyone who has ever tried compression hosiery knows, it isn’t easy to get on, and you feel constricted. Well, prepare to be surprised. Saba described these as easy to put on and about the most comfortable tights she had ever worn.

Graduated compression means you are slimmed at the ankle, and blood flow is encouraged to make your lower legs feel lighter and fresher. Graduated compression also means that the panty is well-fitting but not controlling.

As for how they look, you can see for yourself that they match any opaque with perfect even colour. There has seldom been as much competition to take our test sample home as we have had for these tights; whether you need the compression or not, you should try them. And if you are standing or sitting a lot of the day, you really should try them. They could save you from needing them in the future.
