Charnos Ultimate Shaper Tights are a great all around product! In the Small size, they look quite bizarre as the large control panty is almost as long as the light sheer legs. The legs are made straight with a sandal toe and have a matt finish.

There is an impression of quality and a textured feel not unlike a soft fishnet. Stretch the material over your hand, and the original square geometric pattern is revealed, of which later.
Incredibly light – incredibly strong. The first pair of tights that lets your legs breathe. Perfect skin tones for sensational “summer legs” all year round and ideal for warmer weather.
First impressions are that the new design is less glossy than the original, no bad thing as they were perhaps a little too much. Very little of the lustre is lost as you stretch these tights up your legs, and pull them you will have to, they are not overly long.
We had seen a style of the same name from another manufacturer, although we have not reviewed it. Now we won’t say who we think copied whom but this style is nearing the end of its time in the Charnos range and the other maker does have form!
Sheer tights that won’t run or ladder are the “Holy Grail” of pantyhose, and about as likely to ever be found as the cup from the last supper too, but that does not stop hosiery makers at least trying to limit the damage caused by broken threads.
Somewhat mixed first impressions with the simple boxer style brief and raised seams, but at least there is a gusset to help with fit. Regarding pure quality, we have seen better fashion tights, the legs are great, but that boxer style brief is pretty appalling!
These are very light tights; there is no clue that they support tights when you take them from the packet. Very many tights of two halves the straight legs are bright and sheer and finished with reinforced toes.
It was the arrival if these tights, so apparently the successor to the Charnos support panty tights that are our first recollection of tights from around 1970 that prompted us to take a look at the whole shaping & sculpting tights market.
There was a time back in the dim and distant past when underwear for an adequately dressed lady consisted of “foundation wear” and hosiery. Easy to put on the panty smooths and shapes without being overly tight and restrictive.
