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.

Elbeo Nachtglanz 20 Tights

Elbeo Nachtglanz 20 Tights are fabulous!

The name of these tights translates to “Night Shine”, but I don’t think Elbeo only intend them for evening wear.

What we have here is a style that competes in the hottest sector is hosiery, that is a good quality, mid-priced, glossy sheer at the top end of the sheer weight scale; an area where the primary German manufacturers have a strong showing.

As we would expect of something meant to compete with the best that Falke or Kunert can offer the standard of detailing is high. Sheer to the waist of course with a lightly reinforced toe detail that features a run stop to prevent holes in the toes becoming runs in the leg. The legs are shaped at the heel. The panty features a cotton lined gusset in the three smaller sizes and a comfort gusset in the two largest, flat seams in all sizes with a narrow reinforced area either side for strength.

Sizing is on the generous size so we would suggest you go down a size if you are borderline, the fit in the panty with the comfort gusset is good, but the fit with the cotton gusset is much better. The waistband is soft, deep and comfortable. There are masses of stretch, and the feeling of strength is palpable, apparently well made with high-quality fibre.  Fit on the legs is superb.

The shine finish is less subtle than say Falke Seidenglatt 15 and pretty close to Charnos Sheer Lustre. The weight is sufficient to cover all but the darkest of blemishes on your skin. If you like the glossy/sparkly look on your legs, then these may be the tights for you. Perfect for any time of day.
