First a confession. When we saw that these tights were a wool-cotton mix, and felt the sock-like texture handling them in their open packaging we put them aside for another day. Luckily another day has arrived before the end of winter because these are not summer tights!
Welcome to Tights Fashion, a leading UK based tight magazine.

Tights are our main concern, but we do often cover related tight fashions such as pantyhose, knee highs and niche styles of tights too. In fact, anything that can go on your legs then we probably already have a review somewhere.

When looking at summer weight bare keg look tights, the standard against which we have measured all others is Falke Shelina. For years they have been the standard summer legwear for both members of the Tights Fashion team and the owner of a certain well known online hosiery store *hint UK Tights hint*.
When we saw the name “Falke Sensual Touch Tights” our first reaction was that this must be a new sheer style from Falke for the Spring; Oh how wrong we were! These tights are designed very much for the colder months, ideal for the current weather.
When the Falke Sensation Tights arrived in 20 denier, and 50 denier versions in the middle of July we thought we would be reviewing the 20 denier and putting the 50 denier away until the autumn but the unseasonably chilly weather here in Northern England is perfect for 50 denier tights.
Falke is one of our favourite hosiery brands with their Pure Matt and Seidenglatt tights being their day to day wear when not reviewing other brand and styles. So a seamless style from Falke in 20 denier and a matte finish is a rare treat.
As for wearing we have to say that they feel delightfully soft and smooth. These tights doubtlessly deserve their name ‘Seidenglatt’ which is German for “smooth like silk”. Even putting them on is as though they are sliding themselves on.
Falke Seidenglatt 15 Tights really knock it out of the park! These fully shaped tights fit exceptionally well and have just a slight sheen, the feel is smooth with just a hint of hardness in the yarn.
If you want to know what luxury hosiery looks and feels like just open a packet of Falke Pure Shine 15 tights. No surprise to us of course because we know Falke make superb sheer tights.
Jazz up any one of your outfits with these stunning striped tights from Falke. With a flattering vertical pattern, these tights will elongate your legs perfectly; what more could a girl want?
Despite Falke being one of our favourite brands this sheerest of their sheer styles has been one we have not looked at before. At ten denier they are the same weight as the Fond de Poudre Tights, but they are made with an entirely different finish.
