Givenchy Pure Body Tanga Tights

Givenchy Pure Body Tanga Tights are as great as the sheer to waist!

We have reviewed the sheer to the waist version of these pantyhose; now we have the Tanga top version for comparison. If they are anything like as good as the control top, we are in for a treat.

There are three sizes, and each provides for more height and weight than the next smaller size. Very much European/Italian sizing rather than American. No great surprise as these is Italian made tights. The range of heights and weights covered by each size shows the makers confidence in the huge percentage of Lycra in the fibre.

The look and feel is quite a surprise. For some reason, we were not expecting the very smooth and soft matt finish. Made with a sandal toe detail and shaping at the heel these tights ooze class, the Tanga style panty is classy too and quite heavy enough to remove any need for further underwear. The flat seams and cotton lined gusset are well finished and confirm the quality evident throughout.

There is no suggestion on the packet, but it is very apparent when you start to put these tights on that some of that Lycra have been used to give a little compression and not just stretch. The result is a delightful feel on the leg and a fit like a second skin. Sizing is accurate but not overly generous, particularly in the panty. If you carry a lot of your weight in your hips and thighs, then you may want to avoid these tights. The Tanga panty is not a control top, but it does smooth and shape a little. The perfect topping for the deliciously sheer legs.

Solid and well-made tights that manage to give a near perfect bare leg look. It is what some makers would call a cosmetic finish.

Givenchy Body Smoothers Sheer to Waist Tights

Givenchy Body Smoothers Tights are fantastic stockings!

These tights are made in Italy in 5 sizes to cover heights and weights from 4’9” (145 cm) to 6’1” (185 cm) and 85-225 lbs (39-102 kg), possibly the biggest range of sizes we have ever seen in one style with minimal overlap between sizes.

The construction of these semi-opaque tights is top quality, there is a sandal toe detail, shaping of the heel and leg, flat seams in the panty and a cotton lined gusset. They are described as sheer to waist, but the finger band is 6cm deep so a pedant would say they are not quite worthy of the description.

In the hand, the feel is very perplexing. The top of the leg feels light and soft. But by the time you reach the foot, the feeling is smooth, harder and altogether different, almost rubbery. On the leg, this translates to fantastic graduated compression. Very tight at the ankle but mere smoothing in the bottom and tummy area. Perfect tights if you have circulation problems or expect to be on your feet a lot.

The look on the leg is just that of a very high quality 30 denier with a subtle sheen and no hint at all that they are control rather than fashion tights. The fit is perfect, like a second skin. All that Lycra in the fibre provides control rather than stretch; you must get the get correct size to get a good fit, you won’t pull a smaller size to fit; the size chart is 100% accurate.

Perhaps not the smoothest or softest tights but certainly the best-graduated compression sheer to waist tights we have ever tested.

Total Control hosiery offers control and support in either the panty, the leg or both. Givenchy Body Smoothers massage and tone the leg letting you feel energised and revitalised all day long. A Luxury for your legs.
