Luisa Maria Lugli Love Line Tights

Hearts down the back of the legs of a pair of tights in place of the classic seam is not a new idea; it is a tried and tested one that we have seen done several times with varying degrees of success.

Unlike some of the less successful attempts at heart seams, these Luisa Maria Lugli tights come in 4 sizes so whether you are a petite 4’9″ or a statuesque 6’1” there should be a size to fit you. Sizes 1-3 have a standard cotton-lined gusset. Size 4 (L) has a comfort gusset to give more room in the hip and bottom area.

First impressions on opening the packet are excellent, smooth & soft material with a slight shine. More detailed examination reveals that these are sheer to waist tights. The legs are also shaped at the heel and finished with a sheer sandal toe detail. The seams in the panty are flat and well finished with just a very narrow reinforced strip either side for strength. In the Large size, the V-shaped rear panel between the seams is considerably heavier than the rest of the garment. As 20 denier sheer tights, these score well.

Sizing is accurate, and there is plenty of stretch. This stretch could come in handy if the size chart suggests you need size 4 for height. But not for weight as we would recommend size three over a size 4 for the fit in the seat as the comfort gusset does spoil the fit.

The heart design runs from toe seam to waistband. The hearts are big enough to be made out but small enough and close enough to give the impression of a seam.

The heart seam is excellent fun and stylish contrasting nicely with the perfect even background provided by the sheerlegs. If you like the design, you can’t go wrong with this style. £7.50 is scarcely more than you would have to pay for a similar quality sheer.

Luisa Maria Lugli Fresh Tights

Luisa Maria Lugli Fresh Tights are very accurate in their sizing!

There is a choice of 4 sizes to go with the option of three colours for these tights; our test pair arrived in size 1 and natural. Size 4 had been requested as the plan was to have our model test them, but as you can see she is a little too tall for the small size which only fits up to 5’7” (see below for more on sizing).

Not being able to do a full test is a big disappointment as these are deliciously soft, and light tights finished with all the quality details we look for in classic sheer hosiery. Sheer to waist construction with just a narrow finger band and reinforced strip either side of the flat seams in the panty to add strength, a cotton lined gusset, shaped heel and a sandal toe. Perfect tights for the summer to add just a hint of colour to your legs.

Get the right size, and the fit will be perfect, the high percentage of Lycra makes them fit like a second skin. The colour is perfectly even and all that you see, you would need sharp eyes to see the tights at all from any distance.

Invisible sheer body pantyhose with transparent toes: perfect for summer footwear. Thanks to their innovative 8 denier knit they weigh 20% less than other sheer items.

Impalpable and great fitting, they make your legs look naturally tanned.

By our estimate without being able to try the sample on the sizing is on the small side, so if you are between sizes go for the larger one.

The size chart on the back of the packet, this suggests the following:

Size 1 4’9” to 5’7”, Size 2 4’9” to 5’9”, Size 3 5’1” to 5’11” and Size 4 5’4” to 6’1”

What we found on the card in the packet though was a further size table that says:

Size 1 4’9” to 5’1”, Size 2 5’0” to 5’4”, Size 3 5’2” to 5’8” and Size 4 5’5” to 5’8”

It is quite clear that the tights are made to these calculated sizes, and you should ignore the sizing on the outside of the packet, and that if you are over 5’8, then this style is not for you.
