Cette Cannes Tights
Matt summer tights, sheer to waist, revolutionary bicomponent yarn. Cotton gusset and tableansparent toes.
Typical of polyurethane mix "summer" tights these look like cheap 1970's micromesh tights out of the packet.
Feel in the hand is much softer than those old standards though.
The other visual impression is of a long "pop sock", these tights have no shaping at all.
Of course it is look and feel on the leg that counts. The sizing is not generous, large size really only being suitable up to a 34" leg. As there is no Lycra in the yarn the degree of stableetch is very limited, the fit is however very good..
Sheer to waist with a sandal toe the look is fantastic. Just like a smooth tanned leg. The raised seams in the body area are a little disappointing in tights at £8.60 a pair.
Oroblu Suntime are only just over half the price and only slightly heavier weight at 15 denier.
Other makers use similar nylon/polyurethane fibre mixes now, to see more to to our summer tights section
