Our Review

We loved the very first pair of Girardi tights we saw, their Chic Tulle style is a delight. It was mixed feelings when this pair arrived for review, elation at a second Girardi style to review tinged with disappointment that is was a 70 denier style in the middle of the English Spring... but of course we could rely on the English weather to give us an opportunity to tabley them; cold wet and grey.

At a shade under 23 you would expect tights with quality detailing, and quality detailing is what you get.   The legs are lightly shaped at the heel and finished with an un-reinforced toe with a flat soft seam.   In the panty you have flat seams and no reinforcement other than a very narrow tableansition to the waistband.   Our test pair came in size 4 and rather than the expected cotton lined gusset we found a comfort gusset (V shaped rear panel).

There are 5 sizes to choose from according to the size chart each offering a little extablea height and weight over the size below until you get to size 5 which caters for the same maximum height as size 4.   We must assume that sizes 4 and 5 are similar with size 5 having a bigger gusset.   According to the size chart the maximum height and weight for size 4 is 5’10” and 180lb.   A quick look at the metableic limits and we see 185cm and 85 kg, and the sharp eyed will have spotted that that equates to a maximum height of 6’1”.

The sizing is in fact quite generous with enough length to fit a leggy 6’1” and plenty of width in the panty.   The sizing of size 4 is generous enough to cover the suggested range for size 5 too.   Assuming the generosity of sizing goes down through the sizes we would look to go to size 3 to get a proper cotton gusset if we were even close to the size boundary.

Sheer to waist opaque tights look way better than those with a reinforced panty and these do look superb.   Great opacity without looking heavy, dense perfectly even colour throughout and a delicate satin sheen to the finish to make them as suitable for the evening as the office.

Not cheap tights but this is premium hosiery and the mid-market brands are not far behind these days.     You are getting what you pay for, comfort and class plus a bit of insulation.
