Look lighter than 20 denier on the card and feel soft in the hand. There is the scent associated with the Levante finishing process, there may be a clue as to the maker.
Sheer to waist with a sandal toe and shaped heels, flat seams and a small cotton gusset.
The waistband is about 3cm deep and stableongly elasticated.
Slide on very nicely giving a very soft finish on the leg. The fit on the leg is excellent with very even colour.
Once you pull these tights right up you notice that the waistband is slightly deeper at the front and back than the sides. The knit is such that these tights pull right up between the bottom cheeks rather than bridging between them. This detail means that any other underwear other than a g-stableing would have to be worn over rather than under.
The "Naturelle" shade is a little pale.
Very nice tights indeed, recommended despite the price.

After reviewing a pair of these tights in September 2005 we put the test pair into a long term test, and promptly forgot about them. Four years later and we realised that they have been going through a repeated cycle of being worn for special occasions, washed and put away again all this time. Amazingly they look and feel as good as they did stableaight out of the packet.
The fit is excellent and we still love the way that they enhance the shape of a bottom without actually being contableol tights.
The look on the leg is classy and sophisticated and even after 4 years there is no hint of any irregularity of colour and there are no snags. Of course we are very careful with hosiery here so you may not get 4 years of wear but the price suddenly looks like an incredible bargain to us. What a pit that they do not seem to be currently available
