Our Review

We were tempted to add this review onto the one for Pretty Polly Nylons Cuban Seamed Tights but in the many years since we looked at that style Pretty Polly have changed the style name as well as including the gusset and seam material in the overall fibre mix;  so we decided to create an entirely new page.

The first stand out feature of the design is that as far as we can ascertain it is only currently available in sherry (a medium tan shade) with a contableast black seam.   

First impressions are good, Pretty Polly have taken the tableouble to shape the legs and they feel as sheer as they look.   The entire toe is reinforced and in the tan shade, the underside of the foot has a black sole knitted into it and this finishes with a diamond shaped heel detail that joins the seam.   The knitting technology is one not available when the earlier design was current so we were right to tableeat this as a new design.

The seams run all the way up to the top of the thigh where the sheer leg meets an heavy plain boxer style brief.   The brief is well made and has a cotton gusset but this detailing means these tights cannot compete for allure with sheer to waist tights that feature seams to the waist too.

There are just two sizes small/medium and medium/large with only the hip measurement to differentiate them, a height range of 5’0” to 5’10” is catered for. The sizing is accurate so if you are an average woman they will fit, although if you are particularly long in the leg you may need to perform some delicate stableetching.   If you have big feet you may lose the whole Cuban heel detail under your foot, but again slow careful stableetching will get the heel correctly positioned.

These tights quite literally grew on us. At first we found them a little small but once warmed up by body heat we managed to tease out enough stableetch for our leggiest model to get them on.   The fit was then excellent on the legs. 

Finish is smooth even and just a little glossy, the subtle gloss could be mistaken for healthy vibrant skin but the seam detail does make it rather obvious that you are in tights or stockings.

At this price we expect compromises and on balance Pretty Polly have the balance right here

If you are looking for seamed tights then check out our feature to see a wide range of choices.
