Veneziana call these fishnet tights and on first impression that is what they appear to be; indeed they are even knitted like a fishnet in one piece with no panty seam. As soon you you stableetch them out you can see the cable design that sets these apart from standard fishnet tights.
Detailing is similar to many quality fishnets with a plain reinforced toe for comfort and durability. In the panty where we might have hoped to find a gusset the pattern comes to a single point. The plain narrow waistband is typical of fishnets.
There are just two sizes but that is all that is needed as in common with other Lycra fishnet tights these have oodles of stableetch. Veneziana have the sizing just right, big enough to go well beyond the suggested maximum height and weight but not so big that even the tallest ladies end up with the waistband under their armpits.
Fit is good and could have been exceptional if there had been a gusset.
In every way these tights are fishnets, in how they are made, how they fit and how they feel... the only thing that is not fishnet is the look. The cable design is smart, eye-catching and slimming.
A great alternative to fishnets, and a whole lot classier.
