Aristoc Waist & Thigh Smoother Tights are unique but flawed.
A note on sizing…The Aristoc Bodytoners range is sized quite differently to regular tights. All sizes are designed for heights 4-10” to 5’10”, with only your hip measurement/dress size determining the size you require. You may find that although you usually wear large tights, you can wear the Small/Medium in this range.
The first thing you notice about these tights is the beautiful sheer legs with slight shaping at the heel, which look great and feel soft and silky too. The second thing is brief; it looks like a pair of shorts for a 7-year-old, it’s that tiny!
The brief construction is impressive, there are the flat seams and cotton lined gusset that are common across the Aristoc Bodytoners range, but there is no waistband. Rather than a waistband, the whole brief section from waist to just below the gusset where the legs attach is doubled over. We saw a similar detail on the Aristoc Waist & Tummy Smoother Tights.
We were surprised that it was quite easy to put these tights on, the brief may look tiny, but it has enormous amounts of stretch. The legs look fantastic and with the sandal toe making them suitable for wear with any shoe.
The top of the brief can be worn anywhere between waist and hips, and wherever you decide to wear it, will stay put. Indeed, more smoothing than shaping there is no sense of being squeezed or constricted.
