Cette Vienna Tights are one of the greatest seamed tights ever!
Cette Vienna Seamed Tights are from Cette’s “Fun” collection. “Fun” is a word that worries us, as it conjures up images of expensive, poorly made one size tights made for the bedroom (is that just us?). Anyways, no such concern here, these are really pretty serious fashion tights that come in a range
The 3 smallest sizes have a cotton lined gusset and the largest size has a comfort gusset to cope with fuller figures. The panty are made sheer to waist. There is a very small amount of shaping at the heel and the toes are reinforced, but in a way that makes them look more sheer than the rest of the tights; and the toes have a run stop feature so holes in the toe do not run into the leg. All in all excellently featured sheer tights.
The 16 denier material has perfectly even colour and is the perfect base to show off the reinforced sole and heel and the back seam. The seams run all the way from the top of the pyramid heel to the waistband.
Set the heel correctly and the seam runs arrow straight up the back of your leg first time, no need for twisting and adjusting. The foot is long and stretchy enough that even if you have bigger than average, the heel detail will still show correctly.
Sizing is spot on, with more length than the maximum heights in the table would suggest. We commend Cette too for including guidance on hip measurement as well as height and weight; it is hip size that will determine whether you need size L or size Super. The cut off between Large and Super is a hip measurement of 44”.
Fit is excellent as is the level of comfort. A pleasure to wear and the seams on our test pair stayed straight without any problems. Excellent tights that are among the best seamed tights we have seen.
