Givenchy Pure Body Tanga Tights are as great as the sheer to waist!
We have reviewed the sheer to the waist version of these pantyhose; now we have the Tanga top version for comparison. If they are anything like as good as the control top, we are in for a treat.
There are three sizes, and each provides for more height and weight than the next smaller size. Very much European/Italian sizing rather than American. No great surprise as these is Italian made tights. The range of heights and weights covered by each size shows the makers confidence in the huge percentage of Lycra in the fibre.
The look and feel is quite a surprise. For some reason, we were not expecting the very smooth and soft matt finish. Made with a sandal toe detail and shaping at the heel these tights ooze class, the Tanga style panty is classy too and quite heavy enough to remove any need for further underwear. The flat seams and cotton lined gusset are well finished and confirm the quality evident throughout.
There is no suggestion on the packet, but it is very apparent when you start to put these tights on that some of that Lycra have been used to give a little compression and not just stretch. The result is a delightful feel on the leg and a fit like a second skin. Sizing is accurate but not overly generous, particularly in the panty. If you carry a lot of your weight in your hips and thighs, then you may want to avoid these tights. The Tanga panty is not a control top, but it does smooth and shape a little. The perfect topping for the deliciously sheer legs.
Solid and well-made tights that manage to give a near perfect bare leg look. It is what some makers would call a cosmetic finish.
