We only noticed when we came to review these tights that US-based brand Hosieree called these “tights” rather than “pantyhose” which we would have expected from an American company. The clue may be that these tights are from a US-based brand, but they are made for them in Italy.
Hosieree specialises in European made hosiery, their “own brand” and others.
It is evident as soon as you open the packet that these are tights made to a very high standard. The legs are smooth soft and sheer, shaped at the heel and finished with smart reinforced toes that feature a “rip-stop”.
The brief is a piece of engineering, finished with excellent quality flat seams and a cotton-lined gusset. It features a diagonal tummy control panel to lift and flatten the stomach. The waistband is detailed at the back to ensure a snug but not constricting fit. The control top is not all function over form though; it is designed to have a high leg with a very pretty scalloped lace transition from control top to the semi-sheer leg. The lace pattern slims to almost nothing at the gusset and hip.
The sizing is spot on, and the fit is near perfect from hip to toe. There is enough length and stretch in the body to allow you to settle the waistband where it is most comfortable. The control panel works without squeezing.
The look on the legs is excellent with a classy matt finish, and the feeling is quite smooth and soft. Certainly suitable for any time of day. The lace panty is styled in such a way that there is no need to wear underwear.
We would highly recommend these tights!
