They say that first impressions are the most important. Well, the first impression here is that these tights feel so light even on the card that you wonder if they are there. Luckily you can see them, and they look adorable too, even in the packet you can see the flat seams and lined gusset.
Once out of the packet you are struck by the fineness and softness of sheer to waist material.
Sheer to waist is perhaps not entirely accurate as there are two exciting design features. Firstly the body is made relatively short so that the very narrow waistband can sit at hip level. Secondly, the underside of the feet has non slip appliqué in the form of the MaxMara M.
Leg length does not look overly generous, but the high Lycra content promises good stretch. The heels are shaped.
A lot of very careful smoothing and stretching was needed to get these tights on. Sizing is not overly generous, quite snug in both length and width. Once on though they fit like a second skin. So sheer that the effect is that of a perfectly tanned leg. Very smooth to the touch, and particularly nice when you cross your legs.
The sandal toe and non-slip foot make these tights ideal for summer wear with open-toe shoes or mules. The low waistband will ensure they stay out of sight. Beautiful tights that we have no problem recommending.
