We thought you all deserved a treat, so here are two reviews in one day!
It has been some time since we reviewed any tights from Philippe Matignon as the brand was withdrawn from the UK market some years ago. Fortunately, one of our newly recruited reviewer friends lives in a country where they are still available. We are hopeful of seeing more styles from this quality brand in due course.
Philippe Matignon Intensite Summer ultra pantyhose with floral pattern and back seam design feel like ten denier. Fully shaped legs, a flat seam in the panty, sheer to waist, sandal toe, cotton gusset, comfort waistband.
As you stretch the tights ready to put them on they feel very soft indeed. A feeling that continues once you have them on. They feel so soft and sheer that you don’t even remember that you are wearing hose. Perfect for showing off with a mini skirt in the summertime. For no reason that we can see, the natural colour pair felt softer than the black.
As you can see from the pictures, the fit is perfect, and the pattern is a very sophisticated design that shows off your calf and ankle. The seam runs perfectly straight and flatters the leg. We love the flower detail at the top of the seam.
You do need to take care when soothing the tights up your leg to make sure that you get the seam straight. You can judge for yourself whether the pattern looks better on a natural or black background as Filodoro very kindly brought a friend for a similar picture.
There are five sizes from extra small to extra large. All except the extra-large have the cotton gusset, the extra-large size has a comfort rear panel. The style and quality of Philippe Matignon are as good as ever.
