Commando Opaque Tights
Perfect Black Tights!
I wear black tights about 98% of the time and have done so since the 1980s. I am always on the quest for high denier, very opaque tights - I hate when tights are shiny or thin out when you bend a knee. These tights are none of those! Ultra comfy (not like Spanx that dig into hip and waist), deep color, and they seem like they will last. These are like the old Nordstrom's Classique tights. These are pricey, but if they last more than two months, they are worth it.
I picked these up on the sales associate's suggestion because my usual Wolford Mat Opaque 80 tights were out of stock. These were cheaper, so I wasn't expecting much - well, I was proven wrong! These are fantastic. They are a deep, dark, opaque black and keep their color while sitting down - they may even have a higher denier than my beloved Wolfords. The waistband is fantastic - there's a seam around the hipbone area attached to a soft wide-panel "waistband" that does not tug or dig. The material is strong and resists pulls/snags. They wash well (I break the rules and wash them in a delicates bag in the washing machine, then drip dry). I loved the first pair so much that I picked up two more!
I'm on my third pair in 3 winters, they hold up very well to washing and wearing almost everyday.
finally pantyhose that are comfortable
I am so happy i found these. If you have a problem with tights digging in at the waist or rolling down - you will be so happy you spent the extra money and purchased these. I've always been looking for a pair of tights that have a normal waist band.. sort of like a band on yoga pants. These are very comfortable and the tights are smooth and soft. You've got to try these.
