Back to tights time.

Which opaque tights have a good control top, and stay up, and feel comfortable?

How do they compare to the Levante Bodytones Lux Satin Opaque 60 Denier? These have a very good control top.

Everything I tried this year was terrible. Even the really expensive pairs. I spent a ton of money. Such a waste.
BH tracked down the DKNY super opaque control top 00325 tights, that I wore decades ago, the one with the white package, and we're finally back on track. Now I just need to find more pairs lol.

Where did you buy them, do you have a link?

Got a 3 pack of No Nonsense black opaque control top from Amazon for under $17. Wearing first one today so not sure how it will hold up, but the price is good. So far it's comfortable and fits me well and it looks good too.


A year later, did they last?

I see theyre highly rated and very reasonable on Amazon:

No Nonsense Women's Super-Opaque

https://www.amazon.com/No-Nons.....psc=1

The Control Top part looks very sheer in the photo so I assume they dont control all that much.

If youre familiar with Levante Opaque tights, how do they compare?

Century 21 sells them for half Amazon's price. They have two kinds; one is 40 denier with no control top and the one I bought was 60 denier with control top (called super opaque). The ankle is thick too, so you need to pull taught over your foot before you pull the tights up your legs, if you have thin ankles.

Thanks! I located the size chart on Bloomingdales.com

https://www.bloomingdales.com/.....66388

SIZE HEIGHT (in) WEIGHT (LB)
1 4'11"- 5'6" 100-150
2 5'3"-6'0" 120-170
3 5'2"-6'0" 165-200
4 5'2"-6'0" 155-180
5 5'2"-6'0" 255-300

Does this mean anyone under 5' 6" and 150 pounds, should get size 1?

And this is weird, on Century they offer small medium and tall, with no size chart to clarify (and no number sizes) for tights by the identical name. I assume Century has these tights made for them, perhaps slightly differently.

If you don't need a brand name Target sells good quality cheap tights. The brand was formerly called Merona, now it is New Day.

They run full. Sizes go by small, medium like Amazon shows. For 5'6" and 125 lbs go small. For 5'6" and 150 lbs go medium.

Theyre the same $8 as the DKNY at Century.
