I wish these tights were a bit more tight!

I used to believe that Leg Avenue products are always on a smaller side. Apparently, I was wrong. These tights turned out to be too large for me and I feel like I need some garters to hold them up.

extremely useful review
These are my first one-size pantyhose as well as the first pantyhose I've ordered online. My overall impression is positive, even though I was rather disappointed with several things including the size. In this review I will explain why I'm giving this product only 3 stars and provide some details to help you figure out whether these tights are for you or not.

Packaging
Opaque pantyhose with plumeria lace side panel come in a standard Leg Avenue package - clear plastic bag and a piece of cardboard with some information on it. In front there is the same picture as on the product's page. On the back you can find:
- size information: one size (90-160 lbs or 41-72 kg)
- material information: 100% nylon
- care instructions: hand wash warm, only non-chlorine bleach when needed, drip dry, do not iron
- the place of origin: made in Taiwan

Material and care
I find the package informative enough on this matter. The only thing I would add if I could is that nylon should be washed in sudsy water, never with a scouring powder. Also nylon is quite sensitive to chemicals, so make sure that no soap remains on the material.

Design, craftsmanship and measurements
The greatest thing about these tights is their design; how often do you see pantyhose with lace side panels? The panels, which come from the tiptoes to the very waistband, are sewed on very qualitatively. I was a bit afraid of the lace being itchy, but it turned out just fine. Even the seams on the inside are neat and firm. Also the pantyhose come in a black color and stay rather opaque even when stretched.

However, there is one major fault with the quality of this product. The elastic waist band turned out to be rather cheap and poorly made. It became loose after the first wearing in spite of being far from tight on me.
Experience
Sizing
Apart from being dissatisfied with the waistband quality I'm also rather disappointed with the size. According to the information on the packaging, these tights should fit anyone between 90 and 160 lbs (41-72 kg). I'm in the middle of this interval (120 lbs or 54 kg), but those pantyhose appeared to be far too large for me. When laid flat, the waistband is 13" (33 cm) unstretched and stretches up to 21.5"(55 cm). That turned out to be too much for my 25" (64 cm) waist. The other parts of it also turned out to be bigger than I wished. On the picture below you can see some noticeable bunching at my ankles. And even though I consider myself rather tall (5'6" or 168 cm), I could wear these up to my armpits.

Suggestions
Putting all the pros and cons into consideration, I would recommend these pantyhose for those on the bigger end of the given interval. They would also most definitely fit taller people much better than they did me. However, if you are on the smaller scale, you can try to wear these tights with bodysuit. That would help to prevent them from sliding down a bit.
Follow-up commentary
Strangely, these tights seem to shrink a bit after I washed them. They are still too large around my ankles, but the waist part fits better and the material hugs my hips just like it should. I haven't put on any weight and my measurements are the same, so it really must be shrinking. With such an improvement and the overall beauty of this piece I would now give it 4 stars without hesitation.
