What A One-Size-Fits-All Pantyhose Should Be

If you're looking for a cute, thick pair of pantyhose for the upcoming winter chill look no further. The Plumeria Lace Pantyhose by Leg Avenue are a great fit for women who may be tall, have curves, or just like room in the rump without having to worry about getting a run in their pantyhose.
Published:
Pros:
Beautiful lace side panels, thick nylon, fits better than most one-size-fits-all pantyhose.
Cons:
May not fit petite folks well.

Overview and Design

I love the Opaque Pantyhose with Plumeria Lace Side Panel by Leg Avenue. Most pantyhose come in fishnet designs or plain solid nylon colors but these are super cute. The floral lace design goes from the top of the hip to the tip of the toes along the outer sides of each thigh. I was expecting the seam where the lace and nylon met at the foot to be uncomfortable; my feet tend to be sensitive to anything out of place when donning footwear, but in this case everything was stitched together quite well. The non-lace portion of the pantyhose is an opaque nylon, making these tights less sheer than most pantyhose. The opaque feature seemingly creates a much more sturdy pair of hose. You can probably get more wear out of these than a lot of other tights on the market.

Material and Texture

The cardboard cylinder that was home to the pantyhose states that they are made of 100% nylon. It's unclear if that is counting the lace detail on the side. Overall these tights are pretty well-made and the material is quite sturdy, so these pantyhose can stretch to accommodate almost any size. Just touching these tights, you can tell that they are quite soft. When you're wearing them they're very cozy. These are definitely something I was able to wear all day without feeling confined. This is probably due to the perfect ratio of snug and stretch the manufacturer attained when looking to accommodate various sizes. Another plus: unlike a lot of other pantyhose, you do not have to worry about them fitting too snugly and starting to push your lady bits in awkward directions.



Packaging and Cleaning

The Opaque Pantyhose with Plumeria Lace come in the same simple packaging as most tights. It's a plastic package with the tights neatly folded inside a Leg Avenue cardboard cylinder. The package features a model wearing the tights. The back of the cylinder provides various tidbits of information including the material, size, where they were made (Taiwan), etc. It also provides very specific information regarding how to properly clean the tights: hand wash in warm water, only use non-chlorine bleach when needed, do not place in the dryer, or iron. I would wager that you could probably wash them on delicate in cold water just fine. But don't place them in the dryer. They could come out with snags or holes.
Experience
Sizing and Fit

The size of the Opaque Pantyhose with Plumeria Lace is listed as 'One-size-fits-all between the weight of 90 to 160 lbs. In my case, they are a reasonably good fit but do have some flaws. Given the stretch of the material, not to mention how comfortable I felt in them, I think this may work well for women a size or two bigger than me. I am 5'3, 112 lbs. Around my hips at the largest portion of my butt measures 38 inches. My thighs' maximum circumference is 20.5 inches. These tights are almost a perfect fit on me. I have taken the liberty of doing some research into the maximum amount of stretch one could get out of these tights and have posted the results below.


Elasticity

Length Laying Flat: 41 inches Un-Stretched and 53 inches Stretched

Waist Laying Flat: 9 inches Un-Stretched and 17 inches Stretched

Each Thigh Laying Flat: 5 inches Un-Stretched and 11.5 inches Stretched

On this note, I would say that women who are smaller than me may not have as much luck with these pantyhose. So once again, the one-size-fits-all tag is bullshit. I will admit that for me there is a bit of room left on the sides that sags slightly. But all I have to do is pull the tights up a bit and it is hardly an issue. Most one-size-fits-all or size small tights tend to be made for someone with a much smaller ass than my own, or in the case of mediums, there's way too much sag. By this I mean most of my pantyhose end up being too snug and will have a run somewhere on them rather quickly. My record was a pair of purple tights that had a run in the butt before I even left the house! The Opaque Pantyhose with Plumeria Lace is possibly the closest I've come to a perfectly-fitting pair of comfortable pantyhose in awhile. If I feel this way knowing they were still a bit loose, then I wholeheartedly recommend these to women who are curvy or tall. I would, however, urge petite women to skip out on these tights because they will be very disappointed with the fit.


Follow-up commentary
I have owned these tight for over 6 months now and they have yet to disappoint me. There are no rips, snags, or holes anywhere to be found. I still get compliments about this lovely pair and would recommend them to anyone in the size range provided.

    What a lovely product! I really enjoyed your video review as well, thank you for including suggestions on how to wear these tights. Lack of creativity on my part usually prevents me from wearing tights.

    I really wish I could fit into these.

    I have a pair of similar pantyhose purchased elsewhere that are not as pretty and cost me $27. OUCH!!! These are on my wish list for sure!! They look beautiful on you, by the way!!

    @arewehavingfun? That sucks! You should save those for special occassions since they're so costly and pantyhose get runs so easily. These are really great for the price, mine are still going strong.

    @lalapetitee: I'm taking that as a compliment, maybe in the future they'll make a more petite version.

    These look far better on you than they do on the model. I didn't even look at these twice from the product page pictures, but they actually do look sexy now that I am seeing them on an actual REAL person who hasn't been airbrushed and make them look silly!

    Great review, and I'm glad you like these! I am SO wishlisting them now!

    Thanks everyone!!!

    @Peggi: Yeah I prefer to see most of my lingerie on a real person before ordering but sometimes I get impatient.
