Did I get sent children's tights?

If you are on the lower end of the OSFM scale, these might offer you a basic back seam pantyhose to add to your collection. If you are on the mid to high end of the OSFM, beware, as these are smaller than you would think. There are also some small differences in the pictures and the product. These pantyhose will work for some people; I am not one of them, however, and I wouldn't recommend them.
Price, comfortable back seam.
Small size, top part of hose looks different than picture, large and obvious seam along crotch.

This is the back seam pantyhose from Leg Avenue, and a great way to add something daring to basic pantyhose with a sexy back seam. The fact that they're pantyhose, and not stockings, means you don't have to worry about the material twisting and leaving the seam crooked and there is no need for a garter belt.


According to the sizing chart on Leg Avenue's web site, the sizes for OSFM is: waist 23-29", hips 34-40", dress size 6-12. My measurements are waist 28", hips 38", dress size 10 (I re-measured to make sure). I am at the higher end of the chart, so I would understand if they were a little tight, but since I can't get them past my mid thighs, I'm not happy. Width didn't seem to be the issue; the material still stretched to either side, but it just wouldn't go up any further. I'm 5'6", which is not that tall, and these are SO short that I can't imagine who they were designed for. I have never had this much of a problem fitting into a piece of lingerie before, and I've bought many pairs of tights and stockings both from EF and other stores. These will fit someone I'm sure, but I think they would have to be shorter than 5'1" and/or under 140 pounds and I don't think that classifies as "most people."


The shape of these are your basic pantyhose. The material is sheer and flattering (if it fits). It does have a reinforced toe (shown here stretched to the max).

The biggest design feature these offer is the back seam. I've recently become a bit obsessed with back seam stocking and tights, I have about 5 in my wishlist that have been sold out forever, so when I found these in stock, I was thrilled. The back seam is thick, but not chunky, and I think it could look great.

The back seam ends at the bottom of top of the leg, and doesn't go up past the ass, as the product and packing picture implies. The model is also wearing brief style underwear underneath. The pantyhose do darken above the legs in a boy-short style, but it still very sheer.

There is also a large, obvious seam that starts at the center of the front of the tights and runs along the crotch, all the way up the back. This seam would be easily hid beneath a skirt, but it depends on the outfit you intend to pair them with.

Material & Care:
The material is 100% nylon and is fairly soft. The quality of the material is pretty average; not the best I've come across but certainly not the worst. I think with careful use, these could last a while. The back seam on the legs is slightly raised, but it's not stiff enough to be able to be felt while worn and doesn't irritate. Keep in mind I didn't wear them for long.

They should be hand washed and air dried, and should not be ironed, bleached, machine washed, or dry cleaned.

The packaging is a basic cardboard slip with the product folded inside. It's not suitable for storage and only includes a basic description and picture of the product on both sides of the slip.

Usually I don't mind if something's a little too tight for me; I'm in the process of losing 10 pounds (I don't say trying because I've already lost 30 so I know I can; it's just a matter of time) and having something nice that I will fit better in is just one more piece of motivation for me. In this case, these tights are of no use to me; they're never going to fit.

Emotionally I'd like to give these tights 1 or 2 stars, but objectively the quality is good enough to bump them to 3. The sizing difficulties and the product differences are still big problems in my book.
Follow-up commentary
They still don't fit, so I really don't think I'm going to find any use for them. Hopefully someone much smaller will have better luck.
