Special Focus: Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Today we will be taking an in depth look of Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights!

These were one of the pairs of tights that were graciously sent to me by Legwear International. I gotta say that seeing these kinda fascinated me because I have never tried or ever thought I would get dance tights because personally I don't dance nor am I involve in dancing in any capacity. I was really thinking how these would feel on me.

First look

I really like the packaging for these tights,they were packed inside of a big cardboard slip with the clear plastic slip containing the hose.I was given a pair of Light Toasted coloured ones in L by Legwear International. As I took them out they felt pretty smooth and soft. These are 70 denier, had reinforced toe sand, tights were dyed to match gusset, sheer to waist(I doubt it would be nice to show your audiences your control top..)

Putting them on

It was pretty easy and smooth to put them on, although these were L, they could stretch pretty well and not beyond the point overstretching and these are indeed very durable feeling as these are made for dance.

Feel and look

These indeed felt very smooth and smooth to touch, they provide very good glide under bottoms as well. As you can see on the photo above, these are indeed shiny and it's shine is being enhanced with light reflected on them. 

Here is a look I have came out with the Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights:

Pros: Very elastic and very durable, clings to you like second skin, soft, comfortable, smooth, shiny(good for dancers who want it), very decently priced, although the sizes may seem kinda limited however because of the good elasticity, it isn't difficult to fit into them & very suitable for dancers or performers looking for decently priced and durable tights & keeps legs decently warm.

Cons: These shimmer style probably won't be very popular with men who wanna wear them out with shorts and it will cause even more eye drops to their legs.(However if women are looking for durable yet shimmery tights, these are for you!)

To buy them go here


These dance tights were indeed very interesting and it was a great experience trying something new like these and now at least I know what dancers and performers wear! Also if you are looking to try something new, I recommend these tights!

Thanks for reading!
