At last we have an own-brand Sheer-to-Waist style of unisex tights. Made for us by our Far Eastern manufacturer, these tights are a luxuriously high-quality, sheer-to-waist (no reinforced brief) design in 10 denier fabric, comprising 86% Nylon, 12% elastane and 2% cotton (in the gusset), and have a single conventional centre seam. They have a very narrow waistband, which is intended to be worn below the waist, nearer to the hips, and hence can be worn with low-waisted jeans or shorts without revealing the waistband. We recommend the Doyeah 1097
Men's Briefs as the ideal partner to wear under these tights (as shown in the photo), as both have a similarly low-rise waistband. They are totally sheer, having no visibly reinforced areas all the way from waist to toe, and have quite a high degree of shine or 'sheen' to the fabric. They come in one size, which will cover heights of 155-185cm (approx 5' 2" - 6' 0") and hips of approx 85 - 110cm (33" - 43"). They are available in Beige (Skin-tone), Grey (as shown in the photo) and Black. This is the same product as the new version of the Doyeah 0838
, but has a conventional single centre seam and gusset.
