The Legwear Express D500's were a popular style which we sold in good numbers from 2004, till the manufacturer ceased trading last year. But, we were able to buy up all the remaining stock when the manufacturer ceased trading, so we can now sell them out a fantastic £3.99 per pair; original price was £5.99 per pair.
The D500 tights are designed for dance and exercise wear, and come in unisex 'Adult' sizes. They are matt, opaque, very durable, and VERY comfortable! They are sheer-to-waist with no reinforcement at all - the fabric is the same from waist to toe. They have a single conventional centre seam, and small cotton gusset. They are 87% Supplex nylon and 13% Lycra. The manufacturer does not state a 'denier' rating for the fabric.
Black (in size S ONLY),
Theatrical Pink (a sort of pale skin-tone) in sizes S, L and XL, and
White in sizes S & M
(Note that actual packaging is marked in American sizes A, B , C & D which broadly equate to UK sizes S, M, L & XL.). The smallest size (A/S) is also suitable for children, so Mums, if you have kids doing dance classes.....
NB The sizing of these tights is a little on the smaller side than most, so we suggest going up a size from what you would normally choose. XL (the largest) being suitable for up to 6ft height, 36" waist, 32" inside leg.
