Hanes tights designed to adapt to body comfort
Last week, I got these Hanes shaping and smoothing tights as a sample for review in the mail. The package stated “designed to adapt to your body temperature for all day comfort.” I have to admit I was skeptic. Tights serve to insulate our skin against the elements. Thus, the statement would mean that the tights would only marginally conduct body heat to the environment, i.e. only enough to avoid overheating.
Last week was perfect to test them. We had the first cold snap of the winter with temperatures down to -15F (-26oC). Under these conditions, I usually wear two pairs of tights, but I wore just this pair of Hanes tights. What was the difference? I did not feel a difference in thermal comfort, i.e. their insulation worked as well as my usual wearing two pairs of tights. But the big advantage was less bulk. 🙂
Why is this great? Because any squeezing of the toes in boots due to doubling of tights means your toes get cold faster than without. I really love the fact that these tights permit omitting to double up on tights. <3 🙂
Hanes tights shape and smooth
Another feature is the high waist shaping and smoothing panty (photo below). It gives full control from the bra down. The gel band helps to hold the tights up without VPL. <3
Hanes tights have a great price-performance ratio
The price of these beautiful tights is $18. I expect them to last for at least a winter season, if not longer. Given that they are black, they can be styled with nearly every skirt or dress, i.e. they are a wardrobe workhorse. Thus, the price-performance ratio is excellent. I will definitively buy a new pair once these have to be retired. And yes, I would recommend them to my BFF.
In summary: The opaque black Hanes tights shape and smooth your belly and legs while keeping you comfy in winter when walking a couple of blocks. They are wardrobe workhorse of great quality. For only $18 the cost per wear goes fast below $1 my criterion for an excellent price-performance-ratio. You can buy these Hanes shaping and smoothing tights online.
Does your office dress code allow you to wear opaque tights at work? Do you wear tights in winter? Down to which temperature do you wear tights?
