Rated 4 out of 5 by DebraD Love, love these but expensive
I so love these tights. I can wear shorter skirts without ugly thigh band showing like some of the other spanx tights. They are less opaque than typical tights but more opaque than hose. They stay up. They look super sexy. Sexier than any shape ware I have ever seen. I wear them daily to work. I usually get 5-7 wears if I am super careful, but have run some within early in first wear. I wish they were not so expensive. Not a penny wise purchase, but I do absolutely love how great they look. I would give five stars if they were not so expensive. They look so good I will keep buying as long as I can.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kitkatuk Lovely fit and feel but aren't good quality
If these tights would last longer I would give then five stars. They fit great (I wear the B at 5'2 125 lbs with bigger legs). They feel comfortable and look great!
However, I cannot get them to last. I am so careful with them but they always seem to run from the bottom of the control top waist band. They are very expensive tights so I would expect a much better quality. I can't afford to keep wearing these at their 'run' rate!
I hope Spanx reads these reviews so that they can improve the quality as I would love to keep wearing these.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TheHunt Not at all what I expected.............
To sheer and in my opinion they are more like hosiery and less like tights. The control top waistband felt nice but if you are looking for an opague tight, stick with the Tight End version. At $42.00 a pair, these were a big disappointment...........won't be wearing them again .

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eliz79 Want to love them, but they fall short.
When I first purchased these, I was in love on the first wearing. Great for shorter hemlines and love that the band doesn't roll. However, I am 5'6" and at the lowest end of the weight range for the size I purchased and the length barely fit me. Unless I pull them up just right, they sag in the crotch...which is very uncomfortable. Secondly, the materiel is poor quality. It feels great on the legs, but as several others have mentioned, mine ran. I have purchased two pair and haven't snagged them on anything but the first pair ran in the middle of the day the first wearing and the second pair ran when I first put them on. My nails are kept short and neat. They didn't catch on anything. I felt the run start down my thigh as I had them on. A complete waste of money. Very disapointed. For the money, I expect a better, longer lasting product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLZ36 Poor quality
I LoVED these tights. They were silky smooth and made my waist and butt look tight. Like the other reviewers said they didn't last long. I'm really disappointed considering how much money I paid for them! :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by lauri Great concept but disappointing results.
These could have been my most cherished tights and I was in love the first time I wore them. However, that was short-lived as the material started to tear and rip apart at just the second time wearing them without me doing anything. Truly devastating and disappointing considering the price you pay for them. I would have hoped they would not tear like cheap panty hoes , but alas they did. Hopefully, they can create a stronger product with the same feel and concept. Would be nice to have tights that last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Taurus Great looking but terrible longevity
I loved my haute couture but only had them on a half hour while riding to a wedding when looking down I saw two holes above the knee.
I had a watch on my left arm and it must have brushed my hosiery while I was driving.That was enough to cause the holes and waste $42 plus dollars. These hose were a little too delicate and costly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MO429 Disappointed with quality
In a previous review I wrote that I was very happy with this purchase, but I am reviewing again to say that after a second wearing I am extremely disappointed with the quality of the Haute Contour Tights. By the middle of my second day wearing these, a small hole had appeared on the bottom of my left foot and both feet were showing signs of wearing out. I was wearing my office dress shoes and had been sitting down pretty much all day. Not only that, but I wear tights almost every day (San Francisco climate, conservative office space, and I love skirts) and have never had any pair wear out in this way before. Another pair of Spanxx tights I purchased with this same order ripped as I was putting them on this week (again, I wear tights every day and I've never had this happen), so on the whole I'm very disappointed with the brand, particularly for the expense.
