Rated 2 out of 5 by Danaanad Questionable quality
I have previously had great success with Spanx tights, these however lacked the same quality I've experienced in the past.
I had a 30th anniversary party to go to, bought the Filigree tights to coordinate with a special outfit. When getting dressed noticed a big hole and run at the calf, I was careful and I don't have long nails.
Totally bummed as this was a special night and I traveled out of town so there was nothing I could do to replace them. Had to use a magic marker to color my leg where the hole was just to get through the night as best as possible.
I'm hoping Spanx will refund or replace this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 Amazingly Stylish
I was in a small upscale boutique & the saleslady complimented me on my tights. When I told her they were Spanx she was amazed... she had no idea that "good old reliable Spanx" came in such fashionable styles! Whenever I wear these, I get compliments on my outfit. They really pull together a look. I like them so much, I bought a second pair for when these (eventually) wear out. Please keep making this style, Spanx!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ouiwii Beautiful but Rips Easily
These tights are very similar to what Audrey Hepburn wore in How to Steal a Million (and Audrey = sexy).
As for fit, they are true to size. I am 5'0", 105 lbs and got a size A and these tights did not bunch up or anything (usually this happens because I'm so short and there's all of this extra fabric). They are VERY comfortable around the waist, something I have always loved about SPANX.
HOWEVER yes they do rip easily. The very first time I put them on, they ripped. SPANX was very good with replacing my ripped tights so I'll be extra careful with them the second time around.
Here's a tip to keeping tights from ripping:
Put them in a plastic baggie and place them in the freezer in between wears. The freezer will work its chemical voodoo magic to keep the tights strong.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rox54 Want them in white or ecru!!
These tights are gorgeous, and I really want them in white or ecru for summer. HOWEVER, they do not hold up nearly as well as the other Spanx tights - get holes and run easily. I buy a lot of Spanx tights and these didn't hold up even 1/3 the amount of time of the others.
But if they come in white or ecru, I'll buy a bunch and be really careful!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Salemiere Beautiful & Functional Tights!
These tights have a gorgeous pattern that is not too sheer & flimsy, like some patterned hosiery, plus they hold everything in & smooth you at the top, while still being comfortable (vs. feeling like you're wearing a 1950's rubber girdle). Overall, despite fact Spanx hosiery is expensive, you will get a high quality pair of tights that will last pretty long time, if you take care of them. Tips, always use "hosiery gloves" when putting them on & when you use the bathroom. (Just use simple white cotton gloves that are sold to keep finger oils off valuable items when handling). Always launder them by hand in Woolite - they will not survive delicate cycle in a hosiery bag. Finally, keep your heel callouses smoothed & you will get maximum wear out of them.

I loved the pattern, but found that these tighhts ripped easily. I'm not used to this from Spanx, as my other tights all lasted a full season and sometimes two seasons. Too expensive for a couple of times of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shannon0603 Must have piece!
I have to admit, the first time I put these on they had 3 large holes at the thigh near the compression part. I would have taken them off but I was late for work and you couldn't see them under my dress. I have meant to return them for months but love them so much I don't want to be without them. I have thrown them in the wash by accident several times not inside a garment bag and they come out perfect every time.
So...if they can start with a hole and last this long, they are worth it. I wear them very often. Highly recommend....without a hole :)
