Rated 5 out of 5 by Andymilo12 Haute Contour Tights reorder
I was reordering these tights and was shocked to read the other reviews! I bought 2 pairs in December 2013 and wore them constantly all winter. I am not super careful, wore them with boots and didn't get my first run until I recently wore a pair last week (11/14) for the first time this year. I love these tights! They are smooth and silky with a not too tight band that smooths under my clothes. I actually like the stomach control because it doesn't create a muffin top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Linda73 These are not tights - they are cheap looking stockings
I am always looking for chic, opaque, non-binding waisband tights. These are not it, They are quite sheer, not silky and have zero tummy or leg support. I am returning the unworn pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointedddd Flawed! Ran first time worn!
First time worn, two runs: front & back of left leg, originating from Spanx panel. Did not catch them on anything!
Poor quality for expensive price!
Called Customer Service.....very apologetic, but could not help me since I purchased them at a store....advised to return to point of purchase, but I cannot do so since I purchased them at a store while out of town on a trip.
Too bad, loved the color, but will not trust any other Spanx product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KDB19 Terrible longevity!
The first pair I bought got a run in them the 2nd time I wore them - but I love how they feel. So I bought a 2nd pair with a note to myself to be careful in them - and the first time I wore them a run appeared! Too expensive for single wear tights! Spanx designers - please make the tights more durable and I'll be back in a heartbeat!

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.
