Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lucy2 Sizing a little off & waistband too thin.
I bought these because I loved the VW sweater knit tights that fit perfectly in a Size 1. These, however, were not comfortable like the knit tights.
I am 5'5" & weigh about 138-40 lbs. I had them on for about an hour, and they were just too tight around the waist. I think it was because of the THIN waistband. It kept rolling down, making them very uncomfortable, so I couldn't wear them. Think they would be just about perfect, if the style had a wide, flat waistband~~~say about 2" wide & a little thicker than the stocking portion. I am going to return.

These microfiber tights are soft, smooth, and supple. They are truly opaque and provide a uniform color from toe to waist as the weave is the same from top to bottom. The waist hit me just where I like it - right above the hip bone. They stayed up without a control top so the fit is superb for me. I really like these tights. They are reminiscent of the microfiber tights I bought many years ago but with a much better fit. I'm 3 for 3 with great fitting tights by SVW.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MissWidow Sizing Not Accurate
I think the construction of these felt fine, and I like the sheer to waist so there's no lines where the control top starts with most tights. But, the sizing is a highly inaccurate representation for this. I am 5"8" and 152 pounds (give or take a pound). These pantyhose only came to mid thigh, there was no way for them to fit me. I bought a size 2 which matched up with my height and weight fine but clearly they do not take into account those of us with long legs, or maybe my legs are too big around, who knows as no actual measurements are listed for the sizing chart. So overall, I should have sized up like I originaly planned on doing but the reviews seemed good so I didn't. I suggest if you have large legs (around or length) to size up instead of sticking with the size chart. So my star review reflects the matter that I'm upset that the sizing chart is so inaccurate not so much the poantyhose as I wasn't able to even wear them.

Prefer non-control top, so go these. Waist band stays up fine. Solid color looks good, also has reinforced toe.
If you are borderline on the size chart, may want to order a size down. I'm 5' 7" and a little on the lean side of average, and size 2 has a lot of material in the legs. Probably get size 1 next time.
