Thighs the Limit is a hosiery store in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, which also has an online store. Many of their customers are men buying tights for themselves and they are keen to provide a good service to male customers.
Materials and features
The Levante 12 Denier Class Tights are packaged to the usual high standard that one expects with Levante products. The tights are folded into a clear plastic bag, which is then housed in a sturdy cardboard envelope.
The Levante 12 Denier Class Tights are made with 82% Polyamide, 15% Lycra and 3% Cotton.
The legs X-Tall size that I tested looked quite long when I removed them from the packaging.
Legs are straight and are finished with a high-quality reinforced toe.
The tights are not sheer to waist, but have a brief/panty which is made of denser fabric. There is a conventional gusset, and no rear comfort panel. Seams are conventional. The waistband is almost 3cm wide.
The fabric on the leg is really quite shiny, especially when it catches the light.
Fit and sizing
The Levante 12 Denier Class Tights are available in Small, Medium, Tall and X Tall sizes.
I tested a pair in X Tall.
The good length in the leg of these tights was a definite plus point. Although the sizing information indicates that the X Tall size extends to 6’1″, for larger and heavier people this won’t in general be the case. I am 5’10” and although I got a good fit, I felt the tights were probably nearing maximum stretch.
Having said that, they were definitely a comfortable wear. The high Lycra content ensures a good fit on the legs. The material is smooth and glides wonderfully under trousers.
I felt the brief/panty could be have been slightly deeper. On me it definitely came up more as a low rise brief. But then again, I am a bloke and this style has really been designed more for a woman’s figure.
The Levante 12 Denier Class Tights are available in a wide range of shades.
Thighs the Limit stocks many of the shades including:
I tested a pair in the Hazelnut shade.
