|Product||Charnos Honeycomb Tights|
|Size||S/M (I’m a size 10 in trousers)|
|Colour Comments (if applicable)||N/A|
|Appearance comments||An intriguing alternative to Fishnets. The appearance will depend slightly on dress size. The honeycomb effect will be clearer for curvier ladies, whereas, if you’re slim the look is more subtle.|
|Feel comments||The textured structure of these patterned tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I bought a size too small, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these sheers won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.|
|Feel out of ten||10|
|Fit comments||I plumped for a S/M because my dress size is 8. However, the tights felt a bit small because I usually take a 10 in trousers/shorts. If you are borderline between 2 sizes (like me) then l would advise choosing the larger size. The boxer brief felt quite tight but this would be solved by getting the larger size.|
|Fit out of ten||7/10|
|Value for Money Comments||At £6 these tights provide very good value for money for such a lovely design. l am extremely happy with my purchase and keen to try out new Charnos products.|
|Value for Money out of ten||10|
|So, Does it Work?||N/A|
|General comments||A subtle and sexy take on the classic fishnets look.|
|Any Tips or Care Instructions?||Again go for a bigger size if in doubt. With regards to washing, a machine wash should be fine for these tights if you do not have time to wash your tights by hand, though we alwayd recommend using a hosiery bag.|

Last week we were featured in a great article in Candis Magazine. They tested several different tights and picked their favourites for each category. Here’s just a few of the products they loved that you can get right here on the MyTights site!
Comfort and Support: Candis absolutely loved the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Denier Tights. The Falke tights proved to be both comfortable and supportive enough to prevent tired legs at the end of the day. These tights provided a “flattering close fit – especially at the ankles – expensive-looking sheen, and comfortable waistband”. They also mentioned that even after a third wash, there were no signs of pilling or pulls!
Plus Size: It can be hard to find a pair of plus-size tights that include all the features a curvy girl needs. Pretty Polly, however, did an amazing job with their Pretty Polly Curves Plush Opaque Tights according to the magazine. “Generous through the thighs” and a “soft, comfortable waistband” made these tights a favourite for the ladies at Candis, taking note of the “purse-friendly price for a premium product”.
Winter Warmers: The Pretty Polly 200 Denier Fleecy Opaques have become standard around our office when the temperatures cool, and Candis Magazine can see why! The fleece-lined tights are “so comfortable and warm” according to them, and we can certainly vouch for it! Lying somewhere in between tights and leggings, they lack the “bulky waistline of leggings” making them a perfect “wardrobe staple”!
