Comments: I cannot stress how soft We Love Colors tights are. I seriously couldn't stop touching my legs just to feel how soft they were. There is a lot of give allowing them to go on easy and still providing the opaque look. They wear really well and are comfortable. I didn't notice a swish nice that pantyhose often make. They were a bit loose around the crotch by the end of the day but I never felt insecure about droopy drawers or anything.
Washing instructions say to hand wash separately and drip dry. This is incredibly important as the first time I washed them a lot of dye came out in the water -- a shocking amount actually. Surprisingly this didn't seem to affect the color of the tights. At least to my eye. They dried quickly on the line and seemed to go back to their original shipping.
I actually reviewed another pair of We Love Colors tights for my shopping blog and ended up with runs in the toes within a few hours. I think this was due to me having putting them on like pantyhose and not realizing how generous the material really is. With this pair I allowed for more fabric at the toes and had no runs what-so-ever. At 5'8", I had no problem with length.
Next to softness I love the fact that they come in over 50 colors -- for every occasion -- making them a unique product for every age group and taste.
Satisfaction: Very High! These opaque tights are incredibly comfortable on and so soft to the touch.
