Reviewed: Ufash 60 Denier Opaque Unisex Tights

Ufash are a new range of unisex tights from Austria. I have already reviewed the:

Lucy & Luca 40 denier matt semi-opaque tights

Frida & Fred 20 denier semi-matt tights

Zara & Zac 100 denier opaque tights

This is my final Ufash review and today I am reviewing the Anna & Andy 60 denier opaque tights.



Materials and features

According to the packaging, these are 'semi-matt, opaque unisex microfibre tights' made from 16% Polyamide and 14% Elastane. The tights come in a transparent, resealable storage bag.

The tights have conventional seams and there is very slight demarcation in the material between the legs and the brief, but this is really not visible. As with Zara & Zac 100 denier opaque tights the waistband is rather narrow but not uncomfortable.

I found the material to be quite shiny; they are definitely more on the shiny side that matte.

Fit and sizing

The tights come in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large (a gusset) and XL which has a rear comfort panel.

I tested the XL size in Graphite (Grey). They fit extremely well and the high Lycra content means that they cling well to the legs and hardly need any pulling up during the day

The brief had plenty of room and was very comfortable.

Colour range

These tights are available Coffee (Dark Brown), Graphite (Dark Grey) and Black.

Price and availabilityThese tights cost €10.95 from Amazon Germany. They are also available in the UK from Legwear4Men for £9.49.

Conclusion

These are good quality tights - great fit, well-made and very comfortable under jeans or trousers. However, the price at nearly £10 does seem slightly high for what you are getting. For example, the excellent Marks & Spencer Autograph 60 Denier Velvet Touch Opaque Tights are cheaper and better quality, with flat seams and a comfort waistband. You can read my review here. For less than £6, the Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights are also great value.
