Reviewed: Nylonica Silk 70 Opaque Tights

Stockings HQ is an online hosiery retailer with one of the largest ranges of tights, including many top brands.



They recently sent me several pairs of tights to test and review from the Italian Nylonica brand, which is available only at Stockings HQ and Pantyhose HQ.

I have already published a review of the Nylonica Linea Lusso microfibre 20 tights.

We now focus on the Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights.




Materials and features
The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are described at Stockings HQ as 'absolutely outstanding opaques', and 'amazing quality and the smoothest opaque tights you can buy.'

These 70 denier tights are made in Italy, and that is nearly always a mark of quality.

The fabric is 78% Polyamide (nylon), 20% double covered Lycra and 2% Cotton.

As with other styles in the Nylonica Linea Lusso range, they are nicely packaged.





I knew these tights were going to be something special as soon as I took them out of the packaging. The fabric is very opaque, with just a slight shine. It feels incredibly soft, silk and sensual to the touch.

Legs are straight and toes are lightly reinforced.The tights are completely sheer to waist.

Seams are strong and flat throughout and with the same quality engineering we saw in the Nylonica Linea Lusso microfibre 20 tights.

The X Large size I tested has a rear comfort panel. The fabric is slightly less dense at the bottom of the panel, probably to aid breathability in this area.




The waistband is 3cm wide and very soft and comfortable.

Fit and sizing

The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are available in three sizes: 2-Medium, 3-Large and 4-X Large.



I tested the 4-X Large size, which according to the packaging fits up to 5'10". I feel that this size would stretch to slightly taller than this.

I can't praise the comfort and fit of these tights highly enough. They feel simply amazing when worn. The high Lycra content ensures a perfect fit at every point.

The fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable.

The brief has excellent depth and pulls comfortably over the waist.

Colour range

The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are available in Black only.

I tested a pair in the Black shade.

Price and availability

The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are available from Stockings HQ for £17.95.

There is currently an offer on Stockings HQ and Pantyhose HQ of 15% discount if any two pairs of Nylonica tights, stockings or knee highs/ankle highs are purchased.

The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are also available from Pantyhose HQ for $23.73.

Delivery from Stockings HQ is free in the UK if you spend more than £50.00.

Conclusion

The Nylonica Linea Lusso Silk 70 opaque microfibre tights are absolutely in a class of their own. I can see why Stockings HQ say that 'everyone who has tried them loves them.' I agree: as soon as I tried them I loved them!

These tights are just so comfortable and luxurious, they really take the whole experience of wearing opaque tights to another level.

That might seem to many to be a completely over-the-top assessment, but all I can say is try them and you won't be disappointed.

Yes, the price is probably significantly higher than everyday black opaque tights, but I would say that for the quality, fit and comfort they are definitely worth it.

Well done Stockings HQ for making this superb brand available in the Uk and USA.

Highly recommended.

  2. Have just received mine through the post and had a quick look in my lunch hour. As mentioned above as soon as I took them out of the packet I could see they were something special. I am so excited about wearing them later. I'll let you know how I get on. I have an Italian friend here in the UK and he is thinking of starting a hosiery import business importing Italian hosiery, he always says how superior they are to UK makes and thought it was just because he is Italian but having seen and felt these I see what he means. Watch this space... Tony
