Reviewed: Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights

Stockings HQ recently sent Hosiery For Men a pair of the Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights to trial and review.



This is the first time we have reviewed a Playtex style at Hosiery For Men.





Material and features 

The Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights are described as follows:

Playtex 24h Soft tights bring you a unique feeling of freedom, like a second skin, thanks to the waistband that is as stylish as it is comfortable, which holds without squeezing so you will forgot you are wearing it.


The tights are packaged simply and well. They are enclosed in a clear plastic bag, which is then housed in a rectangular box.





The tights are made from is 87% Nylon, and 13% Elastane.

The fabric is remarkably soft to the touch, and feels quite light. I can see why these are marketed as '24h Soft'.

Opaque coverage is good, and in appearance is more like 50 denier. There is a slight sheen.

Toes are reinforced.

The tights are sheer to waist with no demarcation in the panty/brief. Seams in the brief are flat and there is a gusset.

The other feature that Playtex emphasise is the patented waistband. This is 2cm wide and does look quite stylish. However when worn, the serrated appearance flattens out somewhat and is less visible.








Fit and sizing

The Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights are available in four sizes: S, M, L and XL.

We tested the XL size.



These tights look as if they will be quite small but the stretch qualities are impressive. It takes a bit of time and patience to get them into place, and once you do the fit is indeed like a second skin. They cling and mould themselves beautifully and stay in place all day.

Most impressive is the feel, which is very soft and sensual. Your legs will love the feeling they provide. The high level of Elastane also provides some mild support and compression.

The brief/panty is reasonably roomy but quite a tight fit. For male wearers it provides perhaps just a little too much compression.

If Playtex made this style in a XXL size with a front pocket for the male anatomy they would be onto a winner.

Colour range

The Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights are available in Black only.

Price and availability

The Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights are available at Stockings HQ and priced at £7.99.

Conclusion
The Playtex 24hr Soft Bodytouch Opaque 40 Denier Tights are good quality and good value at £7.99.

The most positive thing about them is that they are extremely comfortable and provide a wonderful second skin feeling when worn.

We liked them a lot.

Stockings HQ also stock quite a wide range of Playtex hosiery, so do take a look at the different styles available.
