Reviewed: Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights

The Irish hosiery retailer DressMyLegs kindly sent Hosiery For Men a pair of the Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights to review.

This is the first time we have trialled any tights from Giulia, who manufacture hosiery in Ukraine. You can find out more about them on their website.





Material and features
The Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights are packaged simply and effectively. The tights are folded around a card rectangle, covered in a cellophane envelope and then housed in the outer packaging.





The Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights are an interesting product: they are sheer tights but in a relatively high 70 denier.

The yarn is 80% Polyamide, 17% Elastane and 3% Cotton.

The fabric feels extremely soft and silky, with a noticeable sheen. The fabric seems to be very durable.

They are sheer to waist with flat seams. There is a cotton gusset. The heels are anatomically shaped and toes reinforced.

An impressive feature is the waistband - this is just over 7cm wide and provides excellent, comfortable grip.

These tights are a low waist style.





Fit and sizing
The Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights are available in three sizes:

  • 2S
  • 3M
  • 4L
I tested a pair in the 4L size.



Fit was good and the 4L size provided enough length in the leg. The fabric, with such as high Elastane content, moulds to the leg exceptionally well and also provides some light compression.

The overall wearing experience was good in terms of the feel and comfort on the skin.

The tights look semi-opaque when worn. Coverage is quite dense but leg hair can still be seen.

As mentioned above the Sensi 70 style is low waist. In my case the tights stretched just onto the waist but not much higher.

Colour range
The Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights are available in two colours: Nero (Black) and Daino (Medium Tan)

I tested a pair in the Daino shade.

Price and availability
The Giulia Sensi 70 Denier Low Waist Sheer Tights are priced at €6.95 at Dress My Legs.

Conclusion

For the price, the Sensi 70 tights are great quality. The yarn is really nice and comfortable on the skin, and they tights provide a great feel when worn.

I really like the idea of sheer/semi-sheer tights with a higher denier. That provides a robust product for men who like sheer tights but want a more robust and hard-wearing product.

What didn't work for me was the low waist, which was just a bit too low to provide the fit and comfort I need. If the Sensi 70 tights were available in the conventional high waist version they would definitely be a style I would consider wearing.
