Reviewed: Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights

UK Tights sent us a two-pair pack of the Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights to trial and review.







Packaging

Packaging for Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights is very simple. The tights are folded and housed in a card clasp.





Material and features

UK Tights describe the All Colours range as follows:

"Le Bourget's amazing and always loved All Colours range is now back! After several years of discontinuing the range, they are now being reintroduced with some amazing new colours and the same incredible fabrics and finish that Le Bourget are known for."


The tights are made from 90% Polyamide and 10% Elastane.

They are 50 denier, sheer to waist tights. The yarn is very good quality and has a very soft, stretchy, silky feel. Le Bourget state that the yarn is made with a special, innovative antistatic thread which means the tights will not stick to clothing.

Seams are flat and there is a cotton gusset. Toes are not reinforced.

The brief has good depth and is quite roomy and stretchy. The waistband is a generous 3.5cm.





 


Fit and sizing

The Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights are available in two sizes at UK Tights:

  • 1/2 (Small /Medium)
  • 3/4 (Large/X Large) 
I tested the 3/4 (Large/X Large) size.



These Le Bourget tights have an impressive amount of stretch. The fit is exceptional and like a second skin.

The tights feel very soft and smooth when worn, and mould themselves to your legs.

The waistband is particularly comfortable, along with the brief which is deep and stretches over the hips with ease.

The high Elastane content helps the tights stay in position and they need very little adjustment.

As the 'Slide Touch' name indicates, these tights perform very well under clothing. Jeans or trousers just glide over them. The feeling when worn is very nice indeed.

Colour range

If you purchase the two-pair pack of Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights at UK Tights, the following colour combinations are available:



I chose the Black/Brown combination.

If you choose to purchase a single pair only, a wider range of colours are available.



Price and availability

A single pair of the Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights retail at UK Tights for £9.99. However a two-pair pack is better value and costs just £14.99.

Conclusion

This is the first time we have reviewed any Le Bourget tights. UK Tights stocks an impressive range of their styles.

It's always good to try a new brand and the Le Bourget All Colours Slide Touch 50 Denier Tights didn't disappoint. They get a recommendation for the following reasons:

  • They feel great under any kind of trousers and have impressive glide. Along with the Wolford Satin Opaque 50 Tights (also in stock at UK Tights) they are two of the best styles we have tired for wearing under long pants.
  • The price of the two-pair pack at £14.99 is terrific value.
Thanks to UK Tights for the sample and for supporting the Hosiery For Men blog.
