Guest review: Kunert Velvet 80 Tights

We recently published the first review from Faria, one of Hosiery For Men's guest reviewers. Faria is a business entrepreneur based in the USA.

Faria previously reviewed the Falke Pure Shine 15 Tights.

She has now reviewed the Kunert Velvet 80 Tights, a sample of which was kindly provided by UK Tights.


The first thing about noticed was not the packaging but actually the instant look of these tights. As it has a velvet touch and feel to it, you can actually SEE that, and you will know what I mean when you buy them!

The packaging came as normal and on opening, the black is jet black and gorgeous.

Material and features

UK Tights describe these tights as follows:

"One of Kunert's thickest and softest items to date, Kunert Velvet 80 is super thick and yet as soft as can be. Many extra thick opaques are woolly and fluffy and can feel a little invasive when worn. Not with Velvet 80. It is woven perfectly for a form fitting look and yet it is as warm and winter ready as their other incredible opaques."

The Kunert Velvet 80 Tights are made with 92% Polyamide and 8% Elastane. They are 48 denier but have an 80 denier appearance.

These tights are opaque but they allow the legs to to breathe. The material is velvety soft.

They include a cotton lined gusset as well as a reinforced toe and heel area which means they will be longer lasting when you're wearing those shoes you can't take off all day.

Fit and sizing

The Kunert Velvet 80 Tights are available in five sizes at UK Tights:

  • II 
  • III 
  • IV 

I tested the III size (42-44)

Perhaps I should have taken a smaller size as they were a little long, but they still felt great on my legs and stomach area.

I also feel these made my stomach and legs just go 'sloop': all sucked in now! The velvety feel is luxurious and smooth. As the denier is 80, you can rely on these lasting long after several washes too. I even thought I had snagged them at one stage but they proved to be resilient.

Colour range

The Kunert Velvet 80 Tights are available in five colours at UK Tights:

  • Black 
  • Marine 
  • Anthracite

I tested the Black shade.

Price and availability

The Kunert Velvet 80 Tights are priced at £17.99 at UK Tights.


I would recommend these tights particularly for the Autumn/Winter season as the warm feel they provide seems perfect for harsher weather.
