Reviewed: Ysabel Mora Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights

Spanish hosiery brand Ysabel Mora recently sent us a bumper package of tights to trial and review.



Our first review is of the Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights.



Ysabel Mora - the brand


The Ysabel Mora brand, is based in Valencia, Spain, and was created more than 40 years ago. They have gradually grown and evolved to become one of the leading Spanish hosiery brands.

Packaging


The packaging for these tights is simple but elegant.

The tights are folded around a card rectangle, and then wrapped in a cellophane bag. Everything is then enclosed in a card envelope.



Material and features


The Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights are made from 85% Polyamide and 15% Elastane.

The yarn is very soft and satiny, with a noticeable shine. They are super stretchy.

Seams are flat throughout. The waistband is 3.5cm wide.

The brief/panty is generously sized and easily stretched over the waist and hips.

In the XL size that I tried, there is a rear comfort panel.

Toes are not reinforced.




Fit and sizing


The Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights are available in three sizes:


  • Medium (II)
  • Large (III)
  • XL (IV)
I tested a pair in XL.



As mentioned above, these tights have great stretchiness.

Fit was excellent and the tights provide an almost total opaque coverage on the leg.

They felt great on the skin, and the slight sheen provided excellent glide under jeans and trousers.

The only slightly disappointing aspect was that when walking for some distance they had a tendency to creep downwards, and needed pulling up and adjustment from time to time.

In the picture below, the Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights are styled with Nike shorts.




Colour range

The Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights are available in a range of colours:

  • Beige
  • White 
  • Granat
  • Gray
  • Navy Blue
  • Brown
  • Black Red
  • Bottle Green
I tried them in Black.



Price and availability

We do not have any current information on where the Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights are stocked, or how much they cost.

The review will be updated when more information is available.

Conclusion

These are the first tights we have reviewed from Ysabel Mora.


(You can read our earlier review of a selection of Ysabel Mora men's socks).

The quality is excellent and they provided a very good wearing experience. The overall fit, the deep brief and the soft, sheen yarn were all positives.

It is difficult to comment on price and value at this stage.

Thanks to Ysabel Mora for the sample and for supporting the Hosiery For Men blog.
