Reviewed: Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights

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



We have already reviewed the Linea Activa 70 Opaque Tights.


You can also read our review of a selection of Ysabel Mora men's socks.

We now focus on the: Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal 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 very simple.

The tights are folded and then enclosed in a light card clasp that has a plastic hook. The design has been created so that the tights can be displayed in a retail environment.





Material and features


The Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights are made from 95% Polyester and 5% Elastane/Spandex.

The tights feel thick and sumptuous. The yarn is really soft and warm.

The XL size looked really quite large when taken out of the packaging.

The inside of these tights has a warm plush fabric which provides the thermal insulation.

They are sheer to waist with no demarcation from the leg to the brief/panty section. Seams are flat throughout.

The XL size has a rear comfort panel.

The waistband is a wide and comfortable 4cm.

Toes are rounded and without any reinforcement.

The overall impression is quality and excellent manufacture.







Fit and sizing


The Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights are available in three sizes:

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



We absolutely loved these 140 denier thermal tights.

The fit in the XL size was spot on. The tights have plenty of length in the leg and the brief was perfect, with plenty of room without any constriction.

Opaque coverage on the leg was total, making the tights ideal for wear with shorts.

The internal warning plush is soft and does a super job. I wore these tights with shorts on an extremely cold day and the insulating properties were excellent. The tights were very effective in keeping out any cold air currents, while keeping the legs comfortably warm.


These tights also stay up really well and need little adjustment or repositioning.



Colour range

The Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights are available in four colours:

  • Gray
  • Navy Blue
  • Brown
  • Black
We reviewed a pair in Navy Blue.



Price and availability


We do not have any current information on where the Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights are stocked, or how much they cost.

The review will be updated when more information is available.

Conclusion


The Ysabel Mora 140 Denier Thermal Tights are top quality thermal tights. 

It is difficult to add more than what has already been written above. The fit, quality and overall wearing experience were all excellent.

These tights do a great job of keeping your legs warm and cosy.

Highly recommended.

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