Reviewed: Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights

British hosiery brand Pretty Polly recently sent us a pair of their Fleecy 200 Denier Opaque Tights to trial and review.

These tights are part of Pretty Polly's extensive Curves range. The range was previously known as Xxtra, and is a plus size range for the fuller figure.

This is the first time we have tried any products from the Curves collection and are impressed at the breadth of styles, including sheer tights, opaques, gloss tights and knee highs.

This review will focus on the Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights.

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are packaged quite simply in a card clasp that enables the tights to be displayed in a retail setting.

Material and features

Pretty Polly describe this style as follows:

"Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy Opaque Tights will be your best friend this Autumn/Winter. Snuggle into the extremely soft and cosy black 200 denier fleecy opaque tights with thermal properties.

"These tights are smooth on the outside and fleecy on the inside to keep you nice and warm."

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are made in China. The material is 92% Polyester and 8% Elastane.

The tights feel quite a substantial product as you take them out of the packaging. You can tell immediately that these are seriously thick and warm tights.

At 200 denier the yarn is dense and the opacity is complete, providing a complete "blackout:" effect on the leg. Appearance is matt.

From a male perspective the brief is top notch. The depth is 35cm from the top of the waist to the crotch. It has a back panel for fit and additional comfort. The waistband is a generous 4.5cm and constructed to provide cushioned support. The brief also has additional reinforcement but this is scarcely visible.

A reinforced toe provides additional durability.

The internal fleecy lining is what provides insulation. It is soft and warm to the touch.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are available in one size: XL.

I found that the Curves Fleecy Tights provided a really excellent fit. You need to take care to put them on and move them into position on the leg, but once on they stay in place, molded to your leg shape with minimal bunching. The fit is quiet tight on the leg. I found it cosy but if you have very large calves and thighs you might find it less comfortable.

The brief was ultra comfortable. There was no need to stretch it as the depth provided a superb fit over the waist and hips, with no constriction or discomfort in the male anatomical zone.

I wore these tights on a very cold February day and they kept my legs lovely and warm.

Colour range

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are available in Black only.

Price and availability

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are priced at just £10.00 directly from Pretty Polly's online store.

They are also available at UK Tights.


Well, after our really positive assessment of the Pretty Polly 150 Denier Matt 3D Tights, we are definitely impressed with the first product we have tried from the Pretty Polly Curves collection.

The Pretty Polly Curves Fleecy 200 Denier Tights are really a bargain for just £10.00. For this modest outlay you get durable opaque tights, with flat seams, warm fleece insulation and total opaque coverage.

The deep, comfortable brief is for me the best feature. I wish all hosiery brands designed their brief to a depth of 30 to 35cm. That would, I believe, be welcomed by many male customers, and no doubt many female ones also.
