Reviewed: Glamory Satin 20 Tights

One of our favourite online hosiery and legwear retailers, The Tight Spot, recently sent us the Glamory Satin 20 Tights to trial and review.

The Tight Spot, as many readers of this blog will know, are committed to providing a great service to men buying hosiery.

They curate, and continually update, the tights for men page on the site.

The Tight Spot recommend Glamory hosiery for men, as they provide such a wide range of sizes. In the case of the Glamory Satin 20 Tights, sizes extend to 4XL.

The Tight Spot describe the Glamory Satin 20 Tights as follows:

"Glamory's Satin 20 Tights are simple, elegant and luxurious tights with a shiny satin finish. The high elastane content in this product gives it stretch and makes it a perfect fit and extremely comfortable. Featuring a sheer 20 denier yarn, cotton gusset, reinforced toe for extra durability and flat seams for a smooth wear, Satin 20 are the perfect plus size shiny tights."


The tights are folded around a rectangular card, which provides instructions on how to put them on one one side.

This is then enclosed in a cellophane envelope.

The final part of the packaging is a tri-fold card folded over the tights, which is then enclosed in a second cellophane envelope.

Material, design and features

The Glamory Satin 20 Tights are made from 82% Nylon and 18% Elastane.

They have a very soft, silky feel in both the leg and panty/brief part.

These are tights with a noticeable shine.

These tights are not sheer to waist: they have a denser panty with a noticeable demarcation at the very top of the thigh.

The panty/brief has good depth: 28cm from gusset to the top of the waistband.

All seams are flat. The gusset in particular is very well-cosntructed and enhances the comfort of the panty.

The waistband is 4cm wide and strengthened by an additional 4cm wide finger band that sits below it.

Legs and toes are fully boarded (anatomically shaped).

Toes are rounded and reinforced.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Glamory Satin 20 Tights are available in six sizes at The Tight Spot.

  • Medium
  • Large
  • XL
  • 2XL
  • 3XL
  • 4XL
I trialled them in the XL size.

The sizing options, as can be seen on the size guide, are extensive.

I found Satin 20s to be quite stretchy. I am 5'10" and the fit was good overall.

The tights feel light and soft on the leg. The silky, satiny feel provides very good glide under trousers.

The brief/panty was nice and deep, and very comfortable. The waistband provided good support and stretched comfortably above the waist and hips.

Colour range

The Glamory Satin 20 Tights are available in two shades: Black and Make Up.


We trialled them in the Make up shade.

Price and availability

The Glamory Satin 20 Tights are priced at £9.95.

  1. An interesting review, with a number of positives and no clear negatives I'm unsure as to why these don't get the 'thumbs up' recommended badge? I also notice that they are also available in a more neutral skin tone shade on other sites - I think I'll give them a go!

  2. These look great, love the shine.
