Reviewed: Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights

Today we have another review from the new range of Ultimate tights from hosiery brand Aristoc.

So far we have reviewed the following:

Aristoc Ultimate Smoothing 15 Denier Tights

Aristoc Ultimate 10 Denier Ladder Resist Matt Tights

Aristoc Ultimate 10 Denier Matt Tights

We now focus on the Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights.


The Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights come in the new packaging that has been created for the whole of the Aristoc Ultimate collection. There is now a uniform design aesthetic to the whole range.

The tights are folded around a card rectangle that provides information on styles in the Ultimate range.

This is then sealed in a plastic sleeve. Everything is then housed in an cleverly designed and unique card enclosure. Four triangular flaps open outwards to reveal the tights inside.

Material and features

Here is Aristoc's description of the 
Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights:

"A beautiful shine look on leg with a luxuriously soft handle."
These tights are made in Italy, which is usually a pointer to good quality.

The yarn used is 85% Polyamide and 15% Elastane. The gusset is made from Cotton.

As you take them from the packaging, you notice how light they feel and also how extraordinarily soft and silky they are.

They are completely sheer to waist, with no demarcation between the leg and the body.

As with other styles in the Ultimate range, the waistband has been designed to improve comfort levels. It measures 5.5cm.

The brief is commendably deep, and is 30cm from the top of the waistband to the breathable cotton gusset.

Toes are very lightly reinforced for added durability.

Seams are flat and well made. There is reinforcement either side of the central seam. The XL size has no rear comfort panel.

A further reflection of the quality and attention to detail in the Ultimate range, is an Aristoc tag sewn into the rear of the body. Good to see Aristoc providing this.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights are available in four sizes: 

  • Small 
  • Medium 
  • Large 
  • Extra Large 

I wore the Extra Large size.

They were easy to get on, with a nice amount of stretch.

Fit on the leg was perfect, with no wrinkling. The Elastane content helps them to mould to the leg.

The 15 denier coverage is even throughout. It is dense enough to smooth out and hide any blemishes.

The brief was also comfortable with the waistband sitting nicely above the waist and hips.

There is, as expected, quite a noticeable shine to these tights but slightly less than I thought there would be.

Colour range

The Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights are available in two colours: Nude and Black.

I wore them in the Nude shade.

Price and availability

The Aristoc Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights are priced at £12.00.

They can be purchased directly from the Aristoc website.

The online retailer Tights Tights Tights also has them in stock.


This is our fourth review from the Aristoc Ultimate range and the quality of the tights in the collection is consistently high.

There is no exception with the Ultimate 15 Denier Shine Tights.

They feel good to wear, and being shiny will glide really well under trousers.

The price is very reasonable for the quality and the features.
