Reviewed: Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights

UK Tights provide amazing support for this blog. We are really grateful for all the samples they send for Hosiery For Men to trial and review.

They recently sent us the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights to trial and review.

We have previously reviewed several Pamela Mann styles on the blog:

Pamela Mann 50 Denier Recycled Yarn Tights

Pamela Mann 90 Denier Curvy Super-Stretch Tights

Pamela Mann 120 Denier 3D Plus Size Opaque Tights

Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Black Opaque Tights

Pamela Mann Diamond Opaque Tights

Let's now assess the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights.


Packaging is very simple indeed. The tights are held in place in a basic card clasp.

Material and features

The Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights are made in Italy from 93% Nylon and 7% Elastane.

The feel is soft and smooth.

The brief measures 23cm from the top of the waistband to the crotch. Seams are conventional and not flat. There is no gusset.

The waistband is 4cm wide.

Toes are reinforced.

Colour options

Pamela Mann also makes these 80 denier tights available in three other colours:

  • Black
  • Burgundy
  • Slate

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights are currently available from UK Tights in two sizes: One Size and UK 16-18. I trialled them in the 16-18 size.

The size chart suggests that the UK 16-18 size accommodates heights of up to 5'7". However I found these tights had really good stretch and elasticity. They were a comfortable fit for my 5'10" height.

Opacity is even and pretty much total. Appearance is mainly matte with very little shine.

The tights are very soft to wear. Insulation was good also on a cool day.

The Elastane content gave a lovely fit on the leg with no wrinkling or sagging.

Although the brief seems quite shallow, compared to the brief on Pamela Mann's plus size opaques, it stretched easily over the waist and hips.

Wearing experience was good overall, as the yarn used is excellent quality.

Price and availability

At UK Tights the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Navy Opaque Tights are priced at £6.99.


For just £6.99 these tights are something of a bargain. There are no premium features: no flat seams and no gusset. Apart from this the quality is very good indeed and they are well-made, comfortable tights.

Excellent value for money.
