    Great Simple Tights

    by: Bway19 - 09/28/2015

    Amazingly soft and comfortable! The waistband is snug (like all Capezio tights) but I don't mind it. The hole for transition is a bit interesting. Overall they do their job!

    I much prefer Gaynor Minden tights

    These tights are very similar to Gaynor Minden's tights, but they run a lot easier. Super soft, super comfy, awesome waistband, just not as good as Gaynor.

    My tights turned blue!!!

    Durability: 1 star rating

    When i first got these in the mail i was super excited they were soft and when i tried them with my new leotard it was perfect. There was a hole on the leg after less than 2 minutes. I kept them because the seemed nice After 3 washes they were nearly white also the ankle and foot area was an unusual BLUE-GREEN. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Soft, smooth, and you can feel the floor

    by: Rubieee - 04/28/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I purchased this product for my stage performance. Wearing Capezio Transition Tights (#1816) for more than two years, I was satisfied with the product yet wanted to try something new as the 1816 tights (old version) had a bit tight elastic waistband which tends to show a line on the leotard. These tights have a soft knitted waistband which solved the problem! The fabric is softer and thinner than 1816. Taking out these new pairs of tights from a package in the evening before the performance day, I panicked first because I didn't comprehend the structure of this tights -- it looked like tights with a wide open toe. Looking closely, I noticed there is a toe pocket which allows a hole to be placed under your foot. You have to stretch really well to flatten the fabric around a hole; however, the fabric was unnoticeable once I put a ballet slipper on and doing the barre. Actually, this tights shocked me in a very nice way once I started moving – I could feel the floor much better, and my foot did not slip inside of my ballet slipper at all though it was a brand new pair in a brand new ballet slipper. I could survive two shows very comfortably because I just felt really good! More delicate than #1816, this tights may not last as long as the 1816; but, I definitely stick with this one from now on! Also, I should add that the ballet pink color of this tights is beautiful.

    Really comfy tights. I love that there are no toe seams so they are more comfortable to wear with pointe shoes. I've had a couple of pairs that lasted over a year before getting runs in them, and I wear them 4 days a week. I also like that they can be worn as footless tights.

    These tights are super comfy. The waist band doesn't dig into me like most tights. You can hardly tell you're wearing tights! I've had these for six months and there are hardly any runs in them. That is a record for me. These are definately your best choice for tights.

    I love these tights! They're the only capezio tights that I buy all the time. The microfiber knit is incredibly soft, they have yet to run, and the toe hole is perfect for pointe dancers. Some people may find the toe holes too baggy, but to me they're hardly noticeable at all, and they're very easy to roll up once it's time for pointe. Now the toe hole can be really hard to navigate at first if you have no clue how these work, it looks like a pair of footless tights. I know when I first recieved these I panicked when I couldn't figure out what to do with them. All you have to do is take the toe pocket on these tights (which is very obvious to find), and pull them all the way over your toes, until the hole is under your foot instead of straight on top.

    these tights are so soft and comfy, and they are actually really slimming. They make my legs look thin in my opinion. The ballet pink is a really nice color as well. I'd recommend them to anyone!

    These tights are awesome! I've only worn them once but they are so comfy and stretchy!! They are also a nice ballet pink. All other tights that I've owned were a much lighter pink that is not as visible.

    Soft, stretchy and not uncomfortable like most tights! Also, the hole is extremely sturdy and seamed around, so the foot part looks nice on your feet. They also last a while and don't get runs easily, so buy em while they're cheap! (: Haha.

    I wear these tights every year for the recital. I get one pair in pink and one that is tan. They don't rip easily(in fact I have one pair from four years ago that I wear to class every week). A great buy! Wonderful for jazz and ballet because you can switch between the two.

    I love these tights! The quality is good, and the ballet pink color is beautiful. I am five one and a half and around 115 pounds, and the small/medium fit really well. The foot hole is a little bit different than other convertible tights I've had, but I really like it. Also, the reinforced toe pocked is great. I don't feel like I'm always going to rip a hole in them when I pull them over my feet!

    I am 5'2" and 105lbs and the small in these tights fit perfectly. They are not too tight around the waist. However, the hole at the bottom is located in such a manner that it fits like a hole for the toes as opposed to a hole at the bottom of the foot. The part of the tights where the heel is supposed to sit is on the opposite side from where the tag is in the waist of the tights. I haven't read any reviews that say anything similar to this - so I must have got a defective pair - but because I wear them as footless, and they are great other than that - I decided to keep them. They are that nice.

    I love everything about these tights! I don't even want to order any other kind. These are great. I have a problem getting tights to fit without being see through. These are great. I'm 5'8" and they fit my long legs. Close up they look a funny color, but from about 10ft+ away you can't even tell that they are there (in light suntan). The opening doesn't cut off circulation when I put it on my calf, and they are just overall great. I would definitely order them again and recommend them to everyone!

    These tights are a good addition to my dance wardrobe. I enjoy the knit non-roll waistband. They are listed as low-rise, but on a short body (5'2") they fit like a regular rise, which I prefer. The transition opening is nice and durable. It does take some getting used to the knit toe re-enforcement. The toe/foot fits slightly differently from traditional tights.

    These are really soft and stretchy. They keep their color even when you just wash them with all your other clothes. They're so much better than the Danskin tights for me.

    The only reason I was generous enough to give a 2 was the softness. I wore these to Nutcracker, and by the end of the show, I had these tiny little holes up the front of my legs. They weren't even runs, just snads. And my costume was spandex, so that's not what ripped them! I hated these tights. They made me run to the local dance shop on lunch break to buy overpriced replacements. VERY UNHAPPY!

    I have had the same pair of pink tights for about 7 months. They are just starting to get very small runs in them. They are super soft and comfy. The perfect color. The only problem is after about 4 months, they start getting little balls stuck to them. Perfect for any type of dance.

    OK, so I was looking for a pair of tights that don't run as much as Body Wrappers, aren't as itchy as Capezios, and aren't as tight as Bloch. So I read the reviews and tried these. I was disappointed. The hole like didn't fit right and whenever I pointed my foot, it curled up and balled up under my foot. But they were really soft and they worked fine if you rolled up the tights. But for ballet and pointe I like my tights to cover my toes, and I couldn't wear these for ballet. So even though I really can't use them unless I don't have ballet, they were really comfy.

    After trial and error with several other tights, I tried these on a whim. I love the softness and the comfort. They're not too warm either, considering the fabric. The toe-opening doesn't feel weird in ballet slippers or pointe shoes like some other transition tights. These are the only tights I will buy again!

  • Is the waistband on these tights an elastic or just elasticized fabric?

    by: Christina (10/16/2012 - San Luis Obispo, Ca, Usa) Age: 18 to 24

    I often make the mistake of ordering tights that have a constricting elastic waistband. My favorite capezio tights have waistbands that are just the same material as the rest of the tight, just slightly more elasticized. Is that what these are? Please let me know!

    The waistband of this tight is a soft knit not an elastic waistband
    - DDS Customer Service (10/18/2012)

    This one comes with a knitted elasticized waistband which looks like a reinforced tights fabric -- not a hard, thick, tight elastic waistband -- which helps not to show a line on the leotard. - Rubieee (04/29/2013)
