    These tights are absolutely my favorite! I bought these tights because a friend recommended them to me and I LOVE them! They are soo comfortable and the knit waistband is not only comfy but, also doesn't show through your leotard! I love the feel of these tights and the convertible feature is great...it makes it so easy to quickly change from flat to pointe. I bought the smallmedium tights and they fit great. I am 5 feet 4 inches and the length is exactly where I want it. These tights are the best!

  • Wonderful tights but expensive

    by: Motherof2Dancers - 02/25/2016

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These tights have a wonderful waistband -- so super comfortable -- the best I've ever seen. They are well made and the material is soft and a bit thicker than some of the cheaper brands. They have stood up well to my daughter (age 11) dancing 3 days a week, 2 to 3 hours each day. She has 3 pairs and has been wearing them for 8 months with no tears or runs in any of them. I would recommend ordering at least 1 size larger than the recommended size based on your height and weight though. No complaints on these except they are expensive.

  • AMAZING tights

    by: TinyDancer06 - 02/11/2016

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I bought the normal Capezio tights first, but the waistband was SO tight and I kept having to cut it off, so I tried these. I LOVE them. These are the only tights I wear. I have them in all 3 colors and they are great. The waist band is perfect and even better you can't see the waist band through my leotards.

    With the addition of the self knit waistband, these are the most comfortable pair of tights I have. As others mentioned, in the packaging the tights look much pinker than they do on, so no need to worry!

    Yes, the ballet pink looks pepto bismally in the package but once on it is a softer pink. Other than that, tights are perfect!

    I love the self knit waistband. It is much more comfortable than elastic and does not show a line under your leotard like elastic does. I don't buy any other brands or styles. These are my favorite!

    Durability:

    These tights are very soft and comfortable and feel like good quality. I can never go back to non-dance tights ever again. So far they've held up to some abuse -- just one time though, one of the tights had a loose thread but I easily cut it off. But it didn't stop me from binge-purchasing 4 more pairs!

  • "Ballet Pink" is darker than most

    by: ReluctantBalletMom - 11/03/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These are great tights. The reason I'm giving them a 4 instead of a 5 is for the color. Anyone in ballet knows that pink is pink and ballet pink is VERY light, almost ivory with pink overtones. The tights I was sent seem more pink than ballet pink. This is the first time I've ordered the capezios, so I'm not sure if they just run darker, or if someone stuffed pink tights into a ballet pink package by mistake. They are a good shade darker than the Balera version. Anyway, just wanted to toss that out for any dancers with very persnickety teachers... A note on sizing, the package gives a fairly wide range of heights/weights that the tights are for, but I would err on the size of caution. My 11 year old is in the upper left hand corner (the smallest/slimmest range of the tights) at 5 ft and 86 pounds. If you are in the larger half of the range (say 5' 3" and 105 lbs and up) I would probably buy the next size up, though I'm not sure because I don't know how big that size is.

  • Perfect

    by: AnnaCarrie - 10/24/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I usually buy the regular capezio transition tights but grabbed these on a trip to the dance store and after my first class with them ordered more and told my friends about them. They seem darker at first but once you put them on they match the regular tights. They fit the same but the waistband is much more comfortable and doesn't make any lines under my leos.

  • Comfortable Tights

    by: 3Dancers - 10/01/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    We purchased the Capezio self knit waistband tights online. My daughter normally wears tights with elastic waist bands. She has worn Body Wrappers, Capezio and Bloch tights. This new pair is her favorite now. She likes them very much. The only difference we noticed is that the pink is a darker pink than her older Capezio tights. Other than that they are great.

  • So comfortable and size off the chart wa

    by: Sailor - 09/09/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I Have had to cut the waistband of many tights so they wouldn't be so tight, uncomfortable, and leave bulges around my waist while wearing my leotards. I never would have thought a pair of tights could make that big a difference in overall feel and appearance, but these definately did. I will be telling my friends at my studio about them for sure.

  • My favorite pair of tights!!!

    by: Mackenzieh3 - 08/27/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I absolutely love these tights! I have been wearing Capezio tights for years and found these last year on DDS and decided to order a pair. They are just like the traditional capezio super soft tights however they don't have that horrible elastic waist band. The waist on these is the same material as the rest of the tights, just slightly thicker. They are perfect for wearing under low back leotards because you can wear them lower on your waist and not have those horrible lines from normal tights, and they wont dig into you at all. When they arrive they are more of a salmon color but when you put them on they look more like the normal ballet pink. I still have one pair that I have worn for almost 8 months twice a week and they are still in great condition, but they do have a slightly blue tint in the upper thigh only because of the shorts I wear over my leos to class. The only thing that would make these better is if they had the back seam that is on the "professional tights". Other than that I love these! I am 5'8 and I ordered the L/XL because I like to wear mine higher up on my waist and they fit great!

  • Excellent!

    by: Jeyar - 07/09/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My daughter has been wearing capezio tights for years, but we just discovered these. She absolutely loves the waistband on them, it is such an improvement over the regular kind! Super comfortable, invisible under her leotard, and not digging into her waist. For reference, she is10, almost 5 ft tall, and weighing about 90 lbs I think. The S/M fits great!

  • Very Pink but Super Comfortable

    by: MommyOnPointe - 01/08/2015

    Comfort:

    At first glance, I was a little put off by the intense Pepto-Bismal-Pink shade, but once the tights are on, the color is much lighter and rather pleasant. The waistband is by far the best feature - it's wide and non-constricting, which makes it both comfortable and flattering when worn either under or over a leotard. Love it.

  • Long lasting tights

    Durability:

    My 12 year old daughter has had these for 6 months now, and the still look like they are in new condition. She is usually hard on tights,and somer brands of tights rip the first time she puts them on. She likes how the waistband can't be seen under her leotard, and it is soft and comfortable.

  • Best Tights

    by: willplieforpizza - 11/16/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These are my favorite tights, they're just like the Capezio Ultra-Soft tights except the waist band is comfortable and doesn't dig in. They are really soft and durable, I've had mine for about a year and they haven't gotten a single hole in them. They do run a little small, so if you have long legs like I do, make sure you get a large/extra large. The only problem I have with them is that they don't come in light pink, the ballet pink is a little bright.

  • Comfortable

    by: momto2 - 09/15/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My girls loved these tights! Especially the waistband. it's not the 1" elastic band that is really tight. It's the knit soft one and it's totally a different feel when it comes to comfort. The last 10 pairs that we ordered were in the child LG size in capezio and the waste band was never comfortable. My girls don't meet all the weight and height measurements on the sizing chart for these adult tights, however they fit well and are comfortable. They have room to grow, but they do not sag or bag anywhere. They are both 52 " tall while one is at 68 lbs and the other is at 83 lbs. Still both like the way they fit and feel especially.

  • New favorite tights!!!!!

    by: DanceObsession - 04/22/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I ordered these tights a few weeks ago, and I am in love!!!! These are the COMFIEST tights I have EVER boughten- THAT'S saying something, because I've been dancing for 10 years!!!! There hasn't been a SINGLE snag so far, even though I dance ballet and contemporary 60 hours/week. This is an absolute STEAL, because it is extremely durable fabric for a cheap price, AND these tights are SUPER comfy. I live in Phoenix, AZ, so the flat-rate shipping ($2.50# mailed these to me in a day! So, these tights were cheaper than my last pair, which weren't that comfy #who wants to pay $27 at their local dance store?). INCREDIBLY PLEASED!!!!!!

  • New favorite tights!

    by: GradStudent - 04/05/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These are my new favorite tights! Here's why: - The waistband is SUPER comfortable! - They do not squeeze or create a visible line under a leotard. - The ballet pink color is just right (subtle but not washed out). - The material seems substantial (like other Capezio tights). I really disliked the older Capezio Ultra Soft tights because of the uncomfortable elastic waistband, but these are so comfortable that I didn't think about them a single time during class. Very happy customer here! :)
