These Allen Bodywear footless tights are my preferred tights for pretty much everything -- ballet classes, workouts, home/leisure wear and even as insulation under jeans in cold weather. I've found them to be well-made, comfortable and durable. I put mine through a lot and they've always held up really well. The material is a bit thicker than with some tights, which makes them less sheer and somewhat less form-fitting, but they still look and perform great. They seem to run slightly long (and I'm fairly tall), but it isn't a problem to just fold them under at the ankles -- they look fine that way. They're my standard tights for ballet since they're so sturdy and comfortable and the footless design enables me to wear my slippers barefoot, which I like. So, I highly recommend them to anyone looking for some durable and versatile tights. They definitely won't disappoint!
The sizing information for this product was confusing to me. Because the waist sizes were all very small, I assumed they were sized for young adults and/or women. I have a size 29 waist and ordered according to the recommendations which chart that an XL. Well, of course they came and are way too large for me. Now I am stuck with a $27.00 pair of tights that can't be returned or worn. I'm very upset and disappointed.
I would completely, 100% recommend this product!!! It's the best one I have tried...and I have tried just about 10-15. So, definitely add this to your cart and buy it right away....it's worth it! You can wear them in a recital, in class, or even when it's cold under your jeans!!! They are the best :-)
I had purchased some footless tights for my daughter somewhere else and they were too long or she was too thin for them. I then purchased these from Discount Dance and they fit just perfect! They aren't too loose and she has just enough room to grow in length.
