My two dancers are SO picky about tights, and they HATE toe seams. When it was time for dance class, my oldest would dread getting ready because of the simple fact she disliked the feel of her tights. We tried multiple brands and styles, but this is the first that is comfortable from waist to toe. My oldest prefers to wear hers backwards, with her toes out of the opening, and the "toe" area at the sole of her feet. My youngest wears them as intended. Both girls are very happy. I do think these tights run small, I bought the child size for my 5 year-old and the adult small/medium for my almost 9 year-old, and those fit great. I will be placing another order to stock up on these. Thank you!
