Body Wrappers totalSTRETCH footed tight features a no sag spandex, a no show knit-in waistband, and a dyed-to-match coolmax gusset. Wear them over or under your favorite leotard for dance class or recitals!
I don't know what these tights are made from, but they are indestructible. My daughter made it through a whole competition season with two pairs of these tights (multiple dances, multiple days of competition). We love the durability, and they just smooth everything out and look so nice on stage. I know the trend is not to wear tights at all, but I think it adds a level of professionalism to have everything tucked in and covered appropriately.
I was only able to wear the tights once.....ok technically twice. First time was to try on a new leo, second time was during the day today. I threw on my leo and tights under my work clothes (a. Its cold, b. no time between work and the start time for warm ups) by the time I got through with warm ups I had a run in the tights. That being said....the waist band is extremely comfortable, and the seam at the toes felt comfortable after about 8 hours of wear.
I'm 5'2", 125 lbs and I ordered the S/M size. The size is perfect. They are comfortable tights and the elastic at the waist does not pinch, nor is it too tight. They do have a bit of a snag in them after one class but they are tights...so it goes.
I don't like the capezio stretch and hold tights because they have so much spandex they feel too tight and uncomfortable
can you tell me the amount of spandex in the other footed tights
The Capezio tights and these Body Wrappers tights have the same material makeup. They are both 88% nylon and 12% spandex. The Body Wrappers tights though are made of a supplex nylon so they will be slightly softer. - DDS Customer Service (08/01/2013)
