My daughter hates tights that squeeze too hard at her waist. It makes her self conscience. But she also wanted tights that felt tight and supportive all over as well. She LOVES these tights. She feels they support her and the waist doesn't squeeze at all. These seem to run the same size as all other tights she has worn as well.
I appreciate Gaynor Minden for making colored tights for African-American and Black dancers.
I am giving this four stars because the espresso color is less brown and more cartoon eggplant or purple colored. I would qualify myself as being more dark-skinned and I love that I can nicely complete the lines of my body all the way to my feet.
In the future, I will get the cappuccino color, which I think is slightly lighter. Hopefully it is less purple.
These are the most comfortable tights you can get. I hate how tights suffocate you at the waist. Gaynor tights are the only ones that I know of that don't do that. I've had my tights for about six months now and I would say they are plenty durable as well. One "down side" is the color. There isn't a classic pink color that is offered in pretty much any other brand. But I would argue that this color, I ordered the light pink (which is more of a peach color), blends in with the color of shoes better. I love how the tights look uniform with my Gaynor pointe shoes and So Danca flats.
The quality and design of Gaynor Minden tights is really unbeatable! Gaynor's the only brand of tights i will get online at the moment because I know the quality will be good and they will last me a long time. My only issue is that I once accidentally got pink instead of light pink and was shocked by the color! It is a very bright orange-y pink that i couldn't use at recital for fear of standing out too much. All in all great tights, I just need to check what color I'm getting.
