    These are comfortable and fit well, and I like the opacity. However, the first time I transitioned from footed to footless modes, stretching around the opening created a run that ran past my heel. I shouldn't have to pull out the nail polish on the first wear... not a good sign. Will not buy again.

    Bought these yesterday and wore them to rehearsal the same day. They got a hole in the heel practically as soon as I put them on and it ran up the ankle. The convertible part is a great feature but the hole is too small. As I tried to pull them around my rather large feet, they ripped some more and started to run. The waistband is also quite tight. After a few hours I was pulling them them up quite a bit to avoid it digging into my stomach any longer. After I got home, I tried cutting the waistband to loosen it and again, they started to run. I hate to think what would happen during a performance and getting a snag. What I do like about them is their softness and the color of the light tan, but I am going to continue looking for a different low rise option.

    My daughter is 13, has been dancing for 10 years. These are the best tights,low rise, silicone waist band keeps them from slipping down. She loves them. They are long lasting. She dances 20 hours a week. We have a few pairs of each color to last all week long. My daughter is skinny and these do not pinch at all. I think they would work well for all body types,they will not roll down.

    My daughter told me she loved these tights but failed to tell me all the waistbands were ripping out. The tights are running very small in the waist only.

    I LOVE these tights! By far the best I've ever owned. They cover my legs completely, and that's really something I needed. The only problem I had was that the hole on the bottom of the foot was too small, but I cut it just slightly at the seam, and it didn't run at all.

    I have tried about every brand of tights there are. These are not only durable (I have a couple pairs that have lasted years) but very stretchy, comfortable, and not baggy. I won't buy any other brand now.

    No problem with them at all. I have had mine for a year and wear them 2 times a week and one tiny hole. I love them. I am about 2 buy 3 more.

    These tights are very flexible and comfortable and they last very well. I've had them for almost 9 months and wear them once a week and they haven't ripped yet. I find the elastic band around the top quite helpful because it helps keep them up, unlike most tights I've tried. It's rubbery like silicone inside the elastic band and stays put on my waist. I have size B and am 5'4" and 115 pounds and when I got them I was much smaller since I've grown a lot - so they grow with you.

    I really liked the cut of these tights, they rest right on your hips and are very comfortable there. But after having worn them for only an hour, they had already pulled and had a huge run in them! The holes in the feet are also very small. I went to roll up my tights and had to rip the holes bigger to get them up. I will not be buying these again, They just don't last.

    These tights are really great! I've had them for two years and they just now got a run in them. I really like the elastic at the top. It makes them feel really secure!

    These tights are really good if you don't want to look like you have a Barbie waist. The tights are cut in a "v" at the front so your stomach looks natural. The regular Bloch tights are ugly. I totally recommend these!!!!

    These are good in the beginning but after many washings, the elastic on the waistband starts peeling. The waistband is also very tight and leaves a mark on my hips. Other than that, they are okay.

    These are the closest color match to Light Euro Pink pointe shoes (i.e., Grishko, Russian Pointe). The color does fade if washed in normal detergent, but I've found that washing them in Woolite or the like helps to prevent this as much as possible. They really do rest nicely on the hips, as opposed to some other brands that claim to do so but wind up too high or too low. But I don't care much for the waistband at all; it stays put, I'll give it that, but it's not soft and comfortable like Capezio or GM. I used to think these were soft too, but compared to GM and Grishko Super Soft, they're not.

    These are great tights! The waistband stays on my hips and they feel like they won't fall down. The light tan is as close as it gets to my Swedish skin color unfortunately, but everything else makes up for the color. Every dancer should own these tights.

    I have 4 pairs of these tights and I wear them for almost every class. They can get holes, but if you're as big of a run-freak as I am, you can just put some clear nail-polish on and they will stay.

    These are my ALL TIME favourite tights. I have worn these for over 4 years and my original pair are still in great shape, despite being worn twice every week! The silicon top is fabulous and does not 'rollover' like the Capezios. I only wish that DDS would stock the colour 'salmon', as I prefer that Bloch tight colour to the lighter 'pink'.
