Kat’s Thoughts: 

These tights are simply *the* gold standard that I measure all other tights up to – if I’m brutally honest.  Body Wrappers is doing a really good job of adding new colors to fill in “color gaps” that exist in their line.  Cappucino (CAP), Dark Nude (DKN), and Espresso (ESP) were all being added this fall 2017 (Child S/M (4-7) all the way to 3X/4X in plus sizes).

The tight itself feels amazing both in the package and on the leg!  It’s easy and smooth to get on and has some extra “flex” in sizing.  I’m 5’3 and can do either the Adult SM or the LXL. I, personally, prefer the LXL only because I don’t like the “cut in” on any tight (yep – I like my tights a little looser for my own comfort – BUT that is my personal preference).  But I can also wear the S/M without too much trouble.  I like that the waistband is durably sewn in on the tight. I know that some folks cut out the waistbands from old tights and use it for other purposes – having it sewn in makes the elastic more durable and easy to remove.  It’s all about structural integrity 🙂

The only time I’ve had/seen an issue with this tight is with extreme latex allergies (it’s actually a problem with all tights since latex is in tights).  Where the waistband is sewn in to the tight – has caused irritation in the past.  Luckily – this isn’t the case with 99% of people and easily solved (they switched to the “sister” A80 tight which has a knit in “self” waistband and minimized their exposure).

 

 

Sizing Info:  Follow the size charts.  If you’re borderline (even by a few dots) – you may want to go up to the next size for your comfort.

Other Notes:  Body Wrappers tends to keep these well stocked.  It doesn’t hurt that they make their tights here in the USA.  So usually – backlogs are fairly short (and they do have complementing styles if time is absolutely of the essence – check out the C80/A80 line for those).

*A note about prices – while the MSRP is listed – it is just that.  Please remember that your local dance store also has to cover shipping costs, lights, rent, other utilities, and oh yeah – HUMANS!  When you go into a local dance store – please realize that you are possibly paying a premium for their expertise, knowledge, and having (most) products there on hand.  That’s not cheap.  Please don’t go “window shopping” there only to save a few bucks.  Especially on products under $100, it’s really not worth it.  Support your local store. Please.  When you do, you validate why we have physical stores and why we, as store owners, dedicate ourselves to providing you with products and knowledge we can stand behind.
