I have got my hands on another pair of DIM tights, and I am hoping these are a lot better than my last pair. As these are a thicker denier pair, I hope that they was they have been made will be a lot smoother and damage-free!

I’m prepping for the cooler days here, so I wore my tunic with a simple belt with this pair. I also added my mid heel mules just to change it up a little rom my court shoes.

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll to begin with, and I will say as I was scrunching them down ready to roll on – they did feel slightly tight. I still managed to get them on, and roll them up with ease once I got past my anklets.
On The Legs: so from afar, these look super smooth and really soft. But when you come up close, that’s where you get to see the little defects in them. The first I saw were snags that I know I did not create as I was super careful getting them on. The second was the rings and lines you see around the thighs and some on the lower leg. I have no idea why they do this, but it is super frustrating as I just want a smooth looking pair that does its job! I feel like I need to get in touch with the company and ask them.
The quality lacked for me, and I really wish it was better than this. They can snag very easily as I managed to get one minutes after I got them on (whether that was there before or I managed to do it somehow). To be honest, based on this wear I don’t see these lasting me a few wears. Harsh I know, but I am not impressed here.
The fit was good. These fit me really well and I had a nice amount of stretch to them to get even (enough) coverage from feet to thighs. These shaped nicely to the legs, so there was no gapping to be found.
The feel of them were super smooth and really lovely to be in. They had a lovely smooth finish to them, as my tunic would glide past them rather than rub past. They also didn’t irritate the skin either, so I am happy about that. They were comfortable enough to wear all day long.
I’ll mention the control top part here as this is where I have placed the images; I did feel they were tight at first but then you get used to it when you start moving in them. They are a medium control in my opinion, which I quite liked. I was still able to move freely without feeling restricted like you can get with some pairs, and they became comfortable as my day went on.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, which are quite small. I expected them to be a little larger in coverage, but these practically just cover the nails. I don’t mind it, but it limits open toe footwear as this would peer out.
I did have plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added either during the day.
Around the feet and ankles, there was no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: okay so this waistband is different from others. It’s not just a band, but one with ribbing in. I believe this gives a more comfortable fit, and to be honest it really did. I loved the waistband as it fit me well, and it stayed in place all day without any issues. There was a nice amount of stretch in them so it wasn’t squeezing your waist in the process, and I believe the ribbing on the sides helped that.
The gusset sits flush against the skin once the tights are set in place. I didn’t have any issues with the gusset here.
Another pair that I am not keen on. I didn’t like the quality of them unfortunately, but I do like the way they feel and how they look from afar.
