As you know, I am a huge proponent of opaque tights. I hate when I can see skin through my tights. I’ve even been known to wear two pair of tights just to achieve the ultimate level of opacity. But not anymore.
Last week, a friend in Colorado recommended Commando Ultimate Matte Opaque Tights ($34). So I decided to give them a whirl…and boy, am I glad that I did.Not only are these tights the blackest pair I have ever seen, they’re also the most comfortable tights that I have ever worn.
Unlike most tights that have a one inch waistband that folds and rolls when you move around, these tights have a wide, seamless jersey waistband. This allows you to move freely without having to run to the restroom to flatten the seam on your tights every five minutes.
Yes, $34 is a lot to spend on tights. But these, in my opinion, are totally worth it. They’re unbelieveably black and they’re incredibly comfortable.
However, if $34 is still too rich for your blood, Hue Super Opaque Tights are a good substitute at just $14. You can also find them at Macy’s and Filene’s for 2 for $20.
