Rated 4 out of 5 by csrussian53 Nice Tights
I've been buying LE tights for many years. It's been years since I bought new ones because they last so long, but finally I needed them...the only thing wrong with the old ones were that they were so stretched out they wouldn't stay up and they sagged (after about 10 years!!). The new ones are not the same as the olds ones...they're not bad, and I am keeping them and wearing them, but, the feet are quite big(!!) and the legs get twisted if you're not careful. The legs on one pair were so twisted I returned them. The others are fine as long as I carefully pull each leg over my feet and legs, making sure not to twist them. They give good tummy support (On me, the waist reaches just under my bust, so I fold it down so that they fit low - around 2" below my waist. So far, so good - the "waist" stays put even after a long day into evening. If these "new" LE tights last half as long as the older version, I'll be completely satisfied!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Venice05 Well-made but definitely not "matte"
I purchased three pairs of these tights in brown, black, and navy, but was surprised to see that all three had a sheen to them in spite of them being described as "matte." The older matte tights did not have this sheen. Because they're very well-made, I'm not going to return them, but will likely only wear them when covered by tall boots and longer skirts. That's only my personal taste, though, so if you don't mind tights with a sheen, don't hestiate to purchase them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cobbmom The perfect tights
I've ordered these before and wore them until I needed new ones. I 've tried other brands, but like Lands End tights the best. I ordered brown and black and wear them almost daily during the fall and winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJMerriman These tights are perfect!. They are well made!
I ordered a "medium" and the fit is perfect. I am trying to support "American" made and these live up to the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VicarsWife Really nice fit!
These tights fit just right, smooth on the legs and with a comfortable waist. No annoying feeling that you need to pull them up every 10 minutes! They are also a nice weight, genuine tights but very slightly sheer and not too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HuleeTheDane True to Size Chart
Finally, a size chart that is accurate. At nearly 5'11" and 173 pounds and a size 12M shoe (yes, a Viking Dane), I rarely get hosiery to fit if I follow the size chart guide. They are usually too small because my proportions are on the far side of both height and weight, and don't forget that the foot takes up extra length too. Thank you Lands' End for accurate sizing. They are a perfect fit and the quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alpin50 A very satisfactory deal
The fit is excellent and these tights are of high quality and met my expectations in that regard. I bought them for everyday wear in the cooler autumn and winter days ahead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TJanke Good Product. But Why Only Good?
Because there is no black available!!! I have been trying for TWO YEARS to purchase these tights to replace my now-shabby pairs. But never can I find them available in my size (2X) in black. Please, Lands End. This is ridiculous. I settled last year for the nasty shiny tights you offer, but a plus-sized woman in shiny black tights is a pitiful sight. Yes, your blurb says they have a "slight sheen," but your idea of "slight" is overly generous. I threw them into the "donation" pile yesterday -- still quite wearable, still quite hideous -- when I purged my dresser and closet of all things worn out or useless. LE, will you please do something about getting these Control Matte Plus Size Tights in Black? Seriously, either your supplier careless or your buyers have lost their minds. And LE is missing sales. Big Time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kehn The best tights ever!
I came to landsend.com today to check on whether these tights were available in black again, as they have not been for the last few months. These are the best quality tights you can buy, and also happen to be extremely comfortable. I wear these to work at least 4 days a week, they are so flattering and durable that they've become a staple of my wardrobe. I ordered the 2X, but would have liked to have the 3X available. Land's End, please DO NOT discontinue your amazing black tights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimChipmonk My daughter wears these almost every day
My daughter wears these to school almost every day, they fit as the size chart indicates and look great with her black skirts. She is a petite 5'4" with a full-legged hourglass figure and these tights with a skirt are a great alternative to the skinny legged jeans that are everywhere. We will continue to purchase them.
