They are more sheer than I was looking for. But the waistband is great and they feel nice.
I've worn Body Wrappers stirrup tights, Gaynor Minden stirrups, and Bloch Endura footless on days when I wear black tights to adult ballet class. But I wanted to try something new. These footless black tights have held up over several wearings and washings. They have comfy non-cinch waistband. And I like the matte semi-opaque finish on them. I would buy these again.
I am almost 5'7", size 2 pants. L/XL fits well.
...I like these tights, but I barely had them on in the studio when I noticed that there was a run from the crotch seam. So not very durable for me, and too expensive to replace daily. I won't be ordering these again. I will say the stretch was great and the waist was perfect because it was made from the same fabric as the tight instead of elastic.
The Eurotard Adult Footless tights are fantastic. They are made of a material that looks great on the legs, has lots of stretch, and is extremely dense and durable. All of this, and they still are breathable. Plus the waistband is not made of a heavy elastic that gives you a tight mark. The waist is made of the same material as the rest of the tight but has a slightly higher density. So, the waist is secure and stretchy, while not creating an unflattering tight line. Also, these tights are easy to keep clean in class because any foot marks left on the knee etc. can be very easily just brushed off. The crotch of this this tight is completely black(my tights are black) not white so it is not ackward to wear them over a leotard. Finally, the bottoms of the footless tights are very durable because of the small (and soft) band. It prevents tears, but doesn't cut off circulation. Overall, I am very pleased with my Eurotard Adult Footless Tights. In fact, I just wore them to an audition a few days ago. They are wonderful!!!
