Review Nude Barre
I got both the fishnets and the opaque tights in tapioca cream. I’m 5’2″ with a large body frame and I got a size M/L in the fishnets and L/XL in the opaque tights. They are a bit big, but I do suggest picking a larger size so you can tuck them into your bra band for a smoother look. I really love the fishnets. Today I was scolded by a friend for not dressing warmly enough even though I was wearing the fishnet tights (I assume she thought I was going bare-legged when it was 45 degrees Fahrenheit and windy, nope ; -) The opaque tights are good too, but I do recommend washing them once before wear. They come with a bit of extra orange/yellow dye in them. After the first wash, the color is more brown. The tights don’t “run” even when they get caught on something, just lose threads. Beware of Velcro (aka my backpack) or anything else that may hook onto your tights. If you’re not a dancer, I say buy the fishnets since they match better color-wise.
Nude Barre is my go to hosiery brand as it has everything. I splurged on the crystallized opaque tights which are insanely expensive. They were really pretty but a bit different to what I was expecting. Also the Tapioca Cream was way lighter than I expected though I think maybe I got sent the wrong pair. Overall, great options for darker skin women and children.
