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.
Taking payments and not shipping product – I ordered a pair of XL Toasted Almond footed tights back on Dec. 14 2017 and still have not received them. I have tried contacting Shades of Dance multiple times through their “contact us” page on their website and have not been contacted by anyone. $18.40 for tights and shipping and over one month later, I’ve received no product. If you look at the posts on their FB page, they are all negitive.
I’ve had the diamond fishnets for about a year now. Granted I only bring them out for special occasions, but they are pretty sturdy and have lasted for ages.
