Rated 2 out of 5 by Clepington Seriously undersized at the moment
I notice that these are at a low stock level so, presumably, we'll soon see a replacement with the sizing problem fixed. Unlike the 30 and 60 denier tights in this range, the 40s are seriously short in both the leg and the pant. The result is that within minutes the gusset has descended halfway to your knees and the waistband is below the level of even bikini knickers. I thought this was a one off until today when I spent a very uncomfortable morning for the second time and went 'tightless' for the afternoon. Anyone wearing a short skirt would be very embarrassed. Until this is fixed - and I'd suggest M&S announce when it is - my recommendation would be to avoid the 40 denier opaques for now unless you're quite small when a large might fit you.
One definite plus point. All the weights in this range have a tag in the back showing the denier rating - makes it so much easier to select what you're after from the tights drawer while still bleary-eyed in the morning. Simple but so sensible!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Clar Terrible fit
I have worn M&S tights for years but these do not fit very well. They keep falling down and are very uncomfortable. I am very disappointed. The colours are lovely and are just what I wanted but the elastic in the waistband isn't good,

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mooch07 Misleading
Wanted grey/charcoal tights for work, received then to realise that only one pair of tights was infact charcoal, the others were brown and black. I thought I was buying a three pack of charcoal mix (three different shades of grey). The picture on the website is very miss-leading. Sent them back.

I love the purple colour in this mixed pack but I don't always want the black and grey pair. Any chance M and S of being able to buy the purple on its own?

Rated 4 out of 5 by wickedqueen Nice colour and fit is good
These tights are a good colour and thickness and just fit. I wouldn't want them any smaller - I am 5' 10" and a size 16. They were certainly confortable to wear and not too hot or cold.
