15 Denier Matt Brazilian Shaping Tights
Poor fit and poor value for money
I found these tights to be a very poor fit. I am fairly short and they were far too long in the body and due to the very tight waist band rolled over and created a ridge under my clothes. They did not even create a nice body shape for me in the hip and leg area where they were a little saggy. I bought them for a special occasion and they looked so awful under the dress I was intending to wear that I had to take them off and put them back into the package. At £8 they were very expensive.

I have to say I and my wife love the look of these tights. The Brazilian shape makes them look very different. They are lovely and soft with a nice sheen. We will be buying more. I guess a question of personal taste. But they do look lovely on!

Not Flattering and not shaping
Religious to M&S shaping tights for around 15 years now, these are not shaping or controlling at all. They are sold as 15 denier but the packet says 10 denier and they are more like a 10 denier. Whilst the picture gives the impression they are toning to the tummy, they simply are like a 100 denier Brazilian knicker shape at the top. The adjustable waistband does not work as described - if the waistband is moved a little off the waist then the tights become baggy and saggy. On the waist they are tight. A massive disappointment - I've thrown mine in the bin after 1 wear - I would have returned them solely on the basis they are not 15 denier as advertised but I only realised this as I began to pull them on and checked the packet - they became used then.
I agree with the previous reviewer - these do not have the feel and luxury of an £8 price tag - they feel exactly like a 10 denier non-shaping tight from a multi-pack.
Don't waste your money.

Not really "shaping" tights
Saw these in store for the first time and decided to give them a try because we liked the idea of shaping tights with a brazilian brief instead of the usual boxer brief. The quality is good, like most M&S products, but my wife and I both felt that they were not much different to regular M&S 15 denier tights at half the price. The brazilian brief is nice but these should be £4 or £5 and not £8. They are also only available in black!
