Very nice quality, worth the priceFeb 19, 2010
I've been wearing skirts and dresses a lot recently and have been looking for nice, basic black tights to layer under them during the colder months. After a couple of mishaps with cheap tights that were either too thin, snag easily, or stretch out and get baggy while I'm wearing them; I decided to spend the little bit of extra money on these tights. And it was money well spent :]
While I've always had to be very careful with some of my cheaper tights, I'm not worried about causing a run in these Spanx tights at all. They definitely have some nice heft to them without looking too thick. It sucks in any little bumps that you may have without being too constricting. The waistband stays up nicely and comfortably without being too snug.
Just as a reference since I was a little unsure about the sizing when I was purchasing these, I'm 5'3, 123lbs, with hips and thighs that run on the curvier side. I got these tights in the 'B' size and they fit perfectly. The tights came with its own sizing chart that was much more helpful than the sizing chart currently available on this page. You can find it on the Spanx website.

best basic tights!Nov 15, 2009
By J. Hempstead
These tights are worth every dollar ($26). I wear black tights almost exclusively all winter, and now that I've discovered Spanx, I don't bother with "opaques". These are smooth, comfortable, and most of all durable--hence the value. I got the C size, even though I'm barely in that range (honest) because I didn't want to avoid any risk of them being too small/short. I didn't have to worry about them being too big-- they are very forgiving in both directions.

Spanx are Durable, But ExpensiveJan 11, 2008
I am a recent purchaser of the Spanx Tight End Matte Tights and have been extremely satisfied. Have found no problem with the quality -- they wear well and provide the shaping I desire. My only complaint is that the price seems pretty high for a product of this type. I used to buy Haines Opaque Shapers, but those are no longer offered. I think the Spanx are better than the Haines product.

not opaqueNov 20, 2011
I am frustrated with the hosiery industry redefining the word "opaque". These are not "sheers", certainly, but they're not what I think of as tights, either. If I can see my skin through them, they're not opaque. (This listing does not say they're opaque, but I went to other sites with this product number and was told that these were.)
I was frustrated to pay this price and then not actually have what I think of as opaque tights. Now, I've learned that one needs to find out the denier level of hosiery. Wikipedia can explain denier to you better than I, but for me, I like denier 90 or 100, and these are maybe 70 at best.
The only two current lines I've found that are heavy enough for my wishes are Donna Karan Perfect Opaque (90 denier, Style #OB259, hard to find in anything other than black) and Falke Pure Matte 100 Opaque Tights (100 denier, Style #40110, which is enormously expensive). FYI that I did also try a pair of the Hue "Super Opaque Control Top" (Style #6620), which said it was 90 denier on the listing of the site I bought them at, but these are comparable to the Spanx in density. (They're much more affordable, though, if you like the Spanx density.)

Well worth a few dollars moreMar 05, 2009
By Peggy Martens
If you haven't tried SPANKX yet, you're really doing yourself a disservice. Yes, they cost more than traditional panty-hose. But the bodyshaping design and fabric really tighten-and-tuck in the areas that affect the drape of a skirt or even the way you look in pants. I have nicely shaped legs. But sometimes my tummy can be a bit bloated and poochey looking, especially after a big meal. Spankx totally tucks and trims without restricting my movement, blood circulation, breathing! They're comfortable and figure flattering, so try 'em out!
