NOTE: We’re sorry to inform our customers that E.G. Smith is no longer in production. We’ll be looking for a replacement in the coming months, so let us know if you have a favorite comfortable and durable tights brand to recommend. You can check out what remains in all three styles (solid footed, solid footless, and space-dye footless) at this link: belle-starr.com/collections/vendors?vendor=E.G.Smith&q=E.G.Smith
E.G. Smith’s comfy, substantial tights are noticeably warmer than nylon-based styles, and the fabric gives them a richer hue than typical opaque tights and a softer, legging-like feel. The structured toes and heels prevent bunching, and the waist stays put without sagging or digging into your waist (see images for waistband). The bright color palette add some kick to your legs!
Colors: Brownie, Forest, Navy, Inky Violet
Fabric content: 77% cotton, 20% nylon, 3% spandex
Care instructions: machine wash cold, hang dry
- Two sizes, both fitting US women’s shoe size 6-10 (Belle’s Starr’s owner Sue wears them and she has narrow size 11 feet.)
- Small/Medium: the label (image 10) says they fit 5'0" to 5'6" or 99 to 155 lbs. While this size stretches to fit 45” hips and a 24” high, some folks with 38” hips found they were rather snug. Women with fuller legs/thighs may want to go up a size for comfort.
- Medium/Tall: the label (image 10) says these fit 5'5" to 5'11" or 145 to 195 lbs. This size stretches to fit a 48” hip and 28” thigh, but that was the maximum. Those with long legs will probably like this size best, even if they're slimmer than the weight range.
- The tight does not have a back gusset. However, while the seams may get thin in the rear and crotch, holes rarely form until after many, many wears/washes.
