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 9 and 10 for waistband). The fun space-dye color palettes add some kick to your legs!
Colors: Forest, Ozone, Purple Passion, Venus Red
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 11) 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 11) 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.
