Snag Tights hit the scene with a riot of shade and a promise to unravel the hosiery match issues confronted by plus sized of us. As somebody who wears tights three seasons of the yr, I knew these issues all too nicely: tights stretched skinny over my thighs, chopping into the crease of my hip; tights too quick that find yourself nicely under my crotch; tights that roll over and creep down on the waist. Snag promised to unravel them by manufacturing their tights with variation in size, width, and waist circumference slightly than simply size.
Whereas not completely a plus measurement firm as they serve US sizes 2-32, Snag instantly grabbed my consideration with their product images. That includes fashions in a variety of sizes, together with quite a lot of recognizable plus measurement bloggers, their images look cheerful, trendy, and accessible. I used to be very glad to not see any of the “smaller mannequin stretching the waistband to indicate how massive it will get” images different firms have relied upon.
For this overview, I selected a collection of their tights at totally different opacities and a pair of the “chub rub shorts.” The measurement chart supplied by Snag exhibits that their sizes match roughly US girls’s sizes 2-32, heights of round 5’3” or beneath and as much as 6’5”. I chosen the dimensions F. I put on round a measurement 20-22 US and am 5’7”.
Colours and Supplies
Snag carries tights in quite a lot of thicknesses: opaque 80 denier ($13); semi-opaque 50 denier ($12); and sheer 30 denier ($12). The “chub rub shorts” ($13) are fabricated from a cloth just like the opaque tights. Additionally they carry fishnets, youngsters’ tights, and wool tights, seasonally.
The opaque tights are available in quite a lot of darkish and vibrant colours, and for this overview I chosen the intense “Raspberry Pie” shade. It’s vibrant, saturated, and feels fairly cheerful – though it reads extra pink than berry in my images. The material may be very comfortable to the contact and has quantity of stretch. They learn absolutely opaque on my calves however extra sheer on the thighs and abdomen.
The semi-opaque tights are available in fewer colours, simply black, brown, and beige (“Sizzling Chocolate” and “Builder’s Tea,” respectively). The sheer pantyhose, equally, are available in Black, “Vanilla Marshmallow,” “Caramel,” and “Praline.” Whereas these are marketed as “Pores and skin Tones”, there’s room for development in representing extra skin-toned shade choices. I chosen the Black semi-opaque tights and the “Vanilla Marshmallow” sheers.
Compared to the opaque tights, each the semi-opaque and sheer materials have a barely toothier really feel. In sporting them, I apprehensive that the feel would catch and trigger friction between my thighs. It didn’t noticeably hassle me, fortunately, however I ponder if it would trigger an issue for people who stroll quite a bit of their tights.
The toothiness is a slight trade-off for the truth that all three choices are matte, with out the slight sheen and smoother surfaces some tights and pantyhose have. I a lot want a matte end to the gleam of an ‘80s pair of “suntan” pantyhose, so I’ll take it!
The chub rub shorts come within the impartial tones of black, brown, and beige in addition to some trend colours. I chosen “Raspberry Pie” in these as nicely. They’re constructed out of the identical material because the opaque tights, however finish above the knee with a foldover hem.
Match and Consolation
General, these are a number of the most snug tights I’ve worn. All 4 types have a excessive rise with a comfortable waistband about 1.5” thick. The waistbands are stretchy however with good restoration. Whereas they do have a bolstered panty part, they don’t embody any additional compression.
The lengthy rise and comfortable, huge waistband imply these ought to work nicely for a lot of physique sorts. I’ve fairly a excessive waist and a full stomach, which mixed implies that tights usually hit under the smallest a part of my torso and roll down. These, thus far, have stayed firmly in place all day.
Each the semi-opaque and sheer tights match comfortably snugly on my legs and don’t bag. The opaque tights appear to have barely much less restoration – or are barely bigger – and so I do discover some bagging across the ankles after a number of hours’ put on.
The one disappointment within the bunch is the chub rub shorts. I wished to like them! I’ve tried quite a lot of issues for thigh rub, from a number of totally different shorts choices to rub-on deodorants and lotions to Bandelettes.
Of all of the shorts choices I’ve tried, these are definitely essentially the most snug and felt the lightest. Sadly, on me the thighs don’t remain in place. After simply working an errand for an hour or so, the legs had rolled proper as much as the crease of my thigh. I’m unsure if sizing down would assist. As a result of they’re snug, I’ll probably proceed to put on them anyway, simply with the information that I’ll have to discreetly pull them down each every now and then.
Will I Purchase Extra of Plus Measurement Hosiery?
YEP. I don’t actually put on sheer tights/hose, personally, so I may not want extra of these. However I like the opaque tights and need extra colours. Within the fall and winter, I just about stay in navy tights, so I’ll get a number of pairs of these. However my eye can also be drifting to the saturated mustard, the intense purple, and the bottle inexperienced.
I additionally like that they’ve quantity reductions in order that stocking up on a number of pairs directly will get you a bit off. At $10-13 they’re cheaper than most of the dominant plus-size retailers – and don’t include a requisite “smoothing” higher.
With the uncertainties of COVID19, Snag shared some monetary difficulties earlier this spring. Clients – together with me – rallied and acquired limited-edition present certificates for future purchases to assist float this troublesome time. They’ve introduced that it was sufficient to maintain them going; I feel it’s clear from that response that they fill a much-needed hole within the plus-size market. I’m excited to redeem my certificates for extra tights simply in time for fall!
