40% lycra or Second skin for the summer

Updated on Jun 18, 2011 @ 03:05:

Bought 6 pairs (for me, my wife and my daughter) with 70% discount (€4) in de Bijenkorf. Those who live in NL can still find XL and XXL sizes. The colours are not that interesting (very dark grey and brown), but at this price and with this quality…

They are tight, especially considering their thickness, very transparent, have almost no reinforcement (even around the seams!). My daughter was the first one who tried them on and when I asked her about the pantyhose, she answered: “What pantyhose? I do not feel anything on my legs”.

Almost bought these pantyhose on Saturday in De Bijenkorf, but decided to wait for a sale. The look of the fabric and the description are very promising. I would (hm.. will) definitely wear this Second Skin with shorts or breeches this spring and summer.

They are called Oroblu Pearl 15 Second Skin, have glossy sheen (I think their shine and transparency are sufficient to wear them in public 😉 and the following “features” according to the description:

  • Progress 3-dimension technology.
  • Smooth “Silk-like” pleasant feel.
  • Sheer from waist to toe.
  • Flat seams
  • Formed in shape of leg for natural look.
  • Fibre Content: 60% Nylon & 40% (yes, forty!!!) Elastane

Any sales or discounts – please let me know.

Update: Just found them on eBay DE: Oroblu Pearl 15

  1. 40% Elastane? I wonder how much stretch their XL would work for encasement.

  2. I’ve never seen any garment with so much elastane. Probably only in high compression medicine stockings? So I wonder how it works in these pantyhose.

  3. Sounds great!!! I live in England and have got some very good patterned and glitter tights by Oroblu at 70% discount at TK MAXX; this store does loads of great discount clothing, and they have an ever-changing range of discount tights; however the best time to find a great selection of tights there is in Autumn/winter; they have very little about this time of the year.

    I have some of those Speedo fullbody swimsuits; they are the only other item I have known to be as much as 40% lycra.

    Do you mean the suits with long legs but without sleeves?
