I usually wear petite sizes for my small 23 inch waist, but these tights were even a bit uncomfortably tight on me. I still love the detail enough to wear them though. They look like real garter stockings! They even feel velvety. As with all tights on here they are extremely thin, be careful how you wash them and do not put them in a dryer. What you see on the front of the tights is mirrored on the back.
