Remember the 'Seticato 40' from Pierre Mantoux? This is the product that 'replaces' it. The two big differences you will notice is that it is not as 'tight' (compressive) on your legs as the Setificato 40. These truly feel like pantyhose, not tights. What impressed us is the very high gloss! Not 'just glossy'....SUPER glossy! If you look up the word 'Eclatant' it means "brilliant, blazing and bright'. So yes, these are aptly named! If you are a fan of the 'Magie 20' from Oroblu...you MUST try these! The photos give a good indication of the high gloss. The fabric is 40 denier and spun with double covered lycra which gives these a very soft feel. Sizes small, medium and large have a visible cotton gusset, Size XL has a 'V' shaped (rear) panel that extends from the gusset to the rear waistband. Since the gusset is the same material (and is part of this panel) and color as the leg, it appears as if there is no gusset. The package mentions the toes are reinforced. Our images show you can wear these with open toe shoes; the reinforcement is not visible. Available in four sizes and four colors. Size XL will easily fit a taller height than the sizing table indicates. The 'sand' color is closer to a 'bronze' than a 'beige'. In the right light, the 'perla' shade will appear more silver than grey. Wear them at your next holiday party and your legs will be the center of attention!
