These are the tights I tried. First up, on the left, are the tights most women of colour are probably are most likely to find in stores, the dark great type tights. Not quite black but not quite brown or any variation thereof. Secondly, seen in the middle are the Tone 10 Pendeza tights. Thirdly, on the right are the tan tights which were one of the darker shades in Sainsburys
These are my legs without tights to give you an idea of my skin tone. My legs are pretty scarred from eczema, so tights are really important when I have a formal function. Usually you wouldnt see my knees, that is just for the pictures.Dark Grey Pendeza Tone 10 Tan
These pictures show the dark grey tights, then Pendeza tights and then the tan tights. Now at first glance the difference isn't that noticeable in the pictures. So I did these pictures
This is a shot of the tan tights. It looks like I covered my legs in Talcom powder. Not pretty in the bright light of day. I could possibly get a way with it in a dark room, if I kept my legs under the table. Also they dont do a great job of covering my scars.
This picture shows a comparison between the dark grey tights on the left and the Pendeza tights on the right. The warm colours of the Pendeza, just blow me away. The dark grey tights are adequate for the job but in comparison when you try these on there is such a marked difference. I must say at first when the Pendeza tights came out of the packet they looked a bit reddish... I wasn't convinced...but when you put them on they blend with your own natural tones, making it look so much more natural in comparison to the dark grey and tan tights.
