What's New: ShaToBu Get Fit Shaping Footless Tights

Happy Monday!

The time in between Winter and Spring is quite frustrating when it comes to choosing an outfit -- I never know if I should just go ahead and wear a dress or if I should still stick to leggings or pants... thank heavens for tights, though! ;)

A couple of months ago, Chun from sent me a pair of footless tights to review for you guys...

Gotta love packages!

First off, here's a little something about MyTights straight from its founder, Laura: arose out of a personal dislike of buying tights. It was either budget packs from the supermarket which lasted no time (and felt horrible), or the horrors of a department store where everything looked the same and instructions might just as well have been written in Chinese. I could never remember the brand, let alone the style and colour I had got last time.

The aim of is to have hosiery suitable for every size, shape and occasion. To make sure that you find exactly what you want, products have been examined in detail as well as being tested so that every aspect of each product is clearly described in simple terms. aims to stock everything you could possibly want to wear on your legs and if there is something you would like that we don’t have, please tell us.

Out of the many amazing products they offer, here is what I chose:

These calorie burning footless tights act like your normal shapewear, flattening your stomach and firming your butt and hips, but features resistance bands which help you to burn more calories! These ShaToBu Get Fit Footless Tights will make your figure look great and your muscles work harder so you get fitter with no extra effort - every woman's dream!

92% Nylon
8% Elastane

Price: $33.25

I have been wanting to get a pair of ShaToBu tights for the longest time now, and that is why I was so excited to receive this!

They definitely live up to the description of being a pair of tights and shapewear at the same time.
They fit well and they conform to the body's shape.
Another thing I love about it is that the waistband doesn't roll down like regular tights do.

They do not exactly flatten the stomach, but they do streamline and smooth any bumps and lines.
About the resistance bands... they are definitely there, but I'm not so sure about the burning calories part -- I guess the only way to know for sure if that works is if you wear this every day.

These tights must be worn with a dress or a tunic because they are quite sheer as you can see from the picture above.
And there is a line separating the darker part of the tights from the sheer part -- not exactly sure what that is for...

So yup, these are definitely more pricey than regular tights, but if you are looking for a high quality one for everyday use, then these are the perfect pair to reach for.

By the way, I took some photos of the outfit I wore with these tights, yay! ;)
