This style of men's tights has a comfortable, reinforced brief, sheer legs, and lightweight fabric, and it provides medium support and graduated compression. The leg fabric is a little shiny because of light reflected off the two helical wrappings of shiny nylon filaments, which are wound over the elastane yarns for added protection. As a result the fabric glides exceptionally well, not only under trousers, but against itself. The leg fabric is very silky. The brief is a light control top brief that will stay in place. It is comfortable and cool and minimizes moisture build-up. This style has no male-comfort front panel, and no fly opening. It features a conventional nylon/cotton gusset and reinforced toe for added strength and durability, and a wider waistband which reduces the tendency to roll.
