The overall quality of these tights are ok but what doesn't work for me is the waistband. It isn't flattering at all and basically feels like you're being pinched in half (like a sausage link!). I'm fairly petite but it's still particularly obvious with a light colored leotard! so definitely pair these with a dark leotard. Not a big fan. Another thing to note is that the heel seam extends much higher than your shoe so you see a big v shape extending above your shoe which I find distracting.
