All About Control Tights

Control Tights are full length tights – either opaque or sheer legged – with a built in body shaper at the top. The body shaper usually gives slimming control from the mid thighs up to either the waistline (for the low waisted control tights) or up to the midriff (for the high waisted control tights). Some control tights slim the legs as well, but the majority only slim the top half.

There are 2 main styles of control tights:

  1. Low waisted control tights. Full leg tights with a built in shaper that ends at the waistline.
  2. High waisted control tights. Full leg tights with a built in shaper that ends between your waist and bra line.

Things to consider when choosing control tights.

The main gripe I have with control tights is that once they have laddered, they are useless. I have found that the better quality (and therefore more expensive) control tights are made with much stronger legs, so they ladder and snag much less easily. The toes are also often reinforced to make them last longer.
