Hanes Silk Reflections Comfort Stretch Control-Top Footless Tights
Love these tights!
Great pair of footless tights. Good solid color , never had a problem with sizing from EF to GH,,, 5'11 170 Lbs slim frame. They do roll at bit down on the waist...they don't pull down in the crotch.

TIGHTS, not leggings!
First, understand that these are footless tights, not leggings as Hanes uses the word for some of their other products (see also recommended products below). Aside from the name, these are really great.
A question you may or may not want to ask but I will answer anyway is: can you wear these as leggings alone (i.e., not under something)? I don't recommend wearing just leggings alone unless you're a 20-year old college girl who wants to show off, but it's ok for a quick emergency run to the store. Alternatively, you may want to know whether you can wear these to the gym or for yoga.
The answer: kinda, depending on how bashful you are. First, they have a small cotton crotch, so that will be visible. Further, there is a small line on the thigh where the control top ends. If you're ok with that, if you choose your underwear carefully, you can mostly get away with it, in circumstances where modesty is not strictly required.
I have both the grey and black pair, and will only discuss the black pair (forget wearing the grey alone!). If you wear black panties, and pull more of the material up from the legs, you'll hide 95%. I've worn these to yoga and no one has said anything. Worn with both bikini and thong panties (always black) and been pretty ok with the look...in a room full of women.
It should be noted that they are fantastic as yoga pants. They're very snug, so they move with you 100%. Definitely could work for dancers too.

After a strenuous workout, these provide a cheap low compression solution which aids in post workout recovery.

I have not actually worn these yet however they are what I was looking for in a lightweight legging. I am sure I will be pleased once I do wear them.
