The panty is doubled up to avoid adding a waistband. This is intended to avoid pinching. The doubling up of the fabric makes it a tiny bit thicker, which has the benefit of being more durable, and therefore lasting longer. Despite the doubled up fabric, the garment still creates a sleek look, as demonstrated in the package photo.
The doubling up of the fabric makes it a reinforced panty, and not a control top panty. Therefore, the panty is not too constrictive.
If you are looking for plus size hosiery in other colours, then consider buying Silks Plus Size Pantyhose in nude. That style has more black sizes, too.
Unfortunately, this style has been discontinued. 3 colour-size combinations are listed in the drop down list, and all of them are ready to ship in 24 hours. All other colour-size combinations are out of stock.
This beautiful sheer hosiery features a shadow toe.
