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 panty could be best thought of as a low-mid rise panty, where a mid rise panty might be thought of as a regular panty. This panty works well with tight dresses or outfits that reveal a bit of midriff.
The doubling up of the fabric makes it a reinforced panty, and not a control top panty. Therefore, the panty is not too constrictive. On the other hand, if you want a little tummy support, then don't be afraid to try a pair of the Silks control top version of this style.
Unfortunately, this style is discontinued. There are still many pairs of hint-o-black in sizes B & C, though, and as of Dec. 15, 2016, they are currently in stock. There are 9 black size B pairs in stock. Since these are cheaper than the other style, get these black size B pairs while you can. If you would like size A, then consider getting us to shorten some size B pairs for you. If you would like black C and natural, then please consider the Silks version of this style.
This beautiful sheer hosiery features a shadow toe.
The sizes for this Silks Essentials style are the same as the sizes for the Silks versions.
