Cute but NOT durable

The tights are reasonably comfortable and the color is interesting. It is more green in the daylight than it looks on the picture. They do run somewhat small. I'm 5'5'' and usually size 0/XS, ordered a medium and it fitted just fine.

However, the major problem with these tights are that the knit is kind of thin and fragile, and there's a good chance they won't last very long. I got two pairs, and after the very first day, I found a hole at the crotch part. I did not do any sports in them, and nor did my daily work (basically sitting in an office) involve any big movements that tights are not supposed to endure. This is a flawed design: it's a single-layer knit, and you can see each thread when your stretch them, just like a fine fishnet. Those threads around the seams have to tolerate much more force than the other parts, so it's rather easy to tear because there's no enhancement. I wanted to love them, and they felt good on, but they are just too expensive for one-time uses.

It could be that mine are just bad ones because I didn't see others complaining about the quality, but I do see the flaw in the design. Those are seconds anyway, so just be aware.
