As Expected Feb 14, 2014
By Doris V. Carey
Support is great but product does run a little small. Ordered a larger size due to previous review I read, so the fit is as expected--a little long for my height, but support is great!
Different levels of Control Nov 19, 2013
By S. Crawford
I had reviewed another set of Berkshire control top tights without realizing that there are actually different levels of control for this brand. When I bought the MAX version, I finally realized that the control top comes in "one, two, and three," with this product reaching the maximum potential. I am giving it 5 stars because it does exactly what it says it will, but there are pros and cons.
First of all, I am a size 10 or 12 and ordered the medium. Perhaps I should have gone with the large, but I don't regret this purchase. The biggest con in my opinion is the need to breathe. These tights are SERIOUSLY reducing... well, this could be because I ordered the wrong size but WOW they were uncomfortable after a couple of hours! Thank goodness I didn't try to eat lunch while wearing these!
However, let's be honest - we all know that the way to lose weight is to exercise and eat right, not through control-top tights. No one is buying these with a need for comfort. If you're like me, you're buying them because a few extra pounds have crept up and all of the sudden you have to squeeze into a dress that fit just fine a few months ago. And if this is the reason you're buying the MAX tights rather than the other versions of the control top, you will not be unhappy. Due to frequent business travel this year, I have gained about 10 pounds that I am working to shed, but until I am successful, these will be an essential part of my wardrobe so that I don't have to go out and buy a whole new set of suits. They literally took at least 10 pounds off instantly.. or perhaps more. My too-tight skirt fit just fine once I put these on!
So, if you want to breathe and feel comfortable, buy a different version of the Berkshire pantyhose, but if you want to lose 10 pounds instantly, buy these. They're amazing.
Fit Apr 30, 2013
Buy a larger size than you think you need. The run on the small side and some styles are very short in the waste but they are good quality.
