After viewing so many Carnival tights ripped to shreds this year, I am hoping that the costume designers realize rhinestones on waist bands are NOT a good idea! In addition I think the quality of the tights were pretty poor.Both Micles and Samaroos carried the "Silky" brand tights and while it held up well on Monday (I did not get one run) on Tuesday I went through two pairs!

So, in the quest for an alternative source of leg wear for Carnival 2010 one of my friends asked a Cheerleader at a basketball game what brand tights she wore and was told "Peavy brand". This is also the brand of tights worn by Hooters girls.

Peavy brand boasts durability and can be found online at and, I have even seen them sold on ebay.

Danskin also manufactures sheer to the waist tights and sell a brand that is touted as "run resistant"! I wonder if those tights ever got snagged on rhinestones?

The hardest part of buying tights online for me is matching to my skin tone, however I am willing to give these tights a try for 2010.

I know some of you ladies wore Danskin tights, if you did I am interested in your feedback on the quality, durability and the match to your complexion. Also, if anyone wore the Peavy brand tights I am very curious as to reviews on those too. Finally, if you wore tights that were another brand let me know where you bought them and how they held up as well.

Leave me a comment.
