{December 22, 2007}   A Review of We Love Color Tights

A few days ago I received three pairs of colored tights from the website We Love Colors. I had been looking for some tights, because they are one of my favorite fashion trends as I mentioned in My Top Five Favorite Fashion Trends This Season Article. After they arrived I tried a pair on to see how they would fit, but I had some discrepancies with them. The problem with the internet is that you don’t know how they will turn out until they arrive, so I wrote this article to tell how they really are from a fellow consumer’s standpoint.

They are high waisted. I dislike high waisted clothing and enjoy wearing my pants and skirts lower on my hips. I can’t even stand jeans being at my belly button, but these pants were exponentially high waisted. When I tried them on they were a little less than an inch below my rib cage and I’m long waisted! A possible solution would have been to roll them, but then I would have a giant bulge. I want an item that fits correctly.

The charts to order them are inaccurate. The charts on the website go by your overall height starting from your toes to your head. However, we all have different proportions. If I was the owner of the business I would have you measure your length of your legs, because the length of the rest of your body doesn’t matter. For example the tights may be too short on someone who has a short torso and long legs. Their legs will be longer than someone who has the overall same height, but has a longer torso and shorter legs. They are the same height and get the same size tights, but have different leg sizes. This is inaccurate, because the tights length depends on the length of your legs not the rest of your body.

They were baggy on me. My legs aren’t wide, but they aren’t extremely thin either. I have muscular legs, so I was surprised the tights were so loose on me. The size I ordered was for under 300 pounds, but it was the only one I could get because of my height. I wish there would have been more options available

I loved the colors of the tights. There were around 45 different colors available on the site to choose from. The colors ranged from neon pink to royal blue. With such a wide span of colors you could pick any color you can think of. When I received the package I wasn’t surprised by the color they ended up being, because they were the same color that was shown on the site. I’ve ordered items online before that have looked nothing like what was shown on the website.

I was elated there was a 30 day money back guarantee. The guarantee says that if you have any problems with the tights, even if you just don’t like them, they will take them back. However, you have to pay for shipping and handling, which was about half of what we paid for them. However, I figured if I wasn’t going to wear them, because they didn’t fit it would be a waste of money to keep them. Also, if they were worn or unsellable than you have to pay an additional restocking fee. We haven’t returned them, yet so I’m hoping we don’t have to pay for the restocking fee.

Overall, I felt that the negatives outweighed the positive and I believe making the decision to return them was the right one. I will miss the variety of colors. However, I plan on going to Express to get some tights, because at least I can try them on there. They may be more expensive, but they are low waisted and not loose on me. Also, I can try them on to make sure I like them. I was really excited about them until they arrived and I tried them on. So, I wanted prevent anyone else from feeling that disappointment and letting you know what you are receiving before you buy them.
