    As far as I know, it's two different things. I've never seen the tights, but the ones I got were very sheer like hose. As soon as I started pulling them up, the holes began materializing. It would have been annoying with $10 hose, but I spent more than twice that on these.

    This was several years ago, so maybe they've improved the product, but I'm sure not going to spend that much money to find out!

    These are quite thick, and hold you in.I got them last year, but then I got ill( shingles), and couldn't even try them on. I got them from home shopping, so I let too much time go by -before I could send them back. Maybe these are different, I am sorry you had to pay out that much. I have had that happen with hose, but they have been cheap
    Thanks Critical

    Eh, live and learn. I work from home now and try to avoid situations that require hose/tights, but when I do need them I go with DKNY. They have tall sizes and are very well made.

    Also, nomatter how bad you want Spanx to squash you smaller, do NOT buy them a size smaller than you take according to their chart. They may not fit right & may roll. The size you take according to their chart does just fine on it's own & you can move around comfortably.

    That sounds as if maybe the store was carrying old stock. I have seen that happen with regular hose.

    I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case, but it doesn't really matter. I'm not willing to pay that much money again to try them out when I have another brand of hose I like better.

    Spanx - I refuse to wear anything compression-wise. I like to let it all hang out under flowing clothes. I haven't even worn pantyhose in decades. I'll wear leggings and socks under a skirt/dress if I need to.
    Kaboom - if you're going to use it, make sure you have excellent ventilation. It is quite toxic. Read the label.
