So comfortable

Was worried they might be 'too wooly tights' but they are perfect for those days when you need something warmer but still light and lovely to wear,. Look great with boots and colour is good

Soft luxury for legs.

Very soft and great quality. A very good size and so comfortable to wear. Great with boots but be careful with zips!Soft colour which is great for Autumn and winter. Very good buy, in fact I ordered 2 more pairs in the sale, in black and chocolate. Great value.

Feel very special

I've been considering buying these tights for a long time but the price has been prohibitive. I have managed to snap some up in the sale (still blooming expensive) and am so glad I did. They are soft and comfortable and look fabulous. I've had so many nice comments about them - the most famous tights I've ever worn in that respect. I was worried that they would look a bit too 'holey' but the lace pattern is very subtle and delicate. I hope they are not so delicate that they will snag because once a bit of yarn is broken I would think there would be serious unravelling ahead. I found the sizing information completely useless on the Brora website - in fact I clicked on the place where there was supposed to be sizing info and it was a blank link. A dress size/height chart such as other tights manufacturers provide would be useful. Luckily I was helped by the reviews. If this helps I am size 16 and 5'5 and have gone for extra large which fit reasonably generously but not so generous that I would want to move down a size. When I buy trousers I usually go for regular. Hope this is helpful for others.

These are the warmest and most comfortable tights I ever had. I live in very nordic climate zone at the seaside of Baltic Sea and here is windy and wet weather most of the time. But Brora items keep me cosy and warm and last not least they are BEAUTIFUL

So lovely and warm and soft - they don't fall down or wrinkle round the ankles, and they wash really well too! Just wish they were available in more colours!

Just beautiful!

These tights are the prettiest of all the designs. You need to take care of them but they do last well and are so light and warm. I still wear mine from last year under trousers as they are too pilled to wear with dresses now. They are expensive but for a dressy look, the colour & design are worth it I think. The diesel colour is great - unusual but goes with all my Winter skirts.

Soft & Stylish

These tights are warm, very soft, and stylish! The lace knit pattern offsets a simple dress or skirt beautifully and does not have the scratchy texture of wool tights. Well worth the price.

They feel beautifully warm and soft

BUT they are for a Christmas present and the first pair arrived with the wrapper stuck firmly to the lace fabric. The replacements are also stuck to the wrapper but not all round so I'm hoping that, when I've handed over my gift, we can soak the tights to soften the adhesive and release them without damage. If not they'll have to go back yet again. I can't comment on the fit and so on as they are not for me.

Simply the best

I thought I remembered how utterly gorgeous these are, put on this morning for the first time this A/W & realised, NO you need to wear them to realise the sumptious softness of cashmere & silk on bare legs. Colours are beautiful , I buy a size up as they are a delicate knit, see my other review for care tips. Please don't change these ever, the other patterns are more robust for those who find these too delicate. For myself; they are one of my winter luxe comforts. Expensive? Can you put a price on happiness & these tights do make me very happy. Looked after they also outlast other brands by miles. Hoping for a return of the Brora advent calendar to stock up.

The best tights I have ever come across !

I find these tights (esp. in Diesel colour) are very versatile and haven't seen any similar colour tights anywhere else. The most important thing to love about them though, is that they are so very cosy while looking more 'dressy' than 'thermal'! Equally suited to weekend flat boots, evening heels or for the office. Treat with respect to avoid any pulls given the lacey weave is only caution. I highly recommend them and will continue treating myself to at least one pair a year while they are available !

expensive but worth treating yourself

I bought these tights in mulberry,and they are my second pair of Brora cashmere tights. They feel soft and luxurious to wear, and fit well. The sizing is potentially problematic as the fine cashmere and lacey design cannot be stretched too much. I'm 5ft 5in size 12 to 14 and bought the large but someone much taller might find they're not long enough. I think they look and feel great so I'm keeping them.

Unclear sizing

I couldn't figure out what size to order these in. I ended up going for Large, because I'm tallish - ie around 5 feet nine - with long legs. I thought XL might be geared towards people who are not only tall, but heavier overall. However, they weren't long enough and even though I love the colour (elderberry) and design, I had to send them back. This is particularly annoying because I'm in Australia, so it becomes quite an expensive exercise once you factor in the shipping costs, which aren't refunded. I don't think there's enough sizing guidance for this product.

Don't buy! Poor quality for this price!

I agree with Tight Buyer from NI on all counts. I remarked on how lovely these tights looked in a Broha shop and my friend gave me a pair as a gift - diesel, M - and they fit perfectly. Unfortunately I could see that I would need to be careful because the feet, upper thigh and hips are not reinforced. After one wear, the cashmere blend was pilling on my feet (inside and around the edge of my ballerine shoes), as well as on the inner thigh. Other brands of high-end wool, silk, cashmere blend tights didn't result in the level of pilling and I would assume this is because the design uses the (lovely) lace pattern from top to toe, without regard for wear. I don't expect them to last for more than a season, but I am shocked to find that my third wear - today - resulted in further pilling and the friction snared the elastic thread and created a hole. I had worn them to work, under a pencil skirt and am so disappointed they couldn't last more than THREE wears. Even at a discount - this is a ridiculous level for this brand. I'm disappointed that the design hasn't changed either.

Fabulously Warm, Soft, Nostalgic Design.

I have bought a few pairs of these over the past couple of years so I can wear them against each other, I hand wash them with care and so far they are still looking good. I have to add that I wear trousers a lot of the time so they don't get an extreme amount of wear. For some one who was wearing them every day I 'm not sure how long they would remain looking good. As other reviews have said the feet in particular could do with some reinforcement especially the toe & heal areas. I have to disagree with the review about the tops needing to be plain I love the pattern going right to the top, I have always found most tight designs ugly with unsightly tops. Wearing Brora tights these & the more robust ribbed, have encouraged me out of trousers in the winter as they are so comfortable, being very warm and soft. They are an expensive luxury, but in a world of cheap, itchy, ugly leg attire they are a joy to wear. The colour palette is versatile, I have the Black (classic, smart) Chocolate (rich brown very vintage, nostalgic inspired) Diesel (blue/grey that enhances/tones with an autumn/winter palette) & the Burgundy (rich wine/berry that contrast or tones, whilst adding colour on dark winter days). So now I just need to save up for the elderberry for next winter.I do think Brora need to look at revamping the design around toe & heel area; it surprises me that with most reviews flagging this up as a definite or potential problem that they haven't done so already. So come on Brora design team let's hear from you on this matter. Regarding fit I buy the large (I'm 5ft 8 a size 10 - 12) the leg length is better for me in this design especially, I would not want to be stretching/pulling them up too much as they are after all a delicate, lacy knit. I would defiantly recommend these tights, especially to others who hate the feel of the 100% man made ones. Maybe not for the person who wants/needs to wash in the machine/tumble-dry to wear daily, as they are best hand washed & dried carefully. For those who delight in the beauty that is Brora design, just take the plunge, invest you won't regret it & neither will your legs which will the best dressed in town.

Unsure about durability

Bought diesel in Harrogate yesterday. Have just got home and tried them on. I am size 10 5'3 and the fit is perfect, as is the colour. However I have just read review from 'Northern Ireland Tight Buyer' and have same apprehension regarding design and durability. I agree with everything she has written.They are very expensive and at that price need to last.If they do last I will invest in more. On a positive note my cable and patterned tights bought in the autumn are both lasting well.

A lovely idea-needs to be made robust to justify cost

Found the sizing to be tricky initially. I am just under 5 foot 9 and a slim size 10 - was advised by Customer Services to try the Medium but it was not quite long enough in the leg - too taut when pulled up - felt like it would stretch the lace dangerously over time to the point of ripping, so got the Large to afford more leeway and the fit is indeed more comfortable - not so taut.The foot seems to be a bit longer however than the medium size I think so it needs to be pulled back across the heel into place more. Hope that will not cause a wear issue, where the plain knit on the heels moves forwards. Fabric seems a little saggy at the feet - first impression was that a little lycra should be injected into the design to make them keep their shape - am concerned they will go baggy due to the lack of it.Lovely lacey pattern - the prettiest of the range. Got the diesel colour which is deep blue toned and unique.In view of the slightly obscene £££££££££ outlay on these I had hoped they would have been designed in a more robust way, to justify the cost. However, was very surprised and disappointed to see that the top section of the tights (ie waist, hips and tops of thighs, gusset which other brands usually leave in a plain knit all over and double thickness knit, as it is not seen, and to improve the robustness of them, has been left patterned and lacey up to the very top on these tights! I think this is a very hazardous design. I think it is pointless to continue the lace over your bottom, hips and waist, as the pattern will be covered with clothing anyway! It is a waste of Brora's effort. This should definitely be changed to plain thick knit, to add strength as I can anticipate the lacey top section will pull holes as the tights are pulled up over time. That really needs to be attended to Brora and it would be so simple to do and would really help your customers! Also, the feet (toe area and heels need to be strengthened also - make them double thickness plain - the plain knit does not seem thick enough - get your design team to work out something really practical - perhaps a slightly different, stronger, fabric composition on the heels and toes?) Brora, your customers are discerning so really think you should respond to this issue asap as I have seen it has been raised in several reviews for some time. With a reinforced top section/gusset and strengthened toe and heel area, I would feel more confident in the durability of these tights to convince me to invest in more, and I am sure other customers would too- no point in tights being pretty/lacey if they rip through after a couple of wears - that will just leave exasperated clients! I will see how this pair will endure. Would have considered other colours but am conducting a test on one colour first to see how they go.In short, I think these tights are a lovely, unique,vintage inspired idea, which needs to have more practicality introduced into the design to encourage repeat purchase. Hope this will help both Brora and its customers. : )

Much better than leggings for warmth

I needed to buy XL despite only being size 12-14 as smaller ones did not fit well. I have several pairs as once wearing it is hard to go back to ordinary wool tights. They are elegant and can be worn with everyday as well as party wear.

Great tights

I was concerned that these may not fit (I'm 6ft and a size 14 and went for the large size) but was delighted and they are everything I hoped for: stylish, fit wonderfully are warm and a lovely colour. I got the desil to go with greys and denim. Worth every penny!

Almost perfect tights

Warm in winter but also perfectly ok for spring weather. I have had these tights before and reviewed them before. I STILL think the heel needs to be better reinforced. The slightly thicker knit for the heel is not high enough and this part of the tights wears thin and doesn't look good. Put them on with great care. Having said all that, they do look nice.

Lovely to wear and much admired.

Lovely to wear and much admired - they are eye catching! They do pill after a couple of washes and the heels are already wearing through.Special item at this price so need special care to last as long as possible.
