Romfh Ladies Jean Tight
These are adorable tights, and I got compliments on them every time I wore them. However, they have two major problems.
(1) The rivets on the back pockets are set so low that, if you are a dressage rider at least, they will scratch the seat of your saddle.
(2) The stitching is not durable. I had to return the first pair I bought (from another outlet) because the stitching on the front pocket had unraveled before I ever got to the barn. Figuring it was a fluke, I bought another pair. These lasted for several months of light use, but the stitching is now unraveling again. It is on an outside seam and will be difficult to repair without being really obvious.
They're really cute, cheap, and cheerful, but I can't recommend these tights.

These tights are great! they fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I was a little nervous about the previous comments about them being so slick in the saddle but I have had no problems with that (might be personal preference.) I have gotten nothing but compliments when I have them on. so I would absolutely recommend these and would buy another pair

The Most Flattering Tights Ever!
I had been wanting to try a pair of these tights for the longest time, but my cheap-o ways had been holding me back.. Finally I bit the bullet and bought these in the brown-ish color called raisin. I just received them yesterday and I am IN LOVE. They are so incredibly flattering and fit SO well. I have a kind of wide butt and thicker thighs, but I could totally wear these out around town (and I plan to) and not be embarrassed at all about the usual unflattering look of breeches and tights.
The material is very thin and will be excellent for hot AZ summers, and as a whole these tights seem really well constructed and have lots of little details. The fabric does seem a little slick, but my calfskin saddle always makes up for that. However, I'm not sure how well the slinky fabric will hold up to snags, which is why I tentatively gave a 4 in durability. If you've been debating trying a pair of these, stop! Just do it already. You'll love them.
They are especially chic with my now discontinued Ariat Volant half chaps.

My butt isn't what it used to be...
I expected these tights to fit me like a good pair of jeans-suck and tuck in the spots that need it. Alas, they didn't and given I don't have the body of a teenager (and am not particularly fit right now, although I am not overweight), they did not look very attractive on me. Still, they look like they have the potential to be cute on someone else (eg, the models), and the material seemed relatively thick for tights and well-made.

Very Disappointed :(
I love Romfh products, so I had no hesitation when I purchased these. I found the fit very unflattering, the front pocket seams pulled in at a strange angle making my abdomen look lumpy. I really wanted to like these but, I had to return them.
