Lo and beyond, kids, thanks to some "patented technology," these things actually do what they say, which is: "lay flat against your mid-section without causing any creasing or indentations in your waist, thus making clothes lay flatter and look better." Yep, that pretty much sums it up! We've already worn these babies with a clingy cotton mini-dress and a high-waisted skirt and the regular tights-induced bulges were nowhere to be seen. (Sadly, the holiday cookies-induced bulges remained.)
In any case, these $14.99 tights come from the founders of Milk & Honey, and they do have a couple of issues. First, the snag-ability level isn't ideal. We caught them with our engagement ring, after just the first wearing. Also, they only come in one size (and color), so for tall folks, the crotch doesn't quite sit right. And they've got a sheen factor, so matte-lovers, beware! But, again, no more muffin top! You make the call.
