We have to admit, when we received a box of No More Muffin Top tights in the mail (the Os in "no more," by the way, are shaped like little muffins), we rolled our eyes a bit. Although, of course, we were also pretty excited to try them out, thanks to the fact that we are truly annoyed by all of these so-called "control-top" tights that actually make you feel like a Spanx-y stuffed sausage, no matter your fitness level.
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.
