Reviewed: Cette Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights

Cette, the leading Belgian hosiery and shape wear manufacturer, sent us a pair of their Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights to trial and review.

We have previously reviewed the following styles from Cette:

Cette Dublin Plus Size Opaque Tights

Cette Dublin 60 Denier Opaque Tights

Cette Quebec 40 Denier Satin Tights

Materials and features
The Cette Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights are part of the Cette Size Plus collection.

Packaging is quite simple and is designed for the tights to be hooked onto a display. The tights are enclosed in a warp around card clasp. I guess the advantage when they are displayed in a store is that you can touch the fabric.

The tights are made from 65% Polyamide, 32% Cotton and 3% Elastane.

The fabric is matt, extremely soft and with no shine.

The tights and sheer to waist and have no demarcation between the legs and the brief. Seams are flat.

The 2XL size that I wore has a rear comfort gusset. I suspect this is the case with all sizes in this style.

Fit and sizing
The Cette Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights are available in three sizes: XL, 2XL and 3XL.

I tested the 2XL size.

The Cette Size Plus collection has genuinely been designed for larger women and men.

In the 2XL size leg length was perfect for my 5’10” height.

The brief was deep and comfortable and easily stretched over the hips and waist.

The Sochi tights provided an excellent wearing experience. The tights felt very warm and soft on the skin.

Colour range
The Cette Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights are available in two shades: Black and Ristretto

I tested a pair in Ristretto, a dark brown.

Price and availability

The Cette Sochi Cotton 120 Denier Tights are not currently available at any UK stockists.

The recommended retail price (RRP) is £22.95.

Conclusion
The Cette Size Plus collection is one of the best selection of tights now available for larger women and men. The Sochi Cotton 120 Tights are a great addition to the range and we were really impressed with the good sizing, fit and overall quality.

The 2XL size that we tried was perfect and provided a wonderful fit without any stretching needed.

These are some of the best cotton opaque tights that we have reviewed this year.

Thanks to Cette for providing the sample for review.
