Sculptz is a shapewear and legwear brand that uses precision-sewn, breathable fabrics that move with your body to add control, smooth you down and hide bulges.
I tried their tights, which have weaving in different directions to lift and smooth without being binding. I tried both the SCULPTZ TUXEDO RIBBED OPAQUE – SHAPER TOP in silver lining (grey) and SCULPTZ CHEVRON OPAQUE – SHAPER TOP in A Girl’s Best Friend (black).
Both pairs of tights can be worn formally or casually. They smooth bulges and eliminate VPL. The pattern is a tone-on-tone, so it’s very subtle. Not even as noticeable as a lace pattern on tights. The upper thigh features a “run guard” which offers superior wear and durability.
The Sculptz shaping control panels will create a taut tummy, lift your rear and slim your hips and thighs. It’s very interesting how this seems to be done simply by changing the direction of the weave in the tights. But you get a noticeable lift without any discomfort. They don’t even feel as binding as a traditional control top. They are super comfortable! They do not feel like shapewear at all, and I completely agree with their motto “Shaping Control so Comfortable you’ll Forget you Have it On.”
A precision-sewn waist prevents binding – and comes up high so you don’t feel like you have a binding string sinking into your middle. It also has a bit of color sewn into the band in back so you can tell the back from the front easily when putting them on.
They also wash beautifully! I’ve put them in both the sink and the washing machine, I’ve drip-dried them and machine dried them, and have probably worn them 5 times now without a snag or run at all!
The only drawback I saw to these tights was that the medium covers such a large span (5’2″ – 5’9″) so there was extra height / length in the fabric on my 5’4″ frame (which is a typical medium). According to the weight on the size chart, though, I should not be wearing the size small, and the note on the package says to go up a size if you are between two sizes. Next time I’ll try going down a size instead.
