Comparison Review: Falke Seidenglatt 15 tights (Late 2018) size M vs. M/L

      Every time I finish a review, ideas would spring up as to which pair I can compare it with.  Most of the time, I jot down my ideas, but seldom have the time to write it up.  So, instead of a usual product review, I would like to start with a simple comparison review.

      I bought another pair of Seidenglatt 15 tights, and this time in size M.  Hence in this comparison review, I can show you the difference between M/L and M.  Since all other specifications are the same, I will focus on the size difference and fit.

Waistband:Knitted, 3.5cm wide
Finger band:No
Reinforced toe:Yes
Reinforced heel:No

Similarities and differences


      Size M had a better fit than M/L but still, not perfect.  Its total length is only 2cm shorter than the M/L, thus bagged around the knees as well (though not as obvious as size M/L).  Moreover, as it was one size smaller than the M/L, the circumference of the waistband was smaller as well.  Hence it rolled and dug in quite a bit.  The envelopment for size M was much better than M/L giving a firmer grip on the entire lower body.  

Comparison Falke Seidenglatt 15 06
Size M (below) is 2cm shorter than size M/L, when laid on a flat surface.

      The appearance was pretty much the same between the two sizes.  Size M also bagged around the knees, just less profound than size M/L.

Comparison Falke Seidenglatt 15 07
Falke’s statement hygienic gusset is visible through the tights’ sheer nature.

      Since the hose is especially long and not much elasticity, there was a sense of budging around the knees and the calf.  The waistband rolled and dug in, though it wasn’t causing too much discomfort for me.

ilovehosiery advice

      If you are a man, I would suggest you to skip the entire range, unless you are disproportionally tall and thin.  It would be less problematic for ladies, and size M is best suited for a height around 173cm with a lean silhouette.
