I stumbled upon this product after scanning the lengths and breaths of UK sites for naturally skin tone tights for dark skin of african/american/caribbean origins. The colour was slightly darker than preferred, but because it is very sheer, it blends well. (Please do not try the bronze as it is much lighter for mixed race skin tones).
I love these tights as it makes my legs look flawless and toned. I have since ordered several online. Disappointed to note that they have been out of stock online for the last 2 weeks. Nonetheless, will continue to wait and purchase once available.Thanks Debenhams for bringing out this product.

I was a bit sceptical at first as it is so difficult to find 'skin' colour tights for women with darker complexions, and also after some of the other reviews, but I am pleasantly surprised with these tights. The colour is slightly darker than my natural tone but as they are so thin they look perfectly fine. They only seem to come in size L which again I wasn't sure about, but they fit well and I wear a size 10. I'm really glad Debenhams have brought this line of tights out and maybe they will expand the range and introduce more shades. Overall I am very happy with them and I have just ordered 3 more pairs.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jblue Thin & lack sheen.
I thought I'd try these after not being able to find âEboneâ tights anymore. I had a similar experience to the previous reviewer. I ordered the brown but was sent this coffee shade which is a bit to dark for me but wearable. They are really thin so I have a horrible feeling Iâll only get one use out of them. Iâm glad Debenhams have made an effort to cater for darker complexions but the tights need more sheen and clear labelling is needed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EdinburghGirl Well done Debenhams!
As a young woman of West African descent, I have never been able to find suitable skin colour tights until now. Most shops stock only 'nude', 'tan' and 'nearly black'- the latter being a horrible, ashy grey colour which I find very ageing and does not suit me at all. So when I found out that Debenhams had introduced a new range of dark sheer tights, I knew I had to try them out.
Online they are referred to as 'brown' but the packet instore says 'coffee' Also I noticed that when I compared numerous packs of the 'coffee' shade, half were much lighter than the others so maybe they had been mislabelled- this is something I would advise other shoppers to watch out for. A sales assistant was kind enough to open the outer packaging so I could get a better look and she even advised me as to which shade (of the two 'coffee's) she thought best.
The tights are very soft, but as they're sheer I'm slightly worried about laddering them. They are a better colour match than the dreaded 'barely black' but perhaps still a little too dark for my skin tone so next time I would like to try 'Bronze' just to compare but overall I am very pleased to see that Debenhams has made a range of hosiery which is inclusive of all races.
