Worked well for witch costume. I did not realize they would not be "nylon like" with a little bit of control. I bought the plus sized and they were too large in the waist/hips area. That's usually where the cinching is for me and I had to keep pulling them up! I felt like I was wearing old leggings that had no more elastic in the waist. But for 1 night, the price was good and they didn't run.
These thights are amazing! They are not too short which seems to be my problem when I buy costume tights. Also I am a size 10 with full hips so I did buy the plus size to have a quaranteed fight and I'm glad I did. They fight well, are comfortable and seem durable. They add that extra something to my Alice madness returns costume.
