I purchased these in both nude & black. I am short but I get the large, as for me they run small. They are great for ballroom and Argentine tango if you prefer bare feet with dance shoes. They look nice with a skirt and are very comfortable. They are more of a \\\"micro-net\\\" rather than the type of fishnet with the large holes. Nude is very subtle, while black will give a more dramatic look. Made in Italy.
