    I would just like to point out that that the copy for tweeting is 4 characters too long for twitter and I had to edit it to fit – twitter wouldn’t accept it as it – but GREAT tights, I love it when science is fashionable!

  • Diana Hernandez Ph.D

    Agree with Adrienne, had to delete “Enter” so twitter would take it ;-) Love the tights, hope I win :-)

    Tie dye with start print, that’s pretty cute.But I personally don’t prefer these type of tights as we don’t get too much choices of tops with this tights.
