Best seamless footed tights for performances?

I see lots of people with decently professional outfits and I’m trying to figure out what kind of tights to look for  so that I can figure out what works best. Here’s an example from an Alice in wonderland performance.

I would say just be prepared for lots of trial and hopefully little error!  There is so much variance in "fit" and "feel" you may end up experimenting with different "makes" and "models."  There is always something new and different to try, so hopefully you enjoy exploring different offerings from a variety of manufacturers and sellers.  I suppose most dancers have an assortment of maybe five or more different brands, just a hunch.

You might try the tights from Fuzi if you can get them.  Fuzi (a kid from the same village and class as Lu Cunxin, “Mao’s Last Dancer”) offers a great footed tight that has the seam on the side rather than the bottom of the foot.
