And the finale is these badboys – the gloss! Now seeing as both previous reviews were supposed to be matt and then came out looking glossy when the flash hit, I can’t even begin to imagine what this pair will be like!
Today the weather isn’t so bad, not so grim, tad bit windy but the sun is out so it’s ok to get the legs out in nudes too without having to wear long boots! … It also saves the weird looks I get sometimes too!
Now to mention before I begin, these are a size Medium that I’m doing!
Colour: Havana Glow
Materials: 89% polyamide, 10% elastane, 1% cotton
I decided to dress like it’s spring by opting for my floral dress (I had to wear a slip underneath as it’s mega see-through) with my grey patent heels. I left my hair down and just added some pearl studs to keep it simple and classy for work.

When They First Arrived: so I will be putting this section in the next few blogs as I review their hosiery as I had all 3 delivered at once.
I was super impressed with their packaging as they have their own little logo on the address label.
Getting inside, I received a lovely card from them along with a promo card talking about the brand and what makes them unique.
One thing I LOVE that they do is that they colour code their hosiery; the blue wrapping was for confidence, the purple is for ambition and the pink is for radiance – and they matched their tissue wrapping to the packaging!
The Packaging: the front is a drawn model wearing the hosiery but it’s a lovely darker shade on the legs rather than the normal lighter skin models. The back delved into a little more detail about the hosiery (sizing, hosiery care, the denier):
Cotton gusset with flat seams.
Sheer reinforced toe.”
Getting Them On: so once again these are one size bigger but I am half expecting them to be like my previous review on The Ambition Matt Tights where they turned out to be amazing on the legs!
These were folded vertically and have a subtle leg shape to them, which means these are gonna be a beauty on!
I used the scrunch and roll on both legs, as these are really delicate and silky, so you will need to take care getting them on.
On The Legs: I can’t complain – these are just gorgeous. They are so silky smooth, they remind me of CDR Vidrio and Eterno that are simply amazing. My legs glide off one another and they look absolutely incredible. When I was walking into work, I looked down and it literally looked like bare legs with an oil finish.
The way they feel and look is just amazeballs; when you run your hands down them, you can tell these are amazing quality and don’t catch so easily. The look is just to die for; these are certainly a pair I need to wear again in summer when the sun is fully out to give my legs that gorgeous shine without even trying!
The denier is incredible; you wouldn’t think that these are 15 at all when they’re on; they look more like an 8-10 if anything and that is the beauty about having it matching to your skin colour! It just makes it look so natural like it’s barely there.
The Toes & Ankles: so far so good here to be honest. The toes are reinforced which is fab so those who wish to wear them with open toe footwear, and there is plenty of wiggle room in them too so they don’t feel any pressure put on them during the time they’re on.
The ankles don’t have any extra material crinkling around them which is fab stuff; I’m amazed at that due to these being one size bigger, so can you image how well they would fit and feel when you have got your exact size?
The Waistband & Gusset: well these sit really high on me to the point they are under my chest! I’m not too sure if that is down to these being a size bigger but then again it’s not a band that you would feel. I have to admit I actually forgot that the band was sitting that high due to it being so comfortable and snug on. It has plenty of elasticity in them and they hold up the hosiery so well during the day too!
Now the only downfall I had with these is that they started to roll down a little by the end of the day.
The gusset is a cotton one, smooth to feel and non-irritable too, giving you plenty of air flow! I can’t say I trialled it out that way but I still got to feel it through my own underwear.
After doing the 3 ranges they have to offer, I really do love this brand. I love the way it matches to my skin and gives it a nice tanned glow look regardless if I went for matte or gloss; they do their job!
I love the fit and feel of both Small and Medium in these and find that they look stunning on.
The denier is perfect for summer coming up, so I would certainly recommend.
Overall I am so pleased with these, and so glad I got to give them a go and add to my collection. They’re really good hosiery that I can see lasting to be honest!
Thank you Sheer Chemistry!!!
