Yep that is right… I am on the white vibe at the moment … And I am finding it hard to be honest. White I always find so hard to pair because I feel it doesn’t suit me really, but I’m still willing to give it a go, even if it means I lounge at home in them rather than at work!

The Packaging:is just how Veneziana always do it. Very clean, to the point with the model wearing the hosiery along with the brand name and make of the hosiery.
The back of the packaging has a medium window in the centre showing the stockings through it along with the following on the side:
“Stockings for ladies, for a girdle, made of lycra, transparent, matt”
When you get inside, you find these neatly folded around cardboard ready to get on.
Getting Them On: so I did the scrunch and roll up, which was perfectly fine over anklets as long as they aren’t sharp. I would be careful of the cut out design on the band; make sure that doesn’t get caught or stuck anywhere and completely rip.
I used a belt which had rubber clasps that worked well; you can always use metal if you prefer.
On The Legs: “these sit so low on the thighs” was my first thought! These are mid thigh which means you will need dresses and skirts that will go to knee length and further to hide the top of the band.
They have a smooth finish to them which makes the legs look great, but the colour is just not my friend in my eyes!
The denier is perfect for those who want it to be slightly sheer and not so block white.
These stay in place all day (unless your clasp is loose!) so you shouldn’t have any wrinkle crinkle issues!
The Toes & Ankles: once again sheer all over. These are reinforced so I would be careful with longer toenails in these. They have plenty of wiggle room in them, however during the day I did start to feel pressure on the toes; the toe seam kept moving down which made it slightly uncomfortable around the toes. Not too sure if this is down to your footwear, but something to keep in mind.
Around the ankles, it’s a smooth finish here…
The Band: it’s a cute block band at the top with a cut out design a little further down. The clasps can hook onto these really well regardless of the material.
The band itself is comfortable, doesn’t leave any pressure marks on the skin afterwards and is just great overall!
Now the only downside to these is that I managed to slightly rip mine near one of the cut out holes, which I was not impressed with!
If you’re a fan of white, then by all means but I would have loved to tried these in nude or black instead where I would have felt more in my comfort zone and able to style them so much better.
The quality is decent (minus that little issue near the band) and they are great on the legs, but you all know how I feel about this colour …
