Oroblu Azalea Tights

Moving onto the next in the new Oroblu collection are these gorgeously stunning pair!  These caught my eye on Twitter and I just had to get myself a pair, along with a few others from their collection!

Now bearing in mind that I wore these when it was a dull day, raining throughout most of it so I tried my hardest not to get any pavement splashed on them to keep them looking pristine!

My Outfit

Yep we went all bright and colourful hoping that Spring will take notice of me and come quickly!

I wore my cream top tucked into my cerise pink high waisted skirt and added patent grey heels. I don’t know why I went with grey; I suppose I couldn’t find my nude pair and thought these were the next best thing! LOL

I kept my hair down and curly and added small earrings.

The Review

From The Website: These are a lovely pair of light and airy sheer tights with a floral printed pattern all over.

15 Denier

Cotton gusset

Flat seam

89% Polyamide, 11% Elastane

 

The Packaging: once again very crisp and clean, and (it sounds weird) but the packaging feels really soft to touch as well!

The front is all basic white with the model wearing the hosiery in greyscale, with the back giving you the lowdown on the hosiery:

“Sheer tights with floral printed pattern all over. Flat seam. Cotton gusset.”

Getting into them, they’re neatly wrapped around cardboard flat packed so you can slip them straight on!

Getting Them On: I advise hosiery gloves with these as they are super delicate and the last thing you want is a run going down them! These are easy to get over smooth anklets, so anything sharp I would be extra careful getting them over it. These are so quick to get on; after pulling over anklets, I literally pulled them all the way up and job done! I didn’t have to spend time adjusting! I am normally careful with my hosiery but from time to time, I do like to be rough with them to see what they’re like.

The best thing about these is you don’t have to worry about the floral pattern being symmetrical to one another; just roll up and get going!

 

 

On The Legs: oh gosh! I am loving the way that they look, and I have to say a lot of my colleagues did as well. All they kept going on about was how lovely they looked with the skirt and on the legs!

Now the colour wasn’t to my liking ot be honest; it made my legs look a little pasty-like (it won’t with the flash being on of course!) but in natural daylight I wasn’t really feeling them.

The design is printed on top, which I think looks stunning. There are certain parts where they have added glitter glue to it to make it just super cute and feminine! Perfect when the sun hits them and just glistens away!

The 15 denier is just right for Spring/Summer I think; it gives you good leg coverage and thin enough to wear when it’s warm too!

Once again the quality has not failed me; these have had no snags or pulls throughout the day and they have been durable as anything, which is always nice to know! I decided to pinch and pull the floral design during the day from time to time just to check it out, and no disasters!!

 

 

The Toes & Ankle: I have to say I am impressed. They’re completely sheer across (with a slight toe strip), so peep toes and open toe shoes can be worn without it looking too weird if you’re worried! There’s plenty of wiggle room in these as well, and no added pressure on them during the day in tight shoes! Normally you can with some hosiery where your toes actually ache, but you certainly won’t with these!

Around the ankles, there is no creasing, especially with the print as well. I thought there might be some, but nothing whatsoever!

 

 

The Waistband: is hardly noticeable and it actually stayed flush on me all day! They were so comfortable that I forgot they were on! I had a lot of toilet breaks during my day, so perfect way to test them out, and I have to say they got 10/10 from me! The elastic is very decent in these, so you don’t ever have to worry about these falling down!

They are sheer all over, with the band being a slightly thicker and denser colour but it’s all good under clothing!

 

 

My Thoughts?

I am loving this pair, and I would even buy another in case anything happens to these!

✓ Love the quality

✓ Love the design

✓ Love the denier for Spring/Summer

✓ Loved the durability

✓ Loved how the print wasn’t transferred on the opposite side or peeled away

✓ Truly loved everything about them apart from the nude colour

One thought on “Oroblu Azalea Tights

  1. Not sure about this one. The pattern looks rather chaotic to me. And the red in the design actually makes it look like you have cuts on your legs. But perhaps they would look different in real life. Normally I quite like patterned hosiery. But in this case, I’m not so keen. I like the skirt though.
