And hello new brand! I have seen this company pop up a few times on my social media and it’s not until now that I get to do a review for them!
They were kind enough to send me 2 samples from their classic range; the black and the nude, so I thought it was best to start off with the black (of course) and then save the nude for another day 😉
Now if you haven’t heard of this brand before, I managed to get a bit from their website about them, and the link below will take you there for more information!
About I See Your Legs
”In many ways, I love simplicity in life. Also when it comes to wardrobe essentials – such as classic tights.
I was frustrated by two things in the legwear market: too many choices in an unfit lifestyle packaging.
The mission was clear: to develop trustworthy high-end classic legwear packed in a smart Danish Design packaging to fit the legwear lovers lifestyle. I believe that by bringing practical values into packaging we inspire and stimulate the use of legwear in our fashionable society, where legs are considered attractive and physically appealing regardless the gender or culture.
That’s how we got started – let’s evolve together from here!”

The tights have an even matt appearance, with a slight sheen.
The Packaging: I haven’t seen anything like this before! Cute, shiny and WATERPROOF! I mean like how awesome is that?! And with it being that small and cute, these can easily be popped into your handbag or gym bag without it looking so obvious!
So the front is quite plain; straight to the point basically and then the back goes into a little more detail:
“I SEE YOUR LEGS brings you the solution to easily carry along tights with will secure your outfit at any time.”
“Sheer Body / Flat Seam / Cotton Gusset / Reinforced Toe / Shaped Leg”
You can always find a massive lowdown of it all on their website (I only put a snippet above)!
So to get in, these have a laser cut opening, so all you do is tear and you’re in. Now it gets interesting … These are rolled up, and when you unravel, you find their cute business card inside. I swear I am really liking this!
The card states: “Congratulation to have purchased an original I SEE YOUR LEGS product! These simple instructions will help you maintain the quality and fit of the tights unchanged.”
Once rolled out flat, you can see these are shaped to the feet and legs, which means these are gonna fit great on the legs!
Getting Them On: so hosiery gloves at the ready and let us scrunch and roll! I always do to make sure that I can get an even finish on the legs and not pull up too much or leave material hanging near the ankles.
As these are made to your clothing size, you should get the ‘perfect fit’ … And I have to say I really and truly did!
Oh and let me mention that these smell just like Trasparenze tights; they have this newness smell to them. It’s hard to explain but when you purchase your pair, you will know exactly what I mean by this! – And this scent lasts all day!!
On The Legs: oh boy! I am in love… Like you think they’re just sheers but wait until I tell you what they feel like…
So the denier is 20, and it’s a lovely look on the legs. My legs were covered evenly with my weird patchy markings.
The finish on them are matte, but they do have a subtle shine to them in the light which I really love. I love matte on the legs as it gives it that slimming look, and these just looked perfect against my dress today!
Now the fit… Perfecto! No falling down, no gapping, no tightness anywhere on the legs, feet or around the tushy. I am loving how well these actually hug the legs. Throughout the day, I found that they stay put and don’t wiggle around (this can happen when your legs are cold or dry so anything they rub against will move them)!
Now the feel – something a lot of people don’t tend to notice but plays a big factor for me! I have to like the way they feel on my legs; I don’t like grainy, I don’t like rough, I don’t like irritation from the yarns where you feel the need to itch all the time …
And you don’t get any of that with this pair!
I love the way these feel; soft, silky, smooth, irritation free and the hands can easily roam without any worry of getting snags.
Now speaking of snags, I have to say the quality is amazing; they haven’t snagged at all during the day and I have to be honest; I have been pretty rough with them to test this out. Don’t get me wrong, they’re not indestructible but they are a decent quality pair if you’re after durability and longevity!
The Toes & Ankle: so these are reinforced, as you can see with the strip going across the toes, which I love. Not only is it practical, but it gives that little touch to them, so if you wanted to wear with peep toes or open toe shoes, it would look pretty ‘vintage’ I like to say. Not many people are fond, but I think they are pretty cool!
There is plenty of wiggle room around this area, and not once was pressure applied against the toes (meaning the tights weren’t pulled too tight so the toes are aching) which I am certainly glad about!
Around the ankles, you have a lovely smooth flush finish against the skin; no wrinkles or extra material floating around this area. I hate it when hosiery does that!
The Waistband & Gusset: and it only gets better. This is on the lines of a Wolford waistband – no kidding! It is so comfortable I actually forgot I had one on my waist!
It’s a nice thick sturdy band which lightly hugs your waistline, and has enough elasticity in there to keep it from loosening after stretching a good few times. I did put it to the test today by pulling them down and up, stretching the band width ways and length ways… I was impressed!
The tights are sheer from toe to the band, which is perfect for those who wish to bare as much leg as they can!
The gusset is a normal-sized one (around 2-3 fingers put together) and isn’t blended into the hosiery (meaning it’s white and not black), so you can easily go commando if you wish with ease.
Blessed is the word I am after; that I actually have a pair in my collection! I have no idea why it has taken me so long, but I am so glad I got the chance to review them!
I love the fit, feel, quality, durability and certainly how they look on my legs. You wouldn’t think a simple plan pair would be that good, but trust me you can tell a good quality pair on the legs!
Right, I have to try out the nudes tomorrow. I was gonna wait a week or so, but now I need to get them on the legs!!
