So this pair is one that was gifted by a follower, and one that I cannot seem to find anywhere online. I have spent around an hour or so trying to get links so you can see for yourself but I do apologise as it’s a pair that was around a good while ago and no longer available.
Anyways, so this pair I am totally intrigued by as it’s something so different and haven’t come across before, which wants me to get reviewing these ASAP!
Denier: Around 20
Price & Website: Unknown
So let’s smarten it right up with a turtle neck t-shirt paired with a high-waisted bodycon skirt and then added peep toe heels! I also added drop earrings as well to give it a little something than studs do.
Top: New Look
Tights: Pierre Mantoux
The Packaging: their packing is simplistic, effective and straight to the point. The front shows the model wearing the hosiery along with size and colour stated at the top with a peep window.
The back has a bigger window where you can fully see the hosiery along with a sizing guide.
Inside these are wrapped around cardboard which states the following (I have copied this from a previous review as it’s always the same):
“Congratulation, with Pierre Mantoux you have chosen a pair of tights of the highest possible quality. We are sure that you will be satisfied by your choice. A product of high value like tights from Pierre Mantoux should be treated with the utmost attention and great care. Following our recommendations how to treat them you can be sure that they will remain in perfect condition for a long time.”
Then you will see a pictorial…
“How To Put Them On. Always remember to remove jewellery with mountings and edged stones from your hands before putting on the tights.
Now roll then completely up that waistband and toes come close together. Now you can begin to put them on, starting delicately with one of your feet.
Stretch the tights carefully over the calves and up to the thigh and then do the same with your other leg. Now you can pull the tights carefully to the waist.
How To Take Them Off. Starting with one leg roll the tights with your both hands carefully up to the ankle and slip them delicately off.
How To Store Your Tights. Keep them accurately upfolder where you also store your lingerie, if possible protected each by any kind of envelope. Always protect them with a special kind of envelope when travelling than keeping them unprotected in the luggage.”
“Warranty of Quality. With more than 70 years of experience Pierre Mantoux dedicated all its skills and care to manufacturing a perfect product. The employment of only premium quality and innovative fibres, of advanced technology and of skilled workmanship result in silky-soft yet resistant hosiery of the highest possible quality: Pierre Mantoux hosiery excels in product finish due to the particular care of ultimate details like flat reinforced seams, reinforced or nude toes, preformed, gusset and exclusive waistband.”
Getting Them On: when you unravel them off the card, you will see these are shaped to the legs and feet, which means they are gonna be a snug fit for sure (I love this by the way)! Make sure you scrunch and roll and take special care over anklets that may catch onto them too, especially with them being lace! Also you may want to try and get your line up sorted as you do this so it saves you having to roll back down to do it again! I managed to get it right the first time but then messed up near the top! DOH!
On The Legs: oh my god I am loving this! I didn’t realise it was a fine net on the legs; I thought they were just sheer! It completely changes everythhhhiiinnnngggggg!
So the denier is super fine here. It gives a gorgeous coverage so you’re still able to flaunt your legs and with that fine net, it helps to define them too to make them look amazing. I am so glad these are net!
The fit and feel are just great; they fit so well on the legs and there is not one bit of gapping to be seen either! The feel of them are soft and only slightly grainy (which is understandable).
The quality of them are just fab; I managed to scrape the bottom left leg (which I have circled) but otherwise these have lasted so well during the day without any hiccups!
The design has so much going on, yet still looks so amazing. It’s a tights and holdups duo going on with an added backseam which just sets it all off. I am loving it to the max! I think it looks stunning and you can work with it in so many ways. You have the comfort of tights – yet they look like holdups with that deep lace band. I am seriously crushing over these! The seam works right from the foot to the top of the band, which is super great for those who want to opt for shorter attire!
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes don’t have any reinforcements, and the wiggle room is pretty tight here too. But nonetheless, this means sandals can be worn to show off the netting across the toes! It looks so classy and subtle compares to fishnets to be honest, and that’s one thing I love!
Around the ankles, these are flush against the skin with not one sign of any wrinkles (I would be amazed if there was as these are skin tight!)
The Waistband: so I did’t manage to get a pic of me wearing these as I was running out of time, but the band is super slim and then goes into the fine netting with the backseam at the back.
These sit around the waist (belly button area) and they stay up so well during the day too. I love the way they fit and feel as they don’t squeeze you which is always great when you’re in them all day, and it has plenty of elasticity in them too!
I think these are absolutely stunning and I wish I could get a link for you all to purchase a pair. I am so happy that I managed to review them and show you what they’re like on. This is one of my favourite brands anyways as their quality and durability is amazing!
