So we are back in Tezenis once again, but this time in micronets. I last did them with the cute fishnet socks, which were adorable. If you haven’t seen that blog, then hit the link below (opens in a new tab):
I got these from when I went to Budapest, and I was super excited about trying them out! I thought why not give these a go; I haven’t seen a pair of backseamed nets like this before. I was supposed to have worn these when I was out there, but I realised I didn’t bring my camera to take my images, so there was that.
Now luckily I managed to track these down from their website if you wish to purchase a pair yourself.
Materials: 92% polyamide, 8% elastane
As it was a little nippy when I wore this outfit, I opted for my jumper dress and red booties to blend it all in. I kept it proper minimal for work today – I was running late and didn’t have time to spruce myself up!
Jumper Dress: AX Paris
Booties: Marks & Spencers
The Packaging: as I got these from the shop, these were in open packaging, so you could see the front and back of the hosiery. Instantly you can tell that these are a rough net just to make it thicker and bolder on the legs (and a base for the gems at the back).
So the front is very basic; straight to the point and then back only goes into slight detail about the composition, hosiery care, sizing guide.
When you start getting into it, you will find that dreaded strip inside one leg of the tights, so please do be careful pulling this out so you don’t catch the tights in the process.
Getting Them On: lining up has never been so easy! As soon as you get your scrunch right from the ankle where the first gem starts, you are good to roll right on up. I had to make sure that they don’t catch one another and end up ripping, so you do need to go slow doing this. I didn’t use gloves doing this as these were thick enough (and I didn’t have time to faff this morning).
Over anklets these are ok, but they will mess with the anklets during the day. I know this as mine got caught in-between it all so I had to pinch and pull them out.
On The Legs: as these are a proper micronet, it means they will look pretty dark on the legs (depending on the light of course). These are real fitted on the legs, and that also means there is plenty of stretch in them too!
I’m unsure of the denier but you are looking at around 80+ to be honest, which helps to make them slightly stronger and hard to catch.
The fit and feel are great; the feel is pretty rough but it makes the fit better on the legs. It clings really well to curves, and there is minimal gapping as well.
The cute backseam is a nice touch on the back of the legs; it creates a playful look rather than the standard ‘ classy chic’ – I feel it works for the younger lot.
The Toes & Ankle: you will need to be careful with longer nails here. I was pretty miffed as my nails decided to chip as they were rubbing against my booties, but as there is no smaller micronet stitching around the toes to make them reinforced, I would advise to keep nails short.
There was plenty of room in these and I hardly had to pull them away from the toes to release any pressure; I did it once just to make sure the nets don’t rip!
Around the ankles, it’s a real flush finish against the legs. As these are really elasticated, they will fit the legs nicely, so you shouldn’t really experience any gatherings.
The Waistband & Gusset: now the waistband is pretty decent on these, but I have to admit when you decide to push them down, the immediately start to roll over themselves – I got myself into a right messy pickle doing this!
Otherwise the band is decent; very slim but doesn’t dig into you throughout the day (or how much food you consume!)
There is no gusset on these as it’s straight netted goodness, so not too sure if you would still go commando???
I think these are great; not badly priced, pretty quirky and well… They work with the current fashion hey!
The quality is decent as I have not managed to destroy these today; they have served me pretty well I have to say!
