Roll on Day 2 in Eleganti with another copper pair! These are supposed to be plain compared to the diamond sheen I did yesterday! This means that they won’t be as glossy (BOO!)
Size: Small (4’11”-5’3″, 150-160 cm)
Materials: 100% Nylon
Now going vintage like with my midi swing polka dot dress paired with patent peep toe white heels. I thought it was such a cure combo!
From The Website: Genuine 100% nylon non-stretch fully reinforced heel and toe (RHT) stockings made on the original vintage machinery. They’re made from the same classic yarn as the Eleganti fully fashioned stockings, but they’re seamless.
These are slight seconds but should be eminently wearable. You can return them for a refund if you’re not happy!
Slightly imperfect Eleganti RHT stockings at a great low price.
The Packaging: so as these are seconds – which means that they have imperfections to them, they came in very basic plain packaging, where you can fully see the colour of the stockings through them.
When you get in, you can see these are folded over card with the legs and feet shaped (I love it when they do this). I have also taken photos before I got them on so you can see that these already have snags and pulls throughout them – a little sad about that but hey… It won’t stop me!
Getting Them On: as these are imperfect, I wouldn’t worry too much about the hosiery gloves with these. I still wore mine because I’m in that habit of doing so, but it’s not a massive deal. I did my usual scrunch and roll up the legs and stopped where the nylons dictated that I should. I sometimes forget that with 100% nylons that they don’t have any proper stretch to them so they just sit where they are designed to.
On The Legs: they look incredible! The colour is completely different to the ones I reviewed yesterday and they were copper too! These have a much darker slightly brown-y orange-y hint to them depending on the angle you’re looking at them.
The denier is just great for that sweet leg coverage where it’s looking more like a tan than it does hosiery!
The fit of them are just perfect; they shape to my legs so well and I had no issues with any parts stretching out around the legs. I normally get this issue with the bands, but can’t even say that was the case this time!
The feel of them are just gorgeous; super soft and super smooth to touch. Your legs really do glide in these which I really like!
The colour is something I was keen on the begin with, and in the images the look divine. But out and about, every time I looked down my legs did look pretty orange to be honest which I wasn’t really feeling; I didn’t feel it suited me. But then again the outfit plays a big part in colourings too! I might have to try these with a brighter coloured outfit to see if it makes a difference!
Now the quality would have been great if they were perfect pairs rather than ones that were quality controlled and didn’t make the cut. I don’t mind to be honest but I would prefer the amazing non-snagged version!
The Toes & Ankle: the toes and heels are reinforced which means you don’t need to stress to much with long nails in these. There is plenty of wiggle room in them and no extra material on the sides either. The heel reinforcement is great; a cute little cover on them!
Around the ankles, there is no sign of wrinkles whatsoever which does make a change from the vintage stockings I have done previously.
The Band: super soft, super smooth and stay up so damn well! I cannot say anything bad about these as they did the job so well; they didn’t stretch out during the day making it looser on the thighs, they held up well in the clasps and didn’t wriggle out at any stage and they are super comfy on the legs.
As I mentioned before, these sit quite high up the thigh but I prefer that so I can wear shorter skirts if I wanted without having to worry about the band showing through.
I need to get myself a pair of perfects!!
