Well well well.. We have something totally different hitting the blog this Friday. Something that I didn’t think you could ever come across! I am so happy to see something completely unique on the blog after a long time …
Now let me get writing…
Size: 1/2 – Small/Medium
Materials: 85% Polyamide, 15% Elastane
I wasn’t too sure on how to style this at first; whether I do shorts and see-through top. but as I needed a pair to wear to work, I decided to go for these instead and see what they’re like. I know I’m not showing it’s full potential but then again…
I kept it simple with my bodycon dress and added some cute statement shoes (which I recently bought) to spice it up a little.

The Packaging: now doesn’t this look interesting?! The front shows the model in all her glory in the colour that I have. The back goes into a little more detail:
“Ladies corset tights, decorated with elastic ribbon, hand-woven, tights on place keeps patterned ribbon-lace.”
When you get inside, these are flat packed folded around card. I will tell you now that this scrunch and roll is gonna take a while!
Getting Them On: so off I go slowly scrunching them as straight as I can to make sure that I don’t need to tweak them a lot when I roll them on. I gotta say that these do feel slightly tight by the time you get down to the toe seam but they were fine once you started rolling them up.
I started to lose my patience when it got to the top of my thigh as I still had to set the pattern on the thighs and then work with the bodice bit too!
I finally got there after 10 minutes of faffing about and voila!
On The Legs: now that they’re on and a day’s wear is done, I can finally let you know how I got on…
The denier is 20/40 – with the bottom half being 40. I have to say I wasn’t too keen on the denier; it looked really weird on the legs and there were these weird squiggly patterns which annoyed me so bad throughout the day. They weren’t this flush smooth finish on the skin.
The quality of them are pretty decent; I managed to snag them at the top of the legs which I was miffed about but luckily it was easy enough to hide.
The fit and feel of them were great; these held up well and clung onto the legs throughout the day without any issues. When you get to the top of the band, these did sit well under the bust and didn’t budge at all. The feel of them are smooth and quite soft; but some areas I felt it was quite rough and a little grainy.
The whole design is just to die for; I have never seen anything like this before in my life so I was dead excited to try them out! The bodice is just long although it’s not one that you can stretch real high (over your bust I mean).
The lace part is hidden under clothing (unless you choose to expose) and the ribbons don’t really do much apart from look pretty. These aren’t shaping or have any benefits; they just wanna look good and make you feel great!
As you can see below; these are a mock suspender look with the strap working from the thigh design all the way to the band. The back is a simple patterned design (I forgot to mention that before!)
The Toes & Ankle: around the toes there is room to begin with until you have spent a few hours in them. They do start to hurt as the pressure does build up throughout the day in these; I had to keep pulling it away from the toes to release it which was inconvenient!
Around the ankles these sit smooth against the skin J
I think this pair is so amazing and has so much going for it, but the let down was the weirdness of the look on the legs and the toes feeling unconformable in them. I love the way they fit and looked under my dress, but to be honest I would just wear this either in the bedroom or for a few hours in something casual.
