Now today is Day 1 of 2 with my review; I am reviewing the hosiery today with the skirt being a separate piece tomorrow 🙂
Now as these weren’t on their website, I managed to pull them from a stockist for you. Details are below:
Size: 2 / Small
Materials: 86% polyamide, 14% elastane
Why do I always do monochrome? I realise that it’s the most easiest to wear, but when I look back at the images for the review I always feel so blah – I NEED COLOUR IN MY LIFE!
Anyways, I wore my box polka dot t-shirt paired with my ‘mini’ skirt and added my faded court shoes to finish off the look (and give me some colour!)
T-Shirt: Pull & Bear
Skirt: from Amazon
The Packaging: so this reminds me of a pair I did a while back > Gatta BB Tights
The front of the packaging shows the model wearing them in a nude colour, with the back going into detail about the hosiery:
“Women’s tights made of modern elastic braided yarns, with a comfortable panty and a non-pressure waist band.”
Once you get in, you will find these flat folded around card, ready to roll up!
Getting Them On: so I wore my gloves taking extra care over my anklets to get these on. They were dead easy to roll up, and I mean they literally glided right up my legs!
On The Legs: I gotta say they are a real good pair – in terms of how many times I nearly got them caught and didn’t snag! I was dead impressed here!
The fit and feel of these are real nice; they feel mega soft and smooth on the legs, and that matte finish really just gives it that gorgeous finishing touch. The fit of them are true to size; I didn’t have any issues with it being a tad bit small or big on me.
I am seriously crushing over this smooth finish on the legs you know! It looks too unreal!
One thing I didn’t expect was the boxer brief part; I thought it would have been sheer all the way to the band!
The Toes & Ankle: I have plenty of wiggle room in these, and no pressure is applied at all throughout the day no matter how tight those points might be on the heels!
I don’t think these are reinforced, so I would keep nails slightly short just to lessen the risk of poking holes through them.
Around the ankles, these have a gorgeous smooth flush finish to them and you won’t see any signs of wrinkles around here either (as long as you’re wearing the right size!)
The Waistband & Gusset: now this is a new one; I have no seen Gatta do a band like this before, and this is where the ‘comfort’ part comes into play. I gotta say that these were certainly comfortable on the waist the whole day. I didn’t experience any rolling issues, any elastic becoming loose or the tights falling down. It did feel like they weren’t on the waist to be honest!
Now let me move lower and to the back, where I find a massive rip and snag! I think this may have got caught on a zip or my nail (if I wasn’t being careful)!
The best thing is that it stopped and didn’t run into the tights at all; it stayed in the boxer brief part! The worst thing is that I now have to hairspray these to make sure when I next wear them again that I don’t end up making that snag and hole any bigger!
I think these are totally worth it, and if you can pick them up for cheap that I would seriously be pushing you to do so. I love the way they look on the legs, and how decent the quality is on them!
My only downside was the rip I created in the brief part, otherwise these are damn good!
