Roll on Day 2 in my Dita Stockings. I am super super excited about these as I love Dita Von Teese. She is absolutely stunning and knows lingerie (being the queen of it and all!)
This is a follow-on from yesterday’s review in Secrets In Lace ‘Dana’ Stockings (as I bought them both together) so fingers crossed I get on super with these well like I did yesterday!
Materials: 100% Nylon
From The Website: Dita’s Day Sheer is perfect for everyday wear. We selected a nylon with just the right amount of stretch to keep the stockings sheer while providing a nice cling to the leg. The sheer heel and lightly reinforced toe make these a perfect choice for sandals or any type of open toed shoe.
Please note that Dita’s Day Sheer does not feature her signature welt. It is made of stretch nylon, and will look more compact in the package – when you put it on it looks great.
The Packaging: like yesterday, it had that gorgeous tissue paper wrapping to it, and once you get in, you will find Dita on the cover of the packaging, with a little window so you can see the stockings through it.
The back is just the same as before; it has a little blurb about them along with the sizing guide.
Once you get into the inner packaging, you will find these wrapped around some dingy card; I have no idea where that colouring has come from and how, but the stockings were wrapped around it.
I also found these to be the size of my forearm with how small they are! I am hoping that the stretch on these are gonna be as good as yesterdays!
Getting Them On: right … I am completely miffed off. I decided to scrunch until I found some real weird markings on them. I put them over my hand to see, and I find some scratchy marks all over it at the top. I also find it’s like that around the foot area and partly lower legs which I am not impressed with.
Anyways so doing my scrunch and roll with my satin gloves on, as I don’t wanna wreck these any more than they already are. I took care going over anklets and up the leg.
I can safely say that these could sit higher, which makes it easier to wear something a little shorter without worrying too much.
On The Legs: I gotta say I am really disappointed in this pair. For the price you pay for the brand, this really isn’t worth it in my eyes. I found those markings all over the legs, mainly around the band and around the feet (I will go into that further down the blog).
The denier is great as it’s sheer enough to make your legs look gorgeous with minimal coverage. Let’s not go there with the quality; these snag and rip very easily. I am really annoyed with HOW EASILY it is to do so!
Seriously – I don’t think this is worth the money at all!
The fit and feel of them were good; they hugged the legs really well with the amount of stretch they have in them and they did feel soft and smooth on the legs. I didn’t have any issues with that.
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes have a lovely darker denier capping on them to act as a reinforcement, working into sheer goodness. These do have some wiggle room to them; not as much as you think you would get, but my toes weren’t cramped which was the main thing.
Now with the denier on the feet; I have those weird scratchy markings mostly around the bend; I don’t know if that has to do with them being stretched (not like I over-stretched them) but it didn’t look good at all!
Around the ankles, I once again had those markings, but no wrinkles so that’s the plus point.
The Band: the band itself is decent; it’s soft fabric where the clasps can grip onto nicely and hold them up with ease. They are soft and non-irritable against the skin and they fit the thighs so well. I didn’t feel like they over-stretched as some stockings do, but they were a lovely fit.
I seriously don’t know about these. I am so disappointed with them in terms of quality; I expected so much more from her collection, but these were a let down. Don’t get me wrong they look lovely on the legs despite of all that, but the price you pay isn’t worth it at all.
