And hello Wolford! I have to admit I hardly do any plain from Wolford, so this is an usual experience for me to be doing a plain sheer pair! Now the great thing about these are that they are a very low denier – and you’re looking around 5-10 (maybe more on the 5 side) so expect this blog to be a juicy one!
Denier: Around 5-10 denier
Materials: 93% Nylon, 7% Elastane
Website: Wolford – Aura 5 Tights
I glammed up for a night out for a change wearing my super sheer deniers! I paired with my kimono tunic dress and my wrap heels. It’s been ages since I have been last seen in this pair, so I am super excited to pull these out again!
Kimono Top: River Island
Shoes: Simmi Shoes
From The Website: A hint of glamour: the gentle shiny look of these ultra-transparent tights gives them an elegant tone and stands for accentuated restraint. They really come into their own when combined with evening and cocktail dresses.

The Packaging: basically what you see below is what you get. The model wears the ultra-sheer pair on the front,with the back going into more detail about the tights. One thing I always do is check the COQ (Certificate of Quality) to make sure that these are authentic.
As I unravel these, I see promo card and a damn snag! Like seriously! I wore gloves taking these out to make sure that I don’t create any unintentional ones whilst getting them on! So not a happy panda right now!
Getting Them On: so taking extra care now that these already came snagged, I took my time to get them over my toenails and anklets to make sure they don’t catch. These are seriously thin so I would advise a lot of care getting these on.
On The Legs: all I can say is wow! They look amazing! That denier is perfect for a lovely slight coverage on the legs to give that gorgeous appeal. I paired with statement heels which helped to emphasise it as well. I loved these as a base for my heels!
The quality is otherwise all good; I didn’t have any further snags which is a bonus. These aren’t stretchy by the way so make sure that you get a size that fits you. I found that these felt slightly tight on me, where the gusset started to pull away from me and sat slightly lower. I am normally an XS in Wolford, but I certainly felt for comfort I needed a Small.
The feel of them are super smooth and silky on the legs; they are something amazing I have to admit. To get a cute little shine on a low denier is not something you come across easily.
These have got to be my new ultra-sheer favourite!
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes are reinforced, which I am super happy about. This gives you that extra bit of security that your nails won’t be ripping through so easily. I found these comfortable around the feet, however slightly tight around the toes to begin with. It does loosen out slightly, so it wasn’t a massive issue in the end.
Around the ankles, it’s a smooth flawless finish 🙂
The Waistband: now the waistband is also reinforced which is great news! As much as I love this ultra-sheer vibe, I don’t want my waistband causing havoc by ripping or snagging easily. The band as you can see is pretty slim with a good few inches of reinforcement underneath.
These hold the tights up really well throughout the night, and it would have been even better if they could keep the cotton gusset flush against me but hey!
I gotta say I really do love these – a good quality pair of sheer tights to keep in the wardrobe as a staple piece. This is a great pair for those who like minimal coverage on the legs, or something to wear in the evening.
