So I wanted to style these for work… But then I decided against the idea and went for a casual look instead. This look I did more for an evening out – but casually rather than dressed up like I normally do.
Now these beauties are a rare find if I am honest; I haven’t come across anything like this before, so I was dead intrigued to see what they’re like on the legs 🙂
Now I have to say these aren’t that different from the Twenties tights that I reviewed a while back (apart from the fact these are leggings)…

The Packaging: if you haven’t come across a pair of Wolfords before… They always tend to have crisp clean packaging, with the model wearing the hosiery on the front and the back goes into more detail about the pair, sizing, hosiery care etc.
Once you get in, you will find these folded around promo card. Normally they tend to be horizontally folded, but as these are netted leggings, we won’t be getting any of that this time.
On The Legs: so these start off the size of your forearm, which means these will have some serious stretch to them but enough for your size, so it’s crucial to make sure that you get the one that fits you before you buy.
The fit of them are spot on; they are perfect for my height and leg size so I’m pretty pleased with that. As I mentioned above, it is important to make sure you either get your size or go one up if you’re not sure.
The feel of them are grainy (as you would expect) but slightly soft – if that makes sense?! They are easy to catch and snag, so you will need to be careful wearing these out and about.
The quality I never have an issue with at all – I always find Wolford make their hosiery in such a way that they know what will stop it from catching or snagging… Seriously.
As leggings, I think these are pretty funky, but I personally would find it hard to dress these for work unless I wore these with boots rather than heels. I think that’s why I chose to wear them casually instead.
The Ankles: as you can see below, these are a super thin and very fitted elasticated band. I have to admit I did find it slightly tight around the ankles when I first got them on. Throughout the day it wasn’t an issue until I had to take them off and I saw this horrible ring marked on my ankles!
I mean I suppose it gotta be fitted to stop the leggings from riding up or falling down; I just didn’t expect it to be so tight to begin with!
The Waistband: and not one single issue arose here! I always love the wolford band; it’s comfortable to be in all day long without feeling like you’re being squeezed or like they’re about to fall down. It’s a good fit around the waist and it never loses elasticity quickly!
I gotta say these are pretty funky, but a hard pair to work with. I would need to try these out a few times with different outfits to get a better feel of what would work.
Otherwise these are pretty cool and I would recommend 🙂
