Now lets’ go slightly darker in denier with the Clementine tights from She-Store. Even though I do love my sheers, it’s nice to switch it up from time to time with some thicker deniers or different colours and patterns.

From The Website: Seductive fine tights with decorated seams. Thanks to these tights your legs become an eye-catcher! Noble 40 the pantyhose decorated with back seam and circular elements make these tights a highlight.
Semi-matt, with invisible reinforcement in the foot and bodice. Due to its increased proportion of elastane, it is particularly elastic and has a flat seam.
Material – 89% polyamide / 10% elastane / 1% cotton
Care instructions: Hand wash only at max. 40 °
The Packaging: is pretty basic, but it does the job here. The model wears the hosiery on the front, and the back goes into slight detail about them along with hosiery care and the sizing guide.
When you get in, you will find these flat folded and wrapped around card.
Getting Them On: I gotta say I did slightly struggle with these this morning. I was trying to line up the dots at the back of the calves, when I realised they sit so much further up the leg. I was so baffled this morning, but then just went with it. I have to say doing the line up was pretty damn hard this morning. It kept twisting a lot, so I had to pinch and pull a lot more than I usually do.
On The Legs: well let me get straight into it!
The denier of these being 40 does make them slightly darker, which does tone the back seam and pattern down in certain lighting. I wanted to show you how different it can be with and without flash, so you know what I mean.
The quality of these are superb; no snags, no issues, no runs or anything. They have behaved so well today which I am mega pleased about! There is also a nice bit of stretch to them as well so it does hug the legs real well.
The fit of them are perfect; there was enough stretch and length for my legs, but do check the sizing guide if you’re unsure. The feel of them were proper silky soft; they were so smooth on the legs with that real nice coating on top!
The design itself is quirky; it’s different, and I love that little twist it has going on too. It’s a simple backseam turned into a fashion piece without even trying to be honest!
The Toes & Ankle: now the toes are invisibly reinforced which is great and there is plenty of wiggle room for the toes as well. They can move, they can breathe and it’s all just amazing here!
On the soles, the seam starts from the toe seam and work all the way up, so do make sure that they are as straight as possible to begin with as it will help you throughout the day. Mine just wouldn’t sit straight so I had to make do.
Around the ankles, it’s a lovely smooth fitted finish.
The Waistband: so the waistband was pretty decent to begin with, until I found it digging in a little during the day and ruffling over itself (like shown below). It didn’t end up sitting flush as it did in the beginning, but never mind hey!
The band itself has a good amount of elasticity in them, which is great as you know it won’t be getting lost any time soon, and these sit great on the waist as well.
Overall I think these are cute and something simple, but slightly bold in its own way. I love the design which would sit on the centre of the legs if I was tall enough, but hey gotta make do with where it is.
