Now there is a little story behind these as to why I bought them to review. One of my followers had sent me these on another female, and suggested I should get them. As soon as I saw that post, I went on the hunt as quick as I could. I loved the way they looked and I wanted to get myself a pair to try out.
Size: 2 – Small

I wore my mini dress today, as I wanted to match the welt with my heels, plus it was a nice day to do so. You can always make these casual by switching the heels to white pumps or some flat shoes instead.

The Packaging: if you have bough various styles from Fiore, you will know that their packaging changes depending on which collection you purchase from. This is part of the Golden Line range, so the packaging will vary from Femme and the normal collection. The front shows the model wearing it in a nude colour (I purchased black) on the front, and the back goes into very little detail about the actual pair inside.
When you get in, you will find these flat folded and wrapped around card.
Getting Them On: what I didn’t realise about this pair is that these have a mock suspender strap part, which makes this even more interesting. I took my time to line up at the back (it doesn’t help that the seams on the foot are super wonky to begin with so you will need to move this into place yourself) making sure that they are straight as possible and then match the bands up so they are symmetrical. Then I had to make sure that the suspender belt stays straight at the front of the leg as well before I can finally set them.
Oh these are fine going over anklets as long as you take care doing so 🙂
On The Legs: can I just say how alluring they look?! I certainly didn’t expect it to come out looking like they do!
The denier of these being 20 really does help set off everything; the welt, the backseam and certainly the suspender belt.
The quality of these are great; I didn’t manage to get any snags or rips whilst I was in them today which is a bonus. Even though these are quite fine on the legs, they actually are decent.
The fit is true to size, with a good amount of stretch in them so you don’t need to tug at these whilst getting them on. If you’re unsure of your sizing, I would recommend going 1 size up just in case. They shouldn’t be baggy on you but give you a little more stretch and room. The feel of these are super soft and real nice to touch; they are smooth from the toes to the welt, then you get this raised lace texture and back to sheer smoothness again.
The design is really nice; the front is quite simple which I like with the back having its own limelight with that simple backseam. What I do love is that it turns into a suspender look at the front only, which I thought was a lovely alluring touch to them. When I saw it on the model previously, I think she must have hid that part so I thought it just stopped at that chunky welt, but was I wrong!? I do love this design and it’s such a gorgeous piece whether you wish to show it off or keep it concealed…
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes come invisibly reinforced which is great (this is always the case with Fiore) so you don’t have to worry too much about rips happening here. There is also plenty of wiggle room in these, and no extra material at the sides either.
Around the ankles, it’s a smooth fitted finish.
Under the feet, you may be able to see that the seams are slightly wonky and not sitting straight as they keep moving throughout the day, which means it causes slight issues at the heels. So I had to keep an eye to make sure they weren’t going out of place!
The Waistband: yep that is a bear in the way for obvious reason. I should have done a beaver or cat lol!
As you can see, they have the french knicker design which is on the front and back of the tights. This acts like a reinforcement for this area, which is great if you wish to go commando at any point in them.
I also wanted to show you a snippet of where the suspender belt ends – see how it isn’t stitched into the panty part, which I thought was interesting.
The belt itself is pretty comfortable and doesn’t dig in at all during the day. I had no issues with it at all, and it held up really well too.
I gotta say these are simple but effective, and a great pair to add to your collection. I would certainly recommend these for sure!
