Back into Calvin Klein we go, and this time I picked up a little bargain. I managed to get these for £4.99 instead of full price in store. It’s a shame they didn’t sell these online otherwise I would have put the link below so you wouldn’t have to pay full price!
Now these are a slightly thicker denier for summer (I know they should be light and thinner) but I was eager to see what they would be like!
Colour: Nude / Sun Kissed

I wanted to go slightly more glam today with my outfit, considering the weather is quite nice. I wore my cream ripple top paired with my satin skirt, and added my peep toe shoe boots to finish it off. I was going to wear tan/stone coloured shoes with these, but went against it and opted for pink instead.

The Packaging: as I got these from TKMaxx, these don’t come with any other packaging. I had to thoroughly check all around that I don’t pick up a damaged pair. Luckily these looked alright!
The packaging itself is very minimal, and getting into these are pretty straightforward. When you get in, don’t forget to remove that long piece of card inserted into one of the legs.
On The Legs: I have to say these are quite nice for a thicker denier. I used a mix of flash and natural lighting so you can see the difference. I feel these would totally work for summer if you are conscious of your legs and want a smoother finish; I felt these gave really good coverage on the legs.
The quality of these are real nice too; very smooth and silky to touch. I had no problems being in these all day; no irritation, no tugging up or pulling down, no signs of any snagging or rips.
I felt these were great, and if you wanted to keep your legs a little warm, this denier is great to do that! Normally I am usually quite cold, so I only start wearing less when the weather is like 18 degree plus, but I felt these tights did keep some warmth locked in which was great as it kept my legs feeling snug throughout the day.
One thing I really did like is that subtle shine they have when the flash hit them; it was something unexpected but I really liked so you’re not getting a full matte pair!
The only downside was the colour of them; I forgot to take a bare leg and tights covered image in these; but as they are quite a dull sandy colour, it didn’t really work with my skin colour. I felt it dulled it down quite a lot rather than adding colour to them. I feel these would work better on lighter skinned individuals. I mean they don’t look that bad, but me personally I felt the colour was a little off.
The Toes & Ankle: as you can see, these are a lovely smooth finish around the feet and ankle. The toes aren’t reinforced, but as these are a thicker denier, you should be ok with longer nails as long as they are smoothed at the top.
I had plenty of wiggle room in these, with no extra material at the sides of the toes. They were lovely to be in for the day.
The Waistband: now the band got me when I first saw it. I didn’t expect it to be honest, but what I do like is that it acts like underwear so you can easily go commando.
The front and back is the same, where the denier is thicker and reinforced, with the gusset incorporated into them. I thought it was such a neat idea, and so comfy to be in as well.
The band never lost any elasticity no matter how many times I tugged and stretched it out during the day. It’s also super smooth and such a lovely fit around the waist too!
I gotta say this pair is so worth it, minus the colour of them! I loved the way they fitted and felt on the legs, and especially around the waist. I feel these can be worn any time of the year as the denier is thick enough (and also if you’re brave to do nudes in colder months!) I really loved being in these today!
