I am super excited to give these a go. Not only are they 10 deniers but I manage to get these in the sale for 75p (which is an amazeballs bargain). I would like to think the quality will still be good considering you’re paying such a low price for them, but we shall see how we go!
Size: 2 / Small
Materials: 85% Polyamide, 15% Elastane
Price: £2.99 / Sale 75p
Quite summery today with the outfit, considering it’s pretty breezy outside today! I wore my cream ribbed bodycon paired with my skort (they look like a skirt but they are shorts) and added my bandage heels to finish off the look. I did pair up with pumps before (you may have seen it in my Instastory) but I ended up changing it to heels instead.
Bodysuit: Pull & Bear
Skort: River Island
Heels: Follow Me (Gifted)
Necklace: off Ebay
From The Website: Fine, silky tights with cotton gusset, without separated panies’ part, sewed with flat seam.
The Packaging: I will let my images below do all the talking for me. What you see is what you get from when they arrive to getting them ready for your legs.
One thing I will say is that seam is super bent – I have no idea why but this is gonna be fun(!)
Getting Them On: I wanted to give them a go without wearing hosiery gloves to see what it would be like. I get not a lot of people would own those as they don’t see hosiery like us enthusiasts do.
These were fine going over anklets as long as you stretch out a little and roll over slowly. Otherwise they glide right up the legs with ease.
On The Legs: I used a mix of natural lighting and flash so you can see the difference in colour, the additional subtle shine they have and the overall look 🙂
The denier being 10 means these are gonna be like a 2nd skin on the legs, and super delicate. They will add more of a natural finish rather than looking pretty thick and obvious – not that I mind, but I know a lot of people prefer lighter deniers for that make-up finish look!
The quality I must say is so good! They have been such a godsend today with all my running around. I didn’t encounter any snags, any rips – absolutely nothing which I am super pleased about. A part of me did think due to it being a thin denier, there might be a chance that these could just be a pair I wear for a day then chuck… But I can tell you that wasn’t the case at all!
The fit of these are true to size, so if you’re unsure just check the sizing guide and potentially go one size up if you’re in-between sizes. These do have a little stretch but not much if you’re an in-betweener. The feel of them are so soft and super smooth on the legs; I even creamed my legs beforehand (and let them dry of course) and they still glided up so well! Normally hosiery tends to get tugged a bit when it rubs against creams and lotions, but not this pair!
The colour I wasn’t too sure to begin with, as they did make my legs look slightly lighter than what I wanted, but when you’re out and about with natural lighting on them, they look great. You don’t realise that the colour then blends with your skin tone creating a more natural look – so I’m pretty pleased with it.
The Toes & Ankle: these do have a slight bit of reinforcement to them (you can see that faint strip going across the toes) and as it’s a lighter denier, you can easily pair up sandals and open toe heels with these. I had plenty of wiggle room in them throughout the day and they gave me no issues!
Around the ankles, you can see how light the denier is when they’re resting on my anklets. A lot of people thought I wasn’t wearing and this was one way of them checking that I was!
The Waistband & Gusset: the waistband was annoying at first as I had to make sure it wasn’t squiggly at the front, which meant the back had a bent seam (not that I was fussed). These sat around the waist on me and were amazing. They hug so well (not feeling tight either) and they stayed put until I had to take them down.
They don’t lose elasticity quickly either, which is great if you’re the type to down litres of water each day and have to run to the bathroom every so often!
The gusset as you can see is very lightly supported; it isn’t a cotton one but more of a reinforced area (if you like) so you can go commando if you like and be able to feel comfortable.
I gotta say these are so worth it – and as they are currently on sale I would invest in a good few pairs!
