I have to say I do love Pierre Mantoux. I rarely get my legs into them (sad times) but I gotta say that these are such a good quality brand and they have some amazing statement hosiery too – nothing that you could find anywhere else!
So I am looking forward to this review as we have a 8 denier pair to try today!
Materials: 70% Polyamide, 30% Elastane
Feeling this summer vibe so I thought I would pair my nudes with some nice light colours. I wore my suede t-shirt dress paired with my statement heels to create a simple office look!
Dress: AX Paris
Tights: Pierre Mantoux
From The Website: Veloutine has always been numbered based on its thickness, so what does Veloutine 0 mean? Simply, Veloutine 0 is so sheer, that it can hardly be felt on your legs. An 8 denier item with a 5 denier appearance, it’s difficult to tell whether you’re wearing the item or not, yet the rich colour of the item immediately brings a beautiful lustre to your legs. What’s more, to remain invisible, Pierre Mantoux have stitched the toes underneath, so that you can’t see the stitching from above. This is the most subtle, comfortable and lovely item Pierre Mantoux have ever released.

The Packaging: is so amazing! They go into so much detail – both on the outer packaging and once you get in. You will find a little bit about the tights inside on the back of the packaging as the front shows the model wearing the tights. When you get in, you will find the tights wrapped around card which gives you instructions on how to get your hosiery on to prolong their life.
Getting Them On: as these are super fine, and you can really tell when you do your scrunch and roll, I took my time (and whacked on my satin gloves) making sure that these don’t catch around my toenails and anklets.
On The Legs: can I just say how amazing these actually are?! These are perfect for summer to give you a lovely make-up finish on the legs, and thin enough so your legs don’t get too hot being in them all day!
They are so sheer it doesn’t even look like I have any on!
The denier is 8 but they really do feel finer than that, which I think is great for someone who doesn’t really like wearing thicker tights or is ore a fan of bare legs – this is the perfect pair so you get that gorgeous flawless finish to the legs and no-one will notice!
The quality is just BRILLIANT! Not one snag or rip throughout the day. These are pretty damn good! I cannot brag enough how a pair so thin doesn’t manage to get a snag – and I have been on my feet all day rushing around as well!
The fit of these is true to size, so do make sure you check out the sizing guide before purchasing if you’re unsure. I had a nice little bit of stretch in them as well, so they hugged my legs beautifully. The feel of them are so soft and so smooth – I just have no words.
The colour is something I was hesitant with first as it looked lighter than my leg colour, but once they’re on and give it 10 minutes not looking at your legs, it gives such a natural finish. It not added a subtle tan, but a lovely semi-shine as well which you can see when the flash hits it.
The Toes & Ankle: I think the only thing lacking is the reinforced toe part! That would have been the ultimate if these had them, but as they’re so thin it would be pretty hard to do so without it being too noticeable.
Around the toes it’s so sheer and so delicate, so I would really advise making sure your nails aren’t too long or sharp before you get your feet in. I had plenty of wiggle room in these and my feet could really breathe in them.
Around the ankles, it really doesn’t even look I’m wearing any!
The Waistband: now this is a great band! Not only does it hold up the tights so well during the day, but it’s so nice to be in. These don’t apply any pressure around the waist with that super comfortable thick band. It also has a reinforced section underneath which does help!
I gotta recommend these. One of the best low denier pairs I have come across which will work hand in hand with summer! I love the quality, I love the colour and I love the quality of them!
