Merry Style 40D Stockings

Let’s bless the blog with some NEON! This is the first time I have ever reviewed such a bright pair of pink – I thought doing my Tramps Bryannna High Waisted Tights (Pink) was bright enough, but this really has outdone them all!

Here’s a little story behind them: when I was planning my 120k live review, I wanted to pair pinks with my Indian attire and I remember I bought some pink fishnet tights and these pair. I was supposed to do both in the review, but then just opted for the fishnets as they paired up better (in my eyes) and these were kept in the dark until now.

I wondered for ages as to why they were sitting there, as I had completely forgotten about them and when they popped up, I had to really think as to why I bought these in the first place LOL!

The Packaging: their packaging is quite basic with not much to it to be honest. As you can see from the images below, it’s pretty much just get into them and get them on really.

 

Getting Them On: I do appreciate that these have the foot shaping to them which makes the stitching on the welt sit at the back instead of having to find it yourself – it really does help when you’re in a rush to get them on too!

I took care going over my anklets and then rolled them up the legs. I did tug them up a little but not as much I would normally as these are quite a long pair.

On The Legs: I gotta say these are super neon! I love the way they look though – proper bright and so eye-catching! I know the colour won’t be everyone’s favourite, but it makes a nice change from black and nude to be honest. The bonus thing about this colour is that is can be worn anytime of the year; summer would work best for those bright and pastel colours and winter to add a pop of colour to a dark outfit.

The quality of these are great on the legs in terms of no snags, or runs. But I have to say (it’s really hard to notice) but these came with a slightly darker ink patch on the thighs. I tried to get a close up but it kept blurring on me, so I had to move the camera back and now  you can’t see it clearly. Otherwise these were great!

The fit is spot on; I got the right size for me, which had enough stretch for me to tug them up or roll them down. I would recommend checking the sizing guide before you purchase so you get ones that will be the closest fit to you.

The feel of them are lovely and soft. These don’t have any shine to them so are a lovely matte finish, which works really well and this is how they can be worn all year round.

The Toes & Ankle: as you can see, these are lovely and opaque around the toes and feet too! The toes aren’t reinforced so I would be careful with your nails, otherwise these are great! They are a snug fit around the toes and feet, have plenty of wiggle room and are super comfortable to be in!

Around the ankles, it’s a fitted finish!

 

The Bands: the bands have double silicone bands inside of them (I forgot to take an image of them for you all)  and hold up super well all day long. They stick to the legs really well, and don’t come away easily.

The band is quite deep, which worked for me this time but I would need to rethink with other skirts I wear as I wouldn’t want that peering. I do love that floral lace pattern which makes them ultra feminine.

 

 

My Thoughts?

I gotta say these are real good for what you pay, minus that weird marking on the right leg. I would happily buy these in various colours if the pink is this good! I am so glad I got to try neon out and I wouldn’t say never in the future!

  2. To start off lovely legs now I love the review and being that they are hold-ups is my type to wear. This neon pink I just adore what runs through my mind is could wear them alone or for a fantastic fashion look layering these over glossy tights. Am a big fan of wearing neon colors and these I want to buy myself to wear.
