Now I gotta say that I have worn these before (as some of you may have seen on my IG Stories a while back) but as I forgot to do a shoot back then, I decided to get back into them for the 2nd time (yay) so I can get the images for the blog!
This beaut I managed to pick up from eBay and I searched to find where else you could get your hands on a pair, however the only place I found was UKTights which no longer have them in stock!!!
I will still keep on searching and provide a link as soon as I can for you to be able to purchase them (unless you can get your hands on them from eBay)!
Materials: 92% Polyamide, 8% Elastane
Price: £6.99 – Now sold out!!!
I felt like getting cosy, and seeing as I bought some new Autumn colours (the jumper being one of them) I thought it would be great to mix it altogether and create a fall look. I paired my long lace shorts with these and added stone coloured boots to finish the look. You can always add tan, black or maybe some statement boots!
Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
From The Website: This is everything Trasparenze is about, distilled into one design. The mock stocking tops, the delicate florals, the seductive arrangements. Even the name captures what Trasparenze is about. These tights are a romantic design, there to look incredible and draw admirers’ gazes. Trasparenze has made something that takes people’s breath away with Romance Fashion Tights and they are certainly one of our favourite’s this season.
* 15 denier
* Amazing design
* Mock stocking
* 92% Polyamide
* 8% Elastane
The Packaging: as you can see the classic Trasparenze design, they always show the model with the hosiery on at the front and the brand name going across in the middle. The back is quite basic so you won’t find a lot of information about them at the back unfortunately.
When you get in, you get this lovely scent off them, which I love. This is one of my favourite things about Trasparenze!
Getting Them On: for the 2nd time round was just the same as the 1st. I took my time getting them over my anklets and then up the legs. These glided right on, especially that he stretched out a little so I didn’t have that ‘new’ feeling like I did before.
On The Legs: well that floral design certainly got people looking that’s for sure. I know I shouldn’t be in nude sheers, but when they look this good, I mean how can I not?
The quality of them have been so good; I haven’t had any snags or rips around the legs at all, and they are just like how I wore them the 1st time around. Normally when I do wear a pair for the 2nd time, they sometimes don’t last (it does happen from time to time) but these are just as great.
The fit of them are true to size, and that does not alter at all. They had enough stretch to them both times, and they fit so good on the legs too. I tugged mine slightly up so the welt design sits a little higher and not so exposed under my shorts.
The feel of them are really smooth, apart from where the lace design sits. You will notice that these have a net patch underneath them so they can look the way they do. It’s no biggie at all, but something to consider as I didn’t know this until I 1st got them on and realised it’s like a patchwork pair the way they have done it. The same goes for the welt part; that has a fine net underneath it.
The design I absolutely love and works so well with layers too. I would happily wear this pair with thigh high socks or long boots. They are super versatile and I can imagine how great they would look layered up! The design works from the toes to the welt and then becomes sheer all the way to the brief part.
Let me briefly mention the colour of these; they are cosmetic, which is like a nude but with a slight tan shade to them. They look a lot lighter in some images below, but overall they work for my skin colour.
The Toes & Ankle: well I am not impressed with the toe part. I managed to get a hole in them which started turning into a larger rip, so out came the hairspray to stop it in its tracks! I did not think wearing these for the 2nd time round that I would experience rips!
Other than that, I had plenty of wiggle room in them and no pressure was added during my wear either. They were really comfy to be in during the day.
The Waistband: well this is something I had to show off to you all. The panty design to these are simply stunning; they have 2 parts either side of the waist where you get this floral design like you do on the legs with the logo sitting at the top of it. The middle section of the front and back are plain black.
The band itself hugs really well on the waist, and sits around the belly button on me. They stay put all day and I had no issues regarding elasticity with them either. They are just as brilliant as they were the 1st time I wore them.
Both times being in them have been great, and I would certainly wear them again knowing that they can last. It’s a shame about the rip around the toes, but what can you do hey? I did love wearing them and that design is just gorgeous to dress up or down.
