And hello December! I will be getting into some thicker deniers soon, but for now I can’t keep away from my sheers and patterns!
Now this is a great combo as I have the best of both worlds here – a mix of thick opaques and sheer tops with a suspender design to top it all off!
Size: 2 – Small
Materials: 90% Polyamide, 10% Elastane
I went all black and red once again with this pair to keep up with my tights; I paired a black t-shirt with my red and black floral skirt and added patent court shoes to finish off the look.

The Packaging: if you haven’t come across Adrian packaging before, then this is how it pretty much looks. The model showcases the pair on the front and the back goes into little detail about the pair, along with the sizing guide, composition and hosiery care.
When you get in, you will find these folded around plain card.
Getting Them On: well this was interesting, as it kept twisting and turning where the suspender straps are – but I managed to get them as straight as possible before I got my clothes on!
It’s fine getting them on over anklets as it’s thick and opaque here, so you won’t really have any issues (well I hope not)
On The Legs: well I love this design for sure. I love how you get a subtle hit of it at the front and when you turn around – BOOM! There it is; the backseam, the suspender design.
The quality of these are decent, but I do feel like it could be better. To me, they felt a little cheap when you touch them and the thinner denier on the thighs can snag super easy. Luckily, I didn’t get any but when you touch it, you can tell that it is the type that will ruin pretty easy if you’re not careful.
The fit of these are slightly true to size, to the point you have extra material. These were as long as my legs, which means that you end up with wrinkles – and that is what I got. I liked that they had enough stretch to hug the legs so it wasn’t hanging off me, but there was a little too much for my liking.
The feel of them were alright; they were smooth and a little soft but you can tell with the quality of them that these won’t last as long after a few wears and washes.
The Toes & Ankle: now I am happy to say that these have reinforced toes. I thought they would have them anyways as when you get thicker denier hosiery, you are kinda covered but it’s nice to know that it’s actually reinforced here.
Around the feet, there is plenty of room, to the point that I can form wrinkles around the ankles and that isn’t because my tights are falling down my legs! This has so much material to it along with a lot of stretch which means you get wrinkles.
This also means that you get plenty of wiggle room around the toes and no pressure was put on them either during the day.
The Waistband & Gusset: this is another band which comes up higher on me than it should. This went past the belly button, and sat inches away from it. I mean don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind but I also don’t want them to start rolling over itself creating little bumps under my clothing either.
I also tried to capture the back design (around the tushy) so you can see how far it works up the legs at the back and front.
The gusset to these are a small palm-size cotton patch in a rounded diamond shape (last image) which sit comfortably on the skin and moves with you.
These are such a great pair, but the wrinkles and the high waistband did miff me off a bit during the day. I just don’t want to faff around when I’m in a pair, and I was doing that now and again while I was in them. Other than that, I really love them and the design is just stunning!
