Pringle Matte Finish Nude Tights

I would like to apologise in advance as there won’t be that many images on this blog. I was abroad (in Antalya, Turkey) when I wore these out and the lighting in the room in the evening isn’t the greatest at all. I didn’t have time to get the shots done earlier in the day, which resulted in limited images.

Now Pringle is a new brand to the blog, and I picked these up from TKMaxx when they had a few available in store. I doubt they are available now, so I have added a link below where you can purchase a pair from (if you’re quick)

The Packaging: so as you can see below, the packaging is pretty simple and doesn’t give too much detail about the pair. The front shows the model wearing it in the colour natural, and the back goes into a little detail.

When you get in, you will find these folded neatly around card.

 

On The Legs: well to my surprise, I didn’t realise that these have a semi-shine to them. I thought they were fully matte, so I wouldn’t get a shine however having the flash on shows that they actually do!

I have also done some images where I am wearing them on one leg and the other leg is  bare so you can see the comparison as to how they can transform your legs. I felt during the day they were too light for my skin but in the evenings they worked really well and actually enhanced my skin colour.

The fit of these are true to size with a little stretch to them, so if you are unsure I would check the sizing guide or just opt for going 1 size up. These do hug the legs well, so you wouldn’t get them wrinkling at the ankles or falling down if you went 1 size up.

The feel of them are really smooth and super soft to wear. They were a great pair to be in the whole day in moderate heat. For a matte pair, they have a lovely coating on them which makes you wanna run your hands up and down them.

The quality of these are superb; I didn’t find any snags or rips whilst I was in them at all and they had taken quite a bashing too (with all the bags I was carrying around and rubbing against my legs) so I was really pleased with this pair overall. I expected them to be slightly damaged as I wasn’t being careful in them today to really put them to the test – and wearing shorts so my whole legs were exposed.

 

The Toes & Ankle: as you can see below, these have a sandal toe to them, which means you won’t see any reinforced sections here. It works perfectly with open toe shoes or sandals like you see below which makes it easy to wear with almost every type of footwear.

I had enough wiggle room for my toes to move around without feeling squished in these, and they were comfy around the feet and ankles too.

The Waistband & Gusset: is pretty simple and does the job well. It sits around the belly button on me and stays put all day long. I had no issues with it falling down at all, or it rolling over itself. These were snug on the waist and didn’t squeeze it at any point either.

The gusset on these are a small piece – around palm sized.

My Thoughts?

Overall I think these are a good pair to have; they surprised me with that shine when the flash was on them. I thought they were good quality and worth the money too. I wasn’t too keen on the colour, but I know if I went for black these would have been amazing!
