Now we take a massive turn and slip into some bronze 15 denier tights. I know – what am I thinking?
Nothing can stop me when I really want to be in a certain pair, and I am so intrigued to see how I get on in this pair. I have done the following not too long ago in black and loved them:
…so I wanted to see how these work out for me in winter!
Size: 2 – Small
Materials: 84% polyamide, 16% elastane
I have no idea what made me want to create this outfit – but I really love it. I thought it worked so well, and you can always add a beige or tan chunky cardigan or coat on top to really bring it altogether. I added the rope belt just to give me a little shape as the dress is cut straight which didn’t work for me.

The Packaging: well I have to say this is detailed as anything – to the point you can find out everything you wanna know before even getting them on the legs. It shows the model on one side of the packaging at the front, and then a load of information on the left hand side, the back of the packaging and also inside too.
When you get in, you will find these wrapped around card and flat folded so there is no foot or leg shaping to it. However, I will say I am intrigued by the waistband…
Getting Them On: I thought it would be good to show you the different the tights make on the legs, and it is a huge difference. I will go into more detail below.
Getting them on over anklets is fine as long as they aren’t sharp or could catch onto the tights in any way. I took my time rolling them up the legs and then setting them in place.
On The Legs: well let me just say how made up my legs look without even trying. I mean they look nicely tanned, flawless and no signs of any markings. Talk about a good cover up without being a high denier!
The quality of these are lovely; I had no issues in them at all and with the right care, I can see these lasting so well. These also have a nice bit of elasticity in them as well so they hug really well. I would expect that considering that they are giving a cosmetic look.
The fit of these are true to size, but I would recommend going 1 size up if you’re in-between sizes just so you have enough room without having to tug too much.
The feel of them are just divine; they are soft, they are super smooth and they are wonderful. I loved being in mine all day.
Now before I forget to mention, I did use a mix of flash and natural lighting so you can see the difference. These can easily work from day to night – and I know I can certainly be in them for 24 hours without any issues!
The colour is another big thing of mine; I love the way they give a gorgeous natural tan look. I love tans but I love them even more then they look natural and not like I’m wearing a darker colour (if that makes sense). You can get these in different colours, but I am loving the bronze for sure!
The Toes & Ankle: it’s a shame that these are reinforced toes, but it also means that you can whip out those sandals and open toe shoes (maybe not during winter though unless it’s an occasion or you just feel like it like I sometimes do). There is plenty of wiggle room for the toes to move about, and no pressure is added around this section either.
On the feet and around the ankles, these have a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkles to be seen.
The Waistband: well I said I was intrigued and here is why. These sit a lot lower down the waist, so the point my belly button is exposed completely. These would be perfect for those who prefer wearing them low or have skirts or shorts that require low-sitting hosiery so you can expose your stomach fully. I thought it was a great idea, but something I would really need to get used to. I wasn’t used to the fact that if I overate, my belly would be podging over my tights rather than in it, and you feel the band slightly lower than where you’re used to it being.
Aside from all that, I thought they were great. You get the same benefits as a normal band; they hold up super well, do not roll down itself at any point, have a hugging fit and is overall great! If you check out the middle picture, you will find these do have some sort of reinforcement to it before it works into the sheer for the legs. I really did like this concept.
I gotta say these are fab! I loved mine and I would certainly recommend them for sure. I felt the quality was great, the colour really worked for me, and the fit was just spot on. The best part is the lower waistband!
