And we have a great brand on the blog today to celebrate Valentine’s Day! I haven’t reviewed Eleganti in so long, so I am pleased to be slipping back into a pair that was kindly gifted by a good friend of mine.

Now I loved my last Chocolate pair (Gio RHT Stockings (Chocolate)) that I am so excited to be back into the same colour once again!

I wanted to dress it up for a Valentine’s dinner today, so I went with my 2-in-1 dress and added some statement heels. I paired a simple waist belt and added some gold drop earrings to finalise the look.

The Review

The Packaging: now this is what you call vintage packaging for sure! The front shows the brand name and the model. The back has a little more detail to it as what pair is inside.

When you get in, you will find these wrapped around card and folded so you have foot and leg shaping to them.

 

Getting Them On: so I thought I would show you the difference when the chocolate colour is on the legs against bare. It looks like a super dark tan on one leg, and I think it looks amazing when paired with the right outfit.

I took my time working them up the feet and around the ankles, before I pulled them up and clasped them in place.

On The Legs: in most of the images below, you will see creasing and wrinkles as these were a little long for me, but I still wanted to rock them like that anyways, especially with a fitted dress. I felt they looked great like that, and even classier with the backseam thrown into the mix.

The quality of these are amazing; I haven’t manage to damage them once and they have been serving me well whilst I’ve been in them.

The fit of them are a little long for me, but even then I could always fold the bands and make them shorter – I chose not to do that and just embrace the wrinkles and creases instead!

The feel of them are amazing; they are so soft and really smooth to touch. They are just a pair you can’t stop touching or playing around with because they feel amazing.

Now the colour I know I pretty dark when you compare it to my arms, but I am telling you that these look incredible! Chocolate is clearly the way forward! To set them off further, a pair of long satin gloves to cover most of the arms would look incredible.

 

 

The Toes & Ankle: well we are working with an amazing contrast again. I love the darker reinforced sections, which really makes the stockings pop. I chose a pair of heels that will show them off as much as possible, which includes the sides, front and back of the foot.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move freely, and there was no pressure added on the toes and feet either.

I do love the detailing on the feet, hence why I went super crazy on the images for them!

Around the ankles, there were a few wrinkles but they blended in quite nicely against the heels.

 

The Bands: once again I have slightly larger stockings on me, which meant that I couldn’t get the bands to sit flush against my skin like I normally would. Anyways… I have some great bands on these with that thicker denier so the clasps can hold on well. I love the simple design they have to them, which can work so well whether you choose to hide them or show them off.

These fit my thighs well and they stay stretched out once you’ve spent a good amount of time in them, so getting them on the next time round they ill fit perfectly.

My Thoughts?

I’m so glad I finished with this pair. I fell in love as soon as I got them on the legs. They feel amazing, the colour looks great against my skin colour and I love that vintage feel to them. I would certainly recommend them!
