Vienne Milano Tosca Matte Holdups

I know it’s a little weird to be doing thicker deniers this time of year, but with the weather getting upto all sorts, I decided to just rock them anyways.

Now this pair I was super psyched to receive; I have seen the on the models on Vienne Milano’s social media and they just look brilliant! I love that bold thick denier on the legs, with the contrast welt to them.

The Packaging: come as shown below. They are wrapped around their branded card, with the details on the sticker at the front of the packaging.

When you get in, you will find them flat folded so there is no foot or leg shaping to them.

 

Getting Them On:

 

On The Legs: I gotta say the denier on these are incredible. I love that these still have such a bold vivid colour which isn’t lost when stretched out on the legs. Normally others will become sheerer and then have the colour fading – these are nothing like that! It’s super striking and with a matte finish, I really like them.

The quality of these are always amazing; I do love Vienne Milano for that reason. They have a lovely amount of stretch in them so you can sit them a little higher if you wish and they hug the legs so well. These are pretty hard to damage as well; not that I have deliberately tried to today, but just saying based on the near misses I have had. As these are pretty thick and with the matte effect to them, it would be slightly harder to snag.

The fit of these are true to size, and I would recommend checking out the sizing guide before purchasing too. You want to ensure you’re not going a size smaller – as you want to keep that block colour running from toe to band.

The feel of them are really soft, and so gorgeous on the legs. They are really comfortable to be in, and also do retain a fair bit of heat too (being a thicker denier it will a little). They aren’t rough in any way, and nor do they irritate the legs either.

 

The Toes & Ankle: so I think the toes have this cute little reinforcement at the tips. It is super small, so not too sure if they are supposed to be or not. Anyways, you can always wear these with open or closed shoes, depending on your style preference. These also have enough room for my toes to wiggle about and breathe too. No pressure is added onto the toes or feet during the day either.

Around the ankles, it’s a lovely fitted finish.

The Bands: I do like the bands on this pair; they’re lovely and thick, hold up so well on the thighs and stay in place until you move it. A lot of people may disagree with a contrast thick band like this, but I think it looks amazing instead of the standard lace you get.

It doesn’t irritate the skin at all, the silicone holds up well all day long and doesn’t lose elasticity either. The band itself also does stretch a little (not much mind you) which allowed me to sit them higher.

My Thoughts?

I do love this pair, and that colour is wonderful to pair up with any outfit. I know 50 denier is a little thick, but this is perfect for those who don’t like showing off skin or love thicker deniers for their own reason. I love their quality, I love the style and I would recommend them for sure!
