Back into Gabriella we go. This brand I don’ do enough of, and when I do I go mad with them. I did that last time when I got my hands on so many different styles for super cheap and it was Gabriella heaven!!!
If you missed this pair in action, I wore them in my Femme Luxe Clothing Review (Part 18) which you could briefly see under my clothing.

I thought I would dress these up for an evening do, even though you could always rock them to work if you’re not wearing anything fitted. I teamed u a floral skater dress paired with my peep toe pompom shoes to add a hint of cuteness to the outfit. I was gonna opt for my pink court shoes but changed last minute to these!
Dress: Cameo Rose
From The Website: Silvana is a wonderful addition to the Gabriella Erotica range. This is a line up of gorgeous items of legwear and one that is designed to bring sexiness and femininity to your wardrobe with all the timeless style and skill that Gabriella is capable of. And with Silvana, they have really outdone themselves. The strip panty is a timeless staple of the sexier side of lingerie, and this particular version is decked out with heaps of lace and rich decoration. This is one of their most head turning and decadent designs so far.

The Packaging: I really do like their packaging for this product. It comes in a slimline box and presented so well. You get the model wearing them on the front along with the brand name, model name and sizing. When you flip over you will find a little more information about them.
Now the best part, you can either pull them from the top or bottom and then lift up the lid to find your tights wrapped in branded tissue paper. Then you see these are packed in plastic to preserve the tights, with them wrapped around plain card to keep them in place.
Unfolding them out, these are flat footed so there is no leg or foot shaping to them.
Getting Them On: I had fun getting these on today, purely because I got my leg stuck in them a few times as I was rushing to get them on LOL! I got there in the end…
I did my usual scrunch and roll from the toes, over the anklets and then up the legs. I left them around mid-thigh got the waistband and rolled them up in place. It sounds like hassle, but it isn’t really when you’re used to the style of them.
On The Legs: well I am loving this gorgeous denier on the legs. I didn’t know what to expect quality wise, but I can certainly say these are amazing. They were much better than expected. They had a nice amount of stretch to them so I had a hugging fit all around. These will be easy to snag as I managed to get one at the front of my leg as it is super silky so it can easily catch.
I will also praise how gorgeous the legs look in them too; they have this semi-matte finish to the which means it gives the slimming look without trying too hard.
The fit of these are perfect for my leg length and width, and I would recommend seeing their sizing guide before purchasing just so you get the best fit. The feel of these are just amazing; they are so soft inside and out and they feel amazing on the legs. They are basic on the legs I know, and they are nothing special compared to other brands but I do like how they sit and move with you.
I also like how these have a lovely lace-type design a few inches before it works into a suspender. That adds a little something extra to them instead of keeping them plain and simple. You can choose to show these off or keep them covered.
The Toes & Ankle: bad news as these don’t have reinforced toes to them, so you will need to keep an eye on long/sharp nails to ensure no holes are being created whilst you’re in them. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move, and no pressure was added once I got into them.
Around the feet and ankles, it’s a lovey fitted finish with no wrinkles.
The Waistband: this is where it gets interesting. It’s the first time I have seen this strip-panty style with a silicone band around the waist. It’s one band that sits at the top to ensure that these stay up throughout the wear.
I have to say this did it for me; something that makes this pair so unique and work for everyone!
I can say I did not have any issues with my tights falling or moving out of place. I loved the band as it was comfortable enough to wear and it doesn’t dig in either. It sits nicely around my belly button without it squeezing me.
The suspender straps also sit nicely on the thighs without it marking up your legs. It will only do this if it is too tight for you.
Obviously the gusset is non-existent here as it’s open front and back.
I love this pair, and think they are wonderful to wear! I would certainly recommend these, whether you choose to wear them in the bedroom or out and about like I did. They’re versatile enough and can work for everyone!
