I got my hands on a pair of these super cool leggings. I haven’t really done sheer leggings before (or if I have I must have forgotten) but I am even more excited as they’re a Wolford pair.
Anyways this pair was gifted by a good friend of mine to review and here we are…
Colour: Dark Jade
Materials: 89% polyamide, 11% elastane
Website: Wolford – Satin Touch 20 Leggings
I wanted to create a really funky look, and something I haven’t done in a very long time. I paired up a oversized t-shirt with these leggings, added some statement heels and one of my oversized hats. I also added a necklace (for a change) to spice it up!
T-Shirt: New Look
From The Website: Wolford classic with a trendy update.
These leggings, made from the same supple, shimmering material as our legendary Satin Touch 20 Tights give the winning finishing touch to endless summer looks. The wide waistband featuring a logo and knitted selvage guarantee exceptional comfort.

The Packaging: these come in a slimline box, with the model wearing them in a white colour. The back goes into a little more detail about them, where you will also find the quality control sticker. When you get inside, you will find them wrapped in branded tissue paper wrapped all nice nice!
Getting Them On: I got these one like I would with a pair of tights; I did my scrunch and roll and then rolled them up the legs and set in place. I sat my leggings as full length instead of sitting them higher up the ankle.
On The Legs: just a heads up that I had some fun and added flash to some of the images to show you the little sparkle they carry.
The colour of these are stunning; I wasn’t too sure how they would look but I gotta say I love them! Even with the flash on, they just look incredible. This is why I wanted to pair it with some colour to really make them pop!
The quality of these are amazing; I didn’t snag or rip them (thank goodness) and you get what you pay for with these.
The fit of these are true to size. As these came in XS, I got that sheerness to them. However, if I went 1 size up, I can say they would be darker in colour and not be so sheer as they are now due to the extra material. I would advise to check the sizing guide before you purchase, or maybe go one size up for a darker and less sheer colour.
The feel of them are great; they are smooth, they are super silky and they just glide off one another. They are such a great pair of leggings and I am certain the tights version would be amazing too!
Around The Ankle: now these have some great elastic to it. They sit in place without moving all day. Another great thing about these is they don’t leave elastic markings on the ankles; it has a band just like the waistband where it hugs the legs so well without marking you up after wear.
You can sit these high or low on the ankles, and they will stay in place. I did mine lower just for the sake of it, otherwise I would sit them a little higher.
The Waistband & Gusset: just like their hosiery, the band on these are great. They are nice and thick around the waist, and have plenty of elasticity in them as well. They sit around the belly button and stay up well all day. They also have reinforcement just under the band which I am super happy with.
They also come with a cotton gusset, which is palm-sized and sits flush against the skin!
I absolutely love these and the way they look! The quality is always spot on, and they fit so well too. I would certainly recommend these!
