Debenhams 2x Gloss Stockings

I am back into Debenham’s own brand, and I have some awesome stockings to review. This pair I was intrigued with, as they are super glossy and they had a vintage feel to them with the packaging they was in.

This is a pair that I purchased from eBay from a private seller, which they are no longer selling unfortunately.

I have reviewed this brand before; if you missed it, then hit the link below (opens in a new tab):

My Outfit

Another smart casual look, pairing up an oversized t-shirt with a faux suede pencil skirt. I added my court shoes to spice it up, but you can pair up with flats or trainers to tone the outfit back down.

The Review

The Packaging

 

On The Legs: let me just start off by saying that the gloss on these are incredible! I love that gorgeous glossy shine they have to them, and your legs don’t get lost in it all either. You can get some pairs that just frown your legs out, but these don’t do that at all. They work with the legs to create this amazeballs look!

The quality of these are great; they don’t snag easy and they have such a good amount of stretch to them. It hugs the legs really well.

The colour of these I have to say are a little lighter than I would like, but they aren’t too bad as some I have tried out before. I suppose the glossiness helps! I would have preferred it if they had a little more of a deeper colour, but I won’t complain as I got these cheap!

The fit of them were spot on; they were the perfect size for me, and there was plenty of stretch to them as well, so this could easily fit a medium size.

The feel of them are super soft and really silky smooth, both inside and out. They slipped on the legs easily and they don’t irritate the skin at all. You actually forget you’re wearing a pair!

 

The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes as shown in the packaging video. Unfortunately there is no image to show you this as we got too excited with snapping away, we forgot to snap the toes!

The reinforcement covers the toes at the front and back, and it doesn’t shade a darker colour which helps with open toe shoes and sandals.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move about, and it was a flawless fitted finish around the feet and ankles too.

The Bands: I have to say I was super impressed with these bands; I did not expect them to be like this. They are what you call ‘The Comfiest Bands Ever’ – they are so soft, so smooth and you literally can’t tell you’re wearing any. I was stunned with how nice they felt and stretchy they are so it fits around your thighs without squeezing them.

Another great thing about them is that I can sit them high up the thighs without feeling I am stretching them too much. It doesn’t alter anything with the stockings.

I cannot get over how comfortable these bands are!

My Thoughts?

Well this turned out to be a great pair – I loved all that gloss it has packed in and they are amazing on the legs. The quality is decent, they look fab and they are so comfortable to be in all day! I would totally recommend!
