I am slipping back into some Gabriella holdups, and I can see it has been a good while since I have been in this brand. Now I was toying on how to dress these, and I decided to go girly with them.
Thank you to whoever gifted these off my wishlist!

Yep I’ve got my hands on a new dress, and I wanted to show it off today. I paired up this floral number with pink suede lace up heels to finish off the look.

On The Legs: excuse my weird arms here; I was twirling and well… this is what I do lol!
The quality of these are great; they had plenty of stretch to them so I could sit them higher up the leg and they don’t snag easy either. I too care whilst being in mine, which always makes then last longer than a few wears.
The fit was true to size; they fit me so well and I didn’t have any issues with it not fitting well. They hug the leg as they are supposed to, and they sit where I want them to as well – winner!!
The feel of these are soft and super silky on the legs. They were super easy to slip on and off, and they don’t irritate your legs either.
I have to say I like the colour of these; they suited my skin tone so well! I liked how it looked like I was bare-legged and you could only tell when you look up close.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with invisible reinforced toes to them, and they would be perfect to pair up with open toe shoes and sandals. I had plenty of wiggle room, so my toes did not feel cramped whilst I was in them.
As you can see around the feet, it has a fitted finish and the ankles have no wrinkles either. It literally looks like I’m not wearing any!
The Bands: can you see why I was debating on how to pair them up with that triple band design? I wanted to go sporty, but then decided against it and went with super girly instead. I know that is such a huge contrast but I liked it – and it’s not like the bands are o show under my dress either.
I do really like that design, and it works so well with that thick satin-feel band. These hold up really well on the legs, and the silicone bands stay put until you prise them away from the skin.
It has one thick silicone bad sitting at the top, which basically is all you need. I didn’t feel like needed more for them to stay put; I felt the one was enough.
A great find and blog for sure; I really liked these and thought they worked well with my skin colour. I liked the quality of them and the sporty design is something you can either hide or show off with your outfit. I would recommend these for sure!
