Well hello new brand – and seller! So as I am not able to get my hands on a real pair of Gucci tights, I thought I would try some faux ones (I don’t like say fake), from a company which sells them in one size. This would be a great pair to try out before you invest in the real thing!
This is a pair (well I bought 2 from this brand) to try out as I didn’t want to spend huge amounts of money on a pair of hosiery. I mean as much as I would love to, I don’t have the funds to be doing so and my blogging doesn’t pay me to get them either.

I had to dress this pair up; I went with my mesh lace top with an ivory bralet underneath, and I added leather shorts to give it that edgy look. I paired up with plain suede court shoes to finish off the glam look.

On The Legs: I gotta start off with the design… I am loving them! They are a great netted pair, and with the added GG sign mixed in with the dotted diamond design, it just looks incredible. They are pretty much exactly the same as the Gucci pair, however they have made slight tweaks to them (the GG sign mainly) which are barely noticeable. This works so well if you wish to dress them up like I did, or wear them with something a little dressed down. Either way, this has become my favourite pair!
The quality of these are not bad for a knock-off pair, but I will say they are made in China. You can tell as the toes I had to turn inside out, and the waistband could be a lot better (I will mention more further down). They are decent, that’s for sure but in terms of longevity, these won’t last.
These are also a one size fits all, which means they have a great amount of stretch to them to hug the legs. You can tell as mine haven’t stretched out as much so you get this even design, but the more it’s stretched out, the sheerer the net and design become.
The feel of them are a soft net, which I was surprised with. I half expected a rough finish to them that irritate the legs, but not with this pair. I was super impressed with that, and that meant I could be in them all day without having to worry. You can easily enhance these by wearing a pair underneath, however I didn’t this time so I could show you what they are like on their own.
The Toes & Ankle: so I had to turn the tights outside in, as the toe reinforcement part was sticking out the wrong way. This is how you know they are a cheaper pair and made in China, as they are made that way. Around the toes, I had plenty of wiggle room and my toes did not feel cramped at all.
Around the feet and ankles, there were no wrinkles and it was a semi-fitted finish. They fit well but it could have been a little tighter.
The Waistband & Gusset: as I am not showing the band on me, I will say they sat around my waist (just around my belly button).
I also found that the waistband isn’t as fitted as I would have liked it to be; it was a little loose but still held up ok as I had shorts on. If it was just a dress, I would have felt them slipping down slightly.
I do like the fact the design works right to the waistband, so you can wear shorter clothing with this pair.
These also do not have a gusset to them; it is just a stitch in the middle, so I would advise underwear is worn with this pair.
So not bad I have to say, but I don’t think I would pay that amount of money again for a knock-off pair. I felt it was a little too steep for something that I could find cheaper elsewhere online if I researched hard enough. Apart from that, I did like the look of them and thought the quality was ok overall. I would recommend if you’re after a cheap pair that you know won’t last long, but I would say invest in the real thing! – I know I will be 🙂
