Adrian Blink Tights

Let’s bring on some shiny tights, because I have missed reviewing them. At one point it was all I wanted to wear, as they instantly glammed up any outfit I wore. This time I wanted to choose something a little more feminine and a style I have seen around London a few times.

This pair was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist – and all detail are below.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: these were so easy to roll onto the legs this morning. They went over my anklets well, and it was such a smooth glide right up until I had to set the waistband. I had no issues whatsoever.

On The Legs: so I had to take quite a few photos because these were just so nice to be in! One they make my legs look flawless, and not only that they have a great shimmer to them too when the flash hits them. These would be perfect for those Christmas parties coming up f you’re after something subtle. I love how versatile these actually are – and how amazing they blend with my skin tone.

The quality of this pair has been so good to me throughout the whole day. I have not managed to snag them at all; and to be honest, as these blend so well with my skin, I doubt you would be able to see them even if it did happen. They have been a dream to be in.

The fit of these have been great. These are true to size, and there was enough elasticity in them to give me even leg coverage, with no gapping. I would advise going a size up if you are in-between sizes.

The feel of these are fantastic; they are so silky smooth and so soft to touch. My skirt could glide past as I walked without it being tugged at. Plus it’s hard to not keep your hands from rubbing them. These also don’t irritate the skin; as these are not made from lurex but have a shimmer to them, these are fine against the skin.

The Toes & Ankle: so as much as I like reinforced toes, I just wish they were invisible as these would have totally made them! I feel a thick reinforcement like this with a shimmer pair makes it hard for them to work with sandals or open toe heels. I don’t mind it if these were more for everyday wear, but for parties it would’ve totally rocked if the toe reinforcement was less darker than what you see here.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added either.

Around the feet and ankles, it was a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: and this is one part that I wish they made it slightly better – and I certainly wouldn’t have anything else to complain about. The waistband area is ok; it’s so basic and this is something you see on cheaper hosiery. It comes with a reinforced boxer brief, so keep that in mind when wearing shorter clothing.

The actual waistband is not bad; it does have elasticity to it, however it does dig in slightly during the day. It does sit well on the waist until it decides to squeeze the life out of you, and it does have a tendency to roll down on itself so it doesn’t sit flush under clothing.

My Thoughts?

As much as I love the whole look and how they glisten, these are an ok pair. I would still recommend don’t me wrong, but I didn’t appreciate the waistband and the reinforced toe was just a little too big for my liking on a pair like this.
