My Outfit

I went with my shift dress (which I haven’t worn for so long) paired with my polka dot sandals to keep the legs looking as playful as possible. I didn’t fancy adding just simple black shoes!

The Review

From The Website: Hardly anyone can resist these chic tights because of a funky mix dots pattern. The dots immediately catch everyone’s eye and no matter whether classically elegant, playful or with a romantic touch. The tights adapt harmoniously to your individual style. The tights are with gusset, high wearing comfort and a good fit. Sheer tights. Perfect to work, party or everyday use.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: these were super easy to get on, and a right doddle to roll up too. I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets.

On The Legs: how cute are these polka dots? I love that you have various sizes dotted around the legs, and they’re scattered really well to give a playful look. I would love to see these in a skin shade with coloured dots, but black will do for now. It gives me dalmatian vibes, especially when paired up with these sandals.

The quality is pretty good, although I did notice that I had some markings on the tights when I got them on. I have to say these didn’t go away at any point. Not only that, I managed to snag these TOO easily – so I had to take extra care wearing these today to make sure I didn’t cause any more damage.

The fit of these were true to size for me, and I had plenty of stretch in these for my leg length and width. I would recommend checking the sizing guide before purchasing. I had no parts where I found gapping around the ankles or knees, or any wrinkling either.

The feel of the them are nice; they are silky smooth on the legs, so you shouldn’t feel any irritation. And they are lovely and smooth, so my dress glides nicely against the pair rather than tugging at it.

The Toes & Ankle: normally I have reinforced toes with this brand, but this time they are not present! I am working with a sandal toe, which is great for pairing up with sandals, but I had to make sure my nails were super smooth before getting them on this morning.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added during the day either.

Around the feet and ankles, there was a smooth finish with no wrinkles.

The Waistband & Gusset: this could not get any better for me! I have this sheer to waist coverage, that allows me to wear anything short without a boxer brief peering through.

It then leads into a thin waistband, which actually does the job great. It doesn’t squeeze the life out of you, it holds up really well and stays put until you move it. The only issue here is that these curl over themselves, which is super annoying as I was really hoping they would stay flat with no problems.

My Thoughts?

I love how fun these are, but it’s a shame about the quality of this pair and how much the band is an issue at times.
