We have a little side seam action going on today. I was going to pair it up with a floaty dress, but then opted for something a little different. I haven’t done Adrian hosiery in a little while, so this makes a nice change!

I decided to go super chic today, with a black bodysuit with my suede split skirt. I haven’t worn this skirt in so long, and I saw it this morning and I was like – ‘yep this is playing today‘. I added my patent heels to finish the look.

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets. I also had to keep any eye on keeping my side seam flowing nice and straight(ish) so I don’t have to go back and tweak it. Luckily I got both as symmetrical as possible before I set them in place.
On The Legs: I absolutely love this vine/floral design. This is a great design if you’re not a huge fan of florals, or just fancy a chance. I do like floral patterns for sure, however I do like something a little different from time to time – and these are great for that!
The quality is pretty good, although I did notice that I had some markings on the tights when I got them on. At first I thought I caused it, until I pushed them down and rolled up again and it was still in the exact same place. I don’t know why, but they have been lingering around all day. Apart from that, I have not had any issues with this pair. I managed to keep them snag free for the day.
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 lovely. They are silky smooth on the legs, so you shouldn’t feel any irritation. And they are lovely and smooth, so my skirt glides nicely against the pair rather than tugging at it.
The Toes & Ankle: so we have some visible reinforced toes, which cover all the toes nicely. This also means that you may find it peering through if you have some heels that show toe cleavage. I didn’t mind it to be honest, as it leads into the side seam design nicely. I would refer it start from the toe seam, but never mind.
The toes had plenty of wiggle room to them, and there was no pressure added to and around the toes during the day.
Around the feet and ankles, I had a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkles.
The Waistband & Gusset: so as you can see, the side seam design works right to the waistband – no need to compromise your outfit! I do love how gorgeous this looks; I know I won’t be showing it off fully, but believe me when I say I was staring into the mirror for a while just looking at the design!
So the waistband is great; it holds up really well and stays put against the skin. I had no issue of it folding down or rolling over itself in any way.
I also had a lovely amount of elasticity in the band, so it hugs the waist nicely. It didn’t feel tight or loose in any way.
The gusset sits flush against the skin, and doesn’t move during the day.
I really do like this pair. I love how well it works with this outfit, and it’s versatile enough to work with smart and casual outfits. I liked the quality (minus the markings) and the fit was spot on too. I would recommend this pair if you are after something a little different.
