American Apparel Sheer Luxe Back Seam Hold Ups (Pink Sand)

So after the 1st black pair of holdups decided to let me down, I wanted to give the another go. I felt I was a little critical (even though they weren’t upto scratch in my eyes) so I chose to slip into another pair, but in a different colour.

Now I won’t go into a huge review with this pair as they are exactly the same as the black pair, so this will act as more of a picture blog with little input from me.

My Outfit

I didn’t know how else to dress light pink holdups, so I decided to go for a white halterneck dress paired with pink strap sandals to funk it up a little. I thought it worked quite well 🙂

Getting Them On



On The Legs

The only difference with this pair if the colour and they have a backseam to them. I have to say the quality wasn’t as bad this time round. I felt these were slightly better than my last pair.

The fit is still the same and so is the feel of them.

I do like the backseam; it is a darker denier which really does stand out at the back. This starts from the reinforced toe and works upto the band.


The Toes & Ankle

I also felt the reinforced toes were better too; they were equal on each foot. Everything else was just the same as the last pair.



The Bands



My Thoughts?

I prefer this pair over the black. I felt they were marginally better and the colour is lovely too. It’s a pale pink but works so well with light coloured clothing. I would recommend these over the black pair any day.
