My Outfit

I went smart casual with my outfit today; I did also have a black suede jacket to put on top however this was staining my t-shirt a lot so it came off and hanging off my backpack in most of the images below. Once again I am walking a lot, so comfy footwear was needed.

The Review

From The Website: This is the very first control item from Andrea Bucci and it is exactly what you might expect. High quality materials and a rich satin sheen combined with a shaping effect that makes for an all round winning design. These tights also have a comfort waistband for an effortless fit and extra control around the brief for a fully sculpted figure.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I did my usual scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care of my anklets as I get them on. They easily glided up the legs before I set them in place and worked the control top.


On The Legs: I gotta say I love the colour of this pair; they enhance the legs so well and that glossy shine is to die for! I got to experiment different lighting conditions to show you all what they look like when you’re out and about. I like how they match my skin tone well and add that slight tan-ish colour too; it makes all the difference.

The quality of these are amazing; they have lasted all day without any issues, so I am super happy with that. I even managed to put them to the test by holding shopping bags on either side that have been scraping and bashing against my legs – still no sign of any damage! These do not snag or rip easily, which is a big bonus point.

The fit of these have been great; I had to go for a size medium as they don’t have any small available, however I felt the fit was spot on. I had plenty of stretch in them to get great leg coverage without tugging my tights up whilst getting them on. I also found that it was even coverage as well, so it wasn’t bunched or stretched out in places. I would still recommend checking out the sizing guide, however I don’t see any harm going one size up if you prefer a pair of tights with a lot of stretch to them.

The feel of these are super silky smooth; both inside and out. They have this gorgeous glossy coating on them, which makes your hands slip down the legs easily. They don’t irritate the legs in any ways, and they have been a pleasure to be in all day.

The Toes & Ankle: now I am loving the fact these have reniforced toes, which are invisible! The great thing is you can easily pair these up with open toe shoes and sandals, without having to worry about a visible reinforced toe. You can’t tell with normal lighting, but when the flash comes on – it really glistens!

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and these did not feel tight around my toes or feet. Around the feet and ankle, you can see below it is a smooth, fitted finish with no wrinkles.




The Waistband & Gusset: I haven’t shown the waistband, however I did want to show you where the control top starts on me. This is quite a light control top (I know a lot of people will say I won’t need it – I like reviewing all types here) which you don’t feel as much as others. However I do feel it does slightly flatten around my waist. You can’t tell as I am wearing a thick skirt, and this would have worked better with a bodycon dress or something similar.

It was comfy enough to wear all day without it feeling like I was being squeezed around the waist. It sat around my belly button and stayed flush against the skin all day, without it rolling over itself.

The gusset on this pair fits against the skin very well too, giving you the option to wear with or without underwear.


My Thoughts?

I have to say I really liked this pair; it fit so well, it looked amazing on the legs and I love the quality of Andrea Bucci! This is perfect for those who wear hosiery on a daily basis to work (for example) and want something that works with all outfits. I would happily recommend this pair!
