Antie Patterned Hold-Ups (Fuchsia)

Well I am certainly happy to have this brand back in my life to do another review on. It has been quite some time, and I have to say this brand is not bad at all in terms of quality. I won’t give away too much now so get scrolling loves!

Now this is gonna bug me, but let me just tell you these are not holdups – they are stockings which require a belt. I do not know why they state the as holdups

My Outfit

I decided to go a little feminine but a little more laid back. It’s super easy to pop on some heels, but from time to time, it does make a nice change to be in flats for once. I thought this would be a great outfit for those warmer days when you’re out and about.

The Review

From The Website: Luxurious stocking with an intricate pattern on the upper part for strengthening.
Effectively attracts attention with the print on the back which resembles seams. The thickness of 20 DEN makes the stockings thin and transparent.
However the use of the special sewing process made with braided fabric gives them a superior strength.
Invisible toe strengthening make it successful when wearing with outdoor shoes.

The Packaging: so we are working with simple yet bold packaging. I like how the pink pops out at the top of the packaging. The front states the brand, the size and colour of the pair inside. There isn’t much to see when you flip the packaging over.

When you get in, you will find these in plastic wrapped around plain card and folded so there is no foot or leg shaping.

 

Getting Them On:

 

On The Legs: let’s start off with the colour, as it is so gorgeous! I have done something a little similar, but these are just stunning and certainly a favourite. This is my type of pink for sure, and it works perfectly with casual outfits. Of course you can dress them up for work and occasions before I get any comments heading my way, but this makes a nice change in my eyes.

The design I am crushing over; that backseam isn’t your average at all. I love how it works from this intricate heel and ends up into an even more intricate welt piece.

The quality of these are decent; they hugs the legs well, there is enough stretch in them for me to sit them higher than normal and they don’t damage easily. I have been in them all day and not one snag has appeared, let alone a rip. I am super happy!

The fit of these are true to size, so I would make sure you check out the sizing guide. They hug the legs so well, so there is no gapping at all. I also mentioned there is enough stretch to them; this means I can sit them higher up the thigh if I wanted to.

The feel of them are smooth and lovely. They don’t irritate the legs and they just glide on and off. They are a lovely pair.

 

The Toes & Ankle: so the downfall here is there is no reinforced toes! Sad times I know, but what can we do? I suppose keeping nails short and smooth will help, like I did with mine. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes and o pressure was added either.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a lovely smooth finish.

One thing I will mention is that gorgeous heel design which leads into a backseam. There is no sole panel to these, so just a heel piece on its own is something different!

The Bands: the welt itself is pretty slim, to the point it was hard to try and not clasp onto the lace design. I had to make sure they sat in their right place before I could move.

Nonetheless, can we appreciate this deep, thick intricate lace design which the backseam falls into? I haven’t seen this before, and I gotta say I love it. It make a change from a thick welt with the design, and I am totally here for it!

The welt holds up well and I had no issues with it falling down or with the size. They fit the thigh so well and they stretch out as much as they need to, so you get a comfortable fit on the thighs.

I would happily recommend these. I love how the colour look on the legs, the quality is great and they have been a joy to work with today. I am super happy with this pair!
