Aquarius Vintage Daffodil Yellow Tights

We are coming to the end of our Rainbow Week, and I wanted to end it with a gorgeous sunny pair. I got this pretty cheap on eBay a while back and thought it would look super cute to dress it up girly casual.

The Review

From The Website: Aquarius Vintage Daffodil Yellow Tights

Small (foot 3-5) marked as size 2
Made In Italy
Bright yellow tights perfect for the summer


The Packaging: this is how they came from the seller. It was wrapped in pink outer tissue, with the tights inside. The packaging itself is so basic; there isn’t much to them to be honest.

When you get in, you will find them folded around plain card, with foot and leg shaping to them.


Getting Them On: I wasn’t too sure what this pair was going to be like, so I took my time to get them on today. I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets. They glided up pretty smoothly from there on up.



On The Legs: let me just say how lovely this colour is on the legs! I wasn’t too sure how it would look against my skin colour, but it worked and it looks adorable! I prefer lighter yellow instead of darker yellows, and it totally worked out for me. The design on them I can’t say are daffodils, but they are cute. They are more like little bows, which makes a nice change from polka dots.

The quality of these are not bad at all; I say it like that as it isn’t the best but it will work for a few wears at least. These would be easy to snag, so I would make sure you take care being in them. I manage not to damage them today (woop woop)!

The fit of these are true to size, however always make sure you try and access the sizing guide before buying if you can. I found that these do wrinkle slightly around the knees when my legs are flat, which is super odd! I will also say these do not have much stretch to them at all.

The feel of them are soft and super smooth on the skin; both inside and out. They don’t irritate at all and they feel lovely to touch.


The Toes & Ankle: I am glad to say this has some reinforcement to it; if you look close enough, you can see the dotted section across the toes, and then it smooths out underneath. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes and no pressure was added either.

Around the feet, these were lovely and smooth. So wrinkles do appear now and again when the foot is bent, but it isn’t something that causes an issue though.



The Waistband & Gusset: so not a bad waistband overall really. This sat around my belly button on me and had a good amount of stretch to it. I will say if you kept on stretching these out, they would give in and just break; the band isn’t that great but as long as you take care, it should serve you well.

These nicely hugged the waist without squeezing it too tight either. They also have a reinforced boxer brief part which works from the band to the top thigh, as shown below.

In terms of a gusset, there isn’t on one these. It is just a plain seam, so I wouldn’t recommend going commando.



My Thoughts?

Not a bad pair I must say; it did serve a purpose today and did it well. They are adorable; I love the colour and the cute ditsy ‘daffodils’ placed over the tights. I would recommend this pair if you can get your hands on them in time.
