Now this pair I have worn before, and I forgot to do a shoot in them for the review. So I am slipping back into them for the 2nd time round to show them off to you all!
The first time I paired these with shorts, t-shirt, cardigan and my boots. However I felt a dress would be better suited, and I haven’t worn this dress for so long!
Materials: 90% Nylon, 9% Elastane,1% Cotton excluding waistband
I paired up my lace skater skirt dress with my fishnet pointed heels. I felt like dressing up a little, and I quite liked this look.

The Packaging: apologies as I forgot to take a video of the packaging for you. I was super excited to just get these on! I pulled an image from the website to show you what the front of the packaging looks like. The tights came wrapped around card inserted into plastic packaging.
Getting Them On: I took these images before as soon as I got them out the packaging the first time round; they had slight snags around the top of the tights. I made sure I got them on gently and carefully both times I was in them so no more snags could occur.
I did my scrunch and roll, taking care of my anklets whilst rolling them up the legs.
On The Legs: check out how great these look on the legs! These look more like 15 denier rather than 10, however I am not complaining here! They make my legs look super smooth and really toned from afar! I am liking this very much – thank you Aristoc!
The quality of these are pretty good; even though they came with snags, I made sure to take some care in them each time I was in them and they were pretty good. I did manage to end up with a few more on the front of my legs. They have a lovely amount of stretch to them for my leg length too.
The fit of these are tre to size, so I would recommend checking out the sizing guide before purchasing. If needs be, I would recommend going one size up to ensure you aren’t tugging too much on these if you’re a duo size. They hugged the legs very well – no issues from me!
The feel of them are super soft and seriously smooth. They also do have a small amount of shine to them (which I forgot to capture – SORRY!). They don’t irritate the legs, they feel amazing soft and they leave your legs feeling slightly revitalised – especially when you’ve been on your feet all day. This has light compression in them so it helps if you’re always on the move.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes at the front and back, that cover the toes slightly. I had plenty of wiggle room in them for my toes to move, and there was no pressure added either.
Around the feet and ankles, it was a smooth fitted finish.
The Waistband & Gusset: this shot was taken when I first wore them. As you can see, the waistband sits around my belly button and sadly – it rolls down on itself. This was as soon as I got them on that it happened, so I had no hope for the rest of the day in them. They stayed over-turned – and this also happened again the second time I wore them to do a shoot in.
The band itself is super comfortable and really hugs the waist well. It is supper soft and really smooth, to the point you couldn’t feel it on until it started to roll over itself.
The gusset is a small cotton patch which sits flush against the skin. This does not move at all once it has been set in place.
I am seriously liking these and how great they look on the legs! They are good quality even though they came slightly snagged, and I would still recommend them as they lasted super well both times I have been in them!
