Calzedonia Mirror-Detail Seam Sheer Tights

This is the 2nd part of my travels in Bath. If you missed the 1st blog > UKKO Lolita Tights

Today we spent it with more walking around the City of Bath, and visiting a few great places:

  • Mrs Potts Chocolate House
  • Parade Gardens
  • Guildhall Market
  • Jane Austin Museum
  • The Holburne Museum
  • Sydney Gardens

This pair I had purchased whilst they had their sale at the beginning of the year, so I doubt they are available to purchase unless you find a private seller.

My Outfit

I went super casual with my outfit today. I paired an oversized t-shirt with my denim skirt and added some comfy trainers for a great walk ahead of us. The big coat and scarf was totally needed as it got quite blustery towards the later afternoon.

The Review

The Packaging

Getting Them On: of course I am gonna have some hotel fun here! I took my sweet time getting these on this morning, as the backseam kept moving so I had to slowly get them on this morning. These were fine going over anklets too, as long as you pull them over and then roll up the legs.

On The Legs: trigger happy with images this pair! I took a mix of images at the hotel, and when I was out and about just so you can see how they look in different lighting. Once I got them on and lined up, these look absolutely stunning. I love the diamante backseam, which is very well stuck on. I really pulled at some of them to see if they fall off easily (as I knew I will be taking photos near some stone backdrops) and they did not budge at all.

The quality of these are great; they lasted so well, and I did end up snagging them around the diamante parts where you see me sitting on a stone wall – but you could not tell at all! These are a great pair for sure if they can withstand such materials!

The fit of these were perfect for me; they had enough stretch in them to give me great leg coverage and there wasn’t too much ombre-ing on the legs either, which helps massively. I hate it when you can see it shade light to dark and back to light again.

The feel of these were lovely; they have a matt finish so they are left feeling smooth and soft, but no coating on top. I was so comfortable in these the whole day.

The Toes & Ankle: now these shots I had to do back at the hotel, as there wasn’t a decent spot for me to take them without getting weird looks from the public. These don’t come with reinforced toes, which is a shame but never mind. I kept my nails short and smooth for this reason.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move, and no pressure was added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a smooth finish with no wrinkling whatsoever.

The Waistband & Gusset: now I am working with a lovely band! This is ribbed, soft, smooth, and holds up so well! I love that it shaped to me, it didn’t roll down on itself and it had enough elasticity in it.

These also come with a cotton gusset, that sits flush against the skin too.

My Thoughts?

These are such a great pair I have to say, and that backseam is one of my favourites too!
