The Review

From The Website: 30 denier sheer tights with flock print and “I love you” lettering in multiple languages. Tights for the “A Wish for you” capsule collection. Cotton gusset.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I will mention here that the print is on both sides of the foot, so there is not really a right or wrong way to put these on.

I did my scrunch and roll, and slowly rolled them up the legs. I had to tug around the thighs, but I managed to set them in place without anywhere feeling restricted.

On The Legs: I need to talk about the design first – because I love it. I love the print, and how it’s scattered across the legs in no uniform way. The fact it translates to ‘I Love You’ in different languages is really nice. I love how it isn’t symmetrical as well, to give it a slight tattoo-looking effect. The writing is tulle I believe, as I found a lot of black fluff coming from it during the day. I could be wrong, but it isn’t like the rest of the material used.

The quality of this pair is really nice, and I didn’t have snagging issues pop up! I can imagine these can snag up real nice if you’re not careful in them – so basically be careful and stay away from anything sharp!

The fit is great; as it’s a duo size, you have that extra stretch to them. I did have to tug mine a little around the thighs, but it wasn’t anything that I was super annoyed about. It went up and down with ease when needed, and they have been great. These also don’t have any gapping around the knees or ankles either, so you get a smooth finish on the legs.

The Toes & Ankle: this pair does not have reinforced toes to them, which is a shame but I won’t complain. It would have been nice to have invisible reinforced toes, so I didn’t have to worry too much being in open toe sandals wearing them. This just means you need to take extra care with long and sharp nails in these.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added either.

Around the feet and ankles there is a lovely smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: a great waistband here that holds this pair up well. It sits around the waist on me, and does not roll or shimmy down during the day.

It also has plenty of elasticity to them, so they don’t dig in.

I like that the pattern comes up to the top of the thighs before it cuts off and becomes super sheer to the waist.

These also have a cotton gusset to them, which sits flush against the skin.

My Thoughts?

I absolutely love this pair, and it worked so well with his outfit too. I happily recommend these!
