Calzedonia Womens Dotted Bow-Seam Tights

Oooo wee … I do love polka dots especially when Spring is blessing us. It’s a pattern which never goes out of style and can be worn in so many ways. I am super excited to give these as go as they are supposed to look like a mock over-knee pair!

The Packaging: oooo fancy wrapping hey! The front of the packaging is very basic to be honest; what you see below is what you get.

You see the model wearing them on the back on the top left hand corner of the packaging.

When you get in, you will find these flat folded. I did notice a noticeable difference in the leg length when I laid these flat on the bed. At first I thought it was me, but when I did it a few times, I saw that there was extra material on the left leg than the right. So this is gonna be fun being in them for the day!


On The Legs: okay so if you saw the model on the packaging in these, you will notice that they sit over the knee on her. Mine started off like that, but due to the weird leg length, this ended up falling down and sitting under the knees instead on me. I have to admit, all I kept doing today at work is pulling my tights up to sit where they are supposed to!

The quality of these are amazing; no snags or rips throughout the day even though I was so tempted! I felt these were a great pair to be in, but shame about the lack of stretch in them.

The fit of these are so nice on the legs; they hug them so well and I would like to say stay in place but they certainly don’t do that. They just fall right on down instead!

The feel of them are super soft and really lovely on the legs; no irritation, no nothing. I thought they were great to be in, and as I have been in pairs like this before, I didn’t expect any different with these.

Now the actual sizing of these, I wish I went 1 size up getting a M-L instead, as S-M isn’t working out too great for me. I really wish they did stay put above the knee so it created this amazing look but clearly they had other plans. And nope it doesn’t matter how many times you pull them down and tug up – nothing works. I even took them off a few times and tugged right from the toes up, but nope it still falls right back down.


The Toes & Ankle: no reinforcements here so I had to be super careful making sure my nails don’t do through these. I had to pay extra attention and care when I decided to tug them up my leg from the toe seams!

There is no extra material around the sides, it’s a lovely fitted finish around the feet and ankles too.


The Waistband: the only good thing is this gorgeous fitted waistband which I love being in! This gave me no hassle during the day and did its damn job too! I can’t even blame this part for making the tights slip down the legs, as it held it up super well and I didn’t feel this fall down at any point during the day either.

These sit around the waist (belly button level on me) and stay put throughout the day. It has plenty of stretch to them and this doesn’t loosen either.




My Thoughts?

I would recommend getting 1 size up in these to allow extra room and stretch on the legs, so they can sit where they should and not fall down the damn leg!

Otherwise I thought these were super cute and a great pair to be in, in terms of material, quality and fitting.
