Carra Hosiery Live Your Life Tights

Most of you will have seen these tights showcased with my amazing Chic By Lorene Noir Anklets a little while back. I wanted to do this pairing as I saw it on their social media, and I just had to re-create it for myself. I loved the whole look, even though I am covering the main statement piece of the tights!

Anyways… let me carry on with the blog for you all!

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll, and I took my time to get my line up right at the back. It depends on how much you tug these up to determine where the writing sits. I kept mine quite low this time, but there as certainly enough stretch for me to sit it higher if I wanted.

These were also fine going over ankles as long as you take care.

On The Legs: I gotta start off with this awesome statement backseam. This is something I really love – when people make their backseams fun and quirky. I love how they have the writing done on one leg instead of both to give it that asymmetric style. This was one of my favourite things about this pair; creating statements without even trying! The seam itself is thick, and it isn’t sewn into the pair so it will bump out to give it that bold look.

The quality of this pair are unreal! They hug the legs so well and they look incredible. I had plenty of stretch for great leg coverage and there were no parts where I had darker or lighter patches. They don’t snag easily (however I did snag these up a lot when I paired them with my ankle cuffs – the velcro did it) and they don’t rip easily either.

The fit of them are great; I had plenty of stretch in these to fit my leg length, especially the thighs. They hug the legs really well, and there is no gapping either. I would recommend checking the sizing guide, and if in doubt, just go one size up!

The feel of them are super smooth and incredibly soft – as you can see from the images below. They look amazing, and they don’t irritate the skin either. They glide on the legs when you’re putting them on / taking them off, and I am so pleased with them!

The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, as you can see below. They do stay in place, and there is plenty of wiggle room for my toes. I also didn’t feel any pressure added around the toes during the day either.

Around the feet and ankles, there were no wrinkles as these are super fitted all round!

The Waistband & Gusset: these also come with the built-in panty part to them, so you will get this design at the front and back of the tights. They have a simple design to them, which I quite like. It gives it that little extra without trying.

The band on these are great; they are nice and thick, and they hold up the tights really well. They don’t roll down themselves at all, and they have plenty of elasticity in them so they hug the waist well.

These do come with a gusset, that sits flush against the skin and does not move out of place during the day.

My Thoughts?

I am a huge fan of this pair! I love the slogan in the seam, and these look great on the legs! I think they are a great pair, and one that is ideal for all genders to wear! I cannot wait for new pairs to drop to review!
