CdR Eterno 15 Tights

I decided to don some CdRs as my pre-birthday review! I love experimenting with colours, and I have done some funky ones in CdR before. Now we get to try out a gorgeous Indigo blue. This pair were kindly gifted and of course, we gotta do a review on them.

I have reviewed some similar styles to this one; hit the links below to read (opens in a new tab):

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I had to get the hosiery gloves out to help roll these on without any issues. These are pretty delicate, take your time and care getting them on. These were an easy roll up the legs once I got them past my anklets.

On The Legs: I have done a natural vs flash image below so you can see the difference.

The quality of them are amazing; however I managed to get a lovely little snag in them behind the knee after sitting on a rough chair at lunch. These are super delicate like most of the CdR pairs, so I strongly advise literally watching where you sit or what goes past your legs.

The fit of them are spot on; I felt there was enough room and stretch to them to fit my legs perfectly. There isn’t too much stretch let me add, so I would go up one size if you’re unsure. I now stick with Medium in CdR as their Small seems to be too snug.

The feel of them are so nice and super soft. They are to die for, and trust me when I say once you stroke them, it’s hard to stop! They are such a beautiful pair, and I love being in them.

This colour is so different; sometimes it tinges blue, and sometimes it tinges a grey-ish blue. Honestly it’s so much fun to be in them, as you don’t really know what colour you wanna say it is to people. I love that the shine goes a little more on the blue side. When the flash hits, it just becomes super sheer and glossy.

The Toes & Ankle: the toes have plenty of wiggle room in them and they don’t cause any pressure on the toes at all. I do wish they came with reinforced toes, just so you don’t have to constantly worry if any holes are going to be made, especially when wearing open toe shoes / sandals.

Around the ankles it was a lovely smooth finish as always!

The Waistband & Gusset: now I find this to be more of an issue than something I can just allow. As the band is seamless, it rolls down SO easily, and always ends up looking like this. The whole concept of it just sitting flush on the skin is quite hard when there is hardly any elasticity or a band to help do that.

Apart from that, they sit quite well on the skin, however I did find these drop down a tad whilst I was on the move today, which meant the gusset doesn’t sit flush against the skin and more further away from it.

My Thoughts?

I absolutely love this colour, and the way they shine! But I have to say that these weren’t a great pair in terms of practicality – these started to slip down me and ended up not sitting flush against the skin as I wanted it to, which is such a shame.
