CdR Zafiro Tights

So roll on the 2nd part of the Zafiro collection I have – the previous pair were the secret shaping ones which were a total hit in my eyes. I am just hoping that these being 20 denier thinner will still be as great!

As these were gifted by a follower, I managed to track down a link where you can purchase a pair below (along with my 10% off discount code)

The Review

From The Website:

50 Den
Very soft and comfortable tight, with a matte finish
88 % Nylon (Microfibre), 12 % Spandex. Lycra 3 D
Made in Spain


The Packaging: so it’s very similar to the last Zafiro hosiery I was in (and actually it reminds me a bit of the Uppsala packaging). These are flat folded wrapped around card once you get into it, ready to get your legs in to!

On The Legs: I gotta say I am loving it. The best thing about these are that they have a slight shine to them, which I didn’t notice until the flash hit them! I have never come across a pair of shiny 50 deniers before, which is a total bonus for me!

You can now keep your legs warm and still get that great shine with your outfit!

The quality of these are once again amazing; no issues in terms of snagging or runs anywhere which is great!

The fit and feel is spot on as usual; they fit my legs really well, still had a fair bit of stretch in them too and they just felt superb. I gotta say I do love thicker deniers for that reason; they just encase your legs in this smooth wool-like finish you know!

I am still crushing on how these have shine to them; it actually do look like I have some shiny nudes on underneath which is peering through – hard to believe that it’s the pair alone!!

The funny thing is that they give the impression of a matte finish in normal lighting, but when that flash goes off, it really does become a semi-matte (actually that is questionable as well now!)


The Toes & Ankle: so to my surprise these have a reinforced toe cap to them, which makes these even better in my eyes. They cover the front and back of the toes, so long nails are safe 🙂

They have plenty of wiggle room in them and no pressure is added either.

Around the ankles as you can see, is a lovely flush finish with no wrinkles at all 🙂


The Waistband: and that smile just keeps getting better I swear! The band is to die for; it’s so comfy and you actually forget you’re wearing one with how comfortable and soft it is. I love the way it sits on the waist, doesn’t overturn on itself and just holds up the hosiery perfectly.



My Thoughts?

Bravo CdR with this pair. It’s a shame I didn’t get my hands on them sooner, but I am seriously loving these for sure. That shine is something else I gotta say, especially on thicker deniers which I love!

The quality and everything is always really good with CdR, but these really did stun me.

  1. CDR are always a sure bet never come across a pair I didn’t like plus your legs make them look even better yet. These would have to say are a must have will have to check them out to see what colors are offered.

  2. Wow! Would never have thought of a 50 looking so sheer and perfectly shiny as they do.
    They absolutely compliment those gorgeous legs of yours.

    Brilliant review Miss 🙂
