Cecilia De Rafael Eterno 9 Matt Tights


Ooo wee I am bringing some summer joy to my blog today, because I can’t deal with this weird weather in the UK. Not only that, I didn’t want a dark outfit with this gorgeous pair.

This pair was kindly gifted from my Amazon Wishlist.

The Review

From The Website: Ultra sheer, shiny shiny tights from Cecilia De Rafael. For a weightless, bare finish these gloss shiny tights have a laser cut waist and sheer brief and toe. Created using high-performance yarns that are extra-durable and ladder-resistant, whilst remaining super sheer and light with superb stretch. Also featuring a small cotton gusset for comfort. For leg perfecting sheers with a touch of glamourous shine, try the Eterno 9 gloss pantyhose today. 94% Polyamide, 8% Elastane

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll with this pair, not realising that the feet were stuck together and I had to prise them apart. Never had that issue with CdR before, so it was a little surprise this morning.

Once I got past that, I took care going over my anklets, and rolled them up the legs with ease.

On The Legs: so first thing’s first; how gorgeous is this shine?! And what I love more is that tan colour works wonders against my skin too. I love this colour more than Dore, as Dore has a lighter tone to it, which can work depending on my outfit but these just work for me regardless of the outfit! Now I was surprised that the company listed these as a matt, as these are no way a matt finish. If anything it is just super gloss and shine!

The quality of these are brilliant; no snags, no damage, no rips and no trouble. They have been a great pair to wear, and even if it did snag, they would be practically invisible as it blends so well with my legs.

The fit is perfect. I wore a medium, which I actually prefer rather than Small. I find their sizing to fluctuate between their styles, and the medium fits my thighs a lot better than the small does. I had plenty of material to achieve even leg coverage, and no gapping was found either.

The feel of these are incredible! They are soft, they are smooth, and they are damn silky. They are perfect to wear with any clothing you wish, as it will just glide right along than have that friction tug. I had no irritation from these either!

The Toes & Ankle: these come without any reinforcements, which does make me sad as these are such alight denier. I did make sure I kept my nails short and smoothed out the edges, to make sure they don’t end up causing any damage.

These were fine around my toes; no pressure was added and had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe. Around the feet and ankles, it’s a smooth and wrinkle-free finish.

The Waistband & Gusset: so the best thing about these is that the waistband is seamless, so it’s supposed to be pretty invisible under your clothing. I found my waistband to sit higher up my waist, and roll down too. Luckily, they didn’t roll down on itself any more than what is shown below, but it was still annoying.

These have a nice amount of stretch to it, so it doesn’t squeeze your waist in any way. I did like that about them. They do also have a thin reinforcement band underneath for that added protection.

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

My Thoughts?

I cannot complain here, as this pair have been great to me. I have worn this style before in different colours, and found them to be just the same as how I have reviewed this pair.
