Now I am very intrigued with this pair, seeing as I love the Super Lucidos that CdR have to offer. As much as I like the seamless top on most of them, I do like a proper band, especially when I am working with mini skirts.

Replicating a similar style that I did back in the day, as it was one of my favourite looks. I wore my cold shoulder satin top, paired with my faux leather mini skirt and added leopard heels to make it fun!
From The Website: Enjoy Cecilia De Rafael’s super shine hosiery with added comfort.

Getting Them On: so I will say my excitement quickly turned into disappointment when I was getting these on. I had my gloves on just in case, and I’m glad I did. I found there to be so many defects and markings which were clearly hard to spot when I did my unpackaging video. I’ll get into this a little further down.
These were fine getting on over anklets, and setting in place when I was happy.
On The Legs: okay here we go…
So the quality is BAD, and to the point these aren’t even worth it. I found markings and defects all over my legs, so nowhere was safe. There were multiple lines running through both legs, along with snags, darker patches and just rough areas. I have no idea what has happened, but honestly I was not pleased considering I didn’t have time to change out of these.
The fit of these were good, and I am glad that I went a size up as I had enough stretch to them so I didn’t have to tug and pull in any way. If I went for a size Small, I think I would have struggled! I had no gapping, and these didn’t fall down easily either.
The feel of these are lovely in some areas; they are super soft and smooth but some parts they did feel rough and quite itchy. Honestly I was a mix of feelings wearing this pair today.
The shine on these are lovely and they have that normal lucido finish, which is nice. I am glad that wasn’t affected!
The Toes & Ankle: so these come with sandals toes, which is fine as I made sure to keep my nails smooth when wearing these. I didn’t need to have another issue on my hands this morning!
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either. Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth, wrinkle-free finish.
The Waistband & Gusset: so this is one of the reasons why I wanted to try this pair out; the band looks so comfortable and smooth. All of this part is like a seamless waistband, which I really like.
I did find the finish on the edges could have been much neater and cleaner, but never mind. I did like the fit of these, and they moved with me which is what I wanted from them.
In my honest opinion, I can’t recommend these, due to how bad this pair was in the end. I thought they would be great, and something a little different, but I’m not a fan.
