My Outfit

Another new dress comes out to play today, and this time I wanted to create a feminine sparkly look. I paired up my dress with my satin pink heels and kept jewellery to a minimum.

The Review

From The Website: Seamless transparent panty without rhombus.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I was super careful rolling these up the legs this morning. I know the gloves should have been on, however I forgot to get them out. I took my time doing my scrunch and roll, before rolling up gently over the legs.

On The Legs: well can we just say how incredible this outfit looks? I didn’t think it would turn out this well, but it has pieced together nicely and looks so good! I love the whole blush and lights pinks that work hand in hand to create a great outfit. You could always change the shoes to silver, rose gold or a light gold to make it a little more party-focused.

The quality of this pair was not bad at all; I say not bad as I did find that some parts of the tights felt quite rough and grainy to touch, which did irritate my legs a little. It wasn’t anything major but something that needed to be shared just in case you may get the same issue. Apart from that, I didn’t encounter any sags or ripsp during the day, and they have been great otherwise.

I did experiment with flash in some outfits, so you get to see how lovey and shiny these really are. They have a lovely lustre shimmer to them, which really does set the whole mood for the outfit. I normally wear these airs with plainer clothing so the legs are the statement piece, but as a party outfit this really works well!

The colour of this pair is a tad bit lighter than my leg colour, giving off a light pink with a hint of grey to it. It didn’t look that great to begin with, however with the full outfit it doesn’t look bad at all and I could hardly tell. I wouldn’t normally go for a natural shade as this can be quite light and for more lighter skin tone people, however you can always layer up or pair with outfits that help to enhance the colour.

The fit of these were true to size, and I will always say check the sizing guide too. I have tested out larger pairs in CdR before, and depending on the style they can fit me really well. I have worn medium before which felt like a small, so it does vary on the style. I felt like I had enough stretch in my pair for it to fit my legs without an ombre leg finish to them.

The feel of them are slightly grainy but still quite soft to touch. This is one that I wouldn’t wear all the time as I felt like I would need to layer a pair underneath to make sure that it doesn’t irritate my legs during the day. Apart from that, they felt quite nice and I didn’t have any issues being in them during the day.

The Toes & Ankle: these come with no reinforcements, so you will need to be careful with long/sharp nails. It’s a shame as a pair like this should at least have invisible reinforcement so you can pair up with almost any type of footwear. I had to be carful in my peep toes to ensure that my nails were not going to cause any rips.

My toes had plenty of wiggle room, with no pressure added either.

Around the feet, there is a close up image showing you there was a rough section on the top of my foot that I found. This did cause some irritation, but died down after I creamed my feet again and put my tights back on. That is not normal, so please do check your pairs before you get them on.

Around the ankles, it was a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkles.

The Waistband & Gusset: we have a lovely seamless band to play with here, which you can see is super soft and really smooth against the skin. This band is great for those who want to feel like they’re not wearing a pair underneath and having a band so comfortable it feels like it’s not around their waist.

It holds up really well, and doesn’t roll over itself at any point or shimmy down the waist. There is also plenty of elasticity in the band as well for it to fit really well without squeezing.

There is no gusset to this pair, so it will be all nylon covered.

My Thoughts?

Not a bad pair I have to say! I do really like the gloss on this pair, and it does look really good with the outfit I paired it with! I wasn’t too keen on the quality this time, however I am hoping not all their pairs are like this!
