Cecilia de Rafael Sevilla Gloss Summer Tights

I am back in Sevilla, and I cannot wait to show them off to you all. It’s been a while since I’ve been in sevilla but as it’s summer, these are the perfect pair to get out and prounce around in. I got this pair in a larger size than I normally go for, as I find their sizing to change on each style. So to play it safe I went one up, and paired it with a dress I absolutely love!

The Review

From The Website: What better designer to make the perfect pair of sheer tights for summer. Cecilia de Rafael, a Spanish brand with a history of quality legwear, knows exactly what makes a great pair of tights in the heat of summer. The material is very sheer to keep you feeling light and fresh, but Cecilia de Rafael have added a gorgeous and rich sheen to the item to give it back its noticeable and healthy glow.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: these are super easy to glide right on the legs, I hardly had to do any work. Plus it helps being a size bigger so I have extra material to play with too. I did my scrunch and roll to begin with, taking care going over the anklets before I rolled them right up and set them in place.

On The Legs: can we just talk about this gloss please? and how gorgeous it looks?! This is why I love the sevilla gloss range, as they have such a beautiful glossy shine to them, that make the legs look incredible! Even without flash on to make them pop, these have a subtle one in normal daylight to enhance those pins! The colour really helps as well – one of my favourites to be honest.

The quality of these are amazing – they don’t tend to let me down often to be fair. There are no snags, no rips or any other damages to this pair after a full day’s wear either. Another plus point!

The fit of these are really nice. I had enough stretch for even leg coverage and I didn’t have to tug at these once when getting them on. If I went for small, I feel like I would have needed to as they can be quite fitted sometimes.

The feel is just heaven – simply heaven. It’s smooth, it’s silky and it has such a lovely glossy coat on them to touch. I think they’re great, and they don’t irritate the legs either!

The Toes & Ankle: these have invisible toes, which means no reinforcement. That is a shame as it would have made these tights go from great to FRIKKING AWESOME! But never mind. I had plenty of wiggle room, and no pressure was added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: is great and holds up with without it moving all day. It didn’t roll down on itself or shimmy out of place either. These have plenty of elasticity to them, so they hug the waist well without putting any pressure on.

My Thoughts?

A great pair, and one that I loved pairing up with this dress and heels. The quality is great, the fit was spot o and the feel was amazing! A thumbs up from me on recommending!
