Cecilia de Rafael Vidrio Gloss Tights

Now bring on my 2nd pair of the Vidrio Gloss Tights, seeing as my black pair were a bit of a let down. I have done a very similar colour to these before (see link: Oroblu Fizzy Overknee for the images) and this time I went for a darker tan colour to give me a nice fak-tan look with a fabulous shine!

My Outfit

I thought this would be a cute outfit for a Summer wedding, or a special occasion which is happening outdoors. I say outdoors as you wanna make sure that the sun hits those tan glossy legs!

I paired my embellished playsuit paired with my white butterfly sandals and went with some simple studs. I was going for longer drop earrings, but they broke on me at the very last minute, so there goes that plan!

The Review

From The Website: Cecilia de Rafael’s Vidrio Tights are ultra sheer and ultra shiny. The gleaming yarns give these gloss tights a polished, glamorous look. At 15 denier these high shine tights have strength and durability with a super sheer appearance. Available in XL & XXL the plus size tights feature an added black panel for comfort and fit. Finished with flat seams, sheer to waist brief, cotton gusset and a reinforced toe, these shiny tights are on trend and rather luxurious! 88% Nylon, 12% Elastane

The Packaging: I won’t go into too much detail here as this will be the same as the last review I did.


Getting Them On: now the only difference here is that I could hardly see any snags or scuffs on these (and it helps as they blend in with the skin so they don’t stand out) which I am happy about. I took my time getting these on using hosiery gloves as usual!



On The Legs: against the white I can say these really do stand out. Not only do they give such a gorgeous tan look, but that gloss is beautiful. It really looks like I have some seriously oiled up legs to be honest!

Everything else I can safely say is the same as my last Vidrio pair, which I was happy with. The fit is great and is perfect for my leg length and the feel is just as soft and smooth as the last pair.

I did use flash in some images so you can see the gloss at its very best, and the others are with natural lighting.

I also wanted to show you the difference it makes to my leg colour, so do scroll down a little and check on the right side to see the tights on my right leg and bare leg on the left.


The Toes & Ankle: now the toe strip is a darker denier on this pair, which does make it slightly annoying with sandals, but I made sure that the end of the seam was tucked under the strap so it looked like a natural finish.

Otherwise these were perfect on the toes, feet and ankles 🙂


The Waistband: and another amazeballs waistband, with a non-wonky seam as well! I had no complaints in these either; I’m just happy that they didn’t start rolling down with that oily coating on them!




My Thoughts?

Now this pair I really do love; it gave my legs a gorgeous shine and a natural looking tan. Shame my arms weren’t looking the same though! I really did love this pair and I would certainly recommend them!

  2. The CDR Vidrio I myself love wearing so in fact I have 4 pairs in different colors. I agree with your review they have a magnificent glossy appeal and look fantastic on my legs. These if they came in more colors would even buy more to add to my collection. If someone loves the glossy look at this price which is a bargain they need to try these and will be hooked like I was.
