Getting Them On: I made sure that I wore hosiery gloves getting these on as I did not want to create any snags in this delicate pair. I took my time getting them on the feet, and over my anklets. These were an easy glide and I was ready to go.
On The Legs: I love this floral print; it’s so simple and I absolutely love them. The mix of lighter and darker floral shades just work so well, and create such an effect on the legs. I know these are tights to wear in warmer weather, but I couldn’t resist.
The quality of them aren’t compromised at all – I felt if anything they felt so great on the legs and they were pretty hard to snag. There were a few close calls but I managed to swerve them quickly. I do feel these could last you a long time as long as you take care of them.
The fit of them are true to size with very little stretch to them, so you will need to make sure you get the size (or nearest size) to fit you as over-stretching them doesn’t look great on the legs. I had no gapping or wrinkling around the legs.
The feel of them are soft and pretty smooth. You can feel the floral pattern raised on the legs, and these do leave markings on your legs after a day’s wear which does go after 10-15mins. There is also no irritation to the skin, which is great!
The Toes & Ankle: unfortunately no reinforced toes here, but it’s ok when they look this great around the toes. I know painted nails would have really shone here, but I prefer the whole nude look.
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear. I love that the floral patterns works right through, as it looks so pretty!
Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth fitted finish.
The Waistband & Gusset: so I have a boxer brief to this pair, which you can see on some of the images above – it ends top thigh and becomes this whole reinforced section that covers the tushy upwards to the waistband.
The waistband is a good one; it has plenty of elasticity to it, and doesn’t roll down. It sits above my belly button and stays in place all day with no issues.
These come with a gusset to them, which sits flush against the skin too, so you have the option to go commando if you wish.
I love this pair, and how feminine they look. They are a great quality pair, and the fit is amazing too. I would definitely recommend them for sure.
