I am so happy that this pair is finally on the blog. I bought these around this time last year and haven’t been able to review them until now! I picked up this pair from TKMaxx and wanted to give them a go.
I will say I do like the Donna Karan brand for some time now, and love coming across pairs that I haven’t seen before – purely because they always have some benefit to their hosiery. You don’t really see a pair that are just plain sheer tights; they always offer a little something else to them, and that’s what I love.
I did provide a link where you can purchase them from Amazon as they are no longer in the TKMaxx store.

I wanted to dress this pair up a little, so I opted for a floral midi dress paired with my patent grey court shoes to finish off the look. I added very minimal jewellery to keep it elegant.

The Packaging: the front shows the model wearing them in the colour nude. The back goes into a little more detail about the pair.
When you get in, you will find the tights wrapped around a set of instructions. These do help if you struggle to get on tights. The pair come flat folded with no leg or foot shaping to them.
Getting Them On: I will say as you scrunch them down to get them over your feet, they do start to feet a little tight. I wouldn’t be alarmed here as the pair are pretty stretchy so you shouldn’t be able to rip these easily.
I rolled them up gently over the anklets and then up the rest of the legs. I liked that they had good amount of stretch to them so you can afford to be a little rough with them.
On The Legs: I gotta say these look pretty nice. You know me… I don’t do greys a lot and I’m quite fussy with them too but these look incredible. It’s a lovely subtle grey, which makes the legs look soft as well as slimmer.
The quality of these are amazing; they have been so good to me throughout the day, and I didn’t end up with any snags or rips either. I can see these lasting a long time if taken care of properly.
The fit of them are true to size, and I had plenty of stretch in mine to make sure I had even coverage on the legs. I would always recommend checking the sizing guide if you’re unsure. These are a pair that you don’t need to tug up the legs to make sure they stay up – they just roll on and set themselves in place.
The feel of them are stunning; they are super soft, they are smooth on the legs and they feel great to be in. I had no issues at all in them. I do love the fact these are an affordable luxury pair which are made for people on the go. This is a brilliant pair if you are the type to be on your feet all day – you know you won’t be snagging these easily whilst you’re on the move.
The Toes & Ankle: so the downfall is that the toes aren’t reinforced. However, they are perfect to wear with open toe shoes. There are no font or back thicker denier strips going across the toes, and they are completely sheer to the toe seam.
There is plenty of wiggle room to begin with, however during the day I did feel these tightened a little, so I had to pinch them away from the toes a few times. It wasn’t a huge deal, but just so I was comfortable enough to be in.
Around the ankles, these are lovely and smooth, with a great fitted finish so you won’t find any wrinkles forming.
The Waistband: has this great panty part to it. It works around the front and back, and is super comfortable if you wish to wear this pair commando. The band itself is really comfortable around the waist, it stays put all day long unless you move it and it holds up the tights well! It’s a lovely soft band, with plenty of elasticity in it to make sure you get a lovely huggable fit.
I love this pair; they fit so well and they have really outdone themselves with the quality. The colour is another thing that I like; one that can work in the office if you didn’t want to keep them just for going out and about. I would certainly recommend them!
