These were bought from a private seller on eBay and unfortunately it was the last pair, which means that I have no other information as to where you can purchase a pair of your own.

My Outfit

I decided to go smart causal today. I paired a box t-shirt with my grey pencil skirt and I added white pumps. I know most of you are gonna be asking where the heels are, but I wanted to switch it up. I know a lot of people travel to work wearing flats and trainers, so this showing that you can still look stylish doing so!

The Review

The Packaging

 

On The Legs: let me just comment on the colour of these – and how well they work against my skin tone. I was super impressed with these as they blend in so well, making it look amazingly natural on the legs. I didn’t expect it to, but they worked wonders with my colour, giving it that subtle tan but not making it look unnatural. I am impressed already!

The quality of these are great; they feel luxurious when you slip them on, and I can see these lasting well if you take care of them. I didn’t manage to get any snags whilst being in them, which is a great sign!

The fit of these were true to size, and they were great on my legs. They sat pretty high up on the thighs, however as I was wearing a longer skirt it didn’t matter as much. They hugged the legs really well and there was no gapping either, giving it that flawless make-up look on the legs.

The feel of them were lovely and soft, especially against the skin. They were such a joy to be in, and I could have easily been in them all day without realising.

 

The Toes & Ankle: these came with reinforced toes and heels. I apologise for the non-toe pic, as we got carried away trying to shoot the legs. You will see that the reinforced heel is sitting slightly lower as I accidentally pushed them down when this photo was taken! But I will say they do sit around the heel where they are supposed to and not any lower.

The colour you see on the heels is also the colour found on the toe caps, which is slightly darker but looks incredible and super vintage.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and they did not feel cramped either.

Around the feet and ankles, you can see a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkles in sight.

The Bands: matching the RHT, you have the bands with a great tan colour caressing the thighs. I love the double welt you get, and it works so well as it is graduated so you finish with a deep tan at the top.

My belt was easy to hook onto these stockings, and they stayed in place the whole day I was in them.

The bands also do stretch out to fit your thighs and then keep that shape, so you won’t feel a squeeze when you get into them again.

My Thoughts?

I have to say these were a great purchase from eBay, and I wish they sold more! I love the quality, I love this shade and I love everything about them! They have been such a great pair to try out!
