Essexee Legs Gloss Lace Top Hold Ups

I am so psyched to review this brand. I have been after a pair of theirs for so long, and now I have found a gorgeous pair of holdups to get my legs into!


About Essexee Legs

“Having talked about launching an online shop for a number of years Essex’ee Legs began to take shape at the end of 2010. We wanted to sell glamorous and everyday ladies hosiery that is not always offered on the High Street, and in January 2011 the building of the website began, stock was purchased and all the ideas began to become a reality.

At Essex’ee Legs customers are given a great choice of ladies hosiery; tights, stockings, leggings, socks and more to suit all styles and budgets, keeping up with the latest trends. We offer an efficient and reliable service with orders being dispatched same day, if they are ordered before 3.30pm (UK time). We sell worldwide and add new stock weekly, with many special offers available.

Take a browse around our website, we are powered by Absolute Shopping Cart giving our customer’s a very user friendly experience.

2014 welcomed and new design website which is clean, fresh and crisp; giving our customers an even easier shopping experience. An ‘on mobile’ feature has also been added so customers can shop via their smartphones and tablets.

Also in the Spring of 2014, we were delighted to introduce our own Essex’ee Legs branded hosiery to the range. We now have for sale EL hosiery essentials, a plus size collection and fashion tights for sale. The EL items are of the highest quality and customer feedback has been very positive, with repeat sales.

2015 will see the EL brand expanding, with many more styles, and the launch of the EL-TightsApp. We are very excited about the future at EL.

We welcome feedback from our customer’s. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to see a particular item added.”

The Packaging: now this is my first time ordering from this brand, so I am quite excited. I have followed them for a while on Instagram, and now I have the chance to review a pair!

These came tissue wrapped to begin with to protect the packaging (and make it look pretty I suppose)

The front has their logo as well as a large window showing you the product and the colour. The back doesn’t state much detail to be honest; it’s just a sticker letting you know the composition and the washing guide.

When you get in, you will find these folded around card, flat folded. I am loving how deep this colour is, and cannot wait to get my legs into them!


Getting Them On: so instead of writing about it, let me show you …


On The Legs: just wow. Not only do they give me some colour, but they are looking flawless here! Even if I say so myself …

The quality of these are so good; I wasn’t too sure what they would have been like during the day, especially if I’m running around having meetings… But they were good to me all day long! They have plenty of stretch to them as well, which meant I could wear them higher up the leg rather than mid-thigh.

The fit of them are spot on, even though they are one size. I didn’t feel these had too much stretch so they sagged on the legs or felt baggy, which is great. It just shows that they can fit a good few sizes up!

The feel of them are so soft and smooth, which makes it even better!!! I cannot praise these enough right now!


The Toes & Ankle: so these are reinforced, which I will say make sure that your nails won’t be causing you any issues! These will be perfect for sandals, peep toes and any other open toe shoes!

There is plenty of wiggle room in these, and no extra material gathered anywhere either.

Around the ankles, as you can see below, it’s a lovely fitted finish.


The Bands: these have got some good grip for sure. I found these stayed put so well throughout the day, even though I did remove them plenty of times to test out the silicone band. I felt that one band was certainly more than enough to hold these up for the whole day.

Also let me mention that lovely floral lace band, which gives it that stunning finishing touch to the holdups.



My Thoughts?

Can I just say how impressed I am with these and that gloss is just amazeballs! I love the way these added some colour to my legs, giving it a flawless finish and that shine is just stunning!
