Rolling some Falke back up the legs, and this pair I am so excited to review. I love this type of design, and as these are based on a net it makes it reviewing them even more fun.
This pair was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist – all detail are below.
Materials: 72% Polyamide, 21% Polyester, 7% Elastane
One of my favourite go-to outfits, especially as I am getting back into Khaki again. I paired my fine knit jumper with my lace trim shorts and added simple court shoes to finish the look for work.
Heels: Lost Ink (not shown)

Getting Them On: I made sure that I took my time getting these on this morning as I didn’t want to cause any damage before my day has even started. I did my scrunch and roll slowly around my anklets before I rolled them up the legs. They were a lovely smooth glide up with hardly any tugging.
On The Legs: I am working with such a gorgeous pair today. This design is just *makes lovey dovey face* and a pair I could easily work with in the future. I love designs like that as they are super feminine and look great with whatever outfit you pair it with; edgy, feminine, punk, work, formal etc. It’s one of those that is super versatile! I love the heavy lace work from the toes working to the mid thigh, and then it becomes this chic polka dot finish all the way to the waistband.
The quality of this pair is stunning as always; I never seem to have an issue with Falke pairs and this lived up to my expectation. I managed not to snag these at all during my wear, keeping them super pristine!
The fit was spot on, as usual. I like that these have enough stretch for my leg length, however I do advise going a size up as there isn’t much elasticity in these if you are in-between sizing. Plus it’s always better to have extra than less! There was no gapping to be found, and I had even leg coverage from toe to waistband too.
The feel of these are soft for a net/lace pair. I will say if you’re not used to this texture, you may find it to irritate your skin ever so slightly, but honestly I was fine wearing them all day with no issues.
The Toes & Ankle: this is a pro and con point in my eyes:
Pro – beautiful detailing from the toe seams up, making it perfect to wear with any footwear you like.
Con – no reinforcement at all, especially as this is a net base. Nails will need to be short and smooth to be able to wear these without damaging them.
I did have plenty of wiggle room in them, so my toes could breathe and move with no issues but you best believe I was super careful and kept checking to make sure I didn’t damage them during the day.
Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth finish with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see below, the waistband is a slim one, which has a lovely amount of stretch to it. These held up really well on the waist, and there was no sign of any movement under my clothing either. What I did like was these were completely sheer right up to the band, so anything short can be worn without worrying about a reinforced boxer brief.
These also come with a cotton gusset, which sits flush against the skin at all times.
Such a beautiful pair and totally worth the money! I love the design, I love the quality of Falke and these were such a great pair to review today!
