Falke Seidenglatt 15 Tights

We meet again Falke! I have to say I do love their brand; clean, classy and totally worth it in terms of quality. But I just never seem to get my hands on them as much as I do other brands.

Now these beauts were purchased from eBay however as they were from a private seller, I managed to get you the next best link to purchase from.

And if you haven’t seen some of my previous reviews on Falke, check out some of the links below; I have more under the Falke category.

(By the way the links open in a new tab)

My Outfit

Little miss smarty pants to work today in one of my new dresses. I decided to cover up a little more in terms of dress length as it was a tad bit cold today but I was desperate to wear my sheers out!

I paired my polka dot heels with these and left the hair messy 🙂

The Review

From The Website: These tights are real all-rounders. Ideally suited for business, leisure or festive clothing. You are guaranteed to turn heads. The charming, slight sheen flatters your legs with a slimming effect. Available in plus sizes. Innovative hygienic gusset made with a net structure in sizes S-L, a comfort gusset in sizes XL-XXL, and ladder-resistant toe. 15 den appearance.

– Transparent sheer tights

– 15 den appearance

– Beautifully radiant legs

– Maximum comfort thanks to the perfect FALKE fit


The Packaging: it’s definitely been some time since I have slipped into Falke, and now I have my hands on this pair which look so nice!

The front doesn’t really show  you the model wearing the hosiery, but the model sitting there with the detail stated on the front. The back goes into a little more detail.

When you get in, you will find the tights wrapped horizontally folded and wrapped around card which states instructions on how to get your hosiery on carefully to prolong the life of them. If you are new to the hosiery world, I will say this really does help!


Getting Them On: now these are an interesting pair; when I saw them they looked slightly different to a normal pair of hosiery. They seemed quite thick even though they’re 15 denier, and I made sure I took extra care getting them on in case my nail slips right on through!

I took my time getting them over my anklets and rolled them slowly up the legs. I didn’t have to tug much as they were the right size for my legs.



On The Legs: all I can say is wow. I absolutely love the way these look on the legs. Without the flash, these appear darker than what they are but in the light (or in my case with the flash on) you can really see what they’re like!

The quality is absolutely amazing; I didn’t snag these at all considering the inner dress label was rubbing against my leg all day long!

Even when you touch these, they are so much better than you typical pair of 15 deniers; they ooze luxe and frankly, you could easily think these are a pair of Wolfords if you had your eyes closed.

The fit of them were perfect on the legs; they hugged them just right so they wasn’t loose or too tight in any way. They had a slight bit of stretch to them, but not much so I would recommend you check your sizing before you buy.

The feel of them are so silky, I can’t even begin. I loved the way they felt on the legs and that gorgeous shine too which just adds to it all. They’re simple but effective enough to pair with anything if you’re after a classy pair.


The Toes & Ankle: I am so happy that these are reinforced! This shows you how much of a good pair you got when they have this. I won’t bugbear with the fact they aren’t invisibly reinforced; I am just glad they have that overall! They are slightly darker, but it’s not too much of an issue if  you’re in small peep toes like I am. If you was to wear with sandals, then maybe not.

There is plenty of room around the toes, the feet and also the ankle. There is no added pressure throughout the day which is great!

Around the ankles, it’s a gorgeous smooth finish 🙂


The Waistband: so the band itself is super slim, which I like as it hardly rolls over itself. It is also reinforced underneath as well as you can see, before it works into the 15 denier sheerness. I do like bands like this; it’s not only comfortable, but works so well under bodycons!

They have plenty of elasticity in them and I don’t see this losing it anytime soon either 🙂




My Thoughts?

Another great pair of everyday tights, which are totally worth investing in. Not only do they have a great shine, but they also are amazing quality and make your legs looks amazeballs! I totally loved mine and would certainly recommend them!

  2. Love the review and your legs look fantastic and these shiny hose compliment every inch. They look terrific and love the glossy shine of these and they way you described them these are a must have in my book.

  3. Hi Soni, I am in the process of reviewing the new version of this style (art. 40490 instead of 40493). I find the new version has a particularly longer hose compared to the old one (both size M/L). Can you confirm this for me when you review the new version in the future?
