I am so excited to do this review today. I love how dainty these tights are, and I decided to throw together a chic outfit to really make them pop. I didn’t want to opt for something short this time (I know) but an outfit that oozes sophistication.
This whole outfit was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist – and you can find the items in my ‘Idea Lists‘.
Materials: 71% Polyamide, 29% Elastane
I really like this vintage vibe, especially with this gorgeous purple dress. I added some caramel brown court shoes to finish the look. You can always opt for a different colour, style or heel height too.
Dress: Look For The Stars
From The Website: The romantic, floral pattern makes these tights a feminine eye-catcher. Inspired by the delicate buds of wild roses, the style gets a playful touch. The high-quality workmanship in the 3D knitting process with sustainable, recycled yarn composition as well as the perfect Falke fit round off the design. The perfect companion for all casual looks.

Getting Them On: I did my little scrunch and roll, and slowly started to roll them up the legs. I took my time going over my anklets as these are a softer, delicate material. I did have to tug a few times here and there to make sure I sit them as perfect as possible on the legs.
On The Legs: now I have a mix of images where I caught the natural sunlight in my room, and also some darker images where it went slightly shady so you can see the contrast of how they look in different light settings – don’t think I edited them wrong!
The quality on these are great; I went all day without a single snag and it was right before I was thinking of taking them off that I managed to get one (always the case with me!) I really loved how they fit well, and they have a nice amount of stretch to them so you get even leg coverage from toe to bands. I did wonder what it would be like around the thighs, as they are slightly bigger – they were fine and it didn’t look like it overstretched here. I also like that these are made from recycled materials, so that’s a bonus point!
The fit was amazing. I thought it might be a little too small for me at first, but when I slightly stretched them out, they fit me so well and I didn’t have any problems throughout the day. I would recommend checking the sizing guide before purchasing to ensure you get the right one for you. I could have easily gone for a medium, however I wouldn’t have got them looking as sheer as they do here. I had a nice amount of stretch so there was no gapping to be found, and they done me well today.
The feel of these are not bad. I say not bad as I expected them to be a lot softer, however we are working with a matte finish so you have that slight grainy-feel to them compared to a silk coating. It’s not a bad thing; it was something I didn’t expect, especially when it’s stretched out on the legs compared to when I first took it out the packaging. These don’t irritate the skin in any way, so that is a bonus point. I also find that once you get over the initial feeling, I adjusted to that and I quite enjoyed them.
The pattern is super cute, and perfect for this time of year. To be honest, I would wear these all year round, but with the little flower buds, these make such a dainty pair. I love how they are dotted around the legs, and the great thing about this pair is you can pull out a colour from the buds and match your shoes to them. I didn’t do it this time as I wanted to keep it more formal than playful, but I would certainly pair these up with some fun colours next time. And as the pattern also works from the reinforced toes to the waistband, you can easily pair these up with whatever clothing piece you like.
The Toes & Ankle: I didn’t realise that we have big reinforced toes here! They didn’t seem that bad when I checked them out the packaging – but check these out! These fully cover the toes and also under as well. These are great if you’re wearing heels that cover most of that part, and not so great you you have shoes that show a bit of toe cleavage.
In regards to the reinforced toes, I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes and there was no pressure added either. I was super comfortable wearing these all day.
Around the feet and ankles, it is a smooth fitted finish as you can see below.
The Waistband & Gusset: now this is the dreamy part. I mean check out how lovely this looks; the buds leading upto the thin waistband. I really liked it, and these are perfect to wear with anything short as you don’t have a boxer brief poking out anywhere.
The waistband is great; it sits around the belly button on me, and does not move out of place. I didn’t feel it shimmy down or lose elasticity during the day. I had no issues with this pair.
As these are a thin band, these don’t dig into your waist or roll over itself at all. They stay sitting flush all day.
This is such a great pair, and I would happily recommend them if you can get your hands on them ASAP! I love the quality of this pair, and how super cute they look too.
