Fiore Darla Tights

This pair reminds me of something similar I did a while back, where they look like leggings but are actually tights; Fiore Andrina Tights. I am excited to try this pair out as I wasn’t too keen on my last.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I had to take my time this morning to line these up correctly, so they are even and don’t look lopsided (like I usually look whilst doing this!)

I did my scrunch and roll, working up the feet and ankles, before slowly rolling into place on the legs.

On The Legs: so I realise I have a lot of images here. But I shall break it all down, starting off with the design first. I like the effect they have; from afar it looks like thicker denier leggings with a sheer bottom to toe. The back has a fair bit more going on, however I can’t say that the design is that visible. The finishing on this pair is super messy, and honestly quite confusing at times. It’s supposed to be a ribbon finishing off the pattern and dangling down, but up close as the design is quite messy, it can be hard to tell.

The quality of this pair can be SO much better, but once again it lacked. I managed to get a hole and ladders going up my foot, the finishing is messy and undone on the legs and honestly I was disappointed in them. They don’t feel like the Fiore I used to wear.

The fit of these are true to size, and I had no issue with them. I would advise going one up if you need extra material or are unsure. I had plenty of elasticity so I got even coverage on my legs.

The feel of these are nice; they are soft and smooth on the legs, and caused no irritation.

The Toes & Ankle: these don’t come with reinforced toes to them, which is a shame as it’s always nice to have them just in case. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkling. I did end up with a small hole; I think my heels might have caused it when I took them off for a sec, and then ended up being double laddered which is nice(!)

The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see below, the waistband is slim and holds up well. Luckily I had no issues here, ad they didn’t roll down on themselves at any point and they had plenty of stretch to them for my wear today.

These come with a cotton gusset, that sits flush against the skin too.

My Thoughts?

Not really my up of tea this pair – which is a shame as they are quite nice but honestly the quality could be much better.
