And hello Fiore with another pair of really cool tights! I mean seriously who comes up with these designs as I totally love them! I think they’re so fresh, so original and they can be worn to work as well (if your place isn’t too strict!)
I decided against doing mine for work, and instead went for a more laid back but still dressy look.

Now let’s create a girly look this time – very simple basic and does the job. I wore my oversized jumper paired with my platform boots. I thought it worked to just be strolling around town for the day and snug enough too!

Backseamed Zipper Design
Sheer to Waist Brief
The Packaging: as most of their new packaging, you will find the model doubled on the front of the packaging; one from afar and one close up showing off the design. The back goes into very little detail about the hosiery.
When you get in, you will find these wrapped around card and in their own plastic pouch. I got these out and examined as I do, and found that these already had small snags in them! I was dead upset, but what can I do hey? I am hoping it’s just them and I don’t end up finding any more!
Getting Them On: so after finding those pretty little snags, I had to make sure I took my time, so they don’t end up becoming bigger or even worse – RUNS! Whilst trying to be careful, I also had to do the seams as well.
The good thing about these is that they start from the ankle, so you don’t need to line up from the soles, but god it’s still a mission to get these straight. as my legs are quite bent anyways, it was even harder – I wish I could just roll them in a straight line up the legs…
On The Legs: so as you can see these are looking real nice with that semi-matte finish to them. I say semi as these have a small amount of shine to them; nothing too in your face but quite subtle.
The denier is great to help emphasise that back zipper design and also that thin band that goes around the front of the legs. I feel the design itself is around 30-40 denier; nothing too heavy so it’s kept as an all-rounder light pair.
The quality of these are ok; I find find these already snagged as soon as I took them out the packaging, so not much I could do there but be careful from thereon so I don’t end up creating more!
The fit of these are perfect; they fit my legs really well and there was a nice amount of stretch in them as well, so it allowed me to sit the design wherever I wanted it to (in terms of height). The feel of these are as most pairs; smooth, soft and really nice to touch. they give that lovely slim-leg look as well, which I quite like depending on your outfit.
The design itself is so unique; I love that a zip replaces a backseam and then turns it into this thigh piece after. I wasn’t too sure on the bands at the front to begin with, but I suppose when you’re looking face on, it seems intriguing and that’s when it’s your que to turn around and walk!
It’s something different, but in such a creative way.
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes are not reinforced, but that shouldn’t be an issue if your nails aren’t too long or sharp. This also means it’s perfect to pair up with sandals or any other form of open toe or peep toe heels. I know I did boots with mine, but I would do heels with these.
These have plenty of wiggle room in them and no pressure is added around the toes either. Around the ankles, it’s a smooth flush finish.
The Waistband: has been good to me today. It has held up well, and it hasn’t rolled down or been a pain in my sides! There is a nice amount of stretch in these, which I think is perfect for a good grip during the day.
I would recommend these for design purposes more than anything. I felt the quality lacked a little this time, otherwise they would have made such a good pair! The fit and everything else was ok, but honestly I don’t see these lasting many wears!
