Fiore Marlena Stockings

I’m not gonna lie here, but I do miss my old IG. I had so many amazing outfits that I wore to work, and it’s so hard to think of what to wear at times. That literally used to be my go-to when I needed some inspo. As much as I love creating weird and wonderful outfits, I do like some simplicity at times, ad this outfit is all about this for Halloween.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: as I had wonky lined to start off with on the hosiery, I had to make sure when I was rolling these up, that I had to wiggle them a few times to make sure that I line up as straight as I can. Naturally these will move as I go about my day as these were not straight to begin with, but the best you can do is to fix it and carry on.

These were fine going around my anklets, and once set in place they were good to go.

On The Legs: as I mentioned above the seams were not sewn in straight to begin with, so it instantly makes it harder to work with. I have to admit my seams did end up moving around during the day, however it wasn’t too hard to fix. I do like that these start under the reinforced to and works right up to the welt design with no breaks in-between.

The quality of these are pretty good, and not too bad for a Fiore pair. As much as I like this brand, they are on the cheaper end which means the quality will lack from time to time, and I have seen that over the years. This pair isn’t the greatest but it does the job for sure if you need a cheap and cheerful pair. I didn’t manage to snag these at all during the day, however as soon as I took them off, they ended up snagging which I was super annoyed about!

One thing I do like is how sheer they are on the legs; they don’t look like 20 denier at all, but more like 10-15!

The fit of these were true to size, and I had more than enough elasticity to sit these super high on the thighs. I didn’t feel that I needed to go one size up for that extra bit of material, as this pair was more than enough. There was no gapping to be found either, especially behind the knees.

The feel of these are so soft, and super sensual. I loved being in this pair as they are quite thin so you don’t feel them on at all. These did not irritate my legs either, so a winning pair!

The Toes & Ankle: the toe area is reinforced, and invisible! I love it when companies do that so it makes it easier if I wish to switch up my shoes to something that bares more toe. I do have the seam starting from there the reinforcement ends – which is visible when you slip into your pair.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move, and there was no pressure added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, it was a lovely smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Bands: so I have a great design under the welt itself, which is super cool and just adds to the overall look. It’s a triple band effect, which doesn’t line up correctly at the back unfortunately.

These are nice and stretchy, which means it isn’t squeezing my thighs during the day under my dress. The clasps hook on well to these too, and don’t budge at all.

My Thoughts?

I really like these stockings; they’re simple, they’re effective and they do the job. They are a pair that would add to any outfit for a chic look.
