I know a lot of people are gonna be asking ‘Where is the hosiery?‘ – however this was gifted a while back and I wanted to get a review done on them for the sake of it 🙂
I wanted to dress up a tad as we can’t really go out much and mingle – plus this is more of a Summer look rather than Winter lol (unless you feel like dressing up at home like I am)
Materials: 95% Cotton, 5% Elastane
I decided I wanted to create a smart casual look with the shorts today, so I paired up a plain strap-back crop top and added a metallic blazer on top. I would pair with black court shoes or some chunky boots to finish off the look. Yep you can also add tights underneath if you wish!
Crop Top: Forevere21

Getting Them On: a super glide right up the legs and popping in place before we flaunt them! They are super easy to get on, with no issues to report.
On The Legs: I will say I really like how comfortable these shorts are. They have enough stretch in them so they hug your legs rather than squeezing the life outta them. These sit mid-thigh on me as you can see below, and I love how versatile these can be. You can wear them on their own like I am, you can wear them under clothing, you can pair with hosiery, layer etc. There are so many ways these can work for you.
They are super soft to touch, both inside and out and they really don’t irritate the legs either. You also have the option to wear hosiery underneath if you wish (for reviewing purposes, I didn’t this time).
The fit is spot on; these were perfect for my size. I didn’t find them too big or too tight. That stretch image is to show you how much elasticity the band has to it. I would recommend going a size up if you’re unsure, but they do fit great I have to say.
Now the question that a lot of people are thinking – “Are these tights around the private parts?” – I will say these aren’t at all. They sit flush against the skin and if you do feel they are shaping to your private areas, I will say change your underwear or maybe find alternative solutions.
I would happily recommend them as I love how comfortable these are, and how soft they are to wear. These are certainly a favourite of mine!
