Mock thigh highs, here we come! I decided to do a mini skirt pairing with these, just to change it up a little. These are a great pair to bring out now, as the colder weather is here and I don’t want to rely on thicker deniers all the time.

Getting Them On: these are a size bigger than what I usually go for, so I had a nice amount of material to work with, to the point I did not need to tug up at all. I did my scrunch and roll and just glided them up the legs before setting them in place.
These were also fine going over anklets too!
On The Legs: I like that these are super minimalistic with a lovely floral side design to them. They literally look like I’m wearing socks on top of a pair of tights, and I haven’t done that type of look in so long.
The quality of this pair is pretty good; I managed to snag the opaque part but luckily you can’t tell. They lasted me really ell today, with no other issues or drama.
The fit was great, however I will say if I has the size smaller I feel these wouldn’t look as opaque on the lower leg, and the design on either side would be stretched out more than compact as it is currently sitting. I would have preferred a smaller size, but these were just as good. If you like having extra material, then I would advise going one size up from normal.
The feel of these are so good! They are super soft and really smooth on the legs. These are microfiber, which I know some people don’t like, and I have to admit I did have to keep brushing them from time to time as they kept attracting particles. They didn’t irritate the legs at all, and I loved being in them all day.
The Toes & Ankle: I feel these come with some sort of reinforced toe due to the faint line going across the front of them. I am not too sure, so don’t quote me on this please! I do feel as these are quite thick, it could act as a reinforcement anyways. I had plennty of wiggle room around my toes, and no pressure ws added duing my wear.
Around the feet and ankles, it was a little wrinkled due to the thick denier and a little extra material that had settled here.
The Waistband & Gusset: as the mid thigh onwards becomes more sheer, I am working with a T-band and a lot of sheer-y goodness around the waist. The band itself is great, and holds up well. There is also plenty of stretch to them, so they sit nicely on the waist.
These come with a cotton gusset, that sits flush against the skin too.
Not a bad pair at all I must say. I do like Gabriella, however I didn’t know how this pair was going to be. I liked the whole mock look, and the quality was pretty good too. I would certainly recommend if you like this type of style.
