Gatta Ars Amandi 03 Holdups

Let’s shake this up a little and add a bit of spice to my outfit today! So this pair is a pair that I have seen floating about (not much though) and I had to get my hands on it to do a review on them…

I mean hosiery is sexy enough as it is, but dear God when it starts to add Karma Sutra to it, we are taking this to a whole new level!

I have done a few the Gatta Ars Amandi before, so if you haven’t had a read then hit the links below:

The Packaging: I have to admit is identical to the previous review I did (Gatta Ars Amandi Astrea 01 Tights) in terms of packaging. It’s a small cardboard box which you open out to get to your hosiery. The front of the packaging shows the model wearing them, and the back goes into more detail:

“Fun… is sometimes the beginning of love.

Ars Amandi – the art of love elation, sophisticated, slightly provocative, reveals the sensuality of the female body, engenders mutual desire and willingness to search new areas in the erotic map of the body dressed in sensual stockings, strip panty, fishnet stockings… Tempting sweet secret.”

“Ladies” stockings with self supporting top. Lycra type yarn, braided, matte, finished with a sexy lace with silicone.”

Once you get into the little box, you will find these shaped to the legs and feet, so it makes it easier to get your line up right to roll straight on.

Getting Them On:  I made sure I used gloves with these as the last time I managed to snag them a few times whilst getting them on, and I really don’t wanna be doing that again! I found these to be much easier to roll up the legs; they were fine going over anklets and they had a lovely smooth pull up the legs.


On The Legs: there are certainly a gorgeous matt finish for sure. I love the way they look on the legs, making them look real smooth and kinda toned?!?!?

The denier I am guessing is 20, which works perfectly with the sexy deep velvet band on top!

The fit of them are super; although if you are in-between sizes, I would recommend going one up as these do run small ever so slightly so you don’t wanna risk it.

The feel of them aren’t as rough as I encountered last time, which is nice as I hate it when it’s like that on the legs; even though they look great, you want them to feel that way too!

The quality is pretty coo,l to begin with, but during the day I managed to frigging snag these – so I wasn’t a happy bunny in the end! I have no idea how, but I looked down when I was showing my colleagues the band, and I saw it and nearly cried!

Now the design is so spicy; like Gatta you are amazeballs! I love the way they have done this on both bands, sitting in the centre of the high with a heavy background to make the couple stand out. I think it’s dead inventive and a pair I won’t be forgetting any time soon!


The Toes & Ankle: the toes I think are reinforced, but I haven’t seen that stated anywhere; I just took it from the foot sign at the back of the packaging. Either way, they haven’t ripped. There is plenty of wiggle room in them and super comfy to be in.

As these are like my perfect size, there certainly was no gatherings around the ankles, so pretty pleased with that 🙂


The Bands: I am seriously loving these! I love the detail; how intricate they look! Now going behind the band, you can see that these are double silicone stripped, which means they will hold up well. I had to really prise them away from each other this morning, meaning they will have some serious grip to them throughout the day… And they did.

They held up really well, regardless of how many times I actually did pull them up and down. They do have a slightly bit of stretch in them, but something to be mindful of as stretching them too much will cause them to loosen and not sit flush against the skin.



My Thoughts?

Seriously if you can, get yourself a pair. I love how exotic and different they are, and these can work not only in the bedroom but under any outfit to make you giggle. That is all I have been doing at work all day!

The quality is decent, the design is just amazeballs and overall these win as holdups!

  1. Hi Soni! I loved your review of those Gatta Ars Amandi, sheer black, hold-up stockings! I loved how smooth and sleek those sheer, black stockings look on your sexy, long legs. Those sheer, black stockings looked very sexy on your pretty feet and blue, painted toes too! I love how you paired the black, hold-up stockings with your long, grey jumper. Good fashion combo. Take care. 🙂 x

  2. The lace band is very sexy. I just wonder why the Kamasutra girl on the band is not wearing stockings… that would make them even sexier 😉
