So before I start waffling on in my blog, let me point out that this will be very similar (if not identical) to my blog on Gatta Fancy 07 Tights which I did a while back. These are part of the same model, but a slightly different design, so don’t be surprised if you have read most of this blog before.
Anyways – so these I paired with a bodycon dress and wore to work. I was gonna save them to wear with a pair of shorts, but then I decided against it and thought let’s dress them up again 🙂
Colour: Nero / Black
Size: 2 – Small

Let’s pull out the dress that hardly comes out the play; the turtle neck bodycon! I paired these with my killer heels and finished off with rose gold hoops.

The Packaging: most of the time, the packaging for Gatta is the same. They only vary if they’re not fashion tights only or are part of a collection which are offering different styles. This one has the model on the front with the brand and make name, along with hosiery care, sizing and the following stated on the back:
“Tights for ladies, patterned, made of braided elastin type yarn, matt.”
Once you get in, these are neatly folded around card and flat packed, so you will need to certainly scrunch and roll to get them on.
On The Legs: so getting them on with hosiery gloves was easy enough to do. I would be mindful of any anklets you might wanna wear underneath. I scrunched and rolled both legs (always makes it easier) and then just lined up my design before I then adjust my waistband.
On the legs, they fit great. They don’t fall down at any stage and they stay put all day without any issues. I did find them slightly too snug to begin with, but they sorted themselves out during the day and loosened when I went to the ladies room!
The denier is actually nice and light, with the design having that mock over-knee effect to it, which I think works really well. They haven’t gone 40-60 denier like they normally would, but kept it light so it just flows. I really like the way they have done it; it doesn’t look too provocative or anything for work which makes a change!
The quality of them are fab; no snags or rips occurred during the day which is always amazing. I do have to say that I was at my desk most of the day so couldn’t really put them to the test like I normally would do on a daily basis.
The design is something that can work for an office, a casual outfit, and potentially a night out. It works from the toes to the top of the knee and then becomes a sheer plain denier upwards.
The Toes & Ankle: there is enough wiggle room for sure! These aren’t reinforced so you gotta be careful with sharp/long nails, otherwise you’re all good throughout the day.
Around the ankles, these stay smooth and no wrinkles are in sight which is always nice so you can wear heels and open types of footwear without having to worry!
The Waistband & Gusset:this is so comfortable. I never had any issues with Gatta waistbands before; they hold up well, they stay put and they for sure don’t roll over itself throughout the day regardless of how much you might be sitting.
If you’re into mock over-the-knee type of style hosiery, then I would recommend this pair. They are fun, they can be dressed up or down and the quality is pretty great for what you pay.
