I really wanted to do grey today for some reason; I really don’t know why and I thought seeing as I was out and about today with the weather being crap, the jumper was out!
This is a pair that I have been saving back, and today was the day that I was going to get them out and rock. I know it probably isn’t the best outfit to put with it, but I just wanted these to be on my legs today regardless of what I wear!
Now let me make you aware that the spec below is based on the packaging and information taken from eBay as on the official Gatta website, they were not available.
Size: 2 / Small
Materials: 95% Polyamide / 5% Elastane
Website: eBay Gatta Lorien 01 Tights
So I went with my grey slash neck jumper, with my grey peep toe shoes. I kept it basic, but it was enough as the tights gave it everything else!
I left my hair down and specs on and rolled out the house!
Shoes: Carvela Kurt Geiger

The Packaging: the front shows the model wearing them (this time it’s a real life one) and then all the lowdown about the tights, sizing, materials etc. at the back:
“Tights for ladies, patterned, made of braided elastan type yarn, matt.”
When They’re On: oh my God! I instantly fell in love with them. They are quite fitted when you try to scrunch and roll, but that just tells you that these will be tight on you skin – which will give you some quite nice shaping! I love it when hosiery does that – actually makes your legs look better than they are! You can instantly tell that these are a good quality pair, and wouldn’t become loose on the legs after a day’s wear!
The Toes: now I apologise as I’m still not wearing nail varnish so no colour pops through! But the toes on these are just a gorgeous fit. They’re shaped instantly to them, but you still have wiggle room so you don’t feel like they’re being squashed all day. It’s even better if you’re wearing them with peep toes like I am!
The Waistband: it’s all patterned from the toes to the band itself. The band is average sized, and it sits just above the belly button if not on it. It’s a nice comfort fit and you don’t feel it digging into you at any point during the day! It doesn’t lose elasticity either so a bonus there!
How The Feel: just divine. They cling onto my legs and stay that way until I take them off. They’re actually pretty smooth to touch even though they look a little rough, and the design is just beautiful. For a pair that looks simple and boring, it actually does subtly jazz your outfit up – especially if you’re wearing them to work! I have to admit they’re darker on the bottom half than the top as my thighs are chunky, so expect that fade from bottom to top! I quite like it, but others may not so just be mindful!
Simple, beautiful and does the job like it should. No snags, no bad points, just pure bliss! I really do love these tights; they do my legs wonders and actually make them slightly slimmer than they are so that’s a bonus! I love that these don’t have a cut off line under the bum as it means short shorts and miniskirts are a must with these!
Gatta you have done well!
