Gipsy 40D Metallic Tights

Are you ready for some high shine? Well I sure am! Now the amazing thing about these are not only are they glossy as anything, but being 40 denier these cover those un-shaved or uneven tanned legs so well!

I opted for rose gold in this shade as I thought it would work well giving that gorgeous tanned glow on the legs rather than going for darker shades.

My Outfit

Let’s go brighter than bright by pairing an orange cami top with my multi-coloured tulip skirt. As the skirt has a mix of colours, I thought it would be great to bring out orange (instead of pink) to really create a out there look seeing as my legs are taking over the limelight! I also added glitzy booties to go extra!

I kept jewellery to a minimum with this look 🙂

The Packaging: came open (which I wasn’t too pleased about as it was coming from Amazon and I didn’t want them to get damaged). Luckily they were ok, but I am always weary!

Anyways there is not much to say about the packaging to be honest; it’s simple, very basic and doesn’t delve into a lot of detail compared to the website. The back of the packaging mentions more about the sizing and hosiery care.

Once you unfold these out the packaging (thank goodness there is no card insert here), you can see these are flat packed and look super thick. I got to say I was proper hesitant to wear these in the heat!


Getting Them On: so you can use gloves, but this time I didn’t as they were thick and proper silky so it would have been easy to roll on. I did my usual scrunch and roll and up they went with ease. These are fine going over anklets too by the way 🙂

It was amazing when I was getting them on; they just looked so thick and shiny, and instantly transformed my legs to look like doll’s legs LOL!


On The Legs: now we are talking super gloss here! I haven’t seen anything like this before in a 40 denier that can give off such shine! Like I mentioned before, these made my legs look so fake in a way, but I didn’t care because they looked super awesome!

The denier is 40, so yep this won’t work in mega heat, but seeing as I was in the office all day and it was cool, I was alright. The 40 helps to give it that real thick shine compared to those 15 deniers. It’s a proper glossy super coverage for the legs, but it still makes them look quite bare (if you get what I mean). Like you could have scars and veins on the legs, but with these on they cover them completely yet still look bare. I can’t explain it well, but they look so cool!

The quality of these are great to begin with, but bear in mind that they can scuff real bad real quick. They managed to do that against my desk today and then on my boots, which left a horrible patch on the legs. It’s not something that is totally noticeable but once you know you’ve done it, you just stare…

The fit and feel is just right; these are one size and super stretchy, so you do feel comfortable in these throughout the day. They hug the legs so well and they don’t fall down or feel loose on the legs either. The feel of these are to die for; they are super extra silky smooth to touch!


The Toes & Ankle: as you can see, these are pretty much blocked out; so you don’t need to worry about reinforced toes! They aren’t tight on your feet and around the toes, which is great if you’re spending all day in them 🙂

Around the ankles, you get a lovely flush finish; and the fact that my anklets are pretty much hidden!


The Waistband: so the only downside to these is that throughout the day, they roll over themselves leaving you with a bumpy waistband – not great when you’re wearing bodycons! They were fine throughout the day, and I did put these to the test by pulling them down and up and stretching them a few times to see their durability.

They did well – until I came home to do my pictures and saw that they were rolled up – no wonder they felt kinda tight by the end of the day!



My Thoughts?

I think these are so worth it; they’re cheap, they are durable (minus me scuffing them up during the day) and that gloss is to die for. I love the fact that they are a lovely golden-y colour which works for summer (I’m sure you can get them in various colours if you aren’t feeling this one).

The only downside was the waistband, but hey!

  1. You are exactly right with your review I myself bought one of each color. After my first purchase I bought another of each color because I loved the glossy look and the feel plus the way they made my legs look. Have had these for over a year and they still look great on and enjoy wearing these and are a must have in my thoughts.

  2. The Italians know a thing or two about a girls legs….and all for £5.20. 😍 Now that’s a bargain.
    Utter perfection Miss.
    Your legs look absolutely incredible ❤👌😛
