Yep there is some thicker deniers making an appearance on the blog today, purely because these have been sitting in my collection for some time now and I needed to get them reviewed!
Size: One Size
I went with some lighter colours (mainly Autumn colours for some strange reason) to pair with my 70 denier gloss tights. You could easily just wear black or opt for some lighter coloured clothing to really set the black gloss off, but I wanted to keep it slightly neutral.
Shoes: Core Collection

The Packaging: so not much to the packaging at all to be honest. There is no model or any type of information about the hosiery found on the plastic packaging. Just a small label with a sticker stating 70 denier.
When you get in, you will find these wrapped around plain card and horizontally folded so you don’t get the foot or leg shaping to it. I have to say these are pretty heavy to hold as well. I don’t think I have come across a heavy 70 denier pair before!
Getting Them On: so I did my little scrunch and roll, which took some time as it started to get thicker and harder to do so by the time I was down to the ankles. But I managed to get them up alright in the end so it’s all good!
These were fine getting on around the foot, around the ankles and up the leg too. I didn’t have to tug too much to get these on either which was a huge bonus!
On The Legs: now we have some serious shine going on! It would be so much better to show you in darker lighting with the flash on full, but we will have to make do with natural lighting and flash instead.
So the denier being 70 means you get ultimate coverage, and this is great for those who don’t like sheers or want a fuller coverage. I also think the shine works best on thicker denier hosiery, as you get such a deep gloss to them.
The quality of these are actually great, although I can’t say much about them being wet in the rain. We had a little drizzle this morning, and well when it dried on the legs it left little marks otherwise I literally had no issues in these throughout the day. I have to say I felt I had plenty of stretch in these throughout the day and they hug the legs really well too! They aren’t too tight or loose, which make them a great pair to be in!
The fit of these are great for a one size pair; you get a nice amount of elasticated stretch in them which can work for sizes up to large (I don’t think it could go any higher) however it may run a risk of becoming more sheer on the legs the more it’s stretched out.
The feel of these are great; they are so silky soft and really smooth on the legs. You can run your hands down them with ease, and won’t feel grainy. Although I say this being a smaller size, I won’t know what it would be like for larger sized individuals.
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes are reinforced which is great. I thought they would have been anyways without the additional piece that is added – not that I am complaining in any way!
I do have to say that you may find little bumps of extra material at the sides of the toes but I suppose this would be for those who have larger feet.
Around the ankles you will find this will wrinkle slightly as it’s a higher denier so it’s to be expected. Otherwise when stretched out, you will find a smooth fitted finish.
The Waistband: now this piece is something else. Not only is that band a super slim one, but it holds up so well and doesn’t roll down on itself at any point either! This sits around the belly button on me, and stays put. It is a little tight to begin with, but once you start moving about, it isn’t much of an issue.
These are actually decent and I would certainly recommend these for sure. They are a lovely pair for multiple sizes to wear, and they have a nice bit of gloss to them too.
