A lot of you got a sneaky preview of this pair on my Patreon – one that I loved doing for work! I wanted something simple today, and opted for this pair to go with my t-shirt dress!
These are available on multiple websites, however I found them to be the cheapest on eBay!
Size: A/B – S/M
Materials: 83% polyamide, 17% elastane
Going with my black t-shirt dress, I added faux leather ankle stap court shoes to finish the look with this pair of hosiery today. You can easily swap them for biker/combat boots to be more appropriate for Autumn/Winter weather if heels are not for you.
Tights: Jonathan Aston
Heels: Dream Pairs
From The Website: Net tights with design featuring attractive side seam detail. The ultimate outfit accessory with unique and individual style. Soft micronet tights with opaque stripe detail all the way up both sides of leg, to waist band. Micronet toe.
83% Polyamide 17% Elastane
Made in Italy

please see size guide in images.
Getting Them On: with any type of net, I usually get the gloves out and start scrunching. I take my time getting them on, as I don’t want to damage the net in any way, and I also have a side seam to work with too. Lining this up took me a while, but I got there 10 minutes later ready to go out the door!
On The Legs: we have a fair bit going on with this design, but I love the different styles; double fishnet with the micronet side seam and a thicker toe. It gives a lot to the outfit, well even on its own it’s a statement! This pair isn’t something new as it’s been around for some time now, but I honestly love them!
One thing I will say is these help give definition to your legs, with that side seam stripe – it helps to define ad give a slimmer look!
The quality is lovely; they can snag and rip easily, but I managed to keep all hands and items away from the legs today to make sure they are looking as fire as when they first started the day. Care needs to be taken with this pair!
The fit of these will depend on your size; if you are Medium – you might find these to stretch out a little more and become a wider net on your legs compared to mine. Duo sizing helps when you’re in-between sizes or want that extra bit of stretch to them. Either way you can always go a size up and pop your legs in those if you want all the stretch in the world. I liked that I had enough, so there was no gapping to be found, and it was pretty even coverage on the legs too.
The feel of them aren’t as soft as what I have tried before with other similar net designs; these do have a grainy, semi-scratchy feel to them, and it took me a while to get used to them today before they settled down.
The Toes & Ankle: as you can see below, the toes have the sideseam coming down and acting as the reinforcement here. They are pretty small, and just covered my toenails.
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either. Around the feet and ankles, I have a fitted finish.
The Waistband & Gusset: slim line! That is what we are working with today; a nice slim waistband. I have to say these held up ok; I did feel the waistband coming slightly loose during my wear, but luckily my dress was keeping it pushed against me.
The band has plenty of stretch to it, but I feel this band is for the larger out of the 2 sizes. What I do like is that it is discreet under my clothing, which I was unsure it would be.
I do also like how you have the side seam working right under the waistband, so it’s kept consistent from toe to band.
A super funky pair I get to do for Spooky Season! I love the design of these, and they look amazing on. I wasn’t too keen on the waistband, but never mind – still would recommend these for you to try out!
