Happy Fishnet Friyayyyyy babes! I thought I had done this pair before, but I realised I was mistaking it for the Jonathan Aston Bambi Net Tights that I have previously reviewed. I do like me some bold net tights, and these were right up my street, especially with this outfit.
Size: A/B / Small/Medium
Denier: Approx 60
Materials: 79% Polyamide, 20% Elastane, 1% Cotton
Creating statements this Friyay – because why not? I paired my satin pink shirt with my faux leather quilted mini skirt and added matching court shoes to finish the look.
Skirt: River Island
Tights: Jonathan Aston
From The Website: Look beautiful and feel fabulous with these Jonathan Aston Spot Net Tights. These fashion tights have the classic polka dot on net making them fun and fashionable to wear. These black pantyhose are made from smooth cotton and stretch fabric making them incredibly comfortable to wear. Pair these tights with a mini dress and high heels to achieve an eye-catching dinner ensemble. 80% Polyamide 20% Elastane
Comfortable to Wear
Getting Them On: now this baffled me when getting them on. There was a lot of material, so instantly I thought there wasn’t much elastane to them. As I was getting them on doing my scrunch and roll technique – I felt there was still too much material, and as soon as I got to the top of my thigh I had a whole bunch left. If I pushed it all down, you wouldn’t be able to see the netting well. So I had to keep the extra hidden under my skirt hoping they wouldn’t fall down during the day.
Around the anklets, they were fine as I made sure I stretched over them instead of rolling up against it.
On The Legs: feeling a little hypnotised looking at these for a while now! I love these types of patterns as they are effortlessly striking – and anything effortless is something I love when it comes to outfit pairing. These are a lovely circle net instead of the usual fence net style – which makes it all the more interesting.
The quality are pretty decent, however I felt these aren’t the same as what I am used to with Jonathan Aston pairs. I felt they were cheaply made when you touch them in my opinion. Luckily these experienced no damages during my wear, so they did last me the whole day with no aggro.
The fit of these are just extraordinary – and not in a good way. If I am honest, these could fit a larger size with the amount of material I have in these. I don’t mind it as I can easily hide it under this skirt, but if I was to wear these with a bodycon dress I would have a problem for sure. Apart from that, they fit the legs just fine with no gapping.
The feel of them I mentioned are a little rough, but not too bad that it irritates my skin. I expected them to be pretty smooth, but in fact they weren’t, which was a shame.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, in a darker denier as shown below. These cover the toes front and back, and are small enough so they don’t show when wearing heels like mine.
There was no pressure added to the toes during my wear, and there was plenty of wiggle room too.
Around the feet and ankles, there was no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: as shown below, these come with a thin waistband and a lot of netting underneath so you can wear anything short with these and not have to worry about a boxer brief showing through. The band itself holds up really well, and has plenty of elasticity in them so it hugs the waist well.
A pair that I like but unfortunately there was way too much material for my liking. I love the look of them, but it did let me down slightly.
