These tights always amaze me, and yet it still makes me wanna keep buying more to try out. I normally wear these on its own to review, but I do tend to layer them with other pairs of hosiery.
If you missed my video reviews on similar pairs that I did a while back – catch them here:

I wanted to choose an edgy look today, hoping that these tights will blend in well. I wore my utility dress paired with my quilted boots.
Tights: Korean Fashion
Boots: New Look
Getting Them On: these are super thick so they are hard to scrunch and roll up the legs. I had to slightly tug them up gently, so I didn’t cause any damage. I shimmied them up the legs and set the in place.
Just to show you all the colour difference, I put one leg on and you can see that it look super light and very pale compared to my normal skin colour.
On The Legs: let me start with the colour. This is one that I am not too fond of to be honest; this is super light and so pale in comparison to my skin tone. I would certainly use this pair as a base and layer on top, but this is one that I would not wear on its own again. It’s fine if you are a similar tone to this colour, as it would blend well, especially if you have your arms out or other skin showing, but not when you’re a darker colour in comparison.
The quality of this pair is not bad at all. I like the fact that these have a thicker denier foot, before it becomes thick with a velvet plush finish from the ankle upwards. These do not snag or rip easily, as they are super thick to touch. I can see these lasting a little while if taken care of properly.
The fit of these were true to size, and worked well for me. They had enough stretch in them so I didn’t need to tug at them. I would check their sizing guide to make sure these would fit you, as I feel these would only fit a person upto a medium size. It would be a tight squeeze for anyone who is a size large upwards.
The feel of them are soft, and lovely to touch. They aren’t silky smooth, and don’t have a grainy finish either but they are comfortable that’s for sure. On the outside they feel like normal hosiery, and inside they are a lovely soft, velvety material that really keeps your legs warm and snug.
Now due to the thickness of these, wrinkling around the knees is expected. I know it doesn’t look great, but due to the material it is something you just need to ignore the best you can.
The Toes & Ankle: if you look up close, you can see where the tights end and the thickness of the leggings come in. I do like this as it makes it easier to pair footwear with it, otherwise the struggle is real.
The toes don’t have any reinforcement, however as it’s a thicker denier you will get some of reinforcement. I would advise keeping those nails short and smooth to ensure you don’t start ripping through them.
Around the feet and ankles, these are a semi-smooth finish; they are smooth when stretched like this, but wrinkling does occur when standing straight. Luckily I am in boots, so it’s covered.
The Waistband & Gusset: now I have to say I was not comfortable wearing these as these have the double backseam around the tushy. It was so awkward during the day, but there wasn’t much I could do. It felt like they were not tightly set in place; it felt a little airy and at one point, I thought they were falling down.
The waistband itself is a good band, which is pretty thick. It has plenty of stretch to it, and it doesn’t roll down on itself. One point I will make is the ribbing does dig in slightly, and you are left with markings from it.
These don’t come with a gusset due to the weird seams, so underwear is advised.
So not a bad base pair to layer with… But that’s it really. I like how comfortable they were on the inside and how they were on my legs. The quality is not bad either, but the seams at the top really did irritate me during the day.
