Le Bourget Bas Retro Stockings


After having a good break away from blogging and all that is going on with my Instagram, I decided to come back and carry on! The only difference this time is that I will be doing 1 post a day on social media, and you can find all other images right here!

The next few blogs that are being posted up are ones that I have pre-done in July before my IG account had issues.

So let me kickstart off the blog with a Le Bourget pair, which I have dressed up because why not?! I am in a good mood, and ready for the day!

The Review

The Packaging

Getting Them On: hosiery gloves on and we are rolling! I did my scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets. I smoothly rolled them up the legs, and secured them in place with my suspender belt.

On The Legs: I mean the shade is pretty spot on I must say… and with the flash on, there comes that shine! I absolutely love this shade, as it matches so well, and looks like I am not wearing any whatsoever. It gives such a lovely, smoothing look on the legs, with a subtle sun-kissed touch.

The quality is just brilliant; I love this brand for this reason, and as it’s the 1st time I’m trying their stockings – I am in love. I love that they fit so well, they don’t damage easily (to be fair I was super careful today) and they kept my legs looking fantastic all day.

The fit of these are true to size; to the point I could sit them high thigh so I can clasp them in place with ease. I don’t like wearing them lower down as it’s just uncomfortable but these were just perfect. There is a nice amount of stretch to them as well, so you get great leg coverage.

The feel of these are amazing. They are super soft, so smooth and absolutely one that you want to keep running your hands up and down. I loved being in these all day, as it felt like a 2nd skin on.

The Toes & Ankle: these come with light toe reinforcement to them, however I still made sure my nails were not too long or sharp before slipping into them.

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, there was no wrinkling during the day either.

The Bands: now I love a good contrast band, and these are just flawless. I love the black against the sun-kissed nude. These clasped on well, and stayed put throughout the whole day with no issues. I clasped them a little further down the welt, purely because I didn’t want them to slip in any way.

These hugged my thighs all day, and did eventually stretch out and take shape at the end of the day.

My Thoughts?

I think these are a brilliant pair, and I really enjoyed wearing them. I love the quality, the nude is just perfect and if you’re into stockings like I am – this is one I would recommend for sure.
