The Packaging


Getting Them On: they were super easy and really stretchy to get on, so I had no issues with them whatsoever. I did my scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets.



On The Legs: let me start off with the design and how funky they look! I wasn’t too sure about them to begin with, but these make such a great playful pair, especially when the darker months are to come. These remind me of a review I did a while back; Leg Avenue Woven Diamond Illusion Tights

The quality of these are actually really good; they didn’t feel cheap, they had a lot of stretch to them so you don’t get too much sheerness when they’re on and they are a lovely material. I didn’t snag these at all whilst I was in them, and to be honest they are pretty hard to destroy.

I did find towards the thighs that they do become slightly sheerer. This is due to the fact they are stretched out a lot more than the bottom of my legs, so something worth noting down if you’re trying to avoid that.

The fit is true to size; and great if you are a duo size too. I thought these could fit a S-M easily with the amount of stretch they had to them. I would still refer to their sizing guide before purchasing, but I think they are great.

The feel of them are super soft and smooth, and you have the pattern printed on top. They have a microfibre feel to them, which makes them glide up and down the legs with ease. These also don’t irritate the legs in any way either. Overall a good pair!!


The Toes & Ankle: these do not come with reinforced toes, however as these are a thick denier you should be good to go with long toenails. I made sure mine were smooth before getting into them to ensure I don’t end up damaging them on the 1st wear.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move and breathe without feeling cramped, and I had great coverage around the feet and ankles.

You will also notice that the design starts from the ankles and works its ways up; I think it makes it look super funky, although I wouldn’t have minded if it started from the toes upwards so I can wear sandals with them.



The Waistband & Gusset: the design works up to the gusset (or top thigh) so you can wear short clothing with it if you wish. I have to say I did like the band on these; it was comfortable, it was pretty thick and shaped so well to give me a great lasting fit.

These did not roll down at any point, or shimmy down my waist whilst I was on the move either.

The gusset as you can see is non-existent, so you may want to reconsider going commando in this pair unless you don’t mind. It is just a straight seam in the middle.



My Thoughts?

I think this brand is not bad at all; I liked their quality, I like the design and overall I enjoyed being in them to do this review. I would love to try out more of their designs in the future. Overall, I would recommend this brand 🙂
