We are back trying out another ‘faux’ famous brand from Magee Millinery!
This is another pair that I have purchased that I wanted to try out and see whether they are worth paying the price for!
Size: One Size
Denier: Around 20-30
Website: Magee Millinery – Lucy Tights
I went super chic with today’s outfit; I wanted to pair up my turtle neck jumper dress with some ankle boots (to change it up a little) with this statement pair.
Dress: New Look
Tights: Magee Millinary
Boots: New Look
On The Legs: I gotta say I really like the design of these. As much as I like designer brands, it hurts me to think about the price you pay for something that may not last you as long, so a fake pair of LV tights is the way to go. I like how it’s a simple pattern all over the legs against the black sheerness. This is certainly a pair you can dress up or down, smart or casual.
The quality isn’t so great I have to admit; at first I thought they were too good to be true, but I found they snag so EASILY without me knowing. I wasn’t impressed with that at all – even though they are a fake pair, it’s still really bad that they aren’t good quality. I also found they have patches on the legs, where it looks a little lighter. I noticed it more on my thighs than anywhere else, which I thought was super odd. I didn’t know if that had to do with them being stretched out or if it was a defect when they were made.
I will also mention that they logos do stick to each other, so you will need to prise them away before getting them on. This took me around 10 minutes to do (as I was doing it gently).
The fit of these are ok, but I will say these are not a one size pair. These would fit XS-M with no issues, but if you are a little larger than that, I would not recommend them to you. I felt I had just about enough stretch in them to get decent leg coverage.
The feel of them are smooth and soft to touch, both inside and out. They don’t feel rough and they don’t irritate the legs, so that’s a bonus!
The Toes & Ankle: are reinforced, however I will advise you to be careful with long/sharp nails before getting these on. As the quality isn’t too great, I can see these ripping easily if your nails aren’t kept well – I know reinforced toes are supposed to stop that from happening, but I don’t really trust this pair.
I did have plenty if wiggle room for my toes, however I do feel if you are larger than UK 5-6, you may feel that your toes might be a little cramped.
Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkles. You will also see in the packaging video that the design starts around the ankles; the whole foot section is completely plain. I for one, am not a fan of this!
The Waistband & Gusset: once again not showing my waistband here, so please refer to the packing video for another look. I have to say this wasn’t the greatest band; I felt it was a little too tight around the waist for me and it has that HORRIBLE double seam on the tushy that makes it feel super uncomfortable. I have no idea why they do this, but I really wish they didn’t. I kept secretly trying to move it when no-one was looking as it was so uncomfortable for me to be in.
Oh I forgot to mention, the waistband does roll down on itself during the day, so that is something to certainly watch out for if you’re wearing anything fitted/bodycon.
These do have a small gusset to them, however it is a very small palmed-sized piece in the centre, so you have the option to go commando or wear underwear if you wish.
Overall they are not a bad pair, but I felt it was a little too much hassle for me. I loved the design, and the overall look but I found too many negative points about them.
