My Outfit

I instantly knew whcih dress I was gonna be pairing up with these tights, but the shoes were ones that I didn’t think I was going to end up going for. I was gonna opt for sandals, maybe silver ones – and then changed my mind when I thought pearls would look super sweet paired with this outfit.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I’ll go into more detail below, but as soon as I got these out the packaging and onto my legs, there were little rubber bits EVERYWHERE! I kept trying to brush them off, but I felt I was making it much worse so just left it to my little lint roller to sort out.

I did my scrunch and roll up the legs, and then set in place when I was happy. There is no need to keep them symmetrical here.

On The Legs: so let me start off with this bittiness drama I had this morning. As great as this floral design is with the rubber-like texture on top of the tights, this leaves such a mess! I did my lint roller on them to pick up majority of it, so you see the design more and not the crackled bits. But it only ended up getting slightly worse during the day; they rub off quite quickly, yet when I stretch it out myself or rub them with my hand, it doesn’t seem to budge at all, so I have no idea how it is managing to crumble off?!

With the floral design, I actually love it; I love the fact it looks so dainty against the nude base and it’s so faint until you come up close. This is a pair I truly do love, and can see myself styling so many ways, but I just can’t deal with the crumbly mess from the design!

The quality of this pair is really nice, bar the mess. I love how these managed to stay snag-free and damage-free all day long.

The fit of these are true to size, and were such a pleasure to be in. I had plenty of elasticity, so there was no gaping around the knees or ankles.

The feel of these are really soft; the base of the tights were lovely against the skin and there were no issues to be found. The top of the tights you feel the floral design; it has a rubbery-like texture to them which does look beautiful.

The Toes & Ankle: these come with invisible reinforced toes to them, which you can just about make out when you look up close on the toes. They blend in so well, honestly it was hard for me to tell at first.

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, I had a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: the design stops at the top of the thighs and becomes a simple sheer piece leading to the waistband. The band itself is slim and has a chunk of reinforcement underneath it, which I like.

The band holds up really well, and has a nice amount of stretch to them. These come with a cotton gusset, that sits flush against the skin too.

My Thoughts?

Such a beautiful pair, and one I instantly fell in love with and for good reason. The only downside was the design coming off from time to time, but apart from that I think they’re a great pair!
