I am making my way through so many new brands, and it really annoys me that I cannot find any background information on them for you all. This is another from a great collection I have been working my way through, which was kindly gifted!
Size: Small (4’10” – 5’2″)
Denier: Around 15-20
Materials: 100% Nylon
Price & Website: Unknown
I thought I would be bold with my colours today, so I opted for my orange bodysuit with my navy and orange patterned mini skirt. You can make this look causal by adding white pumps or some short kitten heeled shoes.
Bodysuit: Femme Luxe
The Packaging: proper retro packaging here and I really like it! The front shows the model, along with the brand name, size, colour and price.
Flipping over it gives you a little about the pair inside along with the sizing guide. I am praying these will fit me!
When you get in, you will find them with foot and leg shaping, folded neatly around plain card.
Getting Them On: I did my little scrunch and roll from the toes to the ankles, went gently over my anklets and then rolled the rest up the legs.
On The Legs: well this is an interesting colour that I rarely come across. This really looked like I fake tanned my legs from a distance if you compare it to the rest of me. I have to say it is quite nice, but would work better if I had my arms covered so it would look a little natural. I added flash so you can see how it looks a little more sheer and natural rather than in natural lighting. I also saw this had a semi-shine to them, which I honestly didn’t think it would have considering these are a matte finish.
The quality of them is what you pay for; it feels quite cheap to touch and super rough I have to admit. I will speak about that a little further down. I didn’t manage to snag these at all, which is a great thing and the stretch is barely there to be honest.
The fit of these ran a little small for me once again, and that means that I had to really tug these up the legs to make sure they try and sit flush against the skin. I had the saving grace of my bodysuit which actually kept them up but I did feel it feel super tight on the legs though. This made it slightly hard to sit let alone walk about.
The feel I mentioned is quite rough; as these have been stretched out more than they should, it didn’t help with the grainy feel you get too. This did also irritate my skin a little from time to time, so if you see any scratch marks, you’ll know why.
The Toes & Ankle: have reinforcement to them and I am so happy here. It actually curves around the sides too a little, which I thought was different but really liked. I started off with some wiggle room, but this disappeared when I had to tug them up the legs. My toes ended up with tons of pressure.
Around the feet and ankles, it’s certainly a fitted finish with no wrinkles.
The Waistband & Gusset: so these come with a boxer brief to them which you can faintly see in the images below. This would end top-mid thigh, however it sat higher as these were pulled up a lot.
Now the waistband was not bad as it did its job in a way. It’s a shame these ran small as I’m sure they would have been a decent pair for sure. I felt there was enough elasticity in the waistband and they would have held up well with the bodysuit doing most of the work.
The gusset is non-existent here.
Not a bad pair, but I wish it wasn’t so small so I could really get to see what they would be like without all the hassle. The colour was interesting I have to say, but not bad though if you’re after a darker tan look on the legs.
