Merry Style MS 226 Stockings

Now we have Merry Style returning back to the blog, after ages of being away! This pair I was intrigued to check out as I normally review their tights and holdups (and rarely do their stockings).

This whole outfit was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist – and you can find the items in my ‘Idea Lists‘.

My Outfit

I normally don’t do coral, however I wanted to give it a go as I loved how this dress looked online. I paired this up with my flat white slingback shoes. I wanted to go flat this time as it makes a nice change – don’t you think?

The Packaging

Getting Them On: well these are super easy and a lovely glide up the legs. I did my scrunch and roll, as I had to slowly go over my anklets before I could shimmy these up the legs. I sat mine a little higher, as these had enough stretch in them for me to do so.

I wore my 4 clasp suspender belt with these to hold them in place – I went lower on clasps as I had a longer dress so didn’t need any extra support.

On The Legs: I got the sunlight at the best time for most of these images. I didn’t want to use flash, and I am so glad I timed it right. So I have a mix of normal lighting and sun-hit images so you can see the difference.

Let me start off by saying this colour is gorgeous. It’s given me a damn good tan effortlessly – and I am all here for it. I love how it still looks super subtle against my skin tone, and works so well. I know finding the right nude can be hard, but these are perfect!

The quality of them are really good too. Even if I did snag these, you won’t really see where I have unless you look up close. I didn’t snag these by the way, but you get my point. These had a nice amount of stretch in them as well, so I could sit them higher up the thigh and it didn’t compromise the material at all.

The fit was great for my size; as I mentioned I had plenty of stretch in them and there was no gapping either. I felt these were he right size for me. I would recommend you check the sizing guide just so you get the right size for your legs; it helps with the duo sizing and if you’re in-between sizes.

The feel of them are amazing; they are super soft and really smooth on the legs. I had a gorgeous glide up the legs, with no fuss. These also don’t irritate the legs in any way either, which always helps. I lasted all day in them without an issues. And yes you do get that noise when you brush your legs past one another too!

The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, however they aren’t that noticeable. They stop just under the toes, but as they are the same shade as the rest of the legs, you can’t really tell. This means they are perfect to wear with any foot wear you like; sandals, peep toes, court shoes, pumps, trainers etc. You name it – you’re covered.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added during the day either. The seams also stay put under the toenails too.

Around the feet and ankles, I had a lovely smooth finish, with no wrinkles so it looks like I’m not wearing any hosiery from afar.

The Bands: I had great welts to work with today. These have a lovely amount of stretch to them and the added bonus is that they’re reinforced.

My clasps hooked on well to these, and did not budge once clipped into place. Let me just say the bands are super smooth and not grainy like some can be – which means some clasps might not be able to hook on for too long. I wold advise with plastic/metal combo as that works for all!

Anyways back to the welt – they are great. They stretched out lovely around the thighs and not once did they squeeze my legs. I will say once you’re done they don’t go back into their original shape.

My Thoughts?

I really love this pair – and it’s such a beautiful colour too. I love the quality, the fit was perfect and I could be in these all day and all night! I think they are totally worth the money and I would happily recommend them!
