It has been so long since I have been in a Miss O pair, and I am super psyched to see how these stockings are gonna turn out!
I bought these off eBay some time ago, however I managed to find a supplier online and popped their details below 🙂

So trying something a little different today; I wanted to do a bralette with this skirt but then added a denim shirt to give it a little oomph. This makes it a little more acceptable for work lol. I paired with my tan suede court shoes to finish off the look.

On The Legs: I need to start this off with the colour… And how horrible it looks on the legs. I am not a fan of this at all, and if anything I was dying to take them off after my shoot. They did not suit my skin tone at all; it made my legs look way too pasty and I was so uncomfortable wearing them. I despise it when the colour is too light for me, yet I still wanted to review them for you all to show you what it is like once they are on. It’s one thing seeing it on the model, and another when it’s on your legs. I didn’t think it was going to be that bad, until I got them on and looked in the mirror.
The quality of these are decent; they don’t snag too easily which is a good thing, but you still need to be cautious when you’re in them. They don’t feel cheap which is a good thing too.
The fit of these are true to size; they are a duo size so they have plenty of stretch in them to make sure that they hug the legs well and there are no wrinkles around the knees and ankles. I would still check the sizing guide to ensure you get the correct size for your legs.
The feel of these are super silky and are lovely to touch; they have a lovely smooth coating to them which you can certainly feel as soon as you get them on. I will say the backseam does pop out, so you will find it is a little bumpy otherwise they are great. These also don’t irritate the legs at all.
I will add these have a lovely shimmer shine to them; it is more a lustre shine than an oil one, which would look amazing if they were not too light for my legs.
The Toes & Ankle: as you can see the backseam starts from the reinforced toes and works its way up to the welt. The reinforced toe is pretty much invisible, which makes it great to wear with sandals and open toe sandals.
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and it was a great fit around the feet and ankles too.
Before I forget to add this, I didn’t find it an issue to be stepping on the backseam. These were not too stiff and do not dig into your feet when you’re on them.
The Bands: I think the only part of these stockings I like is this band. It is a lot darker and a thicker denier than the rest of the leg, and it looks incredible. If I had this colour all the way down the legs, I wouldn’t have had any complaints!!
My suspender belt clasped on well to the welts and I had no issues of them falling down at any stage. They also stretch out and open up, so they don’t end up squeezing your thighs when you’re in them.
I’m not gonna lie, but I did not like this pair. The colouring put me off so much, that all I saw was negative points. If it was a tan, we would not have a problem. But I was certainly not feeling these, as you can probably tell from my review.
