I know I know that I am in some thicker denier, but these I really had to try out. I got my hands on these a few weeks ago, and I was intrigued, and I didn’t want to wait a few months to try them out.

I really like this outfit; I went monochrome for the sake of it and I love the way it turned out. I paired my vest top with a thin blazer, and I added some patterned shorts to give it a little oomph. To make it a little more edgy, I went with my heeled shoe boots instead of court shoes to finish the look.

Pack of two pairs
Getting Them On: I cannot tell you how great these are to glide on the legs! I did my scrunch and roll, and I was in awe of how SOFT these feel. I could just pull them up and down all day if I am honest, but let’s not do that as I have a review to write.
Oh and these were completely fine going over my anklets too.
On The Legs: I have to say these are great! They give great coverage on the legs without looking like thick winter tights. I really like 30-40 deniers as they are that nice in-between of a sheer pair and a thick pair.
The quality of this pair is really nice. I like how they fit the legs really well, and they have lasted all day without any snags appearing too. I didn’t have any issues with this pair at all, and the best part is even if I did – I have an extra pair as a backup.
The fit of these are true to size, with a nice amount of stretch to them to give even coverage. I didn’t see any gapping around the knees or ankles either. I would recommend checking their sizing guide to make sure you get the correct pair (although there is no harm going a size up if needs be).
The feel of them are INCREDIBLE! I absolutely love how soft and silky smooth they are on the legs, and they have felt like that from the start of my day to the end. I absolutely love how comfortable and cosy they kept my legs, and no I didn’t feel any extra heat being produced whilst I was in them.
The Toes & Ankle: as far as I am aware, I believe these don’t have reinforced toes. This is a shame as this would have been the perfect pair if that was present. I will say I did have plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and no pressure was added either. I had a nice amount of material to cover my toes well.
Around the feet and ankles, it was a smooth and fitted finish with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: so this pair comes with a great waistband and a reinforced boxer brief to them. The band is quite a thick one, but sits so well around the waist nicely. I had plenty of stretch to them without it hugging me too tight, and these did not roll down or over itself at any point either.
The reinforced part is that extra added bonus, which is quite discreet to the tights. Luckily these did not show under my shorts!
I really do like this pair, and I feel I need to get more from this brand to see if they are all as good as these. I loved the quality, the fit was amazing and that feeling I had wearing them is just GORGEOUS! I would happily recommend these!
