Oroblu Magie 20 Satin Tights

Let me just mention here that I did not know the potential these tights had until I got them on and hit flash! I casually just picked up a pair a while back as I hadn’t been in Oroblu for a while, and was super shocked when I got them on the legs to review.

I bought this pair from TKMaxx for a discounted price, however I have shared a link below where you can purchase them directly from UKTights.

The Review

From The Website:  These Magie 20 tights from Oroblu have a sheer leg with a brilliant high lustre finish. Excellent quality tights with a high elastane content for exceptional fit. Sheer to waist with flat seams and a reinforced toe. Great value for money as they are delivered to you from one of Italy’s leading manufacturers.

The Packaging: we are looking at a lovely monochrome packaging, with the model wearing a pair on the front, along with the brand name, size, colour and model name too.

Flipping over, you will find more info about the pair along with the sizing guide and hosiery care.

These come flat folded, wrapped around plain card. These also have foot and leg shaping to them as well.

 

Getting Them On: so I did my little scrunch and roll from the feet up the legs, taking care not to catch my anklets at the same time. As these have a good amount of elasticity to them, I could stretch out a little.

On The Legs: so I wanted to start off with the shade difference. I wanted to show my skin tone against when they’re on. As you can see (below top right) these are very dark, and we are not talking tan. This is more of a deep bronze colour, which I was unsure about at first. I wasn’t too keen on the colour as it looked a little to dark for my liking, and this is where the flash comes in.

Now I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the images after; I could not believe this pair had such shine to them. I was fully taken back by this, and in such a good way too. They instantly became lighter in colour and looked really nice.

This has got some serious gloss packed into them

The quality is great on this pair; saying that I did manage to snag these. I have no idea how, but it happened and a little hole has formed. I mentioned before they had a nice bit of stretch to them so I got even coverage on the legs without having an ombre effect.

The fit of these are perfect; they fit beautifully on the legs and there is no gapping. I would recommend checking the sizing guide if you’re unsure of your sizing. The feel of them are STUNNING; they are so soft, they are super smooth and your legs just glide right off one another. I love everything about these!

 

 

The Toes & Ankle: another bonus to these is that these have reinforced toes!!! I had plenty of wiggle room in them for my toes to move. There was no pressure applied onto the toes either when they go on.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a beautiful smooth finish.

The Waistband & Gusset: now this is a gorgeous band, and that thickness is just gorgeous I suppose on hot days you wouldn’t want a band like this, but you know what! I absolutely love it. It curves to fit your body well, it sits and holds up the tights well and they do not roll over itself either. I love how well these fit and how comfortable they are on.

The cotton gusset to these sit flush against the skin too 🙂

My Thoughts?

I’m in awe of this pair and I wish I picked up more when I had the chance to. I love the quality even though I managed to snag them! That glossy shine is to die for, and I would happily recommend these!
