This pair is taking me forever to write the review – mind-block has hit me hard, and honestly I don’t know why. I have worn this pair around 3 times now (this being the 3rd time) – so I’m clueless as to why mind-block is the real deal right now!
Materials: 88% Polyamide, 11% Elastane, 1% Cotton
Re-creating one of my favourite looks today, pairing a jumper dress with my glitter boots to create a casual look with this animal pair. I haven’t done this for some time!
Jumper: Gifted off Amazon
Boots: Dr Martens
From The Website: Animal has always been one of, if not the, symbol of luxury. Partly because of the softness of genuine fur and partly because of its controversial and questioned place in clothing. But get a good designer, give him or her good materials and you can have it all without a single real hair on your clothing. Many brands do animal prints, but none have ever made anything luxurious enough to feel real. They just look like it. Now, Sentelegri have created Panther with their usual magnificent materials and attention to detail. The result is something that’s as soft as the real thing but perfectly ethical. A stunning achievement that proves you don’t have to pick and choose. Everything you want can be yours.

Getting Them On: I had no issue getting these beauties on this time round. When I first got them on, I had to tug at them a little; these are more polyamide than elastane, so once they have stretched out, they kinda stay that shape so it’s easier to get them on.
These were fine going over my anklets as well!
On The Legs: after 3 wears, I am super impressed with how pristine they are still looking. I didn’t hold back with these either times because I wanted to see how well they would last, and the proof is below! They have been great; no snags and no damage! The only thing I picked up each time was this little part where it looked a lot lighter and some patches where it looked darker than the rest of the leg.
The pattern is something I really love; every so often you’ll see me in an animal print pair because I love how playful they can be, and styled in so many ways too!
The fit of these are true to size, however if you have chunkier thighs, I would advise going one size up. I did feel I could have sized up just so they don’t feel too snug on me and I have room for me to move without worrying about them ripping. They were fine, but I personally didn’t feel that comfortable in them.
The feel of them are smooth on the skin, and they don’t irritate. I was worried that with the amount of polyamide they have, it would be quite rough but they were fine to wear in the end.
The Toes & Ankle: these don’t come with reinforced toes, which sucks but ever mind. These have plenty of wiggle room to them, and no pressure was added during my wears either.
I had a smooth fitted finish on the feet, and around the ankles too.
The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see below, these have a design to waist pattern, so you can bring out those short items of clothing with no issues.
I had plenty of elasticity in the waistband, so they hugged my waist well, and these didn’t roll or shimmy down at any stage either.
These come with a cotton gusset to them, which stays in place and you have the option to wear underwear or go commando.
These have been a great pair to try out, and one that has served me really well (3 times over!!). I love the print, I love the way they have been made and lasted and they have been amazing to review.
