Now this brand here is a new one to the blog! I haven’t heard of them before, but came across them on Amazon so a lovely follower bought them for a review.
I can confirm that there are a small amount of stockists who do this brand, so I would just pop their brand into a search engine and browse away 🙂

I miss wearing this jumper dress, so I rocked it out with my suede court shoes to give it a more smart look. You can always switch to white pumps to make it casual if you prefer 🙂

The Packaging: so as you can see from the images below that these do not have much to it. They are pretty basic, with a generic piece of card which I am sure is used for all of the models in this collection.
When you get in, you will find these flat folded (no card was found in-between the legs) and they’re pretty much ready to get on 🙂
On The Legs: so I took my time getting these on as they felt quite rough and grainy, which meant these can snag pretty easily if you don’t take care. I managed to be super careful rolling these on the legs and taking care everywhere I went today!
The denier being 15-20 is great for a lovely bit of leg coverage – this is always my go to when I don’t want to go super thin. Plus you always tend to get a lovely sheen on the legs in this denier as well.
The quality of these were surprisingly great. They treated me so well throughout the day, I ended up with no snags or rips on the legs, and they were a dream to be in! I have to add here that these do have a nice bit of stretch to them (but not much) so this does help when you’re on the move a lot too!
The fit of these are true to size; as I mentioned above, there was a nice amount of stretch in mine to sit them quite high on the legs and still have a flush finish on the legs. I would recommend you check out their sizing guide before you purchase just in case you in-between sizing, otherwise these were a great fit!
The feel of them weren’t as grainy-like on the legs once I had got them on. That had smoothed out and now I have this semi-matte pair with a semi-soft finish on the legs.
On a side note, one thing you might notice is that these have rims going horizontally up the leg so it doesn’t look like a super smooth finish in some parts. You might be able to see it better in the next section of the blog.
The Toes & Ankle: now this is where I had an issue – the toes with A RIP IN THEM! I have no idea how as my nails aren’t as long as I normally keep them, but somehow they still managed to rip and create a lovely little ladder from the seam down my big toe!
Apart from that, I had no other issues around this area. The toes had plenty of wiggle room and could breathe throughout the day (extra because of that rip) and they didn’t feel tight in any area either. There is no extra material hanging around either which is great!
Around the ankles, you can see a nice fitted finish with horizontal lines working their way up the legs. I have no idea why that is, but something to note!
The Bands: now the bands I tried to tug up as high as I could on the legs, but this is where they ended up sitting, so the thinner denier part with that rim is showing just under my jumper dress, which sucks a bit but hey!
Otherwise the bands are really good; they adjust to your thigh sizing and sit comfortably all day long. If you do stretch them out, just be mindful that they won’t return to their previous shape so you will see them look slightly baggy afterwards.
My metal clasps also gripped on super well, which was the one thing I was worrying about considering I was out all day! I do feel that the normal plastic clasps can also work on these!
I think these are great considering these are super cheap to pick up from Amazon! The quality is decent as long as you don’t have long nails or anything, and the fit is great too! A good cheap pair if you don’t want to spend a lot!
