The Packaging

Getting Them On: I haven’t tried a pair like this before, so I took my time getting them on this morning. I rolled them up, and made sure the silicone sole detail was stretched enough to cover the bottom of my feet. I then rolled them up and set in place before I shot out the door.

On The Legs: now this is an interesting pair. So far away, they look like this great opaque that gives great leg coverage… but up close it is a different story when it’s stretched out. At the bottom of my legs, they look amazing, thick and covered – but my thighs say different. These images below are of me sitting down, and this is where I can see the fault in them; they have markings all over them, which I cannot seem to get rid of no matter what I try and do.

The quality isn’t as great as I thought it would be, which is a shame as they do look great on the bottom half of my legs. These don’t snag or rip easily, which is a bonus point.

The fit of these are definitely true to size, and fit me like a dream. They give me good leg coverage and don’t wrinkle/gap anywhere either. I do wish I went a size up to see what they would be like, and if I will achieve that darker, opaque look.

The feel of these are lovely and smooth, which means my legs aren’t left feeling itchy or irritated after a day’s wear. I found them to be smooth to the touch, which is what I was aiming for when pairing with a dress like this; I expect it to flow right across my tights.

These do a have a semi shine to them, which I think is lovely when the light catches it, but you wouldn’t expect it when you see some of the images below.

The Toes & Ankle: so I need to go into further detail here after I got them on. I did stretch them out so the sole piece is covering my foot well, however I found it added a lot of pressure onto my toes and around the feet. Its like these were made with a smaller sole part which shouldn’t be stretched out completely – because it sure did hurt my feet. I did find it shrunk down to the size it wanted to be later on, and this is why you can see a slight difference in size.

Around the toes, I did find pressure, but that eased off when the tights sat how they wanted once I started moving around in them.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkling. Even if I did really stretch them out, they would end up rolling back down to where they want to sit.

The silicone sole – is it worth it? To be honest, yes it does stop you slipping around if you are walking on smoother surfaces, however these sit in the part of my foot where it arches up slightly and some of my heel, so I don’t have great slip coverage. So in my opinion, I thought it was pointless.

The Waistband & Gusset: so it mentions control top – there isn’t one at all. There is no control element here, apart from a waistband and an uncomfortable double backseam.

I found the waistband to be great this morning, but that quickly changed when I started to feel it roll down on itself and just squeeze my waistline. It is a good size band, but it easily rolls over, which just makes me think it isn’t worth it as it made me feel super uncomfortable.

There is no gusset in this pair, as it has a double seam instead. I would advise wearing underwear with this pair, but that’s my opinion 🙂

My Thoughts?

These are not a bad pair; I am super glad I got to try them out, despite the negative comments I have made about them. I do like the whole concept, but I feel these could be so much better. They have the potential to be, and I really hope they do produce some great items in the future.
