SockShop 15D Gloss Tights

So this the 2nd time I have ever done a pair from the SockShop (or maybe 3rd but the review was on Instagram years ago). Either way, this is a brand that I rarely get my hands on. They are more of a supplier, but they do have some pieces of their own which they do sell – and in all honesty it’s ok. Nothing too great to brag about, so I was intrigued when I came across this pair thinking they might be able to change my mind!

The Review

The Packaging: is pretty simple I gotta say. There isn’t much to it really; the model wears a pair on the front, and the back goes into a little detail about them (to be fair which I am glad about).

When you get in, you will find 2 pairs wrapped around individual card pieces.


Getting Them On: so let me say I am loving this colour; it’s already given me a subtle tan with an oily effect on the legs! They were fine going over anklets and up the legs; these felt slightly thick so I could afford to be a little rough with them at times.



On The Legs: I used a mix of flash and natural lighting to show you what I am working with, and all I can say is:

I absolutely love them!

The denier being 15 gives you a thinner feel on the legs, but maximum coverage. These actually look quite thick due to the glossy shine, and I love that about them. These are already perfect for summer in my eyes!

The quality is amazing; I have had no issues at all being in these. They have a nice amount of stretch in them to hug the legs real nice, no signs of any snags or runs either and the durability is pretty amazing. I suppose you have to thank the reinforced body part of this that they offer!

The fit of them are amazing; they are true to size and you have enough room in them as well if you’re in-between sizes as well. The feel of them I cannot tell you how super soft they feel! They’re a lovely smooth silky finish, and that added glossy they have just makes it 1000000x better!


The Toes & Ankle: now here you can see the reinforced toe as the stitching and colour changes slightly to become darker. You could probably still get away with wearing open toe sandals with these (certainly peep toes)!

The toes have plenty of wiggle room as well, and space to breathe so they don’t feet too fitted around this area.

Around the ankle it’s such a smooth fitted finish.


The Waistband: here we are working with a boxer brief, so you get it becoming way way darker from top thigh to the waistband.

The band itself is really comfortable but does dig in slightly during the day, so the elastic in this is pretty tight. I didn’t manage to stretch them out like I normally do during the day, so that could have played a part (I like to pull them down and up and stretch out the band to see how well the elasticity holds).

Otherwise this whole area will be reinforced, which is great if you’re a worrier that you might end up catching your tights and creating holes in this section.



My Thoughts?

I am so glad I got this pair to try out again; I really do love them and it’s a great summer essential to add a tan without using products! I love the colour, I love the fit, and that gloss is just stunning!

A pair definitely worthwhile getting!
