I know it has been a while since I have done a blog. I have had a lot on recently, which meant that the blogs were affected – however I am now hoping blogs will be posted as before so you don’t miss out on my content!
Now this pair was sent by The Tight Spot, and let me tell you how happy I am. I saw this pair when they were released, hoping to review them so you all get to see how incredible they are! Now enough of me giving it away … Scroll down!
Materials: 85% Polyamide 15% Elastane

As the weather is still a little warm, I had to dress up and make the most of it. I paired my tea dress with my pom pom lace up sandals to create a super feminine look.

Getting Them On: I just had to do a contrast picture, so you can see this incredible piece of hosiery I am working with today. I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets (so they don’t catch) and rolling them slowly up the leg. They are so smooth inside that you can just glide them right up!
The left image shows it in natural daylight, and the right image will show when the flash hits.
On The Legs: I am in love! Can I just leave it as that? …
The denier on these are incredible. They are 20, however look much thicker due to the gloss. I like how they also smooth out the legs, giving it a flawless finish and hiding any blemishes. I always compare my knees here as they aren’t the greatest looking parts of my body – and right now they look amazing!
The quality of this pair is just stunning. I love Trasparenze for this – you can never go wrong with this brand. They are durable for sure, and they hardly snag. I managed to have a few near misses today, and they are still going strong. As long as you take care, they will take care of you back.
The fit of this pair is true to size. I felt like the sizing was perfect for my leg length and height. If you are in-between sizing, I would recommend going one size up so you have that extra bit of stretch. They fit around the legs really well, and there is no gapping around the knees or ankles either.
The feel is just sublime! They are so silky soft, and REALLY smooth… And yes your legs do glide off one another too. They are such a beautiful pair to be in. These don’t irritate the skin at all, which is another plus point.
Now – when the flash hits it, these transform into something special. They have this gorgeous lustre shine to them, which you wouldn’t really expect. This goes to show you can wear these all day and night – and it will just transform your look.
The Toes & Ankle: so here is where it gets interesting. These come with reinforced toes to them, however they are a lighter denier but they look darker! I know, sounds confusing right? When you feel it, it feels thinner than the rest of the material, but the shade is darker. I mean I don’t mind it as it worked with my sandals today, but it is worth mentioning as I haven’t come across this before.
Around the toes, there was plenty of room for my toes to move freely and there was no pressure added either.
The same can be said for the feet and ankles; I had a lovely fit around this area and there was no wrinkling to be seen.
The Waistband & Gusset: so we have the reinforced toes matching the reinforcement under the waistband. I quite like the way they have done this – purely because it reminds me of stockings that match the welt with the reinforced toes.
The waistband itself is really nice; it has plenty of stretch to it, and it sits nicely on the waist. This is a lovely, thick waistband (slightly thicker than the standard you get) that hugs the waist, so you don’t end up feeling it during the day.
I like that it has reinforcement under it, even if it is a little wonky looking. This helps if you accidently get your nails caught under the bands when pulling them up (yes this has happened to me before)
I really love this pair, and it is one that can be worn all year round. I loved the fit, and the denier is just perfect to pack all that lustre shine. I would happily recommend this pair for sure based on the quality and look!
