Treadwell 100% Nylon Stockings

All these new brands making their way onto the blog, and I have no background information for some of them. It’s a shame as I’m sure they have some awesome background story to them.

If anyone happens to know some information about the brand, then please do let me know.

Anyways so this pair was also gifted in my box of goodies, without the original packaging.

My Outfit

I thought I would create a simple smart casual look. I hardly wear crop tops, but I thought this made a pretty good outfit. I paired up my top with my split maxi skirt and add some stockings to spice it up.

The Review

The Packaging: so this is how they came. I thought it was Triumph at first until I checked the stamp on the stockings which mentioned Treadwell.

These came folded neatly in the tissue and have foot/leg shaping to them. It mentions irregulars on the the welt, and you will see why a little later down the blog.

 

On The Legs: I wanted to use a mix of flash and natural lighting so you can see what they are like on. I also did an image where I have a bare right leg so you can see the shading difference. You will see they have a subtle shine to them without looking too bright, which I think really sets them off nicely.

The quality of these are pretty nice, and I love how I managed to keep these snag-free all day! These were the perfect size for my leg length and width too, which also means less wrinkling.

The colour I have to say is pretty nice; it’s this lovey subtle tan colour which works wonders with my legs. There isn’t a huge difference in shade, which makes it more ‘natural’ looking.

The fit of these is true to size, and they worked well with my legs as I mentioned before. I wasn’t too sure at first, but when I got them on, I knew these will sit where I want them to. The feel of them are amazing; they are super silky and really soft to touch. It’s the type your legs glide off one another – and you smile as they do so!

 

 

The Toes & Ankle: these come with capped toe reinforcements, which is smaller at the top of the foot and larger underneath. I thought it would be the other way around, but maybe not. I had plenty of wiggle room in these for my toes and there was no pressure added at any point. This will only occur if you are tugging up your stockings too much.

Around the feet and ankles, it’s a lovely fitted smooth finish.

The Bands: now this is where the ‘irregular’ part comes into play. So the print on the welts are actually misplaced; they had them printed so one leg faces out and the other faces inwards – check out the pics to see what I mean below. I also noticed that the print does not sit at the side of the thigh, but more towards the back and that isn’t something you can change! The print has also faded and isn’t that bold enough to see unless you are up close.

Apart from that, the welts sit lovely on the thighs and stretch out if needed for a comfort fit. I loved being in these all day, as they were so easy and comfortable to be in. I love the thicker denier contrast, which matches the toes and and the double design to them as well. One of my favourite things to look at for sure!

My Thoughts?

Overall they are a great pair, but the irregular part of it was a little annoying. It’s not like anyone else will be seeing it, but it makes all the difference when you wear them on a daily basis. Apart from that, I love the colour and the fit is superb!
