Now this is where the real change begins; I am limiting down some photos for this month as a test trial. A lot of you know about the changes that are taking place and the reasons why, and I wanted to provide more specific images rather than a bunch I normally would do.
Anyways I am back in Treadwell stockings, as I had some extra pairs to try out from a bunch that were gifted to me a while back.
If you missed my previous review on Treadwell stockings, hit the link below to give it a read (opens in a new tab):
Size: Around 9.5
Materials: 100% Nylon
Price & Website: Unknown
I wanted to create a smart causal look but making it a little playful; I teamed up a shirt with my skater skirt, and added polka dot lace up heels. I kept jewellery to a minimum, and added my backpack to give it a fun feel!
Shirt: New Look
On The Legs: after slipping them on with care, I have to say I was impressed with the way they looked. I thought the colour of the stockings matched my skin tone perfectly; it gave it shine, a little colour and made my legs look amazing. It is super subtle, and it worked so well with my outfit.
The quality of the stockings are amazing; they did not snag easily (I took extra care around them) and they can be durable as long as you treat them well. These do not have any stretch to them as they are fully nylon, so they don’t sit as high as I would like them to.
The fit of these are perfect; there was very little wrinkling around the ankles and knees, and they were amazeballs. It doesn’t even look like I’m wearing a pair!
The feel of these were lovely; they were silky, they were super soft, they were lovely to touch and they certainly don’t irritate the legs either.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, which are a shade darker than the rest of the legs. These capped my toenails only, which I thought was a little weird. Normally they would cover the toes fully, but with this pair it was just the toenails. Maybe this is one of the reasons why they are known as irregulars.
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move and not feel cramped, and it was a lovely finish on the foot and around the ankles. It literally does not look like I’m wearing a pair!
The Bands: I have to say are lovely; they have a double welt and then a blue trim to finish it off. This is supposed to match the print, however the print is located in the inner leg on each pair instead of the outer thigh.
My clasps gripped on well to the bands, and stayed put until I took them off. I really do like the reinforcement under the band itself; it adds that little more to the look.
The bands did stretch out slightly, and did not return back to its normal shape once stretched. I did like that these sat quite high up the thighs, however it was unfortunate it was a few inches lower than I liked it to be!
I gotta say I do like this pair, even if they are irregulars. I loved the way they looked on the legs, the colour was spot on for me and the quality was great. I was a little baffled with the thin reinforced toes, but that didn’t bother me much.
