TVRtyle is here, and I am dressing them up once again to create a super cute and fun retro look. Spring is coming, and I wanna start looking the part. Plus I love a good pair of vintage stockings to try out!

Getting Them On: I got these on like a dream this morning. I did my scrunch and roll (this time without the gloves) and rolled them right up and set them in place with a 6 clasp garter belt. I did have to take care going over my anklets in case they do end up catching – but all good in that area!
On The Legs: I used a mix of flash and natural lighting so you can see the colour change, and how the shine goes tom subtle to lustre.
The colour I really do like on this pair; it gave a lovely subtle honey glow on the legs, which works so well with my skin tone. It’s also perfect to pair up with any colour you like without having to worry if it sets the tone off in the wrong way.
Now the quality was a little better than my previous pairs; I felt they lacked and they snagged so easily. This pair did the same; they snagged in some parts TOO easily which was annoying, but the saving grace is that it blends well so you don’t see it until you look up close.
The fit of these – even though they are a medium, they fit me a little better than they did before. Maybe the legs have grown more over the years, but they didn’t feel as loose as what they used to. As these are 100% nylon, these don’t have any stretch to them, so when sitting down and walking around, these will naturally start to loosen up where it has been stretched out and stay that way, giving that loose effect.
The feel is just he same as the last few pairs; soft, silky and super smooth on the legs. They give such a great glide and are so lovely to be in all day long.
The Toes & Ankle: these are a RHT pair, meaning reinforced heel and toe. These have a great reinforced toe area, which fully covers the toes and surrounding skin in a lighter denier, but they don’t have reinforced heels to them – there is no sign of it at all on the feet.
I had plenty of wiggle room in them for my toes to move freely, and without adding any pressure on them during the day.
Around the feet and ankles, these do wrinkle slightly from time to time due to the nature of the materials. They’re not huge wrinkle sections but something to note if you’re not a fan of them.
The Bands: so the welts are great to clasp onto, and they certainly stay in place during my wear too. I had no issues with them moving, or slipping through my clasps!
I do like these are a darker denier than the legs, which say to be that they are doubled up on the material to give that reinforcement.
With the fit, I feel these are great as they stretch out to your thigh size (depending on where you sit them) and they mould to your shape nicely so you don’t have any skin being pressed on top of the welts.
These are a pair which I really do like, but it’s a shame that the quality is still an issue. Apart from that, I really do like how they fit, how they sit and that gorgeous lustre shine they hide away.
