Now this pair I purchased a while back, and was waiting for better days to bring them out. I love this style (as most of you know by my previous reviews) and I just had to try them out in a white pair!
Size: One Size
Denier: Approx 40
Materials: Nylon & Elastane
Price & Website: No Longer Available
Not gonna lie, I have missed this dress and I wanted to pull it out of the wardrobe to create a fun look. I kept the belt as a simple ribbon instead of my chunky belt to keep it looking feminine.
Getting Them On: I had a nice amount of stretch to work with, so I didn’t have to worry about tugging when rolling up the legs.
I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over the anklets and then rolled them up with ease. They glided on so smoothly!
On The Legs: I gotta start off with the design! Yes I got a knock off version of the Gucci tights – only because I wanted to see if these were good enough and then I might get the real thing! I tried a similar pair in black, and loved them so I had to get he white to test. It certainly has not let me down!!
The quality is pretty good. I expected cheap and cheerful, but these were not bad at all. I didn’t have any issues with snags or rips, and they didn’t cause me any issues – so I was pleasantly surprised.
The fit is one size, which has plenty of stretch in them to give good leg coverage. I will say these will not fit all sizes, so just be mindful. I like the fact these don’t gap under the knees or around the ankles, otherwise there will be a frown in place of a smile.
The feel of these are not bad either; I did find they were a little rough to start off with, but that eased and didn’t irritate as much the longer I spent in them. Apart from that, they were a decent pair!
The Toes & Ankle: so these come with mini reinforced toes. This means they just about cover my toenails on both sides. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and there was no pressure added either during my wear.
Around the feet and ankles, there was no wrinkling!
The Waistband & Gusset: so the great thing about this pair is that you have the design going from the toes to the waistband – which means anything short can be worn with ease. The only downside I feel is how thin the waistband actually is; it digs in slightly and isn’t comfortable on the waist.
These also don’t have a cotton gusset – or any gusset for that matter to them. So I would advise wearing underwear with these, unless you choose to be brave.
I love these, and think they look amazing. They are a great alternative pair to the actual Gucci tights. They fit really well, and look really good. The only downside was the reinforced toes were not big enough and the waistband isn’t that comfortable to wear.
