Veneziana Ar Fiona Hold Ups

Back into thicker denier we go … The weather in the UK is so weird at the moment; it has some real cold days and then beautiful sunshine with a hint of heat other days … I suppose this works in my favour so I can cheekily pull out those sheers!

So these gorgeous babes were purchased as a gift from my Amazon Wishlist so I had to get these on ASAP!

My Outfit

I have a thing for doing this black top and bottom with statement skirts at the moment. I have no idea why but hey … It works!

I wore my bodysuit with my statement knitted skirt and added my grey chunky heels. I did switch these in the end to black for my meetings, but kept it all funky for work with the grey.

Matte opaque hold ups. 60 Denier, Silicone lace top
Style: Hold Ups


The Packaging: the front shows the model wearing the thicker denier holdups on the front along with the size, colour and denier. The back goes into little further detail about the hosiery:

“Opaque microfibre hold ups with elastane, matt, siliconed lace top”

Basically – straight to the point about them.

Once you get in, these are flat folded around card to keep them in shape. I gotta say prising the bands away from each other was tough going – they actually needed tugging; these are a super strong bond!


On The Legs: I love the way they look. From far they look so smooth and velvety-like. I love how they have even coverage from the toes to the top; something which I don’t come across regularly as I always have that ombre effect going on (which I quite like!)

The denier is quite thick, so being 60, you get this semi-opaque look rather than a full block or really sheer.

The quality of these are superb; no snags, no run, no rips and certainly no weird markings on the legs. I hate it when that happens as it’s so noticeable and I just end up pointing it out to everyone! (I don’t know why I do this!)

The fit and feel of them are spot on; the fit is just great and really hugs the legs. The feel of them are super soft and smooth; basically how they look below is nothing compared to stroking them on the legs (this means it’s amazeballs!)


The Toes & Ankle: so as you can see the toes don’t have any reinforcement strips going across it, but what I did notice is that it is quite thick here where it actually cover 80% of my nail colour!

These also have enough wiggle room and toes can breathe easy.

Around the ankles, these sit flush and have a lovely smooth finish too. I didn’t come across any wrinkling here (which is great!)


The Band: I got a good band here; these held onto me like glue today regardless how many times I took them off. I thought they were amazeballs as they have a firm grip on the legs the whole days without any of that being lost.

I sit mine real high compared to others who do mid-thigh, and I didn’t encounter any issues like I tugged too much or it stretched more than it needed to etc.



My Thoughts?

I think these are so worth it; the denier is perfect for this winter weather and also allows you to have that slight sheerness to them to match up with outfits perfectly.

The fit and quality is great; they have treated me so well today and I am so glad I got to review them! Veneziana is one brand which is underrated I gotta say!

  2. Beautiful stay ups not that I wear them only way and am going for a different look. That would be glossy hold ups over glossy tights like royal blue or white glossy hold ups over glossy tights. Seen them few times online and looked fashionable , stylish not to mentioned very hot looking.
