Now this pair I am really excited about! Victoria Secrets don’t really make hosiery anymore, and a good friend of mine in the USA had purchased these and sent them to me to review! When I first saw them, I thought they would be a good pair to review. When they arrived, a good pair turned into a great, stunning pair and I could not wait to get my legs into them!
If you can still buy them from private sellers, I would say do it! But now I shall review and pop my thoughts further on down…
Denier: Around 60-80
Materials: 93% Nylon, 7% Spandex
Website: eBay Private Seller
I really wanted to wear this skirt today, so I decided to pair up my navy polka dot cami top and add my patent heels to bring the outfit together. I like wearing blue hosiery, however I like to experiment with looks to create something new each time!
Cami Top: H&M
Getting Them On: this was such a gorgeous roll up the legs. I did my scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets and it was a smooth roll up the legs. I didn’t have to tug them up much either as there was plenty of material.
On The Legs: depending on the lighting, these shade differently I have noticed. When I was lying on my bed nearer to natural daylight, I found these went slightly lighter. I don’t mind this happening, but it was something worth noting as you can tell where it stretches out on the legs.
The quality is beautiful; they don’t rip or snag easily which is a huge plus point. I also really like how they hug the legs well, without any gapping or having an ombre effect either. I’m not a fan of it going from dark to light up the legs, and I found these don’t do that. You have this even coverage around the legs
The fit of these are true to size, and I would try to check out a sizing guide where you can before purchasing. I had no issues with them falling down, feeling too tight or too loose on the legs either.
The feel of them is exactly how they look/ soft, smooth, sensual, velvety, amazing. I have absolutely loved being in them all day, to the point I will be wearing them again soon as I need my legs caressing again! They are so soft, both inside and out and they have a lovely baby soft touch to them (I mean like a baby’s first bear – that ultimate softness) – they were truly incredible to wear and be in.
The colour is just something incredible; I do love me a navy blue from time to time, and I have to say not only does it look amazing, it has a luxury look to it as well.
The Toes & Ankle: I don’t think these have reinforced toes to them, however as they are slightly thicker in denier it will provide somewhat of a reinforcement. I would just make sure that your nails are not sharp or too long, so it doesn’t damage them when you’re in them. I made sure mine were all ok before I got them on, as this is a pair I don’t want to be damaging intentionally!
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes, and there was no pressure added around the toes or feet during the day.
As you can tell, it’s a lovely smooth, fitted finish around the feet and ankles.
The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see we have stretched it out around this area, so it has become a lot sheerer than the rest of the legs. I was working with a slim band here, which stayed put all day without moving or rolling down on itself. I half expected it to as there was no reinforcement underneath, but they were being perfect all day long.
The gusset as you can see, is a cotton patch which is light in colour. This sits flush against the skin.
This is such a beautiful pair and I wish these were still available – as I would be recommending these. I love the quality, I love the feel and that blue is just stunning. It’s a pair that can work all year round if you want it to!
