My Outfit

I decided to do a night-out outfit with this pair, as I would normally wear them to work but this time I wanted to take them out instead. I paired them up with a black mini dress and paired my ankle strap court shoes. I layered with a long blazer on top, which I left in the car so it won’t be seen in this review.

The Review

The Packaging: I gotta say these came beautifully packaged through my door. As you can see below, they came in a large envelope with a lovely written card and my pair of holdups inside.

The pair itself is kept in plastic packaging, wrapped around card to hold their shape.


Getting Them On: I took my time to roll these up the legs and set them in place. These are quite stretchy, so you shouldn’t have an issue with it being on the smaller side. I took care going over my anklets and rolling up the legs, making sure that I don’t cause any snags or rips before my night has even begun!

On The Legs: can I just say how divine they look?! I wanted to use a mix of natural sunlight by the window, natural day light in the room and flash so you can see the difference!

The quality never fails me; they are always amazing on the legs and I never tend to have a problem. These could snag easily if you don’t take care when you’re in them, so I would advise to watch where you walk!

The feel of them are a little rough, but that’s due to the way it’s stitched with the lurex in the holdups. These won’t itch or irritate your legs once you’re in them (unless you have super sensitive skin) and I found they didn’t with mine! Apart from that, they are quite soft and a great pair to be in all night long.

The fit of them are true to size, and you get an extra bit of stretch in them so you can sit them as low or high as you desire. I normally do mine quite high so I don’t show the band a lot, and I could easily do that without any issues.

Now that shine is just amazing, and perfect for those parties coming up! You could easily pair these up with a work outfit, or like I did and wear them on nights out or upcoming parties. I love the way they just went from this subtle glitter shine to an illuminating shine where it becomes sheer and super shiny!

I gotta say this is a great pair – I have done some before in tights, so I am mega glad I have a great quality pair in holdups!

The Toes & Ankle: now let me say how happy I am here about the fact these have reinforced toes to them! Up close you can see the knit is so much tighter from the toe seam to below the toes. The great thing about these is that you can wear them with open toe shoes or sandals and not have to worry about your toes creating unwanted holes!

Around the toes and feet, there is plenty of wiggle room and there is no pressure added around this area at all. They are a comfortable fit.

The ankles have a lovey fitted finish 🙂



The Bands: I can’t say I had any issues with these bands. They stay up so well with that double silicone band holding them up and they have a great deal of grip to them – to the point no matter how many times you prise them from the legs and put them back, they don’t lose it at all.

I mentioned that I sit mine higher up the thigh rather than in the middle, and the bands accommodate that!

The lace floral design is stunning, and the band is the right thickness to really show these off.




My Thoughts?

One of the best pairs I have in my collection – the quality, the design and the fit is just super. I will certainly be pulling these out again for the events I have coming up towards Christmas!

  3. The holdups are fantastic on your legs, of course they are, as always….but the real magic is that deliciously tantalising glimpse of your skin, just above the thigh bands.
    Pure magic 😍👌
