Getting Them On: these did worry me at first as they were labelled tall, however I worked out this would be my size. I did my scrunch and roll and found that I didn’t need to tug these up the legs. There was plenty of material – to the point these were nearly as tall as my legs so they wouldn’t need stretching up the legs.
I took care getting them over my anklets, so they don’t catch and gently rolled them up and sat them in place.
On The Legs: I really love polka dots, and these made my outfit look super chic and cute. I like how they are sparser rather than close to each other, and that the dots are slightly bigger too. It still looks super chic, but it’s something a little different to your ‘normal’ polka dot pairs.
The quality of these are not bad; I say not bad as they are nice, however I saw some parts across the legs that were a little off. The main part was at the top of the thigh where I saw some ‘ringing’ around the legs, and that was something that I could not get rid of. It shows the rings as a lighter denier – and is super noticeable when you look down on them. I did find them not to be super flush from the toe to the waistband; there was so uneven parts, some ringing around the legs and they didn’t look uniform in my eyes.
The fit of these are great; they are true to size and they were perfect for my length and width too. These don’t have a lot of stretch in them so I would advise going one size up if needs be just so you have extra material rather than really tugging at these. I will say these hugged the legs well, and there was no gapping.
The feel of these were nice and soft; they didn’t irritate the legs and I was fine being in them all day long with no issues. I did manage to snag them up at the end of the day, but that was my fault as I was being careless.
The Toes & Ankle: is unfortunately not reinforced, which means you will need to take care with long nails in these. I made sure mine were smoothed down before I got them on just to make sure I could make them last well during the day.
These allowed my toes to have plenty of wiggle room, and no pressure was added onto the toes during the day either. They were lovely and comfortable to be in.
Around the feet and ankles, you can see a lovely smooth finish with no wrinkling. I was hoping this pair would stay up well during the day, and they sure did!
The Waistband & Gusset: okay so we have a boxer brief here, which I don’t mind but I prefer for it to not be there. Depending on your outfit, it can be quite restricting in terms of wearing something short and this peers through.
I do like how it does give the extra support from the waistband to the top thigh, so when you do sit down and stretch this part out, it won’t be ripping on you.
I felt the band was great to begin with, however I did find it bending over itself mid way through the day. It wasn’t too much of an issue under this outfit, however this is still annoying. I suppose it is expected as this is a slimmer band we are working with.
These also have a gusset to them, which does sit flush against the skin for the whole day too.
Verdict? Not a bad pair I must say, considering I have never heard of them before and they are supposed to be amazing. I do like the polka dot look for sure, however I felt a little let down with the quality and those markings. Apart from that, I think they are a great pair.
