The Review

From The Website: No compromise when it comes to style and comfort.
The net is reminiscent of snakeskin while the broad sewn-on waistband guarantees maximum comfort.

The Packaging: these came as you see them below. The front shows the model wearing them in the right bottom corner and the back goes into a little more detail about them. When you get in, you will find the COQ on one side, and the tights folded around card on the other.

These do have subtle leg and foot shaping to them, but you won’t be able to tell at first.

 

Getting Them On: I took my time to scrunch and roll them up, taking care going over my anklets. I didn’t want to end up catching it at any point.

I rolled them gently up the legs and then set them in place. This is a pair you don’t need to be so careful about symmetry with; just go with the flow of them.

On The Legs: let me start off by talking about the design. I love this whole snake effect to them, which works the front, sides and back. It’s so interesting and looks pretty techno-like, which gives it that statement look.

The quality of them you can never grumble with. Wolford is amazing like that; they fit me so well, there was plenty of elasticity for my size and there was no snagging or ripping issues either. I do like how even though they are nets, they give a 20 denier appearance on the legs. I thought they would come out looking darker, but in actual fact they don’t whatsoever.

The fit of them are true to size, and I would recommend checking out the guide if you’re unsure. I can say I fit in XS-Medium without any issues so just know there is enough stretch in them.

The feel of them are soft and really lovely to touch. Now as these are a small net pair, these aren’t rough in any way, no matter how much you stretch them out. They are so soft to touch and don’t irritate the skin either.

 

The Toes & Ankle: well these can also work with opened toes shoes as well! The design starts right from the toe seam and there is no visible reinforcement either.

There is plenty of wiggle room for the toes to move about, and no extra material or pressure is added either so they’re a lovely comfortable fit.

Around the feet and ankles, as you can see there is no sign of any wrinkles. It’s a lovely smooth finish around here.

The Waistband: let me mention that this band is brilliant. Not only does it hug your waist so well and is really soft against the skin, but you can also cut it down to however short you like. That is why it looks the way it does – you have the chance to customise your own pair to suit and fit your waist!

This hugs really well and hols the tights up all day without any issues whatsoever. The band itself is pretty thick and then works into the pattern from there down to the toes, so you are able to wear short clothing.

My Thoughts?

I love this pair and the way they look. They have a feminine edgy look to them and I think it works brilliantly if you want to create a statement piece without trying too hard. I loved the fit, the feel and the overall quality about them. The band was the best thing out of it all; the fact you can customise it to your liking is certainly a winner!
