Wolford Energize Velvet 66 Tights

I am dealing with some rough weather for the past few days, which meant layers, jumper dresses and thicker deniers are coming out to play. I am pretty excited to try these out as Wolford darker deniers are pretty awesome, and these are supposed to be good for those on the move too!

These were gifted from my Amazon Wishlist, and all details are below.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: the first thing I notices was how smooth and soft these were when I was scrunching them down ready to troll them up the legs. I took care going over my anklets, and then slowly rolled them up doing a little tug here and there before setting them in place.

On The Legs: I love how black these are – they are do deep in colour, and I absolutely love it. They feel super thick yet make the legs look super slim and toned without even trying.

The quality is spot on, as always with Wolford. I had no sags, no rips or any other damage, and to be honest it would be hard to try and damage these as they are built to last I feel. Put it this way – they are well made!

The fit was true to size, and it fit me perfectly. I felt I had enough material to achieve great leg coverage without having to tug at them all day. If you are in-between sizes, I will say go one size up with these, as they are super fitted and elasticated so they grip to the legs well.

The feel – let me just say I did not want to get out of them. They are so soft and super comfortable to wear. I didn’t feel any compression, or any tightness either which is always a good thing; no-one wants to feel restricted in hosiery. I absolutely loved these.

The Toes & Ankle: I am not too sure if these have reinforced toes, but I feel as these are quite a thick denier, they kind have them. I do like how they have reinforced the toes seams, which you can see at the side of the toes.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, there was no wrinkling to be found as its super fitted around this area. One thing I forgot to mention was that these come with reinforced heels to them, that helps eliminate wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: so the band itself is very slim, with a large reinforcement underneath it. I quite liked it as it didn’t show under my clothing at all. I had plenty of stretch in these, and there was no sign of them rolling or shimmying down the waist either during the day. I really liked them as they were once again comfortable to wear around the waist, and was not restricting in any way.

My Thoughts?

These have become a favourite for winter, as I love how dark and cosy they are to be in. The fit is spot on, the feel is super smooth and overall I really liked being in them.
