The Review

From The Website: These are a new style by Wolford and not just for summer as we find that nets are popular all year round. These are a larger netwith a smaller net at the foot so your toese don;t pole through which can be very annoying and uncomfortable. The seamless panty section should be invisible under clothing. To finish, there is a sewn-on waistband complete with Wolford Logo.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I have to say these were a great pair to get on the legs. They were soft, they were easy to scrunch and roll on without getting my fingers caught; the net is thick enough to get on with ease. I had no issues putting these on over my anklets either, and they didn’t really move out of place either.

On The Legs: well don’t these look a treat?! I actually love these paired with my yellow court shoes, as they just pop so well against the leather skirt. I love the thickness and the boldness to them, which makes them a great statement pair.

The quality – I mean I say the same thing each time I review Wolford pairs… I can’t fault. I even had a few near misses when my nails did catch on, but not once did it cause a tear or a rip in my tights. I am impressed!

The fit of these are true to size. I like that these have me great coverage and stretch for an X-Small fit, and I can only imagine what a size Small could give me. I would advise going one size up if you’re unsure but I like the fact I had enough stretch for my leg length. I will say I did find gapping under the knee when my legs were bent, but when straight, there was no issue.

The feel of these are a soft, smooth net that does not irritate. You would expect it but it actually doesn’t. I really liked being in this pair.

The Toes & Ankle: the toes come with a smaller net, which acts like a semi-reinforcement. I don’t mind if they are there or not, as it depends on the footwear you choose to pair them with. I prefer no smaller net when I am exposing my toes so I have a flush look.

I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move, and no pressure was added during the day either.

Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth finish with n wrinkling or gapping.

The Waistband & Gusset: so this band is perfect to show off – I have seen many do this under jeans or leggings when it was a major trend. I like the fact the band is super comfortable to the point you don’t feel it on the waist. It didn’t squeeze me at any point as it has plenty of elasticity, it didn’t roll down and it certainly stayed in place until I chose to move it.

There is no gusset to this pair, so it’s completely net from toe to waistband. I would advise wearing underwear with this pair, however it’s optional!

My Thoughts?

Yep I am recommending these. They are a great net pair!
