Wolford Loop Tights

Bring on the bold prints as the weather gets colder and darker. I love bringing these type of prints out to make a statement this time of year, as it beats a simple black pair with a dark outfit in my eyes. I don’t mind it from time to time, but today I wanted to work with colours!

This pair was kindly gifted from my Amazon Wishlist, and all details are stated below.

The Review

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I did my best to line these up as best as I can before setting them in place. Yes I am one of those people who looks at symmetry and lines when people wear tights like these – it matters!

I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets before setting them in place. I didn’t have to tug them up too much as there was a nice amount of material to work with.

On The Legs: can I just say how much I love this loop/chain design! It’s one that works so well and isn’t too out there either. I thought it might be too much when I first saw it, but as soon as I put the outfit together I absolutely loved it. From afar, it looks like a knit print but up close is where you see it look spectacular.

The quality is just great as always with Wolford, and it certainly did not lack this time around. They hardly snagged (I managed to get one as I took them off) and there was no other damage to them. These have been wonderful to be in. The only thing I will mention is that the shorts didn’t brush past with ease; they kinda stuck to the tights now and again as there is no smooth coating on them.

The fit has been spot on, and I had enough material to achieve even leg coverage too. Not at any point does it look tighter or wider on the legs, which I am super pleased with – wearing shorts I have nothing to hide behind!

The feel of them are soft, but not as smooth as you think they look. These have a material-feel to them, which means clothing doesn’t brush past the legs easily unless it’s silky smooth. I found them so easy to be in during the day too; not irritation to the legs, no annoying little threads etc. They have been great!

The Toes & Ankle: around the toes we have the pattern working all the way down to the seams, which I love. This means you can work them with any footwear you like, without having to worry about a reinforced toe that is plain.

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, I had a smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: and here comes the waistband. So as you can see below, the loop pattern works right to the top, so any short clothing can be worn without a reinforced boxer brief ruining the look. The band itself is super comfortable, plenty of elasticity to it and sits so well on the waist. I had no issues with this at all during my wear today!

My Thoughts?

Yep! I am all for this pair! I love the way they look, the quality was amazing and overall they have abeen a lovely pair to work with today. One of my favourites for this time of year, and one that I will happily recommend!
