Wolford Naked 8 Den Tights

Okay so I know this isn’t the weather for dressing up like so, and I know I need to be adding some layers to this outfit for it to be ‘winter appropriate’, however I am totally feeling this blue vibe paired with amazing tan tights!

Now this pair was released a while ago from Wolford, and I gotta say they are something unique! They are a super fine denier, making it look like a male-up finish on the legs, blending in with the skin tone to create a barely there look! Okay I won’t give anymore away, so have fun scrolling!

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I had to be super careful getting these on the legs today, especially as I didn’t have my hosiery gloves on me. I took my time to scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets.

On The Legs: can you believe there is no actual elastane in these tights, but they have special yarns to give you elastane!? How mental does that sound – but I am here FOR IT!

Now I did some comparison photos; showing on leg with the tights on and one without. If you look at my toes, that will be the giveaway to show you which leg has the pair on them! I love how ultra sheer these are, to the point it practically looks like you’re not wearing any!

The quality of these are amazing; they fit the legs very well and as long as you treat these right, these can last you. I will say these can be very easy to snag as the denier is so low, so please do take care in them. I made sure nothing touched me all day long so I could make them last as long as I can!

The fit of these are true to size. I will say if you are unsure of your size, please check the guide and don’t be afraid to go one size up. The last thing you want is to tug these up the legs and end up ripping them, so I would advise one size up if you can!

The feel of them are super smooth and so soft on the legs. I thought they wouldn’t feel that great, however they have been amazing. There is no irritation from them, and you can easily use these as a base layer if you wish. I thought they were incredible!

Before I forget, I did add flash onto some images so you can see the slight difference; they have a slight shine to them once they’re on the legs. I do love that little shimmer they have to them; these are certainly a pair that will work in Summer!

The Toes & Ankle: these don’t have reinforced toes, which is a shame as the denier is super thin! However, the plus side is that you can easily wear open toe shoes and sandals with them if you wish! I wore closed toe shoes, however these would look amazing with some sandals!

I had plenty of wiggle room around my toes for them to breathe and move, and it is a smooth fitted finish around the feet and ankles.

The Waistband & Gusset: the band on this pair is super thin and there is no reinforcement supporting it either. I will say you need to be super careful with nails if you’re pulling these up and down during the day. It will be easy to catch and rip these.

The band sits around my belly button, and it does not move once in place. The band is super comfortable to wear and it does not roll or shimmy its way down either, which is always great!

The gusset is a small palm sized piece, which sits flush against the skin.

My Thoughts?

One of the best barely there pairs I have! These are perfect if you are after a bare-legged look, especially one that works with your skin tone. I love how amazing they looked on the legs, and the quality I can barely fault here! I would certainly recommend!
