So Wolford have relaunched the Neon 40 with a few changes, and I am super happy to say that I have a pair to test out in my favourite nude/tan shade – Gobi!
I will be using my previous blogs on this style to do some comparison to the new launch of the Neon 40 Tights, to see whether there is a difference or not.

Gotta get those jumper dresses out now that it’s the season! I wore my rust coloured dress paired with my brown faux leather court shoes to finish the look. You can always add a waist belt if you need something to break it up a little.

From The Website: The renowned Wolford Neon 40 Tights have had an upgrade! This popular shiny tights style by Wolford now features a super soft and smooth waistband with shimmering detail, updated with a stretchy linear elastic material to ensure a perfect fit for all shapes and sizes. The waistband even has Wolford’s signature logo throughout for added detail. Still obtaining all the extraordinary features of the original Neon 40, these 40 denier tights provide a natural radiant look on the legs thanks to their glossy finish. The Wolford Neon 40 tights are an absolute must-have all year round due to their ability to make the skin appear smooth and airbrushed whilst not compromising on strength and durability for wear after wear! 85% polyamide, 15% elastane

Getting Them On: I did my usual scrunch and roll up the legs, taking care going over my anklets. I took my time rolling them up the legs so I don’t randomly snag them. They glided super easy up the legs, and super simple setting them in place.
On The Legs: okay so here it goes. I find with the denier, it seems that these look thinner than the 40s before. I feel that they still give that smooth, luxury finish that they are known for, but it seems to be looking thinner in denier rather than a thicker lustre shine. Speaking of the shine, I feel it isn’t as bold as before; it’s become more of a lustre shine that a hit you in the face gloss that it has.
The quality is still the same as what you would expect from the Neon 40, which I like. I was hoping this wouldn’t be compromised!
The fit of these are perfect; I always like to play with XS or Small, depending on the style. Either way, I know they both fit me so well, and with Small I always have a little bit more stretch in them so I don’t have to worry about stretching them out too much.
The feel of them are amazing; they are soft, they are smooth, they are really lovely to touch, and they certainly don’t irritate the legs either. They are a great pair for sure, and one that I really like!
The Toes & Ankle: I also find the reinforcement on the toes is a lot lighter than what I have worked with before; previously around the toes would be quite dense, and opaque where you can’t see too much of the nail varnish coming through. Now I feel it is definitely lighter and more of the nail colour pokes through.
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, it’s a lovely fitted finish with no wrinkles.
The Waistband & Gusset: so the band is definitely different; it is slightly thicker, has that shimmer to it and is more of s straight cut rather than a scallop finish at the top.
The band itself has a lovely amount of elasticity to it, to the point it hugs really well without you feeling it whilst you move. These sat around the belly button on me, and not once did they roll or shimmy down my waist.
I am pleased that’s for sure! I love that nothing was compromised here, and if anything it’s subtle changes they have made. I was a little sad about the lustre shine than a super gloss shine, but that’s no biggie in my eyes.
