Wolford Pure 50 Tights

Now the heat has died down a little, I can finally slip into a thicker denier pair to review. I’ve been wanting to get these on for some time now…

This pair was kindly gifted off my Amazon Wishlist a while back, so I am still hoping they have them in stock!

The Review

From The Website: A classic Wolford innovation: these opaque tights are a real masterpiece in terms of their material and functionality. Thanks to special technology, the seams of the panty section are smoothly glued together, so that they are invisible even underneath tight clothing. Additionally, the material composition not only has an exceptionally smooth matt look, but also feels incredibly soft on the skin. Another plus is the extra wide and soft comfort waistband that ensures a completely comfortable fit at any time. The Pure 50 tights are the perfect companion for all of Wolford’s skirts and dresses.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I gotta say these are so divine! They are so soft, and I loved rolling these up my legs. I did my scrunch and roll from toe to ankle, before I switched to rolling them up. I did have to smooth them down at the sides as you could see where it had stretched a little.

On The Legs: can I just mention how soft and smooth they look on the legs? How you see it is exactly how they are. I did have to pinch them up a little as I found there were darker patches around the legs that I needed to even out. Apart from that, I love how these look and that lovely semi-opaqueness just looks so enticing with an all black outfit!

The quality is spot on, as always! I had no issues with snags or damages during my wear – although I was super careful. Plus it’s my favourite thing about Wolford pairs 🙂

The fit of these were perfect, and I had extra stretch to them as I went a size up. If I was X-Small, these would be slightly sheerer on me and I believe it might have even coverage compared to this pair. I did find even after smoothing it all out and trying to make it even, I still found bits darker than the rest of the leg.

The feel is so gorgeous; they are smooth, they are soft and they caress the legs beautifully. I had no issues with irritation during my wear, and they worked so well with this dress and heels too.

The Toes & Ankle: honestly I am not too sure if these are reinforced, and I couldn’t really see any reinforcement on them either. I would advise being super careful with your nails in them; I made sure mine were smoothed down before getting them on just to make sure that I don’t damage these, especially as I had a peep toe pair of heels on today.

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

Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth fitted finish.

The Waistband & Gusset: the band on these are amazing; once again they never let me down. They hug my waist really well, and don’t slip down at all. They also stayed up like this all day without rolling over itself too, which made me smile as wearing a bodycon dress you would have seen it peek through.

My Thoughts?

A beautiful pair has been added to my collection, and I am over the moon. I love the feel of these beauties, and how great they look on the legs too!
