Wolford Satin De Luxe Tights (Lion)

I am back in the Sain De Luxe range, and I am excited to be trying out a new colour too! This seems to be like a deep golden tan shade, and I am here for it!

The Review

From The Website: Elegant character: The secret of these tights lies in their satin sheen and legendary back seam that highlights the back of the leg. Opaque material that turns heads.

Ready-to-wear tights made from highly elastic, shimmering fabric

Seam on the back of the leg
A feminine accompaniment for many occasions.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: instantly you can see how these are going to transform my legs into this shiny masterpiece. So as the backseam doesn’t line up with the centre of your foot, I had to start the seam at my big toe, and then work it into the centre and roll up the legs from there.

These were fine going over anklets too, as I lifted them above the anklets and then continued to roll.

On The Legs: this is some serious shine I am working with today. The colour really helps sets it off too! I did a before and after picture using flash so you can see natural light vs flash. I think the colour is quite nice; bold for sure and one that can be paired up nicely with some statement clothing. I like this has thick coverage, but is still quite thin so it still lets your leg shape come through.

The quality is once again amazing. I didn’t snag these once during the day, nor did I damage them any other way which I am so happy about as I totally wanna keep these as pristine as possible! I feel if you did end up snagging them, it would show for sure.

The fit was great; I tried a X-Small in my last review, and that just about fit well. Wearing a Small gave me that little extra material and stretch so it keeps it looking opaque all over. I had no gapping occur either, which is always a bonus.

The feel of them are SMOOTH and ULTRA SOFT! I am loving this pair, as my legs have felt caressed all day long with no issues. They are both soft inside and out, and nothing about these irritate the skin as well.

The Toes & Ankle: so you’ll see here where the backseam wobbles before it heads into a straight seam; I had to angle it so it doesn’t dig into my foot too. I had plenty of room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during the day.

I also had a lovely smooth finish around the feet and ankles.

The Waistband & Gusset: is a good waistband I am working with. The shine works right to the top, where it sits under a comfy waistband. This sits just under my belly button, and stays in place unless I choose to move it. There is plenty of stretch in the band, so it hugs really well under clothing.

My Thoughts?

Another great pair, and the colour is just beautiful. I love this style as it is, so getting to try it in different colours really does make me happy. I love the fit this time round, the feel is just spot on and I love the quality as usual.
