Pewter here we come! I don’t do greys that often, however these I had to dress up for work – they were too stunning not to take them out and about today.

Materials: 84% nylon, 16% elastane
Website: Wolford – Satin de Luxe
I did a simple white and grey pairing; white cami paired with my floral grey skirt. I added simple black court shoes to finish the look.
Cami Top: New Look
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
Soft waistband with Wolford logo
Seam on the back of the leg
A feminine accompaniment for many occasions.
Getting Them On: 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. This is pretty common with the pairs I have done before.
These were fine going over anklets too, as I lifted them above the anklets and then continued to roll.
On The Legs: this is a brilliant colour to work with – gun metal grey comes to mind with this pair. I did a before and after picture using flash so you can see natural light vs flash. I really like the deep grey, I wasn’t too sure to begin with, but it certainly has grown on me. 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 do prefer sticking with a Small in these, as it has just a little more give to them compared to an X-Small. 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: the toes have plenty of room to wiggle and breathe, even though you might feel it’s slightly tight to begin with. This does loosen ever so slightly so it moulds to your feet.
There is no extra material around the toes or feet, and no wrinkles around the ankles either.
You will find that the backseam does dig into the soles slightly to begin with, but this does ease off the more you walk around in them.
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.
Now these are something else! I love this colour – it’s one I haven’t thought of doing before, and I am so glad I have now. I would totally recommend these for sure – this style is one of my favourites!
