Now this gorgeous pair was gifted by my amazeballs friend, and I am so excited to try them out. Anything with the words Wolford and Shiny in the same sentence is a must in my eyes!
Materials: 84% Nylon, 16% Elastane
I wore my diamante box jumper tucked into my teal mini skirt and I added my statement heels. I kept my hair up as it was bothering my most of the day and added simple earrings.
From The Website:Brilliantly sensual, Wolford’s glossy, Satin De Luxe Tights are completely opaque with a glorious high shine finish.

The Packaging: okay so I am expecting a proper shiny pair on a thick denier by the looks of things. The model wears them on the front in black, and the back goes into further detail.
When you get in, you will find the COQ along with the hosiery folded over promotional card. These are horizontally folded so you get the subtle foot and leg shaping.
Getting Them On: so it was pretty weird this morning – I realised that these have a backseam to them!
I had to line up from the toes (so the toe seam doesn’t sit flush at the top) and then lead it in a straight line all the way to the waist. I had to redo it a few times I must say as it isn’t a seam that is noticeable in semi-dark lighting.
On The Legs: I gotta say I am loving this. I did not expect this pair to resemble the CdR Uppsala range; this is the thinner and more fitted version of them to be honest and I love it. I can’t say I prefer one over the other as I feel they both have their own qualities about them, but in terms of thickness they sure are different!
The quality is one again amazeballs; no snags or rips or getting it caught anywhere. There is enough stretch for your leg length in these; I found there wasn’t too much considering I have an X-Small pair on (with a Small I would have had that little bit more) but hey ho 🙂
The denier is perfect; I feel you still have that slight bit of sheerness to them but thick enough that you don’t see much skin underneath.
The fit of them are divine; they hug the legs so well and don’t move around at all. The feel of them I cannot describe to you; they are just amazing. They are ultra-silky and super soft and that shine is just incredible! I love the way these look; I just didn’t know what to expect when I got them out the packaging!
These sure did take my by surprise – and I am loving it!
Just to mention that backseam; it sits in place all day long without budging an inch. The only time I found they moved was when I had to roll them down and back up to go to the ladies! Otherwise once they’re in place, there ain’t no budging them!
The Toes & Ankle: so 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 you don’t get that cramped sensation.
There is no extra material around the toes or feet, and no wrinkles around the ankles either.
The Waistband: I can never fault it! It holds up so well, it is super comfy to be in and they certainly don’t dig in after eating so much food! They have this gorgeous shine to them from the toes up, so anything short can be worn with ease.
If you’re into the CdR Uppsala Tights, then these are a must. They are thinner, more fitted and look absolutely amazing!
I love everything about these and would certainly recommend them!
