You know me, and how much I love a good bold pattern? Well today I have a gorgeous navy blue, thicker denier, cut out pair that I am so psyched to review. These are right up my street, and the best way to dress them is to let the legs be the centrepiece!
Denier: Around 50
Materials: 83% Polyamide & 17% Elastane

Keeping it supr simple and letting the legs do the work for me today – I paired up my satin tunic paired with matching court shoes to give it a clean, crisp finish.

Getting Them On: I did my usual scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets. I slowly rolled these up the legs, and then had to tug slightly around the thighs before setting in place. I did have to take care with my anklets as I felt it did catch at times, but once I set them in place, they didn’t budge at all.
On The Legs: well well well. These ae an absolute beauty. I love that design, which really reminds me of the Wolford Micro Fish Scale Tights that I did a while back, and loved. They have that lovely scaley design with micro netting in-between it all. Honestly they are such a statement piece, and a great design that you can wear all year round.
The quality of these are so nice. These are pretty hard to damage, and yes I have tried today. I wanted to tug and pull at them to see if they do rip easily, but to my surprise they hold their own well.
The fit of these are great; I went for Small instead of XS, which gave me some extra material for even coverage and a deeper pattern. If I went XS, these would be a little more stretched out on my legs, and may come up sheerer than what you see below.
They feel really soft to touch, and I loved that these don’t irritate the legs either. They aren’t a rough net at all, so you can glide these on the skin with such ease.
The Toes & Ankle: these don’t have reinforced toes, which is a shame but I get it. The benefit though is if you opted for sandals, these work really well!
I did have plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added. Around the feet and ankles, I had a smooth fitted finish, with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: once again a brilliant waistband here. I did feel this was slightly too big for me as it didn’t really hug me, but just sat on me. Don’t get me wrong my tights didn’t move out of place for the whole day, but it would have been nice to get that little grip just to reassure me they will be in place.
I did have a cotton gusset that stayed in place, which is nice if you did wish to go commando.
What a pair! I absolutely love these!
