Wolford Cassy Tights

This is another pair that I managed to get for a bargain price. I got this pair from TKMaxx as well, so I do hope if you have one near you that you can get a pair before they sell out.

Otherwise I have provided a link below, which currently does still sell them but I don’t know how much longer they will.

My Outfit

I thought I would funk it up a little for work today. I paired my slouchy white shirt with my leather shorts and added some booties to finish off the look. I wanted to wear my platform boots with these but thought they would be too much, so I changed them to the ones below.

The Review

From The Website: Special net: The interesting pattern of these soft, circular-knit tights surprises with a seemingly three-dimensional, wave-like look that goes right up to the waist.

Sewn-on waistband featuring the Wolford logo
An expressive styling partner for many looks.

 

The Packaging: there’s not much to say here as I explained quite a lot with images below. The model wears them on the front and the back goes into a little more detail.

When you get in, you will find the COQ and the tights wrapped around promo card. These come flat folded rather than with foot and leg shaping to them.

 

Getting Them On: well as these are a net design, this means I need to make sure my scrunch and roll doesn’t get caught in my anklets. I took my time getting them on and then rolled them up the legs once I got them past the knees.

On The Legs: let me speak about the design to begin with. I have done a similar pair before (I can’t remember the brand at all) which were a cheap pair but were ok to wear overall.  This is one that I know not a lot of people will really like, as it’s a little punk-like and not so feminine. I wanted to try them out as I wanted to see what they would look like dressed up for work.

If I am honest, I am not too sure what I think about these. I really want to say that they are nice, and they are to some degree, but it’s a pair that I wasn’t too comfortable wearing and showing off as I felt they did nothing for me and just looked a little blah.

The quality of them are always great when it comes to Wolford, and I never have an issue there with their items. There is enough stretch for my legs and these would certainly last a good while if they are taken care of.

The fit of them are true to size, and I would recommend checking the sizing guide before you purchase. I do feel if you did go one size up, you wouldn’t get these stretched out so much on the legs as there would be a little more material. I would like to have tried these in size Small to see what they would look like and if there was any difference.

The feel of them are semi-smooth – and I say that because they aren’t rough netting but they’re not completely smooth on the legs either. The netting is soft compared to other brands I have tried, and they certainly don’t itch the legs which is always a good sign.

 

The Toes & Ankle: around the toes I don’t think it’s reinforced so I will say be careful with you toenails here. The toe seam starts with the netted design and this works right up to the band.

There is plenty of wiggle room for the toes, and no pressure is added around here during the day either.

Around the ankles it’s a lovely fitted finish.

The Waistband & Gusset: the waistband is always great to me. It sits around my belly button and stays put all day long, with a lovely hugging fit. I can’t say that my tights felt like they were slipping at any point.

The gusset as you can see below is a large patch (roughly palm size) based in the middle of the tights, so you get a wide section if you wish to go commando.

My Thoughts?

Overall I think the quality is great and they fit so well without any issues, but I’m not keen on the design for a change. I think that is the first time I have not like a Wolford design. I think it could have been much better, but that’s my personal opinion 🙂
