Easter is nearly here but the weather in England has gone cold so what better time to try some nice warm opaque tights.
These tights are from the Exclusive collection from Fiore, we do not have a price but we expect they will retail for about £3.00.
As usual the Fiore packet provides a wealth of information on construction. Our test pair are exactly as described, flat seams in the panty and a cotton lined gusset. The waistband is attached to the panty through a finger band which merges into the reinforced strip either side of the main seams, what Fiore call “T-Band” detailing.
The straight legs are finished with lightly reinforced toes, almost invisible but not quite. Sheer to waist with good even colour these are tights you can wear with any length of skirt or shorts and any type of footwear. A soft matt finish and accurate sizing ensure these tights feel as good as they look.
Once again Fiore show us just how could tights can be without costing the Earth.
