Gatta Jungle 10 Tights

Gatta Jungle 10 Tights are delectable!

Gatta gives their styles numbers as well as names so in this case, the 10 in the name does not refer to denier. The denier is 40, and 10 is the style number within the Jungle collection.

There was a time that Polish hosiery brands provided amazing quality at surprisingly low prices. Now we have grown to expect the quality, but the prices remain reasonable at a time, whereas some brands have merely gone crazy with their prices.

Wow! We were not expecting what we saw when we opened the packet. Our test pair came described as “Topino”, which is not a colour but the name of a bird, “Sand Martin” in English. The colour was a mid to dark grey and on to that is printed a pattern of black zebra stripes, vertical at foot and ankle and horizontal than to the top of the thigh. The pattern is printed front and back.

Regarding construction everything is quite simple, straight legs, unlined gusset and standard raised seams. There is a definite change of weight at the top of the leg where the pattern ends; the semi-opaque leg gives way to a more sheer boxer style brief.

We love the pattern on the leg and the weight and finish of the legs too, but for us, it all goes wrong with the panty which is just rather ordinary and has no place on tights at £9.30. These are basic semi-opaque tights jazzed up with a single colour printed design.

Sizing is on the generous side, yet is very accurate, and we can’t fault the level of fit and comfort either.

Quite a unique look but one that needs a skirt that will keep the panty covered.

Gatta Glossy Ann Tights

Gatta Glossy Ann Tights are great fun!

There was no clue in the packet notes but as you can see from the picture these tights make use of something very like Lurex to provide sparkle. The tights themselves are smooth soft, and matt and the sparkle is a printed on design. It appears as though “Ann” in the name of a style from Gatta indicates an added pattern.

This style comes in three sizes, (2-4) all of which have open reinforced toes, straight legs, a gusset and flat seams in the panty. The sizing is accurate, but not generous. Indeed if you are a particularly leggy 185cm (6’1”) tall, you may need to do a little careful stretching of the legs.

The pattern is restricted to the legs only, the panty and the tops of the legs are plain. The pattern is maximum intensity in the middle of the front and back of the legs reducing to almost nothing at the sides. Before putting the tights on it seemed the patterned reduced in intensity going down the leg but the different amounts of the stretch at thigh and ankle once on resulted in an even look on the legs. Very clever!

As the pattern is added to what is, in essence, a pair of sheer to waist matt tights the fit and comfort levels are outstanding, and the panty looks and feels far better than the boxer style top it visually resembles.

Gorgeous tights that will get your legs noticed for a very reasonable cost. Fun party tights that would work well with a classy and sophisticated evening outfit too.

Gatta Gisele Tights

Gatta Gisele Tights are exceptional!

Gatta love to take everyday sheers and embellish them with additional details, the Gisele styles carry a simple motif over the foot and up the outside of each calf, the 07 variations having a vine and flower motif in the same colour as the tights.

The base tights are matt finish, sheer to waist tights made with a sandal toe, straight legs, flat seams with reinforcement either side and a lined gusset. Not T-band as there is no finger band connecting the waistband. Soft to the touch, good, even colour.

It seems almost that we are damning these tights with faint praise, but after reviewing several pairs of Gatta tights over the past few days, they are all merging into one, and to say much more would be to risk repeating ourselves.

We should repeat our advice on the sizing. The chart uses weight, height and hip size; our opinion is it is best to select by hip size rather than looking for your height to pick a size. Sizing then is accurate and fit good. Durable tights that feel less soft on your leg than they do in your hand.

Cute tights at a sensible price that offer an exciting alternative to plain sheers. Sensibly priced at £5.99

Gatta has always provided excellent value and consistent quality with their 20 denier fashion sheer tights. Just choose the pattern that suits your look and style, and they won’t let you down.
