We liked the Oroblu Repos 40 tights, and this 70 denier version certainly matches the former for the volume of information on the packet. These tights do, too; support, massage, aromatherapy, brew tea, wash the dishes (well, not entirely; we made the last two up to see if you are paying attention!)
We have criticised tights packets in the past for not giving enough information. There is no way you can level that criticism at these tights from Oroblu. If anything, we would say that the wealth of technical knowledge is so overwhelming that you could forget to consider how they look and feel.
This is anything but a new style, but we have struggled to get a pair for review for some reason. On the first inspection, they have been worth the wait. There is an unmistakable feel of quality to these tights from Oroblu, right up with Wolford and Fogal.
The description ticks all the right boxes, and the price is reasonable too. Have we found a new hot contender in our favourite 15 denier category?
It is over two years since we last saw any tights from the Oroblu Couture collection, far too long, considering that we rated them on par with Wolford for quality.
Those of us with long memories will recall that lace pattern hosiery was very much the in-thing in the mid-1980s. We liked them then, and we want them now too. So how do the current designs stand up?
We did a bit of a double-take when we started to read the description of these tights. Oroblu is synonymous with class, quality, sophistication, and up to the minute design.
As we write this review, there is 8” of snow on the ground outside, and it is -12C, not the sort of weather we expect in Cheshire, even in January. So no surprise that the request today was for some lovely opaque tights.
We were taken by the design of these tights and how great the black colour looks with red that we entirely overlooked the fact that they are support tights.
It is interesting to see that Oroblu class these 20 denier tights as semi-sheer, where others describe 20 denier as sheer. It may be that the 3D technology results in a thicker, more opaque fabric with a fine thread.
