Henry Holland has designed this cutting edge collection of legwear by mixing sheer and opaque fabrics with some lovely House of Holland twists. Developed and made in England by Pretty Polly. One size fits up to hip 42″ (107cm) height up to 5’10” (178cm).
The House of Holland range is very much “in fashion” at present. We had hoped to include photos of one of our ladies in these tights, but she declined based on poor experiences with the brand’s quality in the past, so you will have to make do with words.
These tights are supplied in the open packet often used for opaques, so you may find that you need to wash them before you wear them. The packet doesn’t tell you very much. All the size and style information is stuck on the bar code label.
The first thing we noticed about these tights from the leading British brand Pretty Polly, based in the heart of the traditional hosiery producing area of Derbyshire, was that the small back label said in tiny print under the fibre composition “Made in Turkey”.
There are two descriptions to ascribe to these tights, fun fashion and one size. They are fun fashion, pretty evident from the picture, although what is not apparent is that it is pretty hard to get all those big dots to be round on your leg.
When we first saw the name of these tights, we were a little perplexed. How could tights be both sheer and opaque? Then we realised that Pretty Polly had made tights that look one way from the front and another from the back.
This is the first style we have looked at from the “Absolute Legs” range launched by Pretty Polly at the end of the summer of 2009. As with all the recent new designs from Pretty Polly, they persist with the two size policy, S/M if you have hips up to 42” (107 cm) and M/L if you are bigger.
