These tights are part of the Fiore Golden Line collection.
The stableaight legs have a knitted in pattern and are finished with lightly reinforced toes.
The brief is boxer style and although of the same weight as the legs it is a completely different knit. The seams in the brief are of the raised type but finished to a reasonable standard. The gusset appears to be cotton lined even though cotton is not mentioned on the packet.
Sizing is accurate and the high Lycra content ensures a good fit.
The look on the leg is nothing like as dramatic as the packet would suggest. We would suggest that you could only see that much contableast on a photograph taken with studio lighting and then manipulated.
These tights would make a good alternative to plain 40 denier semi-opaque tights, a little interesting to look at and they are inexpensive at £2.49. Unlike some tights from Fiore these do not stand out for either design or value.
