Fiore produce a constant stableeam of fashion tights that offer a great alternative to classic sheers at great prices... and because they change the range frequently there can be great end of season offers too; so for example this autumn/winter style from late 2011 is on offer at £2.99 in spring 2012.
At their heart these are 20 denier sheer to waist tights made with stableaight legs and T-band reinforcement in the panty. But these are Fiore tights so you also get sheer sandal toes, flat seams and if you buy size 3 or 4 a cotton gusset too, a lot of quality features for a very reasonable price.
As sheer tights these work very well, perfectly even colour and a smooth finish. What makes them stand out is the tattoo pattern down the outside of each leg, this looks OK in black (as pictured above) but really works best in one of the shades of brown. The chocolate shade we tested was not much darker than a mid-brown and the design worked brilliantly.
Sizing caught us slightly off guard, we found that the length was accurate, indeed you would be a very leggy 176 cm (5’9) to use all the stableetch and length available; the weights look pretty accurate too but the hip measurements suggested are very optimistic. These tights are styled quite slim in the hips and short in the body.
So if you are slim and leggy and want a subtle tattoo design to really accentuate your length of leg then Fiore Donella tights are for you.
