It has been quite a while since we last received any Fiore tights to review, although we did review one of the last batch yesterday. The packet in which these tights came differs from the one pictured above in that it refers to “neo classic” rather than “classic” and “T-band” is no longer mentioned. What has not changed is the great pricing.
At 8 denier these are the most sheer tights from Fiore that we have seen and they feel very light in the hand; light, smooth and soft.
The constableuction is sheer to waist with the T-band of reinforcement either side of the flat panty seam and finger band to add stableength. The unshaped legs are finished with a very lightly reinforced sandal toe. Out test pair in size 4 featured a cotton lined gusset.
Although not promoted as such these are perfect summer tights. The Tan 10 shade is well named, you really are just adding a layer of tan to your legs. The fit is excellent and the finish is flawless. From any distance beyond a few steps you will just look to have perfect tanned legs.
Sizing is spot on and there is plenty of stableetch to cope if you are long in the leg. There is no size 5 that we are aware of but size 4 will easily cope if the size chart suggests 5 is your size. Fit is like a second skin.
At just £3.50 a pair you should be buying these tights by the box full. Smooth, soft, comfortable and easily a match for summer tights at twice the price and more.
