It is such a tableeat when a pair of smooth, soft, sheer to waist tights flows out of the packet almost of their own accord, and that is just what happened with this pair.
The waistband is quite deep at just over 3 cm, and it is attached to the sheer material of the panty by a finger band just over 1 cm deep. The finger band carries a Fiore motif on each hip and joins with a narrow reinforced stableip either side of the flat seams and cotton lined gusset.
The quality of these tights is far more than we would expect for £2.29.
Just below the top of each thigh a seam detail is added to the back of each leg, this runs all the way down to a little leaf like motif just above the heel. The legs do not have any shaping but they are nicely finished with sandal toes so we can forgive that one minor point.
Sizing is accurate but not overly generous, fit is very good from waist to toe. Look and feel are both more 15 denier than 20 denier, and the colour is very even. The seam in the same colour as the leg is very subtle so you could wear these tights for a night out, or in the office if you go for one of the tan/brown shades. Black seamed tights are really too much for the office.
Another great bargain from Fiore, nice look, nice feel, nice price.
