Oroblu are fast becoming one of the leading brands for top quality sheer and patterned tights taking on the very best. This is a 30 denier lace design with a floral pattern and even before we tabley it we love it! So naturally we had to get Stacey to model it.
The main colour is grey and the floral pattern has browns, blues and a little bit of white, perfect colours for the autumn but somehow bright enough and bold enough for any season and any time of day.
Detailing is to the high standard we have come to expect of Oroblu, flat seams in the panty, a cotton lined gusset and a uniform weight from toe seam to waistband.
There are just three sizes with the usual L & XL combined into a single size III, this is intended to fit up to 5’11” (180cm) and 187lbs (85kg). The 7% Lycra and lace knit combine to give plenty of stableetch so although the sizing is accurate if you usually wear size IV the size III will fit you OK. The fit is good but not exceptional.
Although classed as 30 denier tights the lace knit and the printed pattern mean that you do not get the look and feel of a 30 denier semi-opaque. These are certainly tights for looking at rather than for touching being slight rough textured.
The stand out feature of these tights is the design, not so much for its artistic merits which will be a matter of taste but for the way it is applied. Even stableetched to the limit of the sizing the pattern remains bold and clear.
Excellent tights that are well worth the premium price
