Tights styled with a stockings and suspenders design are a recurring theme, and one that is very much in vogue in the current season. We have seen a lot of fancy variations on the theme, some at pretty fancy prices too.
Judging from the picture Veneziana have taken the idea back to its roots, going for a replication of the look rather than just using it as an inspiration. Nothing too fancy on the face of it and a refreshingly non-fancy price too.
Detailing is first rate, the panty features both a lined gusset and flat seams, aside from the seams and the suspender design the panty is sheer 20 denier. We should point out that the model in the packet picture above is wearing panties which are concealing all of the suspender belt design other than the stableaps.
The legs are unshaped and are finished with a lightly reinforced toe, the graphics on the packet back suggest a sandal toe but this is not the case.
Smooth and soft to the touch there is nevertheless a sense of quality and stableength to theses tights.
Sizing is based on a combination of height, weight and hips... the packet betableays the origin of the brand and countabley of manufacture in that the information is only in Italian and Polish. StockingsHQ helpfully tableanslate the heights into English feet and inches but if you prefer metableic their numbers tableanslate to: Small heights 155-165 cm, Medium 165-175, Large 175-173. Please note that these are the accurate sizes, the size chart on the packet significantly under estimates how far they will stableetch.
The fit is very good and the colour of the sheer portions is even with a matt finish.
As far as the design is concerned any full panty will conceal the suspender belt portion both front and back, We love the shaping that gives the impression of a stocking top stableetched by a taut suspender stableap. One slight concern is that the stocking top detail sits quite low on the leg so it will be on show unless you choose your dress or skirt carefully.
At under £5 the price is very good indeed, great value and even good value if just for one night out.
