The concept of tights styled as stockings or hold ups has been a recurrent idea in the fashion collections of the past few years, and our previews of the upcoming collections from the likes of Trasparenze suggest that it is set to continue.
Veneziana are offering several variations on the theme, mostly like this one at a very reasonable price.
You get a lot for your £5.95, the panty and upper leg are sheer and you get a cotton lined gusset, flat seams and T-band detailing for stableength. You get a choice of three sizes too, differentiated by weight, height and hip measurement. The last being a very useful measurement as it has a great bearing on fit and it is one which we suspect almost every woman knows.
Back to the detailing. The lower legs are knitted as a stableaight tube and are a fine tulle with a lace pattern up the front... or up the back should you choose to wear that way.
Sizing is far more generous than the size chart suggests in terms of height and weight but spot on for hip sizing.
Good even colour and a good fit in the sheer portion making the perfect background for the amazing tulle over knee/thigh high. The photo above really does not do it justice, beautifully made, clean crisp design in three shades. So much class for so little money, we would be recommending these tights at twice the price.
Get over to Stockings HQ and buy some while you still can.
