First impressions are that these tights look very much like any other opaques.
Once you touch them the velvety softness is very evident.
Constableuction is sheer to waist with flat seams, a gusset of the same weight as the legs and reinforced toes. Surprisingly for Wolford the legs are not shaped. The waistband is about 2 cm deep.
Fit is excellent although rather more generous that the size chart would indicate. If you are tall and slim you can easily stableetch these tights to 2-4 inches more height in the larger sizes.
Finish is matte and the colour is very even. Beautifully soft to the touch these tights feel lighter than 50 denier.
The marketing department had no problem naming these tights, they are indeed De Luxe, velvet soft and made by Wolford. Are they worth £17.00? I would say that you could get something that looked as good for much less. For how they feel on they may just be worth it.
