Gipsy Pinstripe Flower Tights are super classy!
The packet design allows you to see pretty much what you are getting, so few surprises are opening the packet. Only when you open these tights out, do you see the flat seams and shaped heels that reveal the quality.
The material is soft in hand and has the appearance of something like 15 denier.
The high leg brief has a beautiful lacy border, and the pinstripe motif of the legs is mirrored in the body design. The waistband is finished with a scalloped edge, less classy than the similar offerings from Fogal and Gerbe but a great detail at this price.
Leg length looks pretty good; this is confirmed when you put them on, quite long enough for the longest legs. Good length in the body ensures the waistband sits correctly.
Comfortable tights that fit very well and give a smooth, soft finish between the stripes.
The description on the Gipsy website and the packet don’t fully describe the design. These are tights with a pinstripe design from the reinforced toe to a “garter” band near the top of the thigh, quite a broad pinstripe with just seven verticals around the leg. On the outside of each leg is a geometric floral pattern that runs up the leg between two of the pinstripes. Above the “garter” is sheer material that goes up to the panty. You would never mistake the design for the real hold up stockings. But these are classy, sexy tights that look good in their own right.
You could wear the ivory colour we tested for a wedding. This is the only colour still available, a pity as they look good in black on our shopping website.
