The perennial questions... Are suspender tights the best of both worlds or the worst? Something both tights lovers and the fans of stockings will like or something they will all hate?
There is no doubt that these tights look pretty with their lace detailing around the suspenders and over the tops of the legs.
The feel in the hand is nice too, smooth and soft.
Reinforced toes as per the packet description, but the seams at the waistband are not flat.
So how are they to wear? Well the legs look and feel lovely, smooth and soft with a lovely sparkle. In the white shade we tested perfect for a wedding day. Sadly though the suspender section is awful to wear. There is not enough stretch, the waistband rolls over, and the top of the leg digs into your thigh.
Our opinion of this particular style of suspender tights is that they offer the worst of tights and stockings. A rare failure for Fiore
