Fist impressions.. these tights feel far lighter than 20 denier. Unwrapping them from the card reveals sheer to waist tights with straight legs and very lightly reinforced toes. They look more sheer than 20 denier too.
The body is finished with flat seams and a cotton gusset, there is just a narrow reinforced strip either side of the seams for strength. Between the 3 cm deep waistband and the sheer material of the legs is a 3 cm deep finger band that carries the Fiore logo on each hip.
Sizing is very good, the Lycra gives both stretch to go slightly beyond the sizing in the size chart and a skin tight fit with no bagging.
The look on the leg is a powder finish. The toes are very sheer so you could wear these tights with open shoes. There is a simple leaf motif on each leg, just above the ankle that may be only hint that you are wearing tights at all.
Excellent tights that are comfortable, good to look at and smooth to the touch. We would swear they were 12 denier if we didn’t know they are 20.
Fantastic value at £2.29.
