Sheer tights with a floral or vine motif have been a feature of many ranges of hosiery for some time and they can tend to blur together in our minds but this style really caught our eye. The key is the restrained use of the ivy pattern with just a hint at the ankle and the majority where most of the time it will only be glimpsed.
Fiore’s pricing continues to impress as does their range of sizes and the quality features in their tights. At their core these are 20 denier sheer to waist tights with a very lightly reinforced invisible sandal toe, flat seams and a cotton lined gusset (sizes 3&4). T-band reinforcement in the panty provides strength while maintaining the sheer to waist design.
Sizing is spot on and fit, thanks to the Lycra and the gusset, is excellent. Colour is perfectly even throughout and the matt finish is a good background for the design.
The subtle piece of ivy at the ankle look great catches the eye. The design hip to knee is less effective losing a little definition at full stretch, but pair with skirt the right length and you will only be giving teasing glimpses anyway.
Well designed, well made tights at a great price.
