Review: Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights

Reviewer Emma  40-den-tights
Product Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights
Range N/A
Colour Aubergine
Size One size (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £6.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments I love the shiny look of these tights. The Aubergine shade is very subtle, suitable for any office.
Appearance Score 9/10
Feel comments These tights feel so smooth to the touch. When you put them on they feel very strong. The reinforced brief and toe also give reassurance.
Feel out of ten 10/10
Fit comments They honestly fit perfectly, there’s no clumping around the legs, like you can sometimes get when the tights are too long. Equally, the brief is under no strain which can happen when the tights are too small.
Fit out of ten 9/10
Value for Money Comments These tights provide great value for money. They look great and feel very durable.
Value for Money out of ten 10/10
So, Does it Work?  N/A
General comments Slight sheen semi-opaques in a subtle yet interesting shade.
Any Tips or Care Instructions? It’s best to wash these tights in a hosiery bag. This protects the tights from any embellishments on your clothes and also they won’t tangle up with your other clothes. If you don’t have a hosiery bag then washing them by hand with a soap and warm water is fine.

Review: Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Reviewer Emma  pamela-mann-fishnets
Product Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights
Range N/A
Colour Chocolate
Size One size (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £5.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments They look very small when you first put them on, but the material is extremely stretchy. You just have to keep pulling (carefully!)
Appearance Score 9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these net tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I had to wriggle into them, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these tights won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.
Feel out of ten 10/10
Fit comments The tights were a touch on the small side but net tights do allow for more flexibility so it wasn’t a problem.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments As with many nets, these fishnets are strong enough to wear again and again so you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of them.
Value for Money out of ten 8/10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments Good value fishnets available in a wide range of colours.

Review: Charnos Honeycomb Tights

Reviewer Emma  EmmaCharnosHoneycomb
Product Charnos Honeycomb Tights
Range N/A
Colour Black
Size S/M (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £6.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments An intriguing alternative to Fishnets. The appearance will depend slightly on dress size. The honeycomb effect will be clearer for curvier ladies, whereas, if you’re slim the look is more subtle.
Appearance Score  9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these patterned tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I bought a size too small, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these sheers won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.
Feel out of ten 10
Fit comments  I plumped for a S/M because my dress size is 8. However, the tights felt a bit small because I usually take a 10 in trousers/shorts. If you are borderline between 2 sizes (like me) then l would advise choosing the larger size. The boxer brief felt quite tight but this would be solved by getting the larger size.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments At £6 these tights provide very good value for money for such a lovely design. l am extremely happy with my purchase and keen to try out new Charnos products.
Value for Money out of ten 10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments A subtle and sexy take on the classic fishnets look.
Any Tips or Care Instructions? Again go for a bigger size if in doubt. With regards to washing, a machine wash should be fine for these tights if you do not have time to wash your tights by hand, though we alwayd recommend using a hosiery bag.

Review: Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over the Knee Socks

best antivirus software for windows 7
Reviewer Gisela ?trasparenze-dora-socks
Product Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib OTK Socks
Range Trasparenze
Colour Black
Size OneSize
Price ?8.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) Can’t go wrong with black – classic, failsafe and go with everything – but these also come in a muted brown and a rich wine shade if you’re looking for a little more interest!
Appearance comments Very classic, not too flashy.
Appearance Score 9/10
Feel comments Extremely soft, they really feel great on your legs.
Feel out of ten 10/10
Fit comments Like almost every over the knee sock, these do tend to slip down. If you’re moving around a lot in these socks, you’re going to have to pull them up from time to time. Good thing is they don’t usually slip down past the knee, like other over the knee socks that I have tried.
Fit out of ten 8/10
Value for Money Comments These socks are so warm and soft – they feel more expensive than they are! Definitely worth ?8
Value for Money out of ten 9/10
So, Does it Work? Keeps me warm, keeps me comfy, and doesn’t fall past the knee. Works for me!
General comments They come up a little higher than some other over the knee socks, which I really like. Keeps more of your legs warm and looks a little less “school girl-ish”
Any Tips or Care Instructions? Follow the instructions and make sure to handwash these delicate socks! It’ll keep them from getting any snags.

Review: Spanx Higher Power Brief

english homework help

Reviewer

Hannah ?higher-power-brief

Product

Spanx Higher Power Brief

Range

Spanx Higher Power

Colour

Nude

Size

B (I’m a dress size 10)

Price

?32.95

Colour Comments (if applicable)

A pretty classic nude shade that didn’t show up underneath my sheer blouse!

Appearance comments

At first sight, this looks pretty scary – tiny when you first take it out of the pack, I wondered how I was even going to fit one leg in, leg along a bum and pair of hips too!? But the different sections ressured me that this was a product tailored to fit a real person’s body,? The fabric is functional rather than beautiful – if you’re after shapewear that’s a little sexier I’d try the Spanx Slimplicity range which is a bit more glamorous to the eye, or opt for a black shade instead.

Appearance Score

5/10

Feel comments

As outlined above, the name of the game here is function, so when it comes to the fabric don’t expect anything too fancy.? Perfectly comfortable, though, and with a cotton gusset and cotton brief it’s soft enough to keep me happy.

Feel out of ten

9/10

Fit comments

Be warned – this shaper looks tiny when you take it out of the pack and it does take some wriggling to get into (particularly over the hips and derriere).? Once on, though, I found it to be comfortable and I soon stopped noticing it.? Yes, it does feel constricting at first, but that’s just the strong shaping support working its magic.? If you really feel it’s too tight, chances are you may need to go up a size, but I found that size B was perfect and correct as per the product’s size guide.

Fit out of ten

8/10

Value for Money Comments

At just over ?30, this is relatively cheap shapewear.? Yes, you will find slightly cheaper on the market, but I find this to be the best quality and most effective product in this price range.? When you consider how many times you’ll wear it (and what you’d spend on a dress you only wear a handful of times) it’s actually a complete bargain!

Value for Money out of ten

9/10

So, Does it Work?

Shapewear is not a miracle worker – if you’re a size 14 it’s not going to make you a size 8.? But this strong control shaper will give you a smooth silhouette under tight clothing, eliminating lumps, bumps and unsightly bulges, and it definitely flattened my tummy. Plus I found when I was wearing it I became more aware of my posture, sitting up straighter and walking a little taller.

General comments

A classic shapewear style for all who need a little waist and hip shaping – great value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to a friend.

Any Tips or Care Instructions?

To stop the top from rolling down, firstly make sure you have chosen the correct size, and put it in in front of a mirror, ensuring that the back is pulled up as high as the front (this is a common cause of rolling waistbands).? Finally, put on your bra over the top of the waistband – this will effectively “pin” it into place and also help to create a silhouette uninterrupted by bulges.
