Mario Testino – one of the most influential and leading photographers of our time, and even if you aren’t too familiar with the name you would’ve seen his portraits on front pages of high end magazines including Vogue and Vanity Fair (he was the man behind the camera when shooting what was said to be Princess Diana’s last major portrait session in 1997, 12 weeks before her death). So, who better to strengthen the emotional presence of the luxury  Wolford brand than Testino himself?!

The brand have turned up the heat this July with a sneak peek revealed of their new campaign, featuring model Caroline Winberg oozing sex appeal in stylish but provocative black and white photographs. The way Testino collaborates the product and the personality within these pictures creates an original and motivating theme for the refocus of Wolford.

So if one of the world’s most famous fashion photographers (whose persistence in shooting Gisele is credited to be an elevation to her high status today) is shooting exclusive hosiery and bodysuits which reflect the modern woman- why wouldn’t you want to join in and give yourself some instant glamour in the sensual hosiery?!

Here’s the exclusive selection Testino was papping this season and our recommendations on where to wear them in AW14…

Lunch out with Friends

For when it’s time for nibbles with fellow fashion lovers only the WOLFORD RICE DOT TIGHTS will do. Their elegant spotty design turns my pals green with envy as they sip their lattes. Made in a fine 15 denier, these pretty patterned tights are available in several shades, but Sahara/Purple is my absolute favourite for something a little of the beaten track. If patterns just are not your cup of tea, but you still want legs that impress, then shine away in the Wolford Luxe 9 denier tights. Their natural shades provide an instant air brushed look and their slight sheen finish further flatters those pampered legs.

Boasting a 40 denier strength  (they feel practically indestructible!) and 20 denier appearance, these sumptuous semi-opaque tights are delectably shiny and luxurious. Available in a range of shades, including natural colours, they’ll give you unparalleled coverage for a flawless finish and even complexion.

It can be nerve wracking enough meeting up with that special someone, so luckily you can depend on Wolford quality to guarantee that snags remain a pest of the past. Make a great impression with the WOLFORD BOOTLACE TIGHTS. Believe me ladies, when I say bootlace, I mean that from the toes to the mid-thigh an actual elasticated satin ribbon has been threaded through knitted loops creating the illusion of a laced up boot. This gorgeous detailing is accompanied by a pattern of small black dots, while their nude 20 denier covers any flaws with no need for photoshop – the perfect way to accentuate your best assets!

There are certain occasions when only sultry stockings will do, and those occasions demand the WOLFORD INDIVIDUAL 10 DENIER STOCKINGS, featuring luxurious levels of softness and enviable coverage banishing those blemishes. What if your date suggests a walk along the chilly Thames? In that case it is time to elevate the denier in the WOLFORD FATAL 80 SEAMLESS STAY UPS. As deadly chic as their name suggests, they provide the comfort of hold ups while at the same time keep those legs lovely and toasty.. Made with care to avoid any seams you can rest assured that your outfit will stay free from any unsightly lines.

Guest Blog: The PR Girl

Sidonie-portraitWe managed to persuade top PR girl Sidonie Goldman from Wolford to tell about a typical day in the Wolford PR office, and also to give us her top picks for the season ahead?

My day in the busy press office at WOLFORD

What I love about my job is that each day is different!? Here?s a snapshot of what is happening in our busy press office?

- 8.50am – Arrive at the office.? Take a look at all the press clippings and social medi

- 9.00am – Meeting with my team about the day?s tasks and weekly project

- 10.30am – Meeting with Marketing Director of the Canary Wharf Shopping Centre, where one of our stores is: establishing Social media strategy for Christmas and how we are going to optimise traffic in our boutiqu

- 12.30pm – Lunch meeting with blogger Alexandra Zagalsky from Beautifulyou.com: before lunch I took her to one of our boutiques to see the collection in its natural environment. We discussed different posts, imagery and possible competitions…

- 2pm – Back to the office – calling and emailing a few magazines to see if they need any Wolford tights for their forthcoming stories – catching up on emails and calls.

- 4pm ? Off out again to meet with a designer (can?t say which ? top secret!) to talk about their show during LFW in February and determine if I can help them with hosiery.

- 5pm – Back to the office again for yet more emails?

- 5.30 to 6pm – End of the day, I need to go home and have a glass of wine!

Take a look at my top picks for your hosiery drawer for SS14?


Velvet de Luxe 66?Tights
These are my all time favourite. They will take me from morning meeting to parties in the evening ? I just have to add a big necklace or cocktail ring for the evening, change my shoes from flats to Nicholas Kirkwood heels and it?s done!

Individual 10 Control Top?Tights
I really like nude tights, even in the summer. In France we are used to going out with a pair of tights on, it finishes the silhouette and gives you great body contour – plus they give your legs a beautiful and even tone.? I normally wear a pair with a barely visible reinforced toe, they last longer and are great with open toe shoes and sandals.

Trend: SS14 Bootlace Tights
I wore this pair in Black/Black for the press day and everybody commented on them. They are definitely a show stopper and will actually look good on all body shapes, you don’t have to wear a mini skirt. I wear it with pencil skirt and a nice pair of black simple high heeled shoes. Having said that, I love the whole SS14 collection of Wolford Fashion – it will definitely be very difficult to choose between all the amazing styles!

Gothic gets a glamorous makeover as Pamela Mann create the Sheer Crosses Tights. Subtle enought to wear to work and then to the bar, copy Suzanne’s chic style and team yours with an all-black outfit.


Layering your hosiery is a shortcut to Halloween kudos, as netted tights are brought to life with coloured opaques. Krys has layered hers over a pair of Jonathan Aston 40D Opaques in ‘Scarlet’ – equal parts snug & spooky!


Whether you love or hate them, there’s no denial that spiders are a must have Halloween motiff. To get Nix’s look, wear fishnet tights underneath patterned sheers for a bewitching touch.

Which girl group is back together now?!

They gave us Eternal Flame and The Tide is High, along with other songs we all love to sing/screech along to at karaoke. They may have gone through a quick line up change before going their separate ways again but this time round the original line up is back…and we can’t wait!

As far as the world of music is concerned, 2013 is most cialis for sale certainly the year of the reunion. Everyone from 5ive to Fleetwood Mac is getting in on the act, and it seems the Atomic Kitten girls are too. Making a debut performance at the Hammersmith Apollo at the end of February, the girls have proven just why we love them again London’s infamous     G-A-Y club last week.Our highlights have to be an appearance from original member Kerry Katona (we’ve missed you Kerry!), Natasha’s

figure hugging trousers and Liz’s choice of hosiery. Showing off her streamlined figure in a white mini-dress, Liz treated her never-ending pins to a pair of the gorgeous Wolford Variete tights. In case you were in any doubt over them, the lovely lady has even tweeted us to confirm her choice!

Notorious for their beautiful quality and pretty patterns, we adore Wolford Tights. As part of the brands SS13 collection, the 20 denier tights are packed full of feminine charm. Along with an alluring back seam detail, the sheer tights also feature a playful polka dot faux hold up design, topped off with a delightful scalloped edge.

Style yours with killer heels to lengthen your legs even more, keeping accessories sweet for a flirty ensemble like Liz. For a more casual look, team your tights with quilted ballet pumps and a sweet chiffon skirt.

We love you, Atomic Kitten!

For the special lady in your life…Mother’s Day.

She’s made you endless sandwiches, mopped up every tear, listened to every moan & groan and still remembers the way you like your tea. The unsung hero of our day to day lives, it’s now time to give a little back to the main woman in our lives – our mother.

I’m using this as the perfect opportunity to spoil mine rotten and if like me, you want to treat her to something a bit special, hosiery is the way forward this Mother’s Day. I think it’s safe to say that the appeal of manically traipsing up and down high streets has been lost on me, so I couldn’t think of anything more blissful than shopping on my sofa with a cup of tea in one hand (a dash of milk, no sugar thanks mum!). Whether you live home or away, that thoughtful gift is a click of a button away, eliminating any department store induced stress at the same time.

If your mother is a fan of all things fancy but categorically refuses to buy if for herself, then why not choose some Wolford? Both gorgeous and luxurious, the Wolford Tulip Tights are great for adding a spring into her step, just in time for the weather to warm up. With a charming tulip print throughout, these look sweet when teamed with that dress you got her for Christmas.

For mothers who prefer a more practical gift, then the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights are the answer. As one of my personal favourites, I can vouch for the opaque tights, delivering function alongside fashion with every wear. Made in 7 fabulous shades, there is a colour for the fussiest of mums out there, and the thick tights will protect her pins from any leftover chill in the air.

Like Mother, Like Daughter? Excluding any ensemble worn between the ages of 12-21, my mother has always been a fan of my wardrobe, and of course, my hosiery collection. In order to stop one of my new favourites going amiss, these Mary Portas & Charnos Baroque Floral Tights are a must! Created by the Queen of Shop herself, Mary Portas, these come in three beautiful shades, with a subtle metallic thread adding a touch of luxe shimmer.

For mums who know their Blu-ray from their Bluetooth, then the latest textile technology may just appeal. Look no further than the new Charnos Emana Control Tights. Made with the unique Emana yarn, these will make her feel good along with looking great.Working to get the blood circulation of your legs going, legs are left glowing, whilst the clock is turned back on any unwanted ageing signs. Featured in the Financial Times, these are the pair to get her & her friends gossiping over!

Now, mums can sometimes be a stubborn bunch, refusing any sort of gift other than a homemade pasta shapes card (yes, sometimes we like to get the PVA glue out), but we’ve got just the thing to get around that. By re-marketing your gift as a top up of ‘everyday essentials’, she can hardly refuse. Falke Shelina Tights should be right at the top of the list, as they are mine. Spring has crept up rather quickly, so soon rainy, blustery days will be replaced with sunshine. With that comes shorter hemlines and the need for Kate Middleton barely there sheers. The Shelina Tights offer coverage and peace of mind, as the illusion of flawless legs is created – a favourite in the office as well!

And for those ankles? It’s not unknown that some of us prefer the little things in life, and this applies to mothers too. From the everyday cotton numbers, to the more luxurious cashmere, there is a pair for all! As we’re currently stuck in a tricky transitional month weather-wise, socks are great when worn under boots. For me, nothing says love more than cashmere socks, so the Pantherella Candy Knee Highs are going straight into my shopping basket for her. The cashmere makes them wonderfully soft against the leg, redefining comfort every time they’re pulled on, whilst the fresh Spring shades bring a little light to any rainy day. If you know she won’t wear a knee high boot, try the shorter Pantherella Candy Anklet version which packs just as much charm.dleton barely there sheers. The Shelina Tights offer coverage and peace of mind, as the illusion of flawless legs is created – a favourite in the office as well!

For those that are all fingers and thumbs when it comes to wrapping presents, MyTights can take care of that for you. Simply select the gift wrap option on

the checkout page and voila! A beautifully wrapped present will arrive through the post, and we don’t even mind if you want to take credit…

So there you have it! Spoiling her has never been so simple and your preparation in the run up to Mother’s Day shall remain hassle free. Hooray!

Until next time…




P.S We offer a next day delivery service for the forgetful amongst us! Shh…

P.P.S It’s on the 10th – next Sunday.

MyTights in the Daily Mail: It’s not just us that loves them!

We’ll have to admit, this week has been jam packed with hosiery praise from the press and we can’t wipe the smiles off our

faces! One particular display of affection for tights has got us blushing, as we receive top marks from Daily Mail journalist, Marianne Powers.

Charnos Two Tone Floral Opaque Tights – 9/10

Securing us a hat trick for the score out of ten, these gorgeous patterned tights were congratulated on their good quality and “sturdy” feel.

Wolford Botanica Tights – 10/10

Full marks! Taking us to

prime position on the hosiery leader board, our Wolford net tights proved that looking good doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort. “Ridiculously comfortable”, the fine net tights were saluted for remaining subtle and sexy, with a generous fit to boot.
