Hooo Hooo Hoooowwwll
Hooo hooo hoooowwwll! I went to visit my old friend Karen and we had a fantastic natter about cancer treatment over a cuppa. Her hubby used to work for the local tights factory and on hearing about my blog gave me a couple of pairs of tights. This is one of them. “House of Holland” blue houndstooth tights. Yes they are very blue and yes they are very houndstoothy. In the light of the house, I decided to wear my new fluffy skechers heeled boots with them. I walked out and in natural light I looked a little more than odd.
After a quick trip to the local village shops, I felt they weren’t the most ideal footwear and opted for these grey platformed heeled boots for my excursion into town this afternoon. You decide.
My only criticism is the length. Being “one size”, I experienced wrinkly ankles and the waistband coverage was vast. My whole belly area was comfortably covered and if I tried I would be able to recreate the safe sex scene in “The Naked Gun” film.
These were described on the packet as “dogtooth pattern” and only after staring at it for hours do I even get a hint of dog tooth. I initially thought it was a rusched effect with the darker areas being a bit of gathered material and on inspection the pattern is just a really clever way of the weave. When the tights are fresh on they feel great. Comfortable and sturdy and sleek, but when up and about doing daily chores they did slip and start to fall, quite drastically if I’m going to be honest. I have to wear my tights quite high on the waist and I frequently felt these way below my belly button and with the desire to go even furthur. I love the pattern and the sleekness of the hosiery but I need a better balance of sleekness to slippage if I’m going to rate these higher.
Really, the most comfortable tights in the world?
I’m testing these to see if they really are the most comfortable tights in the world.
I wore these ten days ago and I entered an alternate reality where there was no pinching, no slipping, no toe squashing. I felt like a swadled baby but with the flexibility of a dancer.
Would I get the same emotions on a second wear after being washed?
I still think they’re a comfortable pair of tights but I did experience a bit of gravitational pull and had to pull them up a few times. This could also be from changes in the elastic after a wash which I tend to experience by how squashed my toes feel at the end of the day. The waistband is nice and wide and did still fit flat on my tummy. My silhouette was a different story but I’m not going to blame the hosiery for that just the cut price shortbread biscuits and post Christmas chocolates. Like a second viewing of a house the tights are excellent and without the euphoria they are a very comfortable pair of tights just maybe not in the world.
