Charnos Opaque Tights Review

As the weather has turned really cold over the last few weeks it was lovely to be contacted by Charnos to see if I would like to review a pair of their rib opaque tights.

As a fan of wearing my dresses for as long as possible before it gets too cold.

I was pleased to try them out.

About Charnos
Established in 1936, the ‘legsperts’ behind Charnos Hosiery certainly know what they’re doing. From everyday sheers and ‘spoilt for choice’ coloured opaques, to boudoir, party and fashion styles; the stunning Charnos collections give an insight into the wearable high fashion alternative. Offering inspiration to its customer and educating on the power of their legs: a real confidence booster…

I got sent a grey pair of opaque rib tights to road test.

It did take me a few attempts to stretch them and get them on correctly with all the lines going down straight.

Once they were on, they felt lovely. I did slightly catch them on one of my fingers which I wasn’t too pleased with.. (silly girl!!).

As with all tights it’s best to be careful putting them on, especially if you have dry hands or a broken nail.

Being tall I went for the size L-XL and there was plenty of room in them.

They feel very comfortable to wear. I really like the tights and think they are really good quality, even though I did slightly snag them the tiny hole hasn’t moved yet ( not like a cheaper pair would have ) so I’m hoping to get a good few wears out of them.

The rib classic country chic feel opaque tights  are RRP £7  and Available in grey, and new colours, chestnut and ink.

About this review- 

I got sent a pair of Charnos rib tights for the purpose of this review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I was not paid for this post…
