I finally got round to writing my latest review, sorry for the wait!
Today I am focusing on Cecilia de Rafael - Zafiro 50 Denier Velvet Touch
I bought them from DressMyLegs in a nice teal 'Blu Notte' colour, the customer service was very good, asked if they could help in any way with my purchasing needs and the products arrived promptly. What I really like about their website is the colour comparison, when you hover over a colour it gives you more than the normal 'Marino' colour description.
"In a range of classy colours with such premium quality features as flat seams and shaped heel, these 50 Denier opaque tights are an all-seasons favourite! Thanks to the new 3D technology, they will cling to your legs like a second skin for a velvety soft, sleek finish all day long."
The tights are 50 denier, they come with a reinforced toe and the brief is sheer to waist.
Fabric Content: 88% polyamide, 12% elastene
They are available in 5 sizes, I got them in Size 4
Cecilia de Rafael have made a wide colour range, all though I haven't found them all when searching, this maybe due to getting close to the end of the season though.
The tights are soft, comfortable and fit really well, even around the ankle (probably due to the Lycra 3D technology). The waistband sits really nicely above the waist and so far today I haven't had to pull them up or adjust them. On me the tights come up a less opaque than the picture above, but I personally like the level opacity.
As I mentioned I got mine from DressMyLegs, priced at €11.95, but they are also available from other stores including UK Tights whom I've found to be very good in the past.
They feel really well made, good value and I'd love to get them in a few different colours as I think they could be a staple of my wardrobe! I would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks for reading as as always feel free to comment or message me on Twitter if you have any questions.
