Nicest Hold Ups I've Tried - But Note They're Dark Tan
Reviewed: 25 August 2014 by Petrichor, a Bisexual Going Steady Female
I received these hold ups from LH as a tester, and was excited to try them - I'm the sort of person who prefers wearing hold ups to tights; but I'd only tried relatively cheap multipacks before with very plain tops and I was looking forwards to having some nicer with a lacy pattern at the top.
The packaging was fairly plain, just like normal tights you might buy in any shop, but it was when I opened them I got a surprise - they're BROWN. Now, I know for some people, that IS nude, but I'm a fairly pale individual, and was expecting the colour that the model wears, this was much much darker. I don't know what shade the model wears, but it is definitely NOT the "dark tan", which I realised mine were after reading the description; as it's easy to miss I feel it would be helpful for the shade to be put in the title!
I as a size 8 (although a breathes-in-to-put-on-jeans size 8) went for small/medium, and found the fit really good, they go well at any height! Just above the knee doesn't wrinkle at all lower down, but the also easily stretched right up to cover all of my thighs, which is great for wearing with a short skirt if you don't want the world to be able to see you're wearing hold ups!
Honestly, legs-went-on-holiday-without-me aside, you wouldn't know I was wearing them - my boyfriend couldn't tell at all (and he knows how pale I actually am!) without touching. This means they smooth out imperfections and give a nice glow whilst still looking far more natural than some I've tried, great for anyone who wants to smooth out thread veins, bruises etc, and would be suitable even for the fashion crime of tights with sandals - there isn't a thicker patch over the toes, just a small seam which can easily be hidden underneath your toes, so unless they bent down nobody would see.
Hold ups usually walk a fine line between falling down, and amputating my legs. The elastic in these was still comfortable at the highest (and therefore chubbiest!) part of my thighs, and thanks to the lace finish looked pretty as well - and they stayed up admirably. I first went for a 2 mile walk with a suspender belt on just in case they didn't stay up on their own, but when they never got to the point the suspenders were taught, on the 2 miles back I undid the clips on one side to compare the difference - only 2ml lower, if that which I think is brilliant, and when I took them off while there was a faint pattern on my thigh, it wasn't red at all.
When I first opened them, one hold up was pristine, the other had a couple of pulled threads at the top - not too noticeable, just the slightly thicker darker line where it was. Still better than most I've tried. The material was lovely and smooth, and the fabric and threadcount high enough that you couldn't really make it out as individual threads, which is always good.
I figured a 4 mile walk was probably enough to stress test them thoroughly - and felt very sad at the end, they came SO close to surviving! The one that was in perfect condition out of the packet was... still in perfect condition. No pilling, no holes, no ladders. Great! However the one that arrived with threads already pulled laddered from somewhere unrelated - up from the back of my heel, which was a shame.
These are a really nice pair of hold ups (although if you're not very tanned find a different colour!) and if quality is important to you even in semi-disposable items like tights I would recommend them. I'm sure they would last much longer for anyone less active in their day-to-day life, or who wanted them just for special occasions . I would probably recommend buying more than one pair though, as the advantage of hold ups is if you ladder one, you can just swap it without tossing the entire pair!
- Amazing fit at any height, very natural look, comfortable and durable.
- One hold-up slightly better quality than the other. Not colour shown in picture.
- Bottom line
- Lovely if you don't need durability for day to day - a bit pricey otherwise.
