Review: The Stylish Fox Fiore Opaque Tights

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summary: The Stylish Fox’s Giana and Malena opaque tights are one of the season’s best buys.  Made of super soft microfiber, these tights are warm, comfy, and incredibly affordable. 4 out of 4 stars.

Review: I know I’m stating the obvious here, but it’s cold. Just last week, Huffington Post reported that 49 out of 50 states had snow on the ground, and I’m sure you caught all the news reports of near total shutdowns in New York City, Atlanta, and Seattle (among other places).

If there’s anything us lingerie addicts need more of in our wardrobes right now, it’s tights.  Thick, warm, soft tights at reasonable prices so we can buy a half dozen pairs at a time (I’m not the only person who buys tights by the half dozen, am I?).  That’s why I’m so excited about introducing you to the new online boutique, The Stylish Fox…because in this kind of weather, there’s no such thing as too many tights.

The Stylish Fox was kind enough to send me a couple of pairs to test drive and it’s time to report back with my results. Just as a quick reminder if you want to take a look, I wore the Giana tights and the Malena tights, both by Fiore. 

The first thing I want to say is that these tights are super durable.  I’ve worn and washed each pair three times (even machine washing once…bad, I know) and they still look and feel good as new.  And if you follow me on Twitter, you know I’ve been ripping my nylons a lot lately so durability is very important to me right now.

The second thing I want to say is that these tights are really warm, really soft, and really cute.  Warm, soft, and cute is pretty much the holy trinity of legwear, especially when it comes to opaque tights because they can sometimes be a bit ugly and uncomfortable.  I live in Seattle (which has crap weather nine months out of the year) and these tights kept my legs feeling good all day long.  Oh…and they fit true to size!  I tested a size 4 (which was my size on the size chart), and they fit perfectly.

The third thing I want to say is that these tights are a great deal. They feel like they should cost $20-24, but they actually cost $11 and $12.65, respectively.  I know that everyone has a different price comfort zone so that may seem expensive compared to some department store brands but trust me when I say it’s an excellent value for the money.  The quality of these tights is better than anything else at this price point.

I know that a good review is supposed to have one or two negatives because, after all, nothing is perfect.  But I’ve literally spent a couple of days now trying to think of something negative to say about these tights and I really can’t come up with anything.  They surpass all of my expectations.

The Stylish Fox is currently running a special where you get free shipping on orders of $50 or more.  If you have questions about any of the other products, you find them on Twitter @TheStylishFox.  Got some feedback about Fiore tights or this review? Tell me in the comments!

    Thank you for the great review, Treacle! I've been a big fan of microfiber hosiery due to the comfort and durability. The patterns are fun, too!

    Treacle,

    I have ordered two different pair of Fiore stockings for my wife with one being the Fiore Golden Gretta fishnets and the other being the thigh high Fiore Sandrine Golden Line Lace Top Hold-ups. What is nice about the Fiore line is being able to order tall sizes. Too many of the Leg Avenue selections are aimed at the 5'4" crowd and my wife is 5'8". Great lace top and they actually stay up!
