When last we looked at Cervin stockings it was a 100% nylon style, what we have here is a style made with a modern fibre combination. Although French made the 85/15 mix is classic Italian.
As well as three sizes 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 the range of fit is aided by the stretch from Lycra, great for taller ladies who find the sizing from Cervin less than generous and so cannot wear their 100% nylon styles. Heights and weights up to 185cm/6’1” and 105kg/230lb are accommodated by the largest size.
First impressions? Well smooth soft and a little tights like to the touch and even in size 5/6 they are tiny!
Design is very tights like, sheer reinforced toe with run stop, shaped (boarded) heel, knitted in stocking top pattern. You can easily see this design being tweaked to make hold ups or tights.
Hmmm. these are either the shortest stockings ever or our test pair was mislabelled. On out admittedly leggy model the bottom of the stocking top was at mid-knee... yes knee!
So no full review possible, a pity as the colour looked good and even and the top detail attractive.
