Kunert make their Satin Look 15 in tights, stockings and hold ups and having given the tights and stockings very favourable reviews we have high hopes for the hold ups. There is a choice of three colours, black, ivory and cashmere and three sizes.
Quality is apparent as soon as you open the packet, the shiny legs and lacy tops both ooze class. Detailed inspection reveals lightly reinforced toes with a very well finished seam and a run stop feature, the legs are shaped at the heel and topped off with one of the deepest lace tops we have ever seen. The lace top is 16cm (6.5”) deep, it carries two silicone bands at the top to grip your leg.
Sizing spot on with plenty of length for even the longest of legs, but put some thought into what you will wear with these hold ups as the very deep lace lop means that even if the silicone bands are at the top of your thigh the lace top will still extend to mid thigh. Our view is that they are so pretty you should at least be giving a glimpse. When Stacey modelled them for us she opted for the showing the tops off in their entirely.
Fit and finish are top quality, smooth and soft with a delicious sheen. A slightly larger range of colours would be nice as the cashmere shade is quite a dark tan.
