This is the first of a series of reviews of Veneziana tights with whom we’re happy to have engaged in an extended partnership so stay tuned for many more reviews to come.
These beautiful Tweed Botonato grey tights have a thin zigzag motif in black thread combined with evenly spaced grey, orange and black dots. These two patterns combine in a very subtle way into an original classy product that can easily fit into more formal or easygoing outfits and a wide colour palette. The pattern looks awesome around the ankles and also around the thighs at its point of maximum stretch. Although the dots expand along with rest of the fabric they don’t distort or fade providing a really fun detail across the whole extent of the legs.
These 60 denier opaque tights are available in three sizes (ranging heights that go from 155 to 175cm) and feature a nude top ideal for use with extra short skirts and shorts. The elastic fiber used is a Bayer patented fibre made out of 89% Polliammide, 5% Elastan and 3% Cotton which has extremely high quality and will provide your skin with a warm cosy touch.
They cost 12.70€, a price which we find extremely reasonable for opaque tights with this kind of look and feel. You can find them at the Veneziana website through this link in either Graffito or Beige colour. The colour featured on our article is Grafitto which you can also see displayed on the package’s photo and on the website (we’ll try to include some photos of the beige version at some point in the future). We can’t get enough of these tights and we’re betting you’ll feel the same way too.
Stay tuned for reviews of other great styles of Veneziana tights and leggings.
We’ve just received a pair of Alba floral patterned microfibre tights from Fiore’s Golden Line courtesy of Hosiery UK and we’ve put them to the test.
While on the product’s package the floral motifs display a dark pink tone on the tights themselves the colour is indeed a dark red tone as you can see from the photographs. This might easily turn into a brighter shade of red if you’re under the appropriate lighting making them especially great to complement classy black outfits with a splash of red. The pattern is seamless all around the fabric (unlike lesser quality tights) so your legs will look awesome from every angle.
At 40 Denier these tights are almost completely opaque becoming only a little transparent around the thighs due to fabric expansion and they seem nicely built to withstand low temperatures although they can be worn throughout Spring and Autumn as well depending on where you live. They’re available in 5 different sizes and made out of 87% Polyamid and 12% Elastane which enables them to stretch nicely. The missing 1% belongs to the cotton gusset that’s available on sizes 3 and 4.
They have a really nice smooth touch and fit and even though they belong to a low price range of products costing only around 5£ they are sturdily built, made out of good quality thread and with perfect seams.

Monika is a Polish fashion blogger that shares our passion for colorful original legwear which plays a central role in most of her daily outfits as you can see from our selection of photos below.
She describes her style simply as “crazy” and likes to constantly remix her wardrobe into explosions of originality inspired mostly by street fashion and urban looks. Her brand of choice is Hold Me Tights, a polish company whose tights are based on original illustrations developed specifically for them by several well known photographers, designers and jewellers.
Monika’s favourite pair of tights are the pink tights with eyes featured on one of the photos below (which indeed look completely adorable) and her two favourite fashion divas are Marilyn Monroe and the beautiful English model Agyness Deyn. Agyness has been featured on several collections by Anna Sui which coincidentally we talked about earlier on this article.
Diva Na Urlopie was started back in 2010 and has over 400 posts, all of which are really worth seeing even if your Polish is a little bit rusty, and has earned Monika quite a considerable amount of press attention and even got her invited to a local talk show which you can watch here.
Head on down to her blog and be sure to comment on your favourite looks!
We are thrilled to announce that the Pantyhose Party website was featured on the third issue of FINN Magazine in their recommended legwear websites section. They were also really kind to send us a copy of the magazine which is now a cherished item at the office and one that our guests love to flip through.
FINN Magazine is an awesome magazine for legwear enthusiasts printed in high quality glossy paper which features beautiful tasteful photographs of models in tights and also really interesting related articles.
The featured article of this month is about the American photographer Howard Chu, which was kind enough to send us two copies of his Pantyhose magazine sometime ago. It was a really interesting read which enabled us to get to know more about his personal life and the evolution of his work in the realm of legwear photography.
We took a couple of photos of the magazine but we didn’t want to spoil the best parts for you, we strongly suggest that you head on down to FINN magazine’s website and grab your copy now since it’s a limited edition and sells out really fast. Enjoy it!
