Sorry and not sorry that I didn’t blog yesterday. I had a few toddlers sick with some viral issues and I wanted to spend some of the day catching up on other blogs, cleaning of the house, spend time with sick and well kids and do some online shopping with gift codes and cards I had been meaning to spend (one of the perks of being a fashion blogger, the incentives of compensation via gift cards sometimes), more on what I bought on Fridays post. Today you are getting a review unlike ones I have done before.
I think I am the worst at finding pantyhose that fit me just right as normally they don’t ride up like I want them too or end up the wrong color against my skin tone. Until recently when I got the opportunity to try some pantyhose from Fiore Stockings Direct USA. Fiore Stockings Direct USA is a warehouse and distributor in the US that imports Fiore stockings from Poland and makes it easier for people within the United States to have access to this lovely brand of stockings without having to pay so much on shipping from the Europe based company that produces four distinct lines of Nylon and hosiery to meet every womans needs or fantasies.
The lines of pantyhose or stockings produced by Fiore include classic, Golden line, Elite or Exclusive and Obsession (read about styles and background of the lines here). The pair that was sent to me is called the Taya Patterned Tights and these come from the Golden line or the fashionable and sensuous line of pantyhose of Fiore.
To be honest when I saw the package (above) I was a little shocked as I didn’t know how to style these patterned tights while remaining modest. The tights pattern is a little more sensual or sexy for wearing and uncomfortable for me to flaunt. My hubby on the other hand was in love with them and I had him help me choose the outfit. He came up with this:
Now before you think we went clubbing or something we did not (real fact: we have never went clubbing in our lives). In fact he had me try this outfit with tights on at 1 in the morning at our house while we had some insomnia and were looking for ways to style these lovelies for the sake of this review. This photo above just gives you an idea of what the hose could be styled with for a night out, date or teaser for the hubby. I also apologize in advance for a night photo and a not so good one at that but my camera was acting up and it was about to rain.

I love the pattern on these tights but I was conscious about the cut off of the pattern as the pattern cuts off at the thigh so wearing short skirts wouldn’t be modest (to me). I think I would have enjoyed the tights more if the pattern continued throughout the tights and not cut off. I do think I will wear them underneath longer skirts or midi skirts once the weather gets cooler.
For the overall fit and wear of the tights I was pleased with how the band at the top went up past my abdomen and there was no riding down what so ever. I also like that these were thin and comfortable as I barely noticed I was wearing tights and there was no tightness. Putting them on was easy, breezy! Once again, I didn’t care for the cut off of the pattern as this was uncomfortable to me or I didn’t know how to best style it to make the look modest.
I was very satisfied by Fiore though and would love to try a solid pattern free pair of tights in the near future from their lines.
Have you tried Fiore?
