XeLence

I was contacted recently and asked if i wanted to review Charnos XeLence tights. They are specially designed to fit up to a size 32 and have a specially designed panel on the thigh area to stop chafing which i always a good thing!

I'm not going to lie i was a little sceptical but I'm always looking for new tights that fit well and are comfortable. I was sent the tights in medium shape which is sizes 22-26 and do you know what? They are a dream, true to size and super soft. They are seriously great tights!

I usually have to size up in tights and then sometimes even the 28-32 don't fit, there is nothing worse than putting tights on only for them to stop at your knees, or they rip as you try to put them on. This has happened to me on more occasions than i can count which leaves me annoyed and out of pocket.

Both the black and nude tights are 15 denier so they are really light and you don't feel like you are wearing anything. The panels over the thighs are slightly thicker and make them really comfortable to wear.

The tights have a really soft waist band and it doesn't dig into your skin like other tights that I've had before. The nude tights are a good match for my skin, i was worried they might end up being an overly tanned colour but they are really great .

These tights are £7 and for the quality and fit they are so worth it! The have 3 size ranges available:
Light shape - 16-20
Medium shape 22-26
Full shape 28-32
These are true to size i usually wear a 22/24 on the bottom and these tights fit me and would easily fit me at a size or two bigger. There are other styles available in the range including 50 denier,spot print and knee highs! 
The range will be released soon and i for one can't wait to get my hands on some of the other styles especially the spot ones which are super cute and i might even give some knee highs a go!
Thanks to Charnos for sending me the tights to review its always great to find a product that actually does what it says on the tin!
XOXO

  1. I've always wondered if longline bras are comfortable on curvy girls.. What are they like when you sit down? I'd be worried it would cut into me.
    Anyway, I love your tattoos and your blog :)

  3. I love the underwear you're wearing; very pretty! Tights have to be the hardest item of clothing to shop for! I often find them to be too short for me. The only ones I've found that work for me are Evans' in a size 2. Everything else either stops mid-thigh or come up tiny! These pairs look pretty damn good! xx

  6. Look at you, you sexy lady! The tights look really good too! I might have to invest in a couple of pairs, I'm finding standard tights a bit too tight nowadays

  8. I LOVE the underwear! Where's it from?
    I'm definitely going to have to give these tights a try! The best I've found is the Curves range by Pretty Polly. I find tights ALWAYS slip off me, for some reason..fingers crossed these might be different!
