Trasparenze Platino from Stockingirl

Hello Everyone,

I finally wore the Trasparenze Platino tights sent to me by Stockingirl and I have to say they are really fun and unique! They are a floral pattern with the with the pattern starting at the toes and running all the way up the legs.  When putting them on it feels as though the pattern is continuous and is stitched into the fabric during the manufacturing process.  The feel very soft and you can feel the pattern on the outside of the legs when you touch the tights.  I am not quite sure of the denier as it did not say on the packaging, but would guess they are maybe 50 denier.  I noticed at the top of my thighs, the fabric stretched a little bit more and was thus sheerer.  Overall, I think they are a great pair of tights and very comfortable to wear, which is what I would expect from a brand like Trasparenze which I truly love!  They have some bright colors on them which really make the legs stand out with the floral pattern also!

Here is how I styled them:







 I want to thank Stockingirl very much for sending me these tights to review!  While they did send me these tights to review, the review is still my own!

Have a good one,

Jonathan

I'm back in the saddle again

Hello Everyone,

It has been quite a long time since my last post, and a lot has happened since then.  I finally decided to get back into doing reviews of tights and am so excited that the wonderful people at Stockingirl sent me tights to review and I really want to thank them for their generosity!

I would like to start out by sharing more about them and their business. I will be quoting them from the contact I have had with them.  "Stockingirl Leg Wear is the official representative and distributer for Trasparenze leg wear in the USA. We have just begun the relationship this summer. 

To introduce our company, we are a private label company that also has our own brand, Stockingirl which is mostly made in France. We sell to stores, and on the internet, as stockingirl.com. We have been in business for over 18 years. We have known Trasparenze for many years from our trips to Italy, looking for factories to make Stockingirl Leg Wear."
The first pair I will be reviewing is a style by the Italian brand Trasparenze, which I truly love!  They make amazing and beautiful patterns!  The style is called Varnasi, and the color is called Zucchero which when i looked it up appears to mean Sugar in Italian.  This makes perfect sense as it looks like the tights are dusted with sugar which I think makes such a cool effect!  They felt very nice on the skin, I will say they are not as smooth as some other styles of Trasparenze tights, but they were not itchy or uncomfortable in any way at all!  I could easily wear them for extended periods of time with no issues what so ever!  After looking at the packaging, I see no mention of what the denier of these tights is.  If I would have to guess, I would say they are 50-60 denier as they seem to provide really good coverage on the legs, but don't seem to be as thick as some basic tights can be.  I really love them so much as they really draw attention to the legs!  I cannot thank Stockingirl enough.
Here is how I styled them:












 I hope you enjoyed the post, and would love to hear your thoughts on the outfit and the tights!

While Stockingirl did send me these tights to review, the review is still my own. 

I have to make sure to thank my photographer for all the great photos as there is no way I could take such great photos of my outfits all by myself!
