A few years back my friend Julia sent me a package from Ukraine. It contained many cool souvenirs and of course, knowing how much I’m into it, she sent 2 pairs of tights.
In my opinion, both styles are quite rare. I’ve seen beige back seam tights before with a black seam and with a beige seam, but never a darker shade like this, especially with a reinforced toe.
Polka dots are common, but to find them in grey is not. To my surprise both styles turned out to be quite durable.
If you are wondering when these photos were taken, I will surprise you – just about 2 days ago! Yes, Calgary still has snow falling from time to time. It is almost March and I still didn’t pack away my winter jackets.
Here are photos of the packages. Giulia brand and Duve brand.
You probably already saw my posts on Facebook and Twitter, but for those who didn’t, here are some photos of me wearing seamless OMSA Superlativa 20 pantyhose in caramello shade at a spa in Banff, inside of the Banff Springs Fairmont hotel. It was wonderful!
This is one of those moments when you don’t recognize what’s on the legs because it looks so different on the package. When my cousin put it on, I wondered where she got it from because it looked like nothing that I remembered giving her.
Don’t you think it looks quite different from the photo on the cover?
These are Maloria 40 den by Fiore. You can find them in the shop section.
Here are some more photos of me from the day when I took some photos outside with my cousin. I am wearing Mirona by Fiore, 40 den tights.
They have a sheer band on the thigh. I didn’t actually expect that, on the cover photo it looks like the sock part is thicker and the top part is sheer, but in reality it turned out to be only a sheer band. I think it looks kind of cool, like a peek-a-boo effect.
If you like it, have a look here – Mirona by Fiore. This blog is supported by the shop section.
Do you agree? These pantyhose photograph so well. I think they look much better on the legs than they look on the package cover. These are Altea by Fiore.
I put it on, started to play in front of the camera, and didn’t want to stop. Sexy and flirty, this print looks so cool! I just loved it. It is sheer to waist with a t-top, cotton gusset, and invisibly reinforced toe.
Heila is one of the limited editions by Fiore, no longer produced. I like styles like that with a subtle pattern and a t-top. I wore these tights around the house and then headed for a walk outside, wearing a pair of flats and a jean skirt.
Just for the photos, I put a pair of orange heels to look more like the model on the package of the tights.
I personally think that this kind of pattern at the back would look best with some form of a gothic outfit. I’d totally wear that to a heavy metal concert. How would you wear something like that?

Yesterday I took advantage of the warm weather and wore these shiny black pantyhose outdoors! These are Idalia by Fiore. They seem to go with just about any outfit.
Even though they are 20 den, I’d say that they feel a little thicker, as if they were 30 den or so. In a way it works to my advantage because I am not as afraid to wear it at home, since very sheer yarn may get damaged easily. As you see from a photo below, I wear it with a house robe (my favourite silky one) over it.
Do you like black shiny pantyhose? According to a woman who works for a hosiery manufacturer, shiny pantyhose were once very much in fashion, but no longer. I had a fashion blogger friend too who would ask only for matte and couldn’t state even a slightest hint of shine. Perhaps it could be that it’s not the best thing for fuller legs.
However, I’d say that I get the most comments when I actually do wear a shiny style rather than matte. I think that the shinier it is, the better!
Julia, one of the ladies who helps with this blog, sent these photos. She went for a walk wearing Poema pantyhose by Fiore and black suede shoes with red soles. How sexy and flirty!
I am wearing Wolford stockings – Eyla 8 den. These are these ones that I got on my trip to Los Angeles. I went to Wolford on Rodeo drive and it was a really nice experience. I’ll write a proper review later here for you.
I am wearing a Marylin Monroe shirt that I got that day, red swimsuit bikini, and zebra print shoes. I wish I’d have another model to have a pillow fight with.
And later secretly posing in the hallway of the hotel, late at night, so no one saw me. That was quite a thrill.
Backseam is one of the toughest styles to photograph since the seams shift. These are almost perfect, I know how hard it is to keep it straight.
This pretty blogger did a photoshoot for Fiore hosiery in Gina lurex backseam tights. I like how she combined it with the theme of make up, as pantyhose are too in a way make up for the legs.
If you like these and would like to get it, these tights are available at the shop section – Gina lurex backseam tights.
