Review: Fogal Ivette Leggings

      I was going through my reviews to find that I only have two on leggings.  That was interesting because I used to wear leggings more often than tights.  I wore them when I dance, as leggings provide warmth during the winter while leaving the soles intact.  I still go dancing, and hope I could do the same.  So I picked up a couple pairs during the summer sale.  One of which, is the Ivette leggings by Fogal.

Review: Falke Net Women Tights

      I was watching a live broadcast featuring Gerbe patterned tights.  One of the items that caught my attention was the Sevilla Fishnet.  It has a net appearance at close range, but turns into sheer look as you walk further away from it.  “That is pure magic!” I said to myself, and I must get one.  I eventually bought the Sevilla, as well as a box of fishnet and open-knit tights.  We are not going to look at the Sevilla just yet, but another fishnet tights that has a similar characteristic – the Nets Women Tights by Falke.

Gossip: You get what you pay for

      In a recent episode, the Swiss TV programme «Kassensturz» had 10 pairs of tights tested in a laboratory.  These 20 denier sheer tights are from 10 different brands, among them well-known ones like Falke, Fogal, Kunert and Wolford.  They were rated for fit, abrasion, scrub resistance, run vulnerability and durability against machine wash.  Wolford Satin Touch 20 came top in the rating, followed by a tie among Falke Pure Matt 20, Fogal Caresse and Kunert Satin Look Transparent.  What really interests me is the conclusion they made from the test.
