Review: Heist The Thirty Tights

       To strive for a more comfortable waistband has been a goal for many hosiery makers.  One of the ways to achieve such is to increase the width of the waistband.  By increasing the covering area of the body, the band can be made with softer materials and with less tension.  However, a poor design can simply result a roll or fall down, which does the opposite of providing comfortableness.  In a previous review, we looked at the Fifty tights by Heist, which is characterised by seamless design and a wide waistband that doesn’t roll or fall down.  This time, we will examine another style by Heist, with the option of even wider waistband.  Scroll down when you are ready.

Review: Snug Deodorant Footlets

       In contrast to the opaque tights and leg warmers advertised on the internet as an implication of freezing winter, December here has been characterised by the scorching sun.  High-denier tights are stored away, while ultra sheer tights, knee-highs, socks and footlets receives the most welcome.  To meet the change, I would like to review something different, something very much represents the summer – footlets.
