Sheers that don’t suck!

 

Trying to find hosiery that fit properly are one of the most frustrating things a petite person can shop for. 

Often I end up having to pull them up to my armpits to ensure that they 

don’t sag at the bottom avoiding that Elephant-ankle look…..that’s just not the sexiest or most comfortable look! :/Now, add on the fact that your a larger bodied plus-sized petite person … ugh!!!  

So I was ecstatic to find that Sheertex not only had sizing with my height, they also designed cute patterned sheers with my body type/body size in mind.

My excitement grew even more when I found out that they also promised to be furry friend proof —they claim to be indestructible!

Sheertex – the world’s toughest pantyhose.

The fit was perfect and they were one of the most comfortable hosieries that I have ever worn. I wasn’t counting the hours down to when I could tear them off and get into my comfy clothes — my Sheertex *were* comfy clothes!

 

 

I wore my Sheertex for a full day at the office and walking the pups to test them out.

Visit me on Instagram to see how they fit on me with their thick waistband.

😉 😉 😉

The true test would come with the dogs.

I have two furry pals that can be very loving. That’s awesome, but they tend to be hard on my closest when they attempt their daily climb of Mount Mommy.

More than one pair of hosiery has met an untimely death at the claws of Max the Maniac  or Frodo the Frightful.

My pups are lovely, but they are destructive doggies when it comes to hosiery…sigh. 

 

 

Sheertex proved to be their foil!!!

I’m wearing the Polka-Dot Sheers and as you can see they held up to the riggers of both puppies perfectly.

If you are a someone who occasionally gets climbed by animals or has a tendency to catch hosier on desks, nails, chairs, shoes, shrubbery, whatevs …nearly immediately upon putting on a new pair of pantyhose…. then say hello to Sheertex and hosiery that doesn’t suck!

SONSEE Woman – Product Review

The easiest way to make your Summer pieces more Fall/Winter appropriate isn’t to ditch them altogether, but to come up with new ways to wear them.

I picked up this dress from BIGDeal Toronto‘s pop-up sale.

I picked up this sheer, pleated, sleeveless dress from BIGDeal Toronto’s pop-up sale a few months ago,  and was determined to transition it for Fall/Winter wear.  (Click here for other ideas to transition summer into winter outfits.)

Transitioning this into a Fall/Winter outfit required hosiery and a sweater.  I love the way adding tights to dresses and skirts easily give them a whole new look.

Personally, I think tights give my outfit a chic, sophisticated, lady-like look.  Lucky for me Sonsee Woman sent me two packs of tights to review, which do just that! 🙂

Sonsee sizes come in Gorgeous (14-16), Flawless (18-20), Stunning (22-24) and Radiant (26-28).

Unlike shape-wear – Sonsee is both comfortable & smoothing with broad ranges in sizing, products and seasonal colours. I was sent “Shadow” – a solid grey colour shown in these pictures, and “Black” which I’m yet to wear (click here to see how I’d wear them).

SONSEE WOMAN HOSIERY

I have to say, I’ve become ever dependent on buying cheap hose from the Dollarstore.  Being petite (aka short) their ‘queen size’ seems to do the job, but these are only really good for one-time wear.

These Sonsee tights were such a nice change in terms of fabric quality, with a fabulous “sheer:thickness ratio”.  Meaning I didn’t have to fear ripping them as I rolled them up my leg.  They’ve got an anti-roll waistband which allows you to wear them high or low on the waist with comfort.  And there’s extra reinforcement at the thighs for greater durability – and “Lighting & Thunder” – my loving nickname for MY thighs –  really appreciate that! 😉

SONSEE WOMAN

Since I wear a size 18 in clothes, I ordered my Sonsee tights in size Flawless (18-20).  Being petite, this size was a bit too big on me.  Next time I’d order a size smaller to avoid extra length and scrunching at my ankles, as you can see in the close up shots in the pics above.

SONSEE WOMAN

To up the sophisticated vibe of this outfit, I added my navy statement necklace & earring set from LOFT and covered up my arms with a simple v-neck grey cardi from Old Navy.

You really do get what you pay for.  These Sonsee hose transitions this Summer dress  perfectly into sophisticated chic Winter wear, don’t you think?
