“ Brand: Mint Velvet / Type: Leggings „
Leggings.....well you either tend to love them or hate them and me personally I love them! I love the fact I can mix and match other clothing with them with real ease, candress them up or down depending on my mood and I own stacks of them because I find that unlike jeans and things I don't have to iron them (which is always a bonus I say lol!).
I spotted these from Kay & Co (formally Kays home shopping) and they are either available to order from the Kay & Co Catalogue or from there website which is www.kay&co.com (which is there home shopping site).
These come in sizes s,m.l, only in a very deep, dark sort of matt black and have a very wide ridgid waisteband to the top of them which isn't all that flexible but does hold the leggings up well. Plain in style these are made from 95% cotton, 5% elastane and are fully machine washable and tumble drier safe. I never have to iron mine however that comes down to personal preference of course.
These are slightly gathered at the seams to the outsides of the legs giving a ruch effect. Not too gathered this effect simply gives a nice look to the otherwise plain leggings and these are rather skin tight but comfortable all at the same time.
I have found these to wash with no issues at all, they don't go out of shape after a few hours of wearing them but are not as soft as many pairs of leggings I own and you do have to consider do you want a deep panelled waisteband that almost holds your tummy in!
I'm 5.9 these are a good length on me but due to the ruching you can seem to adjust them to fit the length of your leg (just have more or less of the effect - ruching really). I like these smart leggings a lot and at £25.00 a pair they are not as cheap as alot that I own but I keep these as best and they keep so nice with no issues at all!
Now these only come in small, medium and large and no guide is given anywhere on the Kay & Co site to what sizes they equate to. I think a small is around an 8, a medium a size 10/12 and large 14/16 though this is just guesswork on my part to be entirely honest. I have to medium sized pair and I am a size 10 and they fit me beautifully!
