“ Brand: Matalan / Type: Socks „
The one thing about Christmastime that I love is actually the sales! I always save up money for myself to grab a few bargains and stock up on what I think that I need and this year was no different. I headed off the Matalan with a few quid with underwear and some new nightwear on my mind and I really did do very well indeed grabbing some booty! These socks usually retail at £2.00 a pair, I got them for a quid. Not much os a saving I grant you but a saving all the same and I really liked them! These are knee high socks and these just go over my knees. You could of course wear them with a skirt and the likes but at almost 39 years of age I did not buy them with that in mind and just hoped these would stay up under trousers and jeans and the likes helping me to stay a little warmer! So these are made from 60%Cotton 39%Polyamide and 1%Elastane and have a soft cotton like feel to them and they are not thick and/or bulky socks and they are fully machine washable and tumble dry safe. No size guide is given on these but I assume they fit sizes 4-7, I am a size 5 these fit me beautifully. Style wise well if you can see the photograph at the top of this page well that's them down to a t. They are long socks with a mainly beige colour to them with different sized black blobs of pattern on them giving a leopard print look to them and then the heels, toes and tops of the socks are plain black, like I say I really liked the look of these. They are easy to put on and what I like the most about these is that they don't roll down on me but stay put without cutting off my blood supply to the tops of my legs so although the tops of these are elasticated not too much so! I wash and dry my pair often and had absolutely no issues with doing so at all. Verdict: A great little buy! They do what I require from them and they are fabulous quality and even at full price they are very worth it indeed! Only available from Matalan stores.
