Chel said that these thigh highs have a cute bow on the side and a really ornate pattern under the band.  She would be happy to wear them under her wedding dress and was very impressed at the price – “they are a good price for a special occasion”.  She liked that they were “very soft and light to the touch”, stating that you can feel the pattern slightly on the legs, which still feels “nice and smooth”.
