Q & As


John Lewis Barely There Hold-Ups 2.7 5 7 7
Absolutely fantastic These do what is says on the packet , every time I wear them people don't believe I am wearing hold ups because they make your legs look amazing as though you have a great sun tan. Don't ever discontinue them, let me know before hand and I will buy all your stock, can't live without them 18 June 2014
Elastic gone after one wear I am utterly disappointed with this purchase. The tops of the holdups have lost the elasticity after just one wear. Although they are still wearable because the the adhesive band sticks the tops look awful - lose and baggy. I expect better quality from JL own brand. 18 April 2014
Barely ather Hold-Ups These are an excellent product, very comfortable to wear and look great on as there are very fine. I am a size 14/16 and 5'7" and often find hold-ups a problem as they are either too narrow and roll down or too tight and cut into the leg. Not these the fit is fantastic and can be worn all day without worrying that they will fall down or that they will be uncomfortable 15 April 2014
Not comfortable I was hoping these might be the product to replace the presumably discontinued John Lewis Women Ladder Resist Smooth 10 denier nylon/ lycra hold ups which really are wonderful and the nearest thing to silk without actually buying silk ( I have both so I can gauge this rather well) that I have been able to find. These are not in the same league..they have a much rougher, crepier feel and I won't buy any more of them. 14 April 2014
Awful product - doesn't hold up and rip easily - very disappointing I've bought a few pairs of hold ups from John Lewis, and they either tear very quickly when putting them on, or unlike their name suggests, hold up. I had a very embarrassing moment where one of the new holds started falling down on my first wear whilst I was on my way to a meeting and I had to go into JL Reading to explain the circumstances and they kindly replaced them free of charge. I appreciate that subject to skin care creams the holds ups may not hold up. however I have not changed my beauty routine and the holds ups in the past from JL and now new ones from Marks & Spencers did and do a much better job. 28 March 2014
Nice Holdups I really like the colour of these and they are nice and sheer you hardly look like you have anything on your legs however I do have problems keeping them up. I thought it was because my legs are quite thin but I have just noticed review from someone who has the same problem 12 March 2014
They didn't stay up I wore a pair of these last night. They were brand new but were probably bought a few months ago. Having said that I didn't expect them to keep slipping and by the end of the evening they were not staying up at all. Would not buy them again. 19 January 2014
