I v kindly received the *February 2018 Gambettes Box last week to try, my first box. I was delighted when I was approached by the company as was so disappointed last year when My Little Box, which is connected to the Gambettes box (French box), decided to stop shipping their boxes to the UK as just loved receiving that box each month.
The Gambettes Box is a subscription service; delivery of two surprise pairs of quality tights to your door every month. Box costs £13.90 a month (inclusive of international shipping), you can pause / cancel your subscription at any time and currently if you decide to sign up for your first box you also get the option to sign up to their newsletter as well to enable you to get 20% off your box. When you sign up you just need to select your size and then your first Gambettes Box should arrive within 3 weeks. After that, you should receive your Boxes between the 15th and the 25th of each month.
From Autumn through spring, the Gambettes Box will arrive in your letter / mailbox every month with two surprise pairs of tights. In summer, when bare legs are in season, Gambettes enter into vacation mode and stop your shipments till autumn. They also state the following:
- The deal: two to three times a year, they will send us a super high-quality, super-opaque pair of tights in classic black. The rest of the time, they will send us something a tad more original.
- Most of the pairs we get will come in black. Occasionally, they will also collaborate with big name designers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Inès de la Fressange, and Courrèges. Love the sound of this.
- Come rosé season (i.e. June through August) when it’s too hot for tights, they will hit ‘pause’ on our subscription and stop taking out payments until September.
It also states within the Terms & Conditions that some months, the Subscriber may receive a swimsuit and / or other textile products, at the same price as his/her current subscription instead of the regular monthly 2 pairs of tights, which sounds super exciting.

I was really excited to receive my first box as I love all different types of tights but especially different versions of black ones – as just so versatile.
Everything comes in a cardboard exterior illustrated box with ‘Gambettes Box’ embossed on it in red writing and inside there are three cards; an information card and two lovely illustrated cards for February.
The following two pairs of tights are included this month:
Black Ajoure Patterned Tights – 50D – 90% Polyamide & 10% Elastane (made in Italy): – love this diamond style pattern as this just adds that little bit extra and also feel good as well. Have not got a chance to wear yet but when I do will include a photo below.
‘Jane’ Plain Plum Tights in 60 D – 93% Polyamide & 7% Elastane (made in Italy): – love this colour and 60D are usually look lasting as well. These would be perfect with so many outfits. Could be worn with so much and any colour i.e. Navy, Grey, Brown, Black etc. Again have not got a chance yet to wear but feel so good really silky feeling.
V impressed with this box, quality of items and packaging – I think it is a great idea as it is something different as although love receiving beauty subscription boxes there are not that many subscription boxes offering accessory / fashion items. Perfect box for me as I love wearing tights in the colder weather and with our climate that covers a lot of months – one pair of 50D/60D high quality tights in for example Marks and Spencer costs approx. £6-£8, sometimes more anyway. I would definitely recommend checking out or subscribing if you can especially if you love tights, want to discover even more or just want to try a different type of subscription service. If you do sign up using my link thank you in advance.
Look forward to any comments you may have – have you tried or heard about this subscription service before? Also if you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot. Will have more posts up tomorrow and / or beginning of the week.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Thank you and take care.
