Dons schoolgirl voice "OMG Sock Dreams is the shiznit". I am looking at their website and am about to explode with excitement. Seriously it's not good to get this excited about leg warmers for gods sake!

For tights I just got a pair from Legs Beautiful and they sucked so bad, not even on for a day and there is a big hole in the freaking crotch. Either it was the tights or I have a toxic crotch.
Some tights were like $50. Are you kidding me? It's not like you can take them back if they get holey.

They felt fine on my waist, but they only come in two sizes, so maybe I'm lucky they fit me. I'm going to buy the legging, because I think these will be fab for winter!

!! fleece lined?!

Yep. They are super soft, but not super warm. I did go back and get 1 more pair of tights and 2 pairs of leggings, as they were on sale (reg. price $11.99). I figure I will just double them up for the winter. One pair will be perfect for spring and fall temperatures here, though.

Yeah I have two pairs like this! They are good otherwise. I wear underwear over the top as well to try and keep them up.

Oh, I never thought of this! Does it work? I'm going to try it!

So I need to wear a cape and skip the skirt? Or, I could just pin my skirt to the top of my shirt and wear it as a cape. Thanks, CNA, I'm ready to get dressed and leave the house now!

I just stocked up on tights yesterday and it was oh so necessary. I only owned black, navy, and brown and about half up them were ripped...which, I mean, is sometimes nice but I need to look presentable occasionally!

I've been searching for the perfect garter belt for a little over a month and fork those things are expensive. Found this one at Topshop for £8 though, so I'm happy.

I picked up a few cheaps, plain black hold ups for them at Waitrose

I also bought these to make me feel sassy

And these to make me feel comfy

So I bought tights from We Love Colors, they arrived today (fast shipping!) and I tried them on....LOVE. I got the plus size ones and for once, I feel comfortable in tights! They are soooo stretchy and soft. I won't be able to go back to cheapo tights.

i've started wearing actual suspenders under my clothes to hold my heavy tights up, because a few times i was out walking and they wound up almost around my ankles. i don't know what the deal is. but the suspenders work beautifully. 50 cents at goodwill!

QUESTION.

I'm looking for some thick, jersey-type-material, opaque (like...will not be able to see a large tattoo) leggings and tights like the ones American Apparel makes...but not American Apparel. But still made in America. Any ideas?

Have you tried Maggie's Organic cotton tights? They are super thick and cozy.

perfect! I have a pair of patterned tights from them, but didn't think that they might have jersey tights. Cheaper than AA too. Only 3 colors though...so I'll need to look elsewhere for other colors.

The carol leggings made by you, in America! These take 45 minutes plus the time to shop for the fabric and pre-treat it. I suggest ebay for super cheap fabric. You can probably find bamboo jersey with lycra in it for $9 a yard and no matter what your size is you only need 1.1-1.25 yards of fabric to make the carol leggings.

fashion major = no time to actually make clothes for yourself! I have sooooooo much jersey fabric and in quite a few colors too but I can never find the time. maybe in two years, haha.

I finally found tights that aren't too tight around the top! They were really expensive but I'm never buying cheap tights again. I got them in turquoise but now I want loads of other colours AND they're 80 denier so they're actually warm & probably hard to ladder.

I think you really need to invest in somewhat expensive tights to get them to fit properly, I've never had good luck with any cheap tights I've bought unfortunately. Those look really great!

I also found some great tights that don't dig into my waist! They are Calvin Klein; I picked them out because I liked the color, but the waist doesn't bind at all! I think they were "Modern Comfort" ones? Either way, it said on the package it had a control top and a wide waist band, which I both took to mean they'd be uncomfortable, but I loved the color--I'm so glad I got them, because the waist is the most comfortable of any tights I own.

They are reasonably priced, too (I got them at Macy's for ~$15).

Have any of you tried Hue tights? What do you think?

I used to be a big fan of Hue when they sold something called "sweater tights" but now I think their only sweater tights are the cable-patterned type which are ok (but I like plain better.) Anyway I had several pairs and they were so comfy and warm but did get a bit stretched out due to high cotton content, like they could've been pulled all the way up over my boobs. I still buy their opaque tights because they are relatively cheap at places here like Daffy's, and decent quality.

Ha, I always think it's so hilarious when waists do this!

Was the waist particularly binding? I just had to return a pair of (steve madden) tights because even though they were supposedly my size, they felt like were trying to cut me in half.
