On third pregnancy and rediscovering why I hate maternity tights, 2 different brands so far tried and with both I have ended up with the gusset falling down to my knees by the end of the day! I have tried sizing up but they are even worse. So anyone found any that stay up?

H&M for me too.

Im still wearing a year after dd, as they are so so comfy and fit with no bump too!

Am in shock - am wearing a pair from Vertbaudet today which seem to be staying up so far...

Have been to H&M and got some of their tights to try out too.

I've got a pair of m&s ones and they're at nightmare. spend all day pulling them back up!

sainburys are really good if you've got a bump. I've got three pairs and am now 33 weeks.

H&m although I did find they were quite long on me - still did the job though. Hold ups just fell down...tried those for a wedding and ended up waddling to a h&m in search of tights as the darn things gradually fell down my legs in a Nora batty fashion - not pretty.

Don't wear them a lot but my M&S ones have been fine.

Radiator1234 Thu 28-Feb-13 11:26:13

Boots and h+m. Both inexpensive too.

Thanks all - am going to give H&M Mama a go. I used hold ups last time round but hate the bulges of fat you get at the top (or maybe its just me)...

I got mother care tights and I'm having problems with getting them to stay up. I thought it might be because I machine washed them not hand wash.
I'm going to try the h&m mama ones after reading these posts.

Mothercare are terrible, my usual size are round my knees within an hour. Size smaller are marginally better

BarmeeMarmee Thu 28-Feb-13 07:47:33

Boots stayed up for me although I will admit I didn't wear them a huge amount.

Coleminer Thu 28-Feb-13 07:00:24

Boots ones were best for me, I got a bigger size though

Dh2812 Thu 28-Feb-13 06:45:53

Debenhams. they have stayed up so far.

TeaOperated Thu 28-Feb-13 06:41:27

H&M mama and mothercare both brilliant for me - and I'm both tall and curvy, which is something tights manufacturers don't normally allow for. Both still staying up - and providing light bump support - at 36 weeks.

Another vote for hold ups here - and you can wear them post pg as well.

MisselthwaiteManor Thu 28-Feb-13 05:42:37

Another fan of H&M ones here. I've been wearing them since the first hint of a bump and they haven't fallen down.

ChairmanWow Thu 28-Feb-13 05:24:55

Another vote for Mothercare. Also Blooming Marvellous.

I have two pairs and both stay up - mothercare and M&S. The mothercare ones are more comfy though, and they also withstood me taking a flying fall in them and grazing my knee (but somehow they didn't rip or ladder).

helebear Wed 27-Feb-13 22:30:26

I have taken to wearing a pair of knickers on top of my(h&m and m&s) maternity tights to keep them up as I'm so sick of ending up with the crotch of my tights by my knees!

Springforward Wed 27-Feb-13 22:29:00

Mothercare ones are holding up well at 26 weeks here.

happyjustobeme Wed 27-Feb-13 22:20:43

I found h and m to be brilliant all the way through to term. About £8 a pair I think.

LadyMetroland Wed 27-Feb-13 22:18:41

Jojo ones fall down and waistband/bumpband doesn't come high enough

M&s similar but marginally better. Always out of stock though (like everything decent in Marks and Spencer)

I wear pg leggings from boden which are like really thick tights but without feet, obviously. Only thing is I only have one pair and can't justify expense of buying more for such a short time.

Havingkittens Wed 27-Feb-13 22:12:17

I have some knitted Noppies ones from Pretty Pregnant which are only just starting to fall down occasionally at 34 weeks (I've had them since about 14 weeks).

AmandaPayne Wed 27-Feb-13 21:15:40

Yup, I did hold ups. You can even get opaque ones if you dig about.

Zara1984 Wed 27-Feb-13 21:14:57

H&M Mama and Eastern European ones off eBay

All others were saggy rubbish.

Until you get a big bump the M&S medium support ones are good.
