Tights- a moan

27 weeks and tights are truly my nemesis. It is at least a 5 minute wrestle to get them on, only to find the crotch is too low then when I pull them up, 9 times out of 10 I end up ripping them and have to start all over again much to the amusement of DH hmm

1) get bigger size

2) wear pants of the same colour over the outside superman style to keep up. Black tights with black pants over outside were lifesaving

Yep! I agree and I have 7 more weeks of work to battle through yet!

Artandco thanks but already in the larger size and not much difference. Sock are just as bad!

Hold ups?

ASOS maternity tights are amazing. They have a rubber bit (like in hold ups) and it actually works. I've tried a few brands and Asia are by far the best. I think £6 a pair, so not too bad on price.

Defo get a bigger size
I have tried sooo many different pairs now, asda ones weirdly were the best

Thanks for the advice ladies! I'll try a few other options. Mothercare were ok but quite thick yet seemed to ladder/ rip really easily!

Also just get leggings instead the next few weeks. I often wore black leggings with boots under dresses later.

You can buy maternity tights from m&s which are really good

H&M sell maternity tights too.

I found the ASOS ones a bit rubbish - they kept falling down! Today I'm wearing M&S extra large tights and they seem to be doing the trick (and not baggy either).

I found M&S ones brilliant.

H&M maternity tights are the bees bollocks.

You are right, maternity tights are a joke: overpriced and not fit for purpose.

I hated H & M and Mothercare ones. In the end I gave up and just wore black leggings.
