F***ing tights! Are there ANY tights which actually flatter?!

......or at the very least, don't give you a hideous muffin top?

I'm a reasonably slim, size 10, but for some reason, it doesn't matter what kind of tights I buy, I always end up looking wrong. I've recently bought a couple of day dresses, which I love, but as soon as I put my tights on, I have this horrible silhouette. Shapeless and bumpy. Also, I'm constantly hiking them up and folding them over at the top, in the vain hope I'll get rid of the dreaded muffin top. It works for about 10 seconds angry

Whenever I've tried the control top ones, or similar, all that happens is it's all pushed up and you just end up with a really high muffin top, as apposed to a low one confused so problem really not solved!

So, do flattering tights really exist? If so, please point me in the right direction.

Thank you!

Thanks for recommending the bamboo tights - I've been looking for dark brown knitted tights for ages! I order some online and picked them up today - they are perfect!

The best tights come up to my bra line blush Stay up better and no risk of muffin top. No-one else can see how high they are..

Til, do you know if you can get hold ups thicker than 40 d?

Thanks for that Fractured. Oh and Til, which suspender belt is it from Ann Summers? Presuming they do quite a few. The one you have, does it sit high or low on your hips? If you don't mind me asking grin

You need these: http://www.figleaves.com/uk/product/spx-167/70-denier-tight-end-high-waisted-tights/

They ate fabulous. I discovered them 3 years ago and have worn them every winter since.

They are expensive but they last, and I wear them nearly every day.

Definitely knickers on top to stop them falling down grin
