I'm back to work on this week (after 15 years but that's a whole other thread grin)

I've got some work wear sorted out but I would like to get organised and get some nude leg wear ready for when I need it.

I'm out of touch with hard wearing but great looking tights etc.
Any recommendations please? TIA

I've been buying house of Fraser own brand (linea) hold ups this summer. The matte ones are very comfortable, hold their shape well and look like skin but better. I can't pretend they are durable though. I've had maybe half a dozen wears out of each pair. But I'm not sure you can expect better from 10 denier- it's just an ongoing expense you have to swallow.

I bought some tights from next recently - good quality, waist band doesn't roll and range of skin tones

You cannot beat Marks and Spencer hold-ups

Wolfords for hosiery every time

I wear M&S hold ups.

You can get some for ??5 for 2 pairs but recently I found that the narrow top was making a dent in my leg that could be seen under my skirt blush Thighs must have got chubbier...

So I upgraded to the next cheapest, which are no more durable but have a wide lacy top.

These vs these.

Not sure why pound signs aren't working for me tonight.

Thanks guys. I might indulge in one pair of Wolfords and see how well they last compared to a M&S pair and a Next pair.
Doobigetta, nothing personal, I just don't have a House of Frazer close by [smile ]

I am withdrawing my recommendation anyway. One of the bastard things decided to fall down on me at lunchtime today, I had to hopshuffle all the way back to the office clutching it, attempt to dive into the disabled toilet to hoik it up while it was flapping around my knee, find the toilet was occupied, give up and hoik it up where I was standing, put a finger through it creating a massive ladder, and then realise that me, my laddered hold-up and most of my knickers were on view for everyone in reception to see. NOT GOOD, House of Fraser. Not good.
I'm going into black opaque tights from Monday.
