Thanks for the tip smile

Do you feel like Superman??

I need to know this tip!!! I spent most of Friday hoiking up my tights, much to the amusement of my TA i'm not subtle!

Did you put your pants on over your tights?

ExplodingCarrots Mon 15-Feb-16 19:14:13

I usually put my Magic pants over tights. Nothing moves , it's great.

Sorry I didn't say it, it's just wear pants over your tights
Almost I'm a teacher too and I have to subtly pull them up all the time but a day of walking round today and no honking!

What if you bend over and everyone can see your superman?

I always did this at school. PE knickers over tights. I thought everyone did it!

ToastMakesMeHappy Mon 15-Feb-16 19:17:04

Why have I never heard of this. If this works I will be truly greatful of you all!

Pointlessfan Mon 15-Feb-16 19:17:38

I did that at school but it has never occurred to me as am adult, I am always hoiking my tights. Thanks for the top tip!

Do you think this would work for my gravitationally overwhelmed maternity jeans? (2 pairs, neither stay up. They're almost down to my knees going between the living room and kitchen).

IndomitabIe Mon 15-Feb-16 19:19:40

Let's face it, I can't look any more ridiculous.

Cerseirys Mon 15-Feb-16 19:19:44

I always do this but really, shouldn't tights manufacturers actually do something to address the problem? I don't think I've ever worn a pair of tights where the crotch didn't slowly migrate south!

Maternity jeans are AWFUL.

I am so glad I'm unlikely to need them ever again.

originalmavis how short are your skirts?!

ParcelP Mon 15-Feb-16 19:26:47

However if you do want to go all out on the superman-ing

PotOfYoghurt Mon 15-Feb-16 19:28:12

When I do that my knickers roll down and I get a droopy gusset with a pant-croissant above it.

What am I doing wrong?

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Mon 15-Feb-16 19:30:05

Just buy decent tights.

Ime m&s don't budge, tesco are shit, asda somewhere in between. Primark not as good as m&s.

originalmavis Mon 15-Feb-16 19:35:43

Arf - I meant at the top! Peepong over the waistband.

ParcelP Mon 15-Feb-16 19:37:06

I find it depends on the person. M and s are the worst for me, primark the best, due to the high elastic thing content

A lot of the old ladies at work do this!.
