Or is my skin really so rough now that I'm an old lady, that it's already full of pulled threads and looks like I've worn them for months?

After spending hours selecting from the seemingly millions of alternatives [I just want a pair of black tights honestly!] they just seem so fragile!

I recently took back 4 pairs of 'ladder-resist' as yes they resisted ladders. but they just made great big holes instead on their first outing! Come on M&S - get your game up please! We really expect more of you.angry

Were they Autograph or just standard M&S ones? I've never had a problem with the former.

"Standard" ie sheer 15-denier appearance, not support or anything fancy. A friends daughter tells me primark's are just as good if not better!!

And probably a lot cheaper!

I buy my tights in Primark.

5 pairs for £3.00.

I get mine (when I wear any - I normally wear trousers) from Aldi as they are longer than average - as are their pop socks. THey seem to last well and are cheap.

Don't get me started on how lousy M&S tights are! And the attitude of customer services when returning them didn't help either!

I second (third?) Primark!

I think I get 3 pairs for £3. And they're long enough too which is a big, big help.

I did also have a lovely pair from boots that I had to get in am emergency ladder emergency not a downstairs emergency grin. They were very nice but were about £7 for 2 pairs IIRC

I buy Asda ones too. (To my shame, but no one know where they came from when they are on). They seem to last for ages.

I also stock up in the summer when they are often on offer.

Last time I bought a 3 pack of 20 denier tights from M&S, the first two pairs ripped in my hands as I went to put them on. I've not bought them since. They're a load of shit. My DMum always used to swear by BHS tights...
