To want tights that don't ladder?

Every pair of tights I buy seem to ladder within ten mins of me putting them on. I've tried several brands, even expensive "no ladder" tights.

I'm tall so I think that's half the problem, tights just don't pull up high enough. AIBU to want to have tights that are long enough for me? My old maternity ones were perfect sad

I hate tights with a vengence. Same here, tried all sorts in the past and they all ladder. I am 5ft 7 so not overly tall, but i do wonder if this is why they dont last longer than a day! They can put man on the moon, but ladderless tights or tight pop socks for under trousers and its a real problem it seems.

I buy Wolford; expensive at £20 a pop, but a couple of pairs last the entire winter.

Looked up wolford, never heard of them before. They certainly look hardy tights!

I was also going to recommended Wolford. Worth every penny, also always size up in tights.

I've started buying M&S 100 denier black tights. I think they were £10 for a pack of 2 pairs. I've had them for just over a month now, and have worn them at least 3 times a week, with ni laddering.
I'm 5' 10" if that's important.

I buy 15 denier from John Lewis. They last longer than the ones I used to buy from M&S.
