I would love to wear a short dress for a party but not blessed with the best legs - looking for a fab pair of opaque tights that flatter the whole leg and give confidence. Please help!

M&S 60 denier bodysensor! I basically live in them. Properly opaque and v flattering.

Primark 200 denier for work or 100 denier for glossy

Marks & Spencer Autograph tights. Pricey but so worth it.

Primark 100 denier microfibre tights - £2.50.

They are fab.

Seconding the Primark ones, I find they are much better than the M&S ones.

Medium priced - m&s autograph. If you want to treat yourself and look after them, wolford are AMAZING and will last for ages.

It's also worth looking at stuff with a pattern if your dress is plain as that can be a nice look if you like it. So eg a short black dress with nice shaping opaque black tights with crystals down the back or something. M&S and wolford both do party tights! If your dress is already sparkly or patterned, nice and simple smile

Warmlegs.
Thermal tights. Keep you nice and warm when wearing party dresses!

Thanks to you all. The Wolford tights look great but I would be worried about snagging them...

I have one pair of Wolford tights (glossy beige/leg colour) and they have been very durable. For opaques I usually buy 100-200 primark ones and they're good.

M&S 100 denier bodysensor. Smooth, totally opaque and flattering.

Seconding the M&S 60 denier body sensor tights. Best fit I've come across and wash well.

Surprisingly perhaps, but Sainsbury's tights, 80 or 100 denier. Wash well, almost impossible to snag and about a fiver for three pairs.

Make sure you hand wash them, drip dry and don't tumble them to make sure they last and don't go bobbly.

Lelloteddy Tue 22-Nov-16 20:24:28

M&S 60 denier.

timeforachangeithink Tue 22-Nov-16 20:26:57

Primark 100 denier.

Marylou2 Tue 22-Nov-16 20:30:23

Wolford. They last forever. Cost per wear is amazing despite initial .

Primary fleece lined tights. Not sure on the denier but they are amazing!

Temporaryname137 Tue 22-Nov-16 20:51:38

If you are careful with wolfords they won't ladder! Honestly!

Which denier should is best with the Wolford's, Temp? The opaqueness seems to vary from brand to brand. There are some bargains on ebay!

PandoraHadABox Wed 23-Nov-16 07:10:13

Also, according to the Wolford size chart I would be a size S (5'2" tall, 55kgs) but some of the sellers are saying that size S is a 10-12? I am a size 8 (uk), which size Wolford would I be? Thank you x

PandoraHadABox Wed 23-Nov-16 07:14:13

Confused about the Wolford sizes - according to their chart at 5'2" and 55kgs I am a size S, but ebay sellers are saying that S is a size 10/12. I am a size uk 8, so which size in Wolfords do you think I would be? Sorry for so many questions but need to get it right, don't want Nora Batty baggy ankles! grin
