Over the bump tights

(25 Posts)

Where have people purchased their tights from?

I am finding my regular tights quite uncomfortable on my bump, but can't find any decent over the bump maternity tights sad

Personally prefer h and m maternity - got some more expensive ones from jojo maman bebe and the elastic went almost immediately!

John Lewis! A bit pricey but wash really well and super comfortable

I'm quite happy with the h&m ones.

My mum bought me some from Boots, they were comfy, but she only got me 30 denier or something like that so I don't wear them much, but there were other deniers she said.

Asos 👍🏼

I've found George at Asda fine for work etc and then got a couple of pairs of H&M as well. I live in dresses, skirts and tights In winter!

Debenhams ones are ok and not crazy expensive

Mothercare 2 for £15 i think

Boots and mothercare, although I found the boots ones lost their elastic after a couple of washes and kept rolling down my bump.

I looked at the H&M ones, but they only seem available online and I am unsure of what their sizes are for tights as it does not say on the size guide.
Can anyone give any advice on sizes, as I do seem to vary between M and L in tights. Size 12, but long legs.

Thanks all smile

Marks and Spencer's maternity black tights! Amazing things and wash really well. Although £6 a pair (ouch). Tried loads of others and XL ones fit my long Legs and long body really well and stay up!

I heard a few good things about M&S maternity tights, but unfortunately I cant find any stores that stock them, and seem unable to get their website to work sad

I bought these in 100 denier and they are great. I followed their size guide and they got perfectly.

M&S maternity tights are amazing. Lived in them for DS1. Couldn’t find any recently with DS2.

I second ASOS but I went a size down as they came up large but I am short

rabbitsdontlayeggs Thu 07-Dec-17 14:45:36

M&S or John Lewis. They were fab. I did buy some cheaper ones but after they rolled down my bump to my bum (once the top started rolling they shot down so fast 😂) in Tesco forcing me to waddle like a fat duck to the toilets to yank them back up again I stuck to the slightly more expensive ones!

CL1982 Thu 07-Dec-17 14:46:39

These are the ones OP smile

I am a size 12 and got over the bump tights from next in medium. They fit really well and don't fall down. £9 a pair but am definitely getting my moneys worth as I wear them all the time! And they do next day delivery smile

These are great:

So expensive but better than every other pair I bought and have washed well and not torn. I bought a range of other cheaper ones but found them noticeably less comfy and good at staying up around the bump.

I always wear the M&S Autograph velvet touch tights- they cost a fortune but are really comfy, last for ages and wash really well. The elastic is really comfy.

I didn't bother with maternity tights- just went up from a medium to large as they're pretty roomy over my bump and they've seen me right through to 36 weeks with space to grow!

I got a high denier and they feel really good quality.

Manctart Fri 08-Dec-17 11:16:51

I'm currently wearing H&M ones for the first time which I think feel a bit thin but my god they are so comfy! I am going to wear them as normal tights when not pregnant 😂 I'm a size 10 and got small and they seem to fit ok. I don't really have much of a bump yet though so may have to get bigger ones later on.

Flesh coloured maternity tights are really hard to come by! I got some from H&M which were great.

MulderitsmeX Fri 08-Dec-17 19:44:12

Boots for me, 6 months and they're still going strong (i bought 3 pairs).

Also until about 18 weeks I just cut a pair of normal boots ones and that worked well, washed them and they didn't ladder.
