Hiya, can anyone recommend the best place to get these? I know you can get them online from most shops but a lot of the reviews say they slip or roll down so are rubbish hmm

I got great ones from M&S that lasted three pregnancies.

Mine were from H&M, they were really comfy smile

I bought a few pairs of Polish (I think) ones from ebay for about a fiver apiece, brilliant. No problems at all with staying up.

H&M

Debenhams ones were pretty good

unicornchaser Thu 26-Apr-18 15:23:31

Thanks will have a look at these ones! My normal tights are now just digging in and hurting me sad

Boots! They last well and are usually on buy one, get one half price.

Got some from new look so comfy too.

My new look ones fall down all the time and are really uncomfortable. Maybe it's just because I don't have a big bump yet, I'm only 18+4. But normal tights are too small. I need to try a different make , I think!

It was the new look ones I bet particularly bad reviews of them slipping down.

Think I'll check out m&s, h&m or Debenhams 
I'm only 13 +3 but I'm hating them digging into my belly but I may have a similar issue as you @kitty1013 if I've not got a big enough bump yet!

I’m 20 weeks and I’m in my normal tights but a few sizes up. They are made by a company called heist (buy them online) and are the best tights I’ve ever worn. No sagging, no digging. You can get high waisted ones that go over your bump. Highly recommend them but they are pricey.

Matalan!

BlueBug45 Thu 26-Apr-18 19:38:43

H&M

Coudn't find any in Debenhams and Boots the right denier.

To be fair even when not pregnant I'm particular on what tights I find comfortable, stay up and are long enough in the leg. I'm happy with normal tights from Boots, Debenhams and H&M but not M&S, so not surprised if all shops maternity tights follow that pattern.

I've got Boots ones that I think are really comfy but I think they only had one thickness of black ones, can't remember what it is.

I found Matalan ones good, and so much cheaper than most places. They also (used to at least) do some funky designs.

Do NOT get the ones from Mothercare! I bought size large at 16 weeks and they're too tight and painful! And I'm only a size 10-12!!

All maternity tights are the devil. Get some hold ups - much less stressful!

LeighaJ Fri 27-Apr-18 18:32:29

I really liked the ones I got from Mothercare

Cheeseandapple Fri 27-Apr-18 18:47:36

Asos or boots but top tip is to tuck your tights under your bra! I was constantly waddling around because they were falling down and then had a brain wave and never had that problem again.grin

Next!!

Blooming marvellous....! I'm currently 25 weeks and they've grown with me. smile

Sugamoma1 Sat 28-Apr-18 08:01:48

I got mine off amazon and they were really comfy!

Elephantgrey Sat 28-Apr-18 08:12:04

I got mine from Boots. They are really comfy.

Thanks all, looks like it's a matter of personal preference with so many mixed recommendations! I will try a few of the suggestions and see which I get on best with. Or hope for a warm enough summer to go without (hahaha no chance in Scotland!) hmm
