Like an idiot, I have torn my only pair of maternity tights (from my last pregnancy) in the zip of my knee-high boots. They were black with a criss-cross pattern on them. I've tried to get some more, but maternity tights seem to be so expensive! Mothercare just had naff black sheer things, and they were £8. The posh tights are £20 or £25, which will be more than I've spent on my whole wardrobe update this time around! Is there anywhere that does reasonably priced tights that are actually attractive?
I got some pretty inexpensive ones from Top Shop, also wore hold-ups which took a bit of getting used to but much easier to struggle in and out of than tights. Normal ones worn backwards work for a while too.
I think that DH would love for me to wear hold up stockings. I used to wear stockings all the time in the old days. When I wasn't wearing miniskirts up to my bum that is... <drags self back from nostalgia of days when didn't choose clothes based on comfort and ability to wash out toddler food and crayon easily> So I think I'll give both a go. Now that I'm not going to be spending 20 quid I feel it's OK to splash out on more than one pair.
