I need a pair of brown maternity tights. Everywhere I've looked so far seems to have only black. (Actually this seems to be true of most maternity clothes - who decreed we could only wear black or denim??)

Anyway, anyone know where I can find non-black maternity tights?

And like you I'm unimpressed about the amount of black maternity clothes angry

I bought some in H&M, really cheap. Not sure if they had brown but I bought blue and green.

I have to say I'm not impressed with maternity wear myself! Either super formal or hippy casual. And all BLACK or denim. Who appointed 12-year old fashion NVQ grads to design this stuff? there's a 4 week wait on the brown tights from Way-hay...

mothercare have blue and I think brown

Mothercare have blue and pink, and black that are patterened so slightly more interesting that the plain black ones.

And for the record I LOVE the black maternity clothes!! With a carf or a big necklace I feel very cool and sophisticated!!

<<<sniggers at self as have never been cool and sophisticated in her life...!!!>>>

Yep, H&M has brown, I saw some today wink.

Mothercare definitely have brown (and also blue and grey). Was in there today stocking up (pardon the pun).

Yeah, black tops as far as the eye can see, then try finding a maternity bra that's not virginal white to go underneath, GRRangry!

I bought a thick patterned woolly grey pair from H&M yesterday. They are really warm and comfy. Worth a tenner - just about.

I bought the brown 60 denier ones from Transparenze. Most certainly not worth the £10 I paid. They ripped by the third wear! Black it is then...

Try Great quality tights and many different colours available like Beige, Tan, Amber, Mocca and cheap too from £3.85

Newlook just got some maternity tights in, they have black, brown and shocking pink.2 pairs of 40 denier for £8, I am wearing my black pair today and they are very soft and supportive in a lovely matt black, probably better quality than the 1 pair a paid £9 for at Blooming Marvellous, (blooming expensive more like!)

I am 31 weeks and size of barrage balloon! All I do is buy the XL tights from M&S normal range. Got some lovely stripy ones, and coloured opaques, really comfy. My proper maternity ones from Next constantly need hitching up!

JoJo Maman Bebe, £8. They come in 4 colours, including chocolate. Plus free delivery and extra discounts available if you look on the "Codes and Vouchers" thread on MN.

Mothercare ones are good- here

gizzy1973 Mon 26-Oct-09 15:16:02

I got some extra large tights and they are so uncomfortable think i will stick to trousers or leggings from now on

VanillaIce Mon 26-Oct-09 15:39:47

Actually, I have to agree - tights are the last thing I want to wear in pregnancy, I don't like my bump feeling trapped. I've been wearing opaque hold-ups instead, they're great.

Buy normal ones and cut them at the top and then they sit under the bump. I did that it worked brilliantly.
