Lots of Tights

(9 Posts)

I recently did a stock-take of my tights and realised I owned over 50 pairs!! Maybe I'm a bit of a hoarder (and I do love tights) but I think this is rather excessive. I have maybe 30 black pairs and probably 10 in nude, the rest more colourful.
What is occupying everyone else's drawers?

I have about three pairs, and two pairs of footless tights - all woolly.
I'd have more if they farking well FIT people over five feet tall.
(Is this market research? grin)

Tights are what I buy when dp tells me we are too broke for me to buy anything - a girl ALWAYS needs tights, right?

Can I ask all you tights lovers a question?

I have recently started to invest in good quality tights in different colours, but each time I wear them they get fluffy from where they rub on the top of boots etc, this is in different places/heights depending on what boots I am wearing. Can anything be done before I ruin all my lovely new tights??

I usually wear socks over my tights when wearing boots. It doesn't always work but often helps.
