After dipping my toe into the legging water with some from Primark, I found that after one wash they split from fanjo to perineum. Where do you find good leggings? I was looking at American Apparel, but a) the company makes me feel icky b) they are £50 for three pairs. Topshop were good, but now they only do their Tall leggings in black, and I want dark blue, greens, and more interesting colours.
New Look does tall leggings but not all the time and not in all the colours.
They are pretty good quality though, have had mine for ages. Had maternity ones from there too which I wore to death and didn't go too baggy / grey.
Last time I went into M&S they told me "we don't sell leggings, ma'am" as though I had asked for a boobless crotchless bodystocking. If anyone wants one of them, by the way, they are available on Norwich Market as I found out when I ran my pram into the rack and knocked several (pairs? sets?) to the floor.
I've only bought one thing from River Island in ten years - actually, I did buy a size 14 jumper which turned out to be really a size 12. They're seen as really upmarket where I grew up but it's one of those shops I don't really go into these days.
Primark slimming control leggings. They are really thick, never the see through bare arsed look come in a few colours (black, grey, purple and denim) and cost £5. I have ahad people stop me and ask where I got them. They are usually in the undies section. Ive bought, next, River Island and Warehouse and they didnt last or were seethrough.
I have pairs from White Stuff, M&S and Jane Norman (in Debenhams) - have to say that the latter were the cheapest (£12) and the ones that keep their shape better, don't go loose when wearing at all and wash best.
