I am in love with my new All Saints leggings/skirt thing...

it (they?) should make it onto mn swears by, could not be softer or comfier fabric, they look great (solves any issues with bum exposure yet thin enough to wear under a clingy top) and so far no sign of bagginess on knees....although I haven't washed them yet hmm. They feel more like cashmere opaque tights than Lycra rich leggings a la American Apparel, which would usually be my choice for leggings.

I think I may have to buy some more...the shop assistant said lots of people had been coming back for extra pairs too, so they are flying out.

Take a look here

Mmm, I want them now!

that's a really good idea - I never saw anything like that before! Does the skirt bit really look like a skirt? How clingy is it?

It is pretty clingy, like a tube skirt but it doesn't squash your bum IYSWIM.

That's just lazy.

It's the 90s all over again.

Absolutely bogging.

I like it, but it is expensive for what seems like a footless tights and slip combo...

90s? More like 1985! Anyone remember the Madonna "Like a Virgin" video? (trying really hard not to show my age here)

Love them, I've just got some high waisted leggings from american apparel, but ordered these also, thanks for the tip, I'm sure I will live in these! And good on all saints for having free p&p! Can't wait to receive!!

Nice! But doesnt seem expensive? I have the same ones, i bought it last yr from all saints for only £28.

I'm really pleased to come across this thread - I ordered some of the cropped ones yesterday after seeing them in-store, can't wait to get them they are such a great idea!

Ooh they are lovely! How does All Saints come up for size? Im between an 8 and a 10 on the bottom, so I guess I should go at least for a 10? Or even a 12 if they come up small?

TheBolter Fri 22-Jul-11 12:15:30

clucky - I just bought a dress from there which was unavailable in an 8 but the 6 fitted fine, so personally I would err on the smaller size.

TheBolter Fri 22-Jul-11 12:16:10

clucky - definitely don't go for the 12.

clucky80 Fri 22-Jul-11 14:32:02

Thanks Bolter I'll get the 10. I ordered a few bikinis from maxcleavage that arrived today and the 10 was that bit too small on the bottom - there was a bit of cellulitey escapage, not a good look! My size 8 jeans fit though so hopefuly a 10 from AllSaints will be ok. I'm going to Westfield shopping centre on Sunday so I should be able to try them on in All Saints there.

Try debenhams they have a sale 10% on lingerie.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 22-Jul-11 15:42:37

It would be cheaper to buy some sort of short, black, Lycra skirt and then when you wear your leggings out, put a hole in them, etc you still have the skirt. Just buy another pair of leggings to go with the skirt then.

BulletWithAName Fri 22-Jul-11 17:28:19

Ugh, I remember this from the 90's...

FebreezeYourJeans Fri 22-Jul-11 17:34:40

I have some of these strictly for gym use only. I'm sure they scream "I'm trying to cover up my big arse but am in fact only drawing attention to it]] but for me it's the dreaded camel toe it covers grin

Sorry but yuck, just yuck.
