Cheap and cheerful or a waste of money? I was looking at some the other day and thinking of getting them, they feel all right in the packet but what are they like to wear/how long do they last?

The wooly ones go bobbly after one wash, the nylons were ok but not amazing.

I've never had a problem with them and I've been wearing them for at least a decade

I like whatever ones are supposed to be climate control and also the shape ones. I've had more expensive tights and they've all ripped the same (not very good at been ladylike and snag them I think) so they do great for me.

I find their opaques to be better and longer lasting than some of the other more expensive ones. Just recently bought their fishnet type ones as well and they are great.

They simply don't fit me, they're tiny.

Either that or I'm massive grin

I was looking at some in black boxes I think they said something about aloe vera on them and seemed very soft are they any good? I think they where £3.

Yy to their opaques for winter (or maybe August if this weather continues). Have never tried any of their other tights

Do their opaque tights have a gusset? Their packaging doesn't mention it. I usually avoid tights without a gusset, but maybe I should make an exception?

Never bought the tights but have bought the pop socks (worn under trousers as part of work uniform) and they are just the same as more expensive ones

Their fleece lined opaque tights are fantastic - so warm and they last well. I'm still wearing the ones I bought last year. Agree that the sizes are not generous. I'm a 14/16 and the L/XL (they come in S/M or L/XL) are just about right on me.

I have to disagree on the sizing. Im a size 10-12 and buy the girls aged 13 opaques.

£3 for two pairs. Fit perfectly.
