Used to love m&s bodyshaper tights 40 & 50 den, but they changed the 'recipe' about 5 years ago, and those I bought then were rubbish (but m&s went through an all-round rubbish stage around then so maybe they're better now?). Also noticed H&M selling bodyshapers but anyone tried them & liked them? Or perhaps you recommend somewhere else? Just looking for small, black, non shiny winter tights that hold everything in. Or most of it ;). Oh & also looking for high st rather than high end...
Marking my spot. I bought some M&S 60 denier again this year. I agree they're not so sucky-in anymore. I saw they had 100 denier shaper ones and thought they might be better, but only bum and tum shaping. I also need need need thigh too. Good ole saddlebags.
Hehe Mum re micro mess; blinky irony was rather good too Hmmm, so it seems maybe I should try M&S again. Since discovering how rubbish they became, I held on to some of my old versions (old skool darning toes and the like), but all (bar possibly one pair) really need to be chucked out. They must surely be at least 5 if not 8 (!) years old now... Alternatively, maybe the only route is to shell out? Mind you, I used to buy posh tights (in pre kid days) but none of those were ever quite as good as the original M&S.
Hmm lurking yes thems the ones but they do look too thin. Confused now since my trusty but now nackered m&s ones say '40' or '50' den at top but are v thick (or at least no parsnip view). Hmmm. Btw Im sure h&m did have some 60 den body control tights - tho was with crazed toddler so may be wrong. Off to find mum in the gusset dpmt of m&s. Oh no, that was deeply unpleasant, sorry mum.
