I've never had any luck with M&S tights - they're always quite Baggy, but never long enough.

And don't get me started on Next!!
I bought a gorgeous pair there once, in a L, to find out that the body part was just as long as the leg part, and the worst length I have ever known - I stretched them so hard and they still came to mid thigh.
I gave them to my really short assistant, and she gave them back because the legs were too short.

M&S tights in an L or XL (depending on the style - there's a guide on the back of the packet) also are long enough to fit my 36" inside-legged, 5ft11 self!

Can I add that Tesco m/l in the cable knit or plain woolly/cottony type are very long too.

Not a fan of Tesco as a rule, but these tights are the biz grin

I have been walking round all day pulling my legs up because they're wrinkly, but I haven't once had to pull the body part of the tights up!

it's been really weird!

thanks for that! am 5 ft 9 (very leggy, short body) and gave up on tights for years due to crutch always being around my knees

I was bought sometights formethering Sunday.
I always get Large because tights normally come up tight.

I'm 5'8" with an inside leg of 31" and I feel like nora batty this morning!

the tights are m&co cable knit tights in m/l.

they've got feet and a panel at the back.
I started putting them on without stretching them, and when I got to the top of the thigh there was still loads of fabric left.
