I am looking for good fitting thick black leggings that don't fall down. Any ideas? Thanks!

If your budget is high, try Sweaty Betty. Best I have ever had. Very thick and keep their shape beautifully. But £££.

Thanks but I want them to wear casually, not for sports. The reviews saying they are transparent, for the ones I like worried me a bit too.

I have several brands.
The Next and Per Una ones are the best.

Next ones are really good they last about 3 months of constant wear

Yy to Sainsburys. Thick enough, black enough and going strong over a year (have 2 pairs worn once a week each on average)

At the moment I have the Roma ones from Boden, ponte from BHS and extra thick from American Apparel. The latter ones are the absolute best ones by far.

To wear with a top, Zara definitely, they are very thick.

For under a dress/skirt, Sainsburys, the 'premium' ones are a tenner and definitely worth it, not transparent and last ages.

I find Sainsburys and matalan to be cheap but good quality for casual.

I like the Wallis high waisted ones. By far the most comfortable and long lasting ones I've tried.

CharlotteBronteSaurus Sat 30-Mar-13 20:17:58

long. thick-ass. cheap.

I've tried loads of different leggings but my favourite for thickness, keeping shape and not falling down are definitely Mint Velvet.

hellswelshy Sat 30-Mar-13 21:05:48

Id say Sainsburys for every day, Wallis too as high waisted and wash well. Next v disappointing!

I wear leggings all the time under dresses and with tops and alway but the long, stirruped ones from Matalan (£12) but they are seasonal and only sell them in the winter (now in spring/summer it's mid length ones which I don't like). So I did some research and ended up buying some high waisted long length from Simply Be this week: amazing. Long enough for long legs, nice and high waisted so don't fall down and really thick. £13. Recommend highly.

H and M here too Not the cheapest ones the next ones up they last and last and can be chucked in drier and stay ok

Asda £6 leggings are the best I have tried out of M&S, Boden and Asda. Hmm...

Kione Sun 31-Mar-13 10:25:44

Thanks all! I will start looking on the internet! No Sainsburys here ...

Kione Sun 31-Mar-13 10:26:05

Or Asda angry

Funky Simplicity ones are brilliant, they hold you in, don't roll down or get baggy knees and come in super high , high, medium and low waist, I wear mine all the time

GaryBarlowsTaxReturn Mon 09-Apr-18 12:36:07

I assume op has bought some by now considering this thread is 5 years old.

Kione Thu 03-May-18 22:24:42

😂 I did, but can't remember which ones I went for so this was handy, now I need new ones.
I was so puzzled that this thread popped up!
