I need the best pair of nude tights ever.

I don't normally do dresses due to blotchy, veiny calfs.

But the time has come.....please help.

Have a look on Such a huge range, amazing quality and delivery is pronto! I have never bought my tights from the high street since

I've not tried it myself but I've seen many a recommendation on here for Sally Henson (or suchlike) leg makeup as an alternative to nudes.

The only stylish (as opposed to 'functional for the office) nude tight option is Wolford Twenties nude micronets. They are stupid expensive but last for ever. Once you try micronets, you won't look back.

these are the ones kate middy wears apparently

OK, I'm thinking Spanx control tights to wear under the Wolford twenties (will be £44) but I think it's the way to go.

I have the spanx ones. Never wore them. The nude isn't rude. It's like a rusty come ginger colour.

Yeah, but kate has nice legs in the first place.

The idea of Spanx tights gives me that panicked feeling you get when you're roasting hot and sweating and trying to put on tights.

Maybe some control knickers, then the Twenties.

Is MN responsible for Kate's tights selling out?

Please believe me when I tell you this: Boots.

I have to say I am vv impressed with the Boots glossy tights I bought recently.

Though I am a huge fan of the nude micronet! They work much better for me as long lasting
