Can you recommend good tights?

For formal work dresses and just generally. Natural looking for work but good opaques too. There have got to be some that look good, fit well and keep their shape!

This makes me feel sweaty just thinking about wearing tights at the moment, but I find m & s opaque s good

I know. smile Very formal office wear. If you wear a skirt you need tights too! The lighter denier skin tone ones snag so easily and look really nasty.

M&S have a huge selection...almost too many. Got really confused and left without any last time! blush

Tesco opaques are very good. I now seek them out after being dissapointed by many other pricier ones.

Fab thanks. I'll try M&S and Tesco opaques...60 or 100 denier?

What about the finer skin coloured ones....any ideas?

Do you get what you pay for with tights? Are they less likely to sag or snag if you buy high end ones?

Boots 15 denier are pretty grim. Almost sparkly and rough feeling.

And they get baggy around the knees!
