Does anyone know where I can get good (ie not short & see through) black leggings in size 24-26? I'm well aware that I'm verging on hugeness & should therefore probably not even wear leggings or go out in public at all according to some but I do wear them with long tops, mainly for work where I'm only visible from the knee down anyway because of the nasty labcoats I wear. I've bought leggings from Evans, Yours & Simply Be and they're ok but tend to be a bit thin & see through and some of the Evans ones are really short. Is there anywhere else to try?
Thanks ladies, I'll have a look. You're right Pink, Sainos clothes do come up big, I have some of their short lived 'Grace' range & the sizing on that was very generous. I'll have a look in the big Sainos near us when I next go
Vicky, thank you so much for the links. I never think of looking in 'normal' shops, only the plus size ones. Those m&s ones look good. I think I'll order some & also go to sainsburys tomorrow. Thanks everyone.
This might sound strange but have you thought about maternity leggings ? Especially if you have a bit of a tummy in proportion to hips/bum I am a total convert. Post baby I have a bit of a mummy tummy. I now only buy maternity leggings in a smaller size as they pull up over tummy but still fit bum nicely and stop me getting that annoying thing where they slip down all of the time and go lose at the crotch. I get the jojomamanbebe ones. I should add I am a 10/12 but I assume it would still work in plus sizes. If you are more of an apple shape than a pear/hourglass shape def worth a try.
