I have been wearing leggings as tights (with boots, so you only really see two inches of legging!) for ages, but want some proper tights now so I can wear shoes with dresses/skirts!

Can anyone recommend some that have a nice wide comfortable waist band!! I'm a size 12, but hate things cutting me in half at the waist as I think this looks awful under clothes.

Buy them a couple of sizes bigger and pull them up to under your bust - wont roll down and will create a smooth line under clothes

I find the primark ones surprisingly good. I agree with Shygirlie that sizing up helps

Falke ones are quite good - they are relatively long in the body which means they sit higher so no bulge. Wolford are good too, as are Calvin Klein

Primark ones are fab

M&S Autograph black velvet opaques. Better than Wolford IMHO, and they last and last. It's the only item of clothing I still buy from M&S since they have become so crap.

Sainsburys 3D ones are the best I've had for a while.
