I'm a size 20/22 and have struggled for ages to get tights that fit well,dont fall down, cover my bum. found a pair the other week that do this so thought I would share! smile
primark 100 denier tights are brilliant. I haven't had to pull them uo once and they have a nice amount of "give" too. (dont feel so stretched they'll rip. )

On the other hand, tights from "yours" were a complete nightmare. Honestly couldn't walk more than three steps without them falling down.

(If only I could now solve my nice plus sized pants issue I'd be happy)

I will throw in a rec for the big tights company smile
And these but they're a little expensive

M&S XXL ones are good for me (similar size to you.)

ebear I can only get xl m&s didn't know they did bigger.
Any ideas for knickers? I used to get mine from peacocks but they've stopped.

I'm pretty sure they're XXL. Haven't bought any for a while, to be fair, and also, only in the larger store (I've a choice of two where I am, but the choice in the smaller one is far less.)

I vote for boots tights here. I'm 18-20 and their xl is fab.

Pants- m&s.
