I got some good ones from miss Selfridge. Tbh I think if you spend anything les than £15-£20 on a pair you are going to end up with see through ones.

Leggings should surely only be worn with a skirt or bum covering top unless you are under the age of 6.

Sainsburys! The luxury ones with Modal. Black, grey and navy - about 12 quid a pair. They're amazing and wash well too.

What Pourquoi said - regardless of how thick the material is, they are NOT trousers, they are LEGGINGS - to be worn UNDER a long top, so no-one should be able to see if they are see through on the bum or not.

Sainsburys the single not double pack ones. Bloody brilliant.

I'm wearing sainsburys "posh" ones now - they are fab and wash really well..

Nearly every woman I see in leggings, I can see her underwear. I'd given up and accepted that they're supposed to be that way. Now you're telling me that they're not. Blimey.

Also, are you wearing a size too small? That will make them more see-through.

heisenberg999 Sun 30-Mar-14 16:57:11

They arent supposed to be see through and dont listen to the long top brigade.

Ugh to leggings and a long tunic. No thanks, frumpos!

I like these ones

Cherish your DH - more women should live with people like him. Perhaps we can clone him?

Bunbaker Sun 30-Mar-14 17:13:08

Leggings are no substitute for trousers. Buy jeggings instead.

Catsmamma Sun 30-Mar-14 17:13:33

hah....who else has seen your spotty pants today then OP

and better frumpo than cameltoe, charity girl hmm

I wear new look ones (double pack) and they seem to be ok.

I wear a slightly long top with leggings, long enough to cover my camel toe, but I wear them as trousers.

Optimist1 Sun 30-Mar-14 17:15:46

Top marks to your DH! There's many a man that would have thought it but said nothing and left you to display your spotty pants to all and sundry!

charitygirl Sun 30-Mar-14 17:16:09

I don't get cameltoe in leggings. Too tight trousers maybe

heisenberg999 Sun 30-Mar-14 17:17:45

It all depends how big you are slim people can wear leggings with everything . People that get camel toe, mishapen thighs and look strange in leggings it is usually as they are a bit too chunky for them. I dont think tunics help with leggings as you can still see big lower legs, if your larger its really best to avoid and go for another style.

Another vote for H&M leggings. However I also agree that unless you are a v slim 16 year old girl leggings should only be worn with long tops or dresses so no danger of seeing your underwear at all smile

JoStrom Sun 30-Mar-14 17:45:31

Sainsbury's ones are fab- cheap 2 pack if onl with long top but even then they are pretty much opaque - unlike eg primani - eeek - but the luxury Sainsbury are totally opaque and lovely quality

Next sell some great ones for £18.
