Cotton opaques - where to buy

I have some great M&S cotton opaques but they are only available in grey (well, and black but I don't wear black). Where else is good for other colours, I need navy, burgandy etc? I want plain or perhaps with a cable in. M&S Large are perfect, generally one size tights I find are too small. Are White Stuff any good? Are Boden any good (££)? Need to be able to buy online.

I buy whitestuff cotton tights. Have tried others but keep going back to them. I have grey, burgundy and grey plain ones. £12.50 I think.

Some of the WS reviews suggest they are huge in the behind. Is that true (my behind fairly huge anyway......)

I have some WS ones too. I get their S/M, am generally 10/12 and M in M&S tights.

I'm a curvaceous lady and I buy their small/medium which are plenty big enough. They do wash and wear well and last forever. No itching either!

No itching, thank goodness, I have no tolerance for that. But confused re sizes. I am a normally a WS 14 (one or two 16's) and just over 5ft 7 so would assume I need the large. However they seem to changed from S/M & M/L to S, M, L and now the Large are VERY large.

I got some cotton feel ones from Tesco at the weekend, I'll pop upstairs and check the cotton content when I get a minute. They are nice, I got navy and burgundy in size L...I'll see if they're on the website.

Those are the burgundy, navy also on there if you search for cotton tights. 68% cotton. Not sure how they compare to your m and s ones!

Honey, they look great, I don't live near a Supermarket that sells clothes so it never occurred to me to look at Tesco. I have given some John Lewis ones a go today but might try those Tesco ones, not too much to spend if they don't suit.

I get tights from Falke. They are expensive but last for ages and never go baggy.
