I am fed up with boring old tights. I like to wear skirts, with boots and thick, patterned, winter tights. Like these

However, I am 6'2" with a 36" inside leg and am starting to despair of ever finding any.

The only ones I can find that are long enough, only come in black or brown or plain colours. I've tried all my usual places, Long Tall Sally, Tall Girls and M&S but they only have boring ones.

Has anyone got any suggestions? And, I will never order from sock shop again. I ordered tights as per their sizing guide, yet they were too short in the leg and I cannot return them as they have been "worn".

Please help, I am getting totally fed up of black, brown or ill fitting tights.

Tk maxx would be my suggestion. Friend who is 5'11 gets ones there which fit her.

Might not be your style but I bought some fatface tights the other day - I'm 5'6" size 12 but like big tights and these were about 2 feet longer than my legs so might be worth a go?

Bought large

Have you looked at tightsplease, stockingshq (not just stockings), and i think there is a uktights too. I was looking for something in particular so was checking all the options, and they all had a tall section. I don't know if they had patterned wintery ones though.
