I'm looking for recommendations for leggings. Warm enough for winter, don't go baggy too quickly and aren't too expensive?

Sainsburys. The 'luxury' ones (£10), not the cheapo packs of 2.

Bought some fab fleece lined ones from primark . about £7 I think.

YY. Sainos, the £12 (I think) luxury ones. The best leggings I've found. The sizes come up large though so you may want to go down a size.
Their jeggings are good too.

Wallis-£12 ones. I have 4 pairs and they are so comfortable. Thick, don't bag around the knees, have a wide waistband so don't cut in. Perfect.

Fabulous ladies, I'm thinking I could buy some at sainsburys with my food shopping! smile

Leggings ? Never ! Unless you're 21 or under .

Third the sains ones....even fine shoved in the tumbly. I have 3 pairs smile

Macloveswill Fri 09-Jan-15 21:30:42

Oh and pigwitch I'm well over 21! wink

I got some from next. The material feels a bit like a wetsuit but they hold there shape well and are not in any way see through.
I think they were £18.

M&S leggings are great. Nice thick waist band means they stay up, 3 lengths to choose from, quite thick (not to be worn as trousers mind, purely as thick tights). Only £9.50 a pair.

Boden. Keep their shape really well.

babybelleuk Fri 09-Jan-15 22:29:31

Ah acsec, I hadn't thought of that. Just to be clear, they need to be ok as trousers/leggings. Not too thin.

WanderingTrolley1 Fri 09-Jan-15 22:35:06

H&M basics - £5.99 a pair. Wear, wash, tumble dry well.

DamselNotInHerDress Fri 09-Jan-15 22:38:02

Yes to H&M. The only place I'll buy them from these days.
Thick, keep their shape forever, stay up exactly where they should and so so cheap at £6 a pair.

babybelleuk Fri 09-Jan-15 23:08:27

Thanks ladies, I will try sainsburys with my next shop and if none in store, I will try to make it into town for H&M.

CointreauVersial Fri 09-Jan-15 23:13:34

Next. Nice and thick.

(DD1, who's 13, swears by them).

River Island. They come up quite high but they don't go baggy at all.

Fabulassie Fri 09-Jan-15 23:58:50

I'm 45 and I look fantastic in leggings.

Anyway I second the Primark fleece-lined leggings.

H&M leggings have waists that are too big, even though the legs fit.

pseudonymity Sat 10-Jan-15 02:37:11

...Primark ones are too synthetic. I only rate the American apparel ones, I wish I could find something cheaper.

babybelleuk Sat 10-Jan-15 08:59:09

Hmm... River island sound good as I'm long bodied and H&M because I'm carrying baby weight around my middle.

Primark thermal leggings (late 40s btw biscuit)

Miss Selfridge do a lovely range of leggings that keep their shape, are warm and are sort of a semi-satin look - not shiny, and they never fade in the wash due to the fabric its made from. They're around £16 I think. I never shop in Miss Selfridge but stumbled upon these leggings in House of Fraser where Miss Selfridge have a small section. I love em and have stocked up on a few pairs
