I am fat and short - is it possible to get opaque tights that don't do a Nora Batty?
Thurlow - are you not just continually adjusting though?! I really want to wear my shoes with dresses for nights out but end up wearing a 'shoot' to conceal the bunch - which is okay - but sometimes not feminine enough for the dress/occasion.
Obviously the answer is to lose the weight but that's fairly long-term in outlook and winter is here NOW!
I'm not short anymore but was a bit of a late bloomer in terms of reaching my adult height. When I was a teen I'd shorten them by hacking the feet off and sewing new toe seams using a really tight zig-zag stitch. Works like a charm.
Only works if you happen to have access to a sewing machine, though.
