Children's tights!

Can anyone recommend brands of tights that don't go all saggy and threadbare, and that have shaped feet?

I need to get school tights, and also fun tights for weekends.

Wondering whether spending more money guarantees better quality tights (thinking of getting them in somewhere like Polarn o Pyret) or whether I should just accept that they will all end up baggy and saggy, and just buy the cheapest possible.

Where does everyone else buy school tights? I need navy, black or grey.

M&S don't have shaped feet, I have no idea who Polam o Pyret is (sheltered life?!)

John Lewis. Absolutely worth the money. Cheap ones from tesco / sainsburys are a flare economy.

I will try John Lewis.

I thought Polarn o Pyret was well known, as friends seem to swear by them - my SIL in particular is always going on about them and buys all her DC's clothes from there.

Next tights. Fantastic. Never go baggy and they have outlive all other tights. Never a hole to be seen grin

Have to vote for John Lewis , even the cream /white ones wash as if new every time.

I think I will go with John Lewis, that is 2 recommendations. (Or maybe one pack from JL and one from Next, and I can properly compare which are best grin)

John Lewis are pretty good. I think Jojo maman are the best in terms of durability.

I did think of Jojomaman but unfortunately they have got rubber non slip bits on the feet which I thought would be uncomfortable with shoes.

The John Lewis thermal tights are the only ones my girls will wear. Soft, wash well and feel nice on. They come in grey, navy and black. I go up one size.

Country kids- best tights. 100% cotton and in loads of colours.

I also buy them Fub tights for extra nice and warm ones

ooh, I love all the different colours of the Country kids ones! Thank you!

Yes the county kids are great. Only thing is the sizes. They are 1-3 years, 3-5 years, 6-8 years etc. So cover a larger gap. But I would get the bigger size if they are towards end of size before, ie I have just bought age 6-8 years for my just 5 year old.

Sainsbury's school tights - kept their shape and am using the same set for a second winter for my DD. She is not the sort to crawl around when playing so can't comment on threadbare knees.
