I'm after some recommendations.

I'm 5"5 and a size 20/22, I know I know, working on it.

Where can I buy some long body tights? I've had some in the past but for love nor money I have no clue where I got them, at a guess, Marks, sainsburys, tesco, primark or asda.

I obviously need the xl size but I want the length in the body to be able to hoik them right up.

Help me please, I'm desperate

Can you order online? I'm a size 16/18 but 5'8 so I need big and long and I get them from here. http://www.thebigtightscompany.co.uk

They have a good selection smile

Thanks, worth considering. Would prefer to find something on the John street/supermarket for those tight emergencies though wink

I recently got some from M&s that were pretty boob warming - can't remember which exact type though. I'm the same size as you.

Primark opaque tights (the 100 denier ones) are brilliant. Much better than a lot of more expensive ones.

Cheapos? Expensive? Multi pack?

The single pack ones which are about £2 a pair from memory. The xl easily came up to my boobs when I was pregnant and I'm 5ft 8 and was around a size 14/16 plus pregnant belly when I was pregnant.

I find that Evans are pretty good for this actually. And Taking Shape had some in the same. M&S I find aren't nork huggers- they slip down. But Evans have been washing and wearing well and stay up.

The m&s pack was a two-pack and probably cheapish cos I keep buying expensive ones that are too good quality to be really boob reaching. Lycra opaque not woolly.

XL Jasper Conran tights from Debenhams, the 120 denier ones smile

Sorry they're 100 denier!

The ONLY good tights are M&S Autograph Bodyshaper/slimming 60 den. The only ones.

Come up to your tits

I have one pair that I absolutely love; they're old M&S body shapers in a size too big.

I've tried to replace them but they don't seem as long. sad
