I know it's been done to death but please help. I need leggings for work (to wear with a dress, I know shoot me now). I'm 5"7 with a big stomach and longish legs. Want good quality non saggy keep their shape leggings.

I've got some black tall leggings from Next which are good ...I'm 5ft 9 with 33 in legs, size 16/18.... They're pretty good and wash well...only do black though
However Long tall Sally have a good selection as well and I got large in black and navy ( lots more colours tho!) ...they are VERY long tho but v comfy!!

Maidenform. They do them under the name flexees or self expression
They have a tummy control panel but mega comfy and stretchy, I'm 5ft 10 and a bit and wear them all the time

The luxury leggings from Sainsbury's have a really comfortable waistband (also quite high), and come in 3 different lengths, and are very good quality. They are the only kind I buy now, £10 each.

I wil say it again, I am also a booby apple. I recently found some capri length leggings in an exercise place here in the US. Lucy I think its called.

I expect you can get similar in the UK - and they are very good at tummy control.

Landsend do some good ones, with none of the see through nonsense.

Also River Island size 18 leggings good for me - 5ft 8, big tum, long legs - they seem to hold you in too!

Dorothy Perkins maternity leggings in a smaller size. The key is not having the waistband round your middle if you're apple shaped so it doesn't dig in.
These give a really smooth line and are long as well. I've carried on with them after pregnancy and they look so much better.
