I so fed up with sheer tights

I've emerged from wearing woolly tights, but have to wear something, so I'm buying sheer tights. Time and time again. I bought 2 pairs for £6 in Boots today. I put my hand through the first pair when I was putting them on. From experience, I know that the 2nd pair will snag when I take them off tonight and will have to go in the bin.
Am I the only person who has this trouble, or are there sheer tights our there that last more than one wear?

sorry - the title should be 'I am...'

Someone will be along to suggest a £50 quid pair of Falkes or something, but my suggestion would be to wear something else altogether. If we all stop buying them the hideous impractical garments will cease to exist!

Are you cold without them? I'd not bother TBH. That said, there was a thread recently about cheap, durable tights but I don't remember what the recommendations were [helpful]

Micronets at £££££££ a pair a supposed to last very well.

People do often use cotton gloves for taking thin tights on and off, but obviously that adds to the faff.

I always ladder or snag sheer tights, bloody hate them! I think gloves are the only way forward.

I go from thick black tights, via trousers and socks, to bare legs. I haven't worn sheer tights for years. Can't stand the things.
