Best tights for secondary

At primary, my kids wore wool tights for school, whereas secondary they need opaque, silky ones.

I've tried H&M, M&S, a school shop brand and Matalan. They're all ok just quite wide and do catch a lot (I guess this is due the the wearer!!)

Any tried and tested recs?

We just bought Tesco/Asda. None seemed to be any good, not even dearer brands.

Primark opaques are good, and cheap.

The cheapest ones possible! No amount of super-strength anti-snag magic is going to help 11 year olds being kids!

We started out with Waitrose essential, but have found Tesco ones to be better. But DD has gone back to wearing wooly tights, she moved to opaques as she thought she'd be teased, but noticed a few people are wearing wooly ones and she says nobody cares, but I suspect that might depend on the school.

My DD swears by the opaque ones from primark so that's a win for me too as they are so cheap!

God yes- Primark almost the way. Their opaques are the best, and I've tried hundreds.

Another vote for Primark 40D opaques. I buy cheap multipacks, in the small size. The DDs eventually trash them, and I'm not prepared to pay for expensive tights.

Dd likes Next adult ones, or JL school wear.
