Perfect thick high waisted leggings

I'm upduffed and need something stretchy already. What I'd really like are some thick black leggings that are high waisted or maybe maternity ones. I usually like those ones with the line down the middle (ponte?). I'm willing to pay medium £s as I bought some HM ones that just aren't right so I know I need to spend more than a tenner.

Mint velvet in a bigger size maybe ? I had maternity leggings from next and h and m .. also topshop do maternity .

If you are size S or M, Benetton girl's leggings are awesome in size XXL. Thick velvet cord. I found black pairs instore and am wearing them as I type.

The black leggings I wear the most out of all the pairs I have are from Avon. Perfect black leggings I think they are called. Not sure if they still do them though. They are thick, high waisted and come right down to the ankle.

H&M Heavy leggings are the only ones I've found that are thick and don't go saggy.

Sainsburys- the single ones, not packs of 2. I've been lazing in mine since 9am and they haven't bagged at all. They are about a year old so gave lasted well.

Recommend Boden's Hampshire trousers. They are nice thick but soft Ponte with a 'line' up the front and only £35 in the sale.

I recommend Sainsbury's ones too. The luxury ones are amazing and I lived in them while upduffed and still do now,three months later

What normal size are you OP? Others have suggested Topshop which are no good if you're size 18. I'd suggest Yours but they're no good if you're size 8.

Asos Premium Supersoft are fab.

These from Topshop are exactly as you describe and I can vouch that they are nice and thick and wash well. They come in long length as well.

I read the OP as needing stretchy but not necessarily maternity.

Leviticus she needs to say her size. I find Yours leggings very generous in leg length, stretchyness and denier. Not much good if you're 5ft in heels and a size 6 after a good fill though.

I'm 5ft 7 and blah size. Yours have really good leggings that are very comfortable and very roomy, but they go from size 16 to 32. If you're size 16 I really recommend Yours leggings. Even if you're a 14, those leggings are roomy and long enough to give the on-trend wrinkle at the ankle.

I usually wear a size 6 legging but am on DC 4 so I imagine myself to be expanding quite quickly. Am tallish. Doesn't have to be maternity specific, haven't work maternity specific clothes before but was thinking might be worthwhile (even if I wasn't pregnant) because I mainly want stretchiness over my tummy

Yeah, don't go to Yours! smile

If you're over 5ft 8 have you tried Long Tall Sally? Haven't tried them myself yet but they're supposed to be good.

Boden will be far better quality than Yous, IMO.

I don't think you can beat M & S for these. Good price too.
