Boden. Great quality, not see through, wash brilliantly, don't sag at knees or arse. I've had two pairs in each colour and worn/washed them tons over last 3+ years, still like new. Tried Sainsburys, Tesco, Next - not a patch on Boden.
I wore my Monsoon leggings for years, was so disappointed when they split. I also searched high and low for decent, thick black leggings and have just found THE best pair in Home Bargains! I kid you not. Think they're called Love your Assets, £5.99!
I'm pleased to see a few more options than just Sainsbury's come up on this thread.
Their £10 leggings (and the M and S ones) are good quality in the legs part, not see through etc, BUT they have a massive thick waist band which shows through the dress or skirt you're wearing. They're more like a replacement for trousers than tights. I'm eternally searching for decent quality, proper stretchy and stay tight leggings, but with a normal, flat waist band, or none at all, not one like on exercise leggings. Primark ones used to be great years ago but they changed a long time ago.
I've worn wool tights through the winter and footless opaques in the spring/summer/autumn for years now.
