Primark is an interesting suggestion - had thought they wouldn't work for my size/shape!
Have had some success with M&S black tights but have always been disappointed with their sheer tights. Ideally I want some nude tights for summer dresses at work and REALLY struggling to find some that fit.
I'm a size 20 and 5 foot 7. I occasionally fit in Next XL, and they wouldn't work if I were taller. Some Falke ones are ok, and I suspect would go bigger, but like a PP said, Big Tights Company is best I've found.
I've had some good nude tights a while ago from Peacocks. I just bought the largest size (xxl or xxxl I think) and it was brilliant not to have to struggle into them. I usually wear Marks and Spenser tights in size XL although some styles in that size have not fitted. The bodysensor thermal ones are usually good.
Almost the same height at 5"7 and often they bunch at my ankles because there's extra length when stretched so would be great for someone slightly taller and I'm the same size and they all fit perfectly no matter what the thickness!
very expensive ( but maybe not if you factor in price per wear ) , - Wolford do the best, and they last Before I lost some weight, I was much the same as you 5'10" and size 20. M &S - had to be pulled up too much , and always put a finger through them .
