what color leggings would you put under a black shirt type dress?

Could one of you give me some fashion advice please? I have a shirt type dress with white writing on it, but I don't know what color leggings to put under it. The shop told me that I could just wear it as address, but I am really worried that it is see-through. I am visually impaired, so can't actually tell if it is or not. If I put leggings underneath, do they sell knee length leggings anywhere? I am a size 4 to 6 depending, but can also buy in children's if I need to. I can fit in A children's age 13.

The only leggings I have are black. I think it would be too much black if I wore them wouldn't it?

You can get knee length leggings. I saw some in sainsburys today. They might not be very thick though. I think black would be fine.

Can you ask anyone else if the dress is see-through?

I think black would be fine too. Or white seeing as the dress has white writing on it.

If it's long enough to wear as a dress, would a slip help with potential see-through issues?

I think it might look better without knee length leggings though if it's not see through so yes, check with someone that you trust as to whether or not it is.

I will have to check, the material is quite thin. So I think you might be able to see a slip if I wore it just us address without leggings.

Do Sainsburys do extra small women's leggings? I always thought they stopped at size 8 as the lowest women size? I can probably go buy a Primark tomorrow, so if any One has seen leggings in there, I could go there. There is all so a TK Maxx near the Primark.

A great place to get small good quality cropped leggings is Boden childrens section.. As a size 12 I have easily fitted into the aged 15 yrs .. if you are smaller the13/14 years should do it .
They are v good quality and not see through.. They also have other colours if you look

Thank you, will go on the website. Do they do delivery? I don't know where the nearest Bodden would be to where I live so ordering online may be easier.

Primark have knee length leggings!

Boden is online only OP (with the exception of a few outlet shops). It's normally very quick delivery.
