I've never bought MV but i saw the photo and thought "Ahhhh that's what I'm looking for"

Are they what I'm looking for?
I'm usually an M&S or Sainsbury £10 but I like the wider waistband look.

You don't need to guess my age grin I'm old enough to know that a pair of leggings isn't trousers.

Are they worth a punt? Are they opaque enough?
(I'm looking at the £15/£19 pairs to start off)
What's the sizing like?

Yes they are fabulous. Very high waisted (which I like) totally opaque, wash like a dream. Very cheap for what they are, unlike a lot of MV. Sizes used to be very generous but the last pair I bought (black, ruched ankle) were a little snugger than usual

Thanks smile
My last pair of the Tu (Sainsbury) ones were really tight on the ankle , I have thin ankles are skinny feet so i was Eh?

I love the M&S jeggings (pull on) with the waistband but of course, they stopped making them.
They do have other high waist but they look a bit sport legging .

Where d'you buy MV ? I'm planning to go to John Lewis this week.

I’m quite short. Will they be any good for me?

I just bought some fantastic leggings in Matalan. Really thick, wide waistband, don't go baggy at the knees. Think they were £9 or thereabouts? (I also really rate their £4 longline vests, again really thick, lots of stretch, and lovely and long).
