What are the best opaque black tights?

I'm looking for some new black tights!

I used to love the M&S fleece lined ones because they were really nice and thick but they don't seem to do those anymore.

They don't have to be fleece lined though being properly opaque is a must!

Also I hate saggy tights! (Am 5.8/size 10)

If you've got the perfect pair, please share your secret!

Primark is your friend here!

They do properly opaque 200 denier black tights (that don't sag - I too am a hater of the saggy tight) and also have the fleece lined ones.

Thank you star!

I like the M&S velvet touch ones.

The Tesco signature luxury 140 denier opaque tights are a must for me, I used to get m&s velvet
touch but tesco are thicker and cheaper

I love the toasty merino ones from falke. Allows me to wear more dresses in deep winter.

Thanks all! The M&S velvety ones are slightly too "see through" for my liking. I've just seen that H&M do some nice thick fleecy ones though!

I just bought the m&s velvet touch ones they’re pretty good

M&S velvet touch 100denier - they're my faves. I think I saw 200denier ones when I was in there the other day too.

I agree autograph velvet touch, I am tall and had some tights disasters but theses are really comfortable. this thread has reminded me to go and clear out all the other tights so I don't old ones on by accident.

Way better than more expensive tights.

Heratnumber7 Sat 04-Nov-17 10:56:56

I buy mine from Sainsbury’s. .

Pattyandbump Sat 04-Nov-17 11:00:54

The Primark tights are by far the best I've ever bought.

Crispsheets Sat 04-Nov-17 11:01:59

I love Wolford. They last years

Botanicbaby Sat 04-Nov-17 11:26:41

Hate Sainsbury's ones!

The best black opaque I've tried are Falke which can be bought at a cheaper price at TK Maxx. Would love some Wolfords though.

this thread may help.

M&S thermal are great, but they only had a dark brown colour last time I looked.
Tesco thick black opaques are my budget favourites.

OliviaPopeRules Sat 04-Nov-17 11:38:50

Wolford are great fit and last ages

Melfish Sat 04-Nov-17 11:41:12

Falke are great but all the TK Maxx's I've been in don't have my size! Primark are also good- have a couple of pairs of their Super Soft opaques.

I'm not in the UK but I love Calzedonia. Everything I've had from there has been great tights for dd and I are warm and have never snagged. They always have unusual designs too. I think they have a few branches in the UK now.

Jasper Conran at Debenhams do opaque tights. My favourite opaques.
I love the feel of them. I think they may be 60 denier. I got them last year.
M&S Silky Soft are lovely too.

CharlieBoo Sat 04-Nov-17 21:33:21

Another vote for primark

northernsoulgirl Sat 04-Nov-17 21:36:25

Yes M&S Silky Soft, feel exactly how they sound
