I'm struggling with tights. They keep falling down and it's a nightmare. Does anyone know of any magic brand that stays up.
I've been trying ASDA Tesco, Primark new look and next.
I'm 5ft7 and a size 16 so wear a large. I don't know if it's a size issue, sometimes they feel far too long but some mediums are to small.

Snag. Snag. Snag.

Autograph Seam Free or Heist.

Both have sensible sized cotton gussets so you don’t need anything under them. Wear them without knickers so the top adheres directly to your body, hence no double layer slippage and they stop put. Those of us in the know have been doing thus for years.

@WillyMayhem snag? What do you mean?

@StarlightLady thank you. I'll go have a look on the site now.

Another vote for Snag tights!
Just put snag tights into google...all will be revealed!

Snag tights are amazing! I wish they'd existed years ago.

Snags are the best tights ever. I'm now wearing lots of skirts and dresses following the discovery of snags tights.

Brianna83 Mon 02-Dec-19 12:37:55

Yeah, as everyone else has said buy from Snag. Google them.

I'm a 16/18 and 5'11" and have always struggled. Until I found the holy grail that are Snag tights.

They are pricey but so so so worth it. I will never buy another other tights now.

Ok look like I'll be having a look at snag. Do you girls also suggest no pants?

MrsPerfect12 Mon 02-Dec-19 12:44:20

I've bought a pair of snag tights to give them a go 🤞🏻

Another vote for snag tights! Hope you get them soon.

StarlightLady Mon 02-Dec-19 12:58:08

MrsPerfect12 - To emphasise, 2 essentials for this, no centre seam, otherwise ouch! And a decent sized cotton gusset which Heist and Autograph have. I can’t comment on Snag.

MrsJoshNavidi Mon 02-Dec-19 13:12:21

Snag tights here too!!!

Pamela Mann curvy girl tights. Soooo comfy and last for ages.

I wearing them right now.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Mon 02-Dec-19 13:26:00

Snags for sure. I have always loathed tights but I love my Snags, they are as comfy as leggings.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Mon 02-Dec-19 13:27:21

Oh, and I couldn't wear them without knickers. They would probably be comfy, but I wouldn't feel right.

Agree with Snag or Autograph seam-free. Snag great for everyday wear, autograph are lovely for everyday and for best 😁

StarlightLady Mon 02-Dec-19 13:58:26

@AndNoneForGretchenWieners - Unless you try (in the comfort of your own home?), you’ll never know the difference it makes.

‘Saves washing too smile!

MrsPerfect12 Mon 02-Dec-19 14:11:32

@StarlightLady I'm going to try autograph too. I'll probably try them at home first to see how the nakedness feels 🙈😂😂😂 I'll need a few pairs.

BusterTheBulldog Mon 02-Dec-19 14:13:38

I always wear shorts / big pants over the top! Works a treat. I always size up too.

rbe78 Mon 02-Dec-19 14:56:08

Another vote for Snag! I ordered them for the first time a few weeks ago (quite reluctantly, as they are pricey compared to supermarket tights) but they are definitely worth the money! And you get a discount if you buy a few pairs.

Great fit (you choose size based on a combo of height, dress size and body shape), stay put, the waistband doesn't roll down and dig in, lovely soft fabric and a proper gusset.

I'm a convert!

Snag tights are the holy grail. Can not recommend them
Highly enough.

weebarra Mon 02-Dec-19 16:51:09

Finally bought my first pair of snag tights last week. My next order arrived today - they are so comfortable!

SallyOMalley Mon 02-Dec-19 19:44:39

How do the toes fair with Snag tights? I have ridiculously pointed feet (perfect for winklepickers) and walk several miles a day. I'm lucky if a pair of tights lasts me a single day ...

yorkshireteaspoonie Mon 02-Dec-19 20:57:05

Snags! They wash so well and are super robust against three dogs, catching them on the underside of my desk, sharp finger nails... nothing touches them and no thinning/ holes in the toes
