I need to shop for some new black leggings, can anyone recommend some good quality, flattering ones please? I am a size 18 but short (5ft) and I'll mostly be wearing them with tunic tops.
Fed up of buying cheap ones that end up see through or lose their shape but I need a few pairs so not too pricey......
Thanks in advance smile

Love really good quality, not see through. They do up to a size 28 I think, they also have petite and tall lengths.

I like Sainsbury’s ponte ones, they look more like trousers and have a seam down the front. Very comfortable and nice and thick. I think they’re £12.

Thanks Gigitree I hadn't heard of love they have a really good selection, some nice colours too.
Thanks too Goawayquickly unfortunately I haven't got a Sainsbury's anywhere near me but I will have a look at some ponte ones from other shops.

teobeo if you do go with the Sainsbo's ones, maybe wait 'til next week as they usually do 25% off clothes sometime around half term.

It may even be sometime this week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks PIPinghell I'm just looking on their site now, they have some lovely things so I will keep my fingers crossed for the 25% off

New look high waists. They do sag at the knee after a while but so do expensive ones I've tried.

If you can find them Sainsbury's cor leggings are lovely. I bought a pair a few years ago and there're still going strong. Always out of stock though

I like bonmarche leggings. I'm 5'3 and an 18 and they do three different leg lengths.
They don't go see through, and the waist band bit kinda pulls my mum tum in which is a bonus! The ones I get have button detail on the ankle bit and £12 a pair I think

White Stuff, Fat Face, and Joules leggings are my go too. They've looked good for ages and wash well. WS & FF ones look identical with the waist band, and Joules were the thinest of the three, although slightly more stretch in them.

@teobeo the 25% is on from today!
