Thick, 'shape wear' opaque tights

(9 Posts)

I'm after the most flattering opaque tights please.... I used to get some amazing black ones from M&S that were 'tum, bum and thigh' shape wear ones, basically holding all the lumpy bumpy bits in! They gave an amazing silhouette and were also really comfy. Can't seem to find them anymore though, plus I also fancy some tights in different colours.

I don't really like opaques that don't feel 'snug' or that don't 'smooth' though (is it high Lycra content?)

Any ideas what I can try please? Thanks smile

Manzi The Tights on Amazon

Snag tights will give you loads of colour choice but I just don't find them as smoothing and controlling as the Manzi ones. The Manzis can come right up below my bra and smoothed and contains my wobble really well.

I know exactly the m and s ones you mean.
I’ve struggled to find them too.
I’m wearing a pair from next. They come up to my bra and definitely help me feel smoother. 100denier, although I’m sure they do thinner ones.

Are these the M&S ones?

The Primark ones are pretty bloody good plus last 10x longer than m&s ones!

Snag are amazing.
