Today I am wearing purple tights and they are totally UNFLATTERING
You get a very different picture of your body looking down from the top of it - have you any full length mirrors in the loos you can look in? Bet you they look better when you see the whole outfit together, and you're not just gawping at your not-normally-purple legs.
Agree that they need to be super-thick. Mine are from accessorize and they are the darker less 'vibrant' purple colour called plum or something. The thing is, they are also a bit on the short side for me and so sneak down from waist to hip creating unflattering lines under dresses/tops etc (long leg syndrome)and only come in one size. Think may have to go someewhere else for my next pair of purple tights.
