Leggings - I need a recommendation for the best please
I am 5 ft 10 and size 12. Would like black/grey leggings that are full length without the crotch hanging down to my knees. Ideally high lycra content to prevent any knee bagginess, and wash well. Will pay a reasonable sum for the right pair (but I am not a banker so no silly prices please..)
The best pair I have are from Asda, they were £6. I thought i'd get a cheap pair to see if i'd actually wear them, and wasn't expecting them to be up to much, but they're fab They are fairly long on me. They don't have a huge lycra content (but some of the pricey ones don't either) but I can wear for whole day with minimal bagginess.
I love the American Apparel ones, but I have to say after only a few wears/washes they are already a bit patchy on the knee/thigh area!
I'm 5ft 6in and they're a really good length on me, no crotch sagginess and nice high granny knicker waist.
Any other recommendations? Am looking for a pair that looks really dense black if you see what I mean and that don't go baggy saggy at the knees. Like notyummy am willing to pay for a good pair that lasts but not crazy £££££££
