Ive tried loads of places (M&S, matalan, next, bhs, etc) and actually found Primark the best. They are a perfect fit for me (5ft 1- M &S ones are far far too long, event he small) and they have lasted so well.

My favourites are black opaque ones with an argyle pattern. That was last winter but assume they still do them.

If you want a pair to last forever and look great, Wolford tights are great - I paid £18 shock but they've outlasted anything else by a long shot

yep - wollford will lsat forever. Other than that M&S or H&M have good ones.

My Wolfords are in their 3rd year and still look great.

DD has some very thick opaques from Topshop - 100 denier and they are still going strong.

thanks, what denier do i need for totally not see through?

notamumyetbutoneday Wed 21-Oct-09 15:23:30

60 i think. 40 is still see through if you cross your legs eg, its see through on the knee bit, IYKWIM.

yes agree 60. 40s will be slightly see-through

60, minimum, Wolfords for sale at John Lewis if that's any help, also tightsplease

Primark! They have 100 denier for £2 a pair and mine have lasted a good while.

I got some Calvin Klein ones from TK Maxx that are notably better than my Primark or Tesco ones.

Can I slightly hijack and ask about best place/make for hold-ups? (Opaque/patterned) - good lasting rubbery bit? grin

Tesco do some glossy ones which are good under woolly dresses.

I have some Autograph cashmere ones that I've not tried yet. They are also available in a yummy purply shade.
