If you are tall and size 18+, where do you get 40 denier tights from?

I used to swear by the M&S extra tall/fuller figure ones but they stopped doing them a few years ago. The X Large ones just aren't long enough.

I am 6'1 would love a pair of thick black tights to wear under a skirt, instead of leggings. Have tried all sizes of the Evans one but they aren't long enough. Long Tall Sally ones are too tight.

Have any fellow lofty ladies found any?

Boots do tights for tall/fuller figure. I'm not as tall as you (5'8), but they seem pretty generous in the length

The M and S XL ones are fine for me but I'm only 5'9 so I guess that's why. Can only suggest going on a site such as Tights UK or Tightsplease which seem to cater for every shape and size. I've used both and been pleased with service.

Try Levante in a Tall size from tightsplease. They are looooooong!
