Good quality leggings and tights

  1. I'm looking for some quality leggings and tights. I also want a waistband soft enough that it doesn't cause the dreaded muffin top :blush: since I'm hoping to wear them under some very fitted dresses. I'm 5'7'', usually wear a 2-4, and can't seem to find a good fit. I've heard falke and wolford are decent but I wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations on this forum since everyone here is so knowledgeable and discerning. Does anybody have any favorites? Thanks a lot.
     
  2. I was just about to recommend Falke & Wolford.....of teh two I prefer Falke slightly more as the fit is better for me
     
  3. The easiest way to get around the waistband problem is to wear stockings and a suspender (garter) belt.

    The other option is to get something like Spanx, which are designed to smooth everything out and some of them sit a little higher.
     
  4. Wolford tights definitely!!!

    I just got some Splendid leggings, they're really nice and soft (no muffin top whatsoever). However they aren't very thick so they may be a little see through in the back.
     
  5. Wolford is awesome! They are kind of pricey but worth it.
    I also own Splendid leggings which are okay but I wouldn't buy them again ($50.)
    Suprisingly Lauren Conrad has some nice leggings in her line. I love those.
    Then just on the cheap, I picked up a couple from Nordstrom in the BP department and like them too.
     
  6. Spanx
     
  7. I want a pair of thick legggings..

    My favorites are Falke the waistband is comfortable, on the cheaper side I also like the Nordstrom house brand.

    Not a fan of Wolford, they fit me weird. The crotch sags and they are too high waisted for me.

    ETA: I have a pair of Cotton Donna Karan tights that I love, so comfortable for fall/winter. But the cotton is starting to pill after one winter of use.
     
  9. Falke and Wolford no doubt!
     
  10. I can add that the american apparel thigh-highs have great quality and are a great alternative to tights!

    I agree with the Falke, and Wolford but I recently just purchased some leggings from a line called LNA. They have zippers at the bottom, and caught my eye because they different; they're also a little cheaper than Falke, 109.00

  12. definetely Spanx because they have the added bonus of slimming your hips and butt! Spanx makes your ass look smooth and perky, it's great.
     
  13. I haven't had much experience with leggings yet, (but i am def going to try them), so I can't really help you but you might be able to find a nice pair of tights or leggings if you browse around on www.mytights.com
