I keep on seeing girls wearing them at work, prositute legs.
It's not really my thing. i either wear normal one, or fishnets, or seamed, that's it. I once wore a blue pair and looked like a smurf, and I learned my lesson that day.
It isn't sexy.
are awesome* stop complaining
*disclaimer they are only awesome on women
^This, a million times this.
Also applies to leggings.
Luminous orange / red / yellow appears to be the fashion round these parts. Either that or my contacts are playing up.
i don't like them much. I saw a girl with a clear pair of tights on but they had like black bits that went to just over her knee so it looked like she was wearing hold-ups but she wasn't, she was wearing tights. They were a bit odd. I'm probably going to buy some at the weekend.
I want the alphabet ones..
they had little hearts going round her leg just above the black bits. I really want them now!
£8.50 for ONE pair of tights.
No thanks. I didn't even like them, they were for fancy dress.
but I quite like these. I'm sure primark will bring some out very shortly for £3.
but with a fake suspender belt on the side.
but i'd probably pay more for patterned tights elsewhere than risk getting them from primark
saying that, i've had coloured tights from there that have lasted pretty pretty long
They've lasted about a billion times longer than my M&S ones
still about £60 though. so pretty :(
they look like knee socks and then have hearts above them, a little bit like they're tattooed on the skin or something.
i need another pair, but topshop keep selling out :(
I'm going to make a little trip to the big topshop tomorrow!
£6-£12 or so.
They ladder pretty easily.
I wore the ones with little houses going around the 'stocking' bit my male friends were BAFFLED. Completely. One suggested it might be because I used to be an estate agent.
did they think that they could build a hotel on you at that point?
property ladder? i'm clutching at straws here.
no that doesn't even work by my standards. i give in.
I applaud thee.
i just googled it. i think it's something to do with "house of holland". but i'm really not convinced. "house" is probably code for muff or something.
Which, incidently, is awful. Apart from the tights.
I think I've sickened myself.
than patterned tights. I think patterned tights are hard to PULL OFF. Although I have cool skeleton ones.
What the fuck is going on Gareth Bale and the electrical tape he wears on his legs?
they have different swirly shapes, or lightning bolts and stuff on them. They're black, and distracting when walking past, as they don't conform to the boring nonsense that is usually worn.
Ask her for a stroke.
and don't call me prositute [sic] legs
it looked deliberate.
That's a really BAD word.
she was the 'gusset' of the team she worked in, haha
it's a school assembly song apparently.
in the words of 13monsters, tits or gtfo
look like something a hooker would wear.
Or a 15 year old WacKy Japanese type.
Not a fan.
Plain tights/stockings only please.
^ Right answer.
but if I wear something short then it has to be tights, so for practical reasons they're still on the list.
BUT, you know that item in your wardrobe that you think is knee-length- and it IS kneelength when you're standing, but which, when you sit down, rides right up erxposing thigh and possibly knickers too. Well, *that's* why you need to have tights in your drawer at work.
in the belief they don't ever stay up. I guess that can't really be true though. Maybe I should try them.
If they're too big or small then they might move about a bit. Primark do some good ones. After a while the plasticy bit that grips your thighs can lose it's gripping ability. They're much nicer to wear than tights.
I have some really nice Jonathan Aston ones which I've not managed to ladder yet <3 Still can't find a decent plain black suspender belt. GAH. Elle Macpherson have one but it's like £60
where do pants go in the suspender belt equation??
ONE DOES NOT REPLACE THE OTHER :D
but can you have a wee if they're under the suspenders? I don't know how restrictive it all is!
hence tiny string being best.
And BANG there goes the allure of all of that get-up.
Thanks so much!
before putting on weither belt or stocking, attach one side of each stocking (I do the back) to the belt, so you then step into stocking, attach belt and then you only have to attach the front of each stocking and saves you ahving to contort yourself to get to the back bits..
It was expensive. I don't really wear stockings; just hold ups. But I do have some knickers that have the suspender bit built in already, they're lovely if somewhat impractical.
They've had some good ones like that.
You should probably stop talking about your pants on here else there'll be a newsflash on swaths of office workers swooning at their desks
...otherwise they seem to work just fine.
If you wash them at too high a temperature then the gummy bit loses all of its adherent properties. And the bugger is that you don't really notice at first, it's only when you're getting on the train and pulling out of the station, and it's too late, and you either have to go nora batty, or hold them up through your clothes until you can get to a shop. Or do what I did in Manchester's market street a few months back, and perch against a shop window and just remove them shamelessly in broad daylight and stuff them in your bag and stride on making eye ocntact with nobody.
this is the worst. it might just be poor elastic, but it's the most stressful thing, walking down the high street, walking faster because you're totally convinced your gusset is actually below your dress hemline, the friction from walking at high speed dragging the tights down even faster, surreptitiously pulling them up when you think no-one is around and then gettng to the point where you actually don't give a shit and probably look as though your pants are falling down underneath your clothing
worst day ever :(
my legs are too long and i have slim hips so tights are either too wide on the hips so fall down, or too short on the leg and fall down.
something isn't right
it really stresses me out! finding a good pair of tights is like playing russian roulette, honestly
to stop it happening. SO uncomfortable otherwise, constantly trying to run round the corner to pull them up. happens even more when wearing heels. and cos i'm quite tall (for a girl), short stuff looks shorter on me so my hemline is higher and there is less room for error.
I remember once getting sent to school aged about 9 in a pair of my 5 year old sister's tights and I had a really Bad Day.
and walked the rest of the way home very very slowly.
next time, double pants it is. good tip. hott.
One gust of wind and all your superhero fantasies are revealed.
I think you get what you pay for with tights; 'false economy', 'cheap-dear' and all that.
Why are low rise ones so very hard to find though, they're all belly button huggers and I don't like that.
it can vary wildly which pair of tights will be off the scoville scale when it comes to gusset stress
ruined within 2 wears.
i really don't see any correlation usually.
PORR GUYS ON THE SITE :(
you really are spoiling us
I also like coloured tights.
If you want to pull me, wear coloured tights.
I like the sort of netted patterny ones, they're good
I almost have tight blindness.
It's the only way.
they are so bad or because they are so good?
wearing tights to wearing a nappy, she hates them and found them 'restrictive'. I didn't ask.
moaning about her 'ladder'. I commented something along the lines of them 'only being a pair of tights, you can buy some more' when she told she hates tights etc (see above).
If it is, it's right up there with methsles.
So I pressed post and put the kettle on.
I don't like tights.
i think they've got a ladder in them though and i can't find replacement ones anywhere :(
