It's no secret that over here at Diamonds n Pearls I am always
on the hunt for good quality, well priced tights for us in the super chunky end
of plus size. I'm talking those of us a size 26+.
There are many retailers out there that claim that their tights
will fit those of us with much larger posteriors, bellies and thighs but many
of those retailers claims actually fall flat on their backsides.
This post is a little run down of top 5 places to go to get well
fitting tights for us at the larger end of plus....
up to a UK 42
These guys started out over at The Big Bloomers Company. I've
mentioned them time and time and time again and that's because I love them! I
love them even more now that they have started bringing us a variety of colours
and styles to don our pins with! Offering tights up to a UK size 42, they're a
definite place to check out!
Available up to a UK size 32
Miss Difusa is an independent retailer trying her best to
provide us plus size girlies with the best in fab hosiery! I actually have a
pair of the paisley lace tights pictured above and they are absolutely perfect!
My size 30 bottom fits in them well, they're comfortable, striking and fab!
Free UK delivery on every order too atm, so well worth a nosy!
Available up to a 6X
I'm yet to purchase from Roamans, but after noticing that they're
tights are sized to accomodate up to a glorious 400lb's, they're definitely on
my watch list to get my hands on some to experiment with! Yes, they're
international and yes shipping may be a bit pricy, but on my quest to find the
perfect plus size tights, it's no hardship for me. I will let you know my
findings! They have a great variety and are very reasonably priced, have you
tried them? Send me your thoughts!
Another American retailer I know, but they are a saviour in the
world of plus size. Offering a huge range of colours, sizes and styles they are
one of my absolute favourites to go to for a fabulous pair of tights to totally
change an outfit. If you're looking for something a bit special other than
black then We Love Colors are your guys! I have bought from them a few times
now and I never regret a purchase!
Available up to a UK 32
Last but not least, Yours Clothing. I'm quite the advocate of
these guys at the moment as they really are going from strength to strength.
With a new TV advert launched last night they're really trying to make a
difference to the offerings us plus sizers have. They're hosiery section is
growing and growing and their Lycra Xceptionelle tights got a rave of reviews
throughout the plus size blogging world not so long ago. I am still yet to give
them a try but at £8, and available up to a UK size 32, they're well worth a
Who're your faves to go to when it comes to tights?
