Plus Size Tights: The Supersize Edition


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....

 Milan Lady 20 Denier Coloured Tights - £8.95// The Big Tights Company
Available 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!

 Paisley Net Tights - £6.99// Miss Difusa
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!

 Big Diamond Tights by Comfort Choice - $17.99// Roamans
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!

 Plus Size Lycra Footless Tights - $16// We Love Colors

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!

Lycra Xceptionelle Tights - £8// Yours Clothing
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 look.

Who're your faves to go to when it comes to tights?
