I have to say since I’ve been writing this blog the question I see from my readers over and over again is where to find tall tights that don’t wriggle down to your knees nor cost the earth. I have been researching and am going to share with you my 3 favourites.
Highstreet – When you’re in a hurry or you’re not an online shopper the best of the highstreet brands in my opinion is Marks and Spencer. I have also tried H&M and Next but these are my favourite. I usually buy an XL and hope the extra elastic will stretch, they take a little maneuvering and I dread going for a wee and having to re position them but at £8 for 3 pairs they are great for everyday wear.

Tall retailer – I bought myself some tights from Tall Girls UK some time ago they fitted well, but for me they are way too thin. If you like sheer tights you can buy a 3 pack for £8. However if like me you want more than 15 denier to keep you warm then you’re looking at £8-£15 a pair which when you’re wearing them 3 times a week and as clumsy as me is a little overpriced. I still think these are better for tall legs than any high street brand.
Wild Card – like many tall women I have been searching for good tights for some time now. I came across a company called LM Glow on twitter. They make tights purely for tall people, they don’t have a big range but I thought I would try the tights. They have some of the strangest packaging and so called marketing I have ever seen but these are by far the best tights I have ever worn. I found myself lunging around the office in shock that they weren’t gradually heading for my ankles. I can’t vouch for their claim to stop you ‘sweating like a horse’ but they were really long, didn’t move all day and had great support. They are £4.99 a pair Click here to buy them.
