super cosy tights



primark microfibre tights with super cosy lining

I love opaque tights, because obviously if you haven't noticed I NEVER WEAR TROUSERS! I have a box full of different pairs of tights in various deniers. I pretty much live in leggings or tights all year round. I like tights that are super opaque and really black. I feel like they slim my legs down and look really chic.

My old favourite tights were the New Look 100dens, Although I can never seem to find them anymore in their stores. I also have worn Primark 100dens, but do not do it for me at all, I don't think they look opaque enoughl! And as much as Id love to fork out for some more expensive tights, The ammount I get through in terms of holes, ladders and rips, its just not economical! I tend to wear normal Primark tights (between 20-70 den). However I spotted this addition to their ever growing hosiery section, and since buying them I cant imagine wearing anything else! They are hands down THE best tights I've ever owned! They have a really warm fuzzy lining, and they have the super opaque look of leggings but with feet. Absolutely perfect for me!

This is obviously going to be a really irrelevant post to anyone who doesnt live in the UK, and has no acess to Primark, But hey! Id really reccomend them though if you do see them! Now Im not going to say OMGZ THEY WILL NEVAAA RIP. Coz hey, even good quality tights are prone to a nasty ladder or two! I dont think For £3 as well you can go wrong really! They are cheaper than your average pair of leggings as well as keeping your feet warm!

Do you have any favourite tights? Where do you get yours from?

  3. Ohh, I think I'm going to have to buy myself some! :)

    I tend to stick to Topshop 80 and 120 denier tights but at £8 it can get expensive. Especially the amount I get through!!

  4. definatly going to go buy them! i also live in just leggings and tights so they'd be perfect x

    ReplyDelete
  5. I live in Primark tights! So cheap, and last ages! What more do you want? :) xo

    ReplyDelete
  6. these tights sound like a dream come true! I love the looking of opaque legging but hate the footless issue with open foot shoes. I also live in tights and dont own a single pair of trousers :)

  7. Think I might have to get a pair of these, seeing as all my other tights are from Pradamark. They sound perfect for winter x

  8. i luurrrvee! thick tights, i got ones similar from primark, 120 denier! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ooh, I may have to get my hands on a pair of these. They look really nice and opaque.

  11. Oooh, I'm so gonna get me some of these! Currently I'm a tesco or M&S kinda gal. I have such a problem with tights as I always end up wearing my mum's by accident when they get mixed up in the wash and she's way taller than me :(

    ReplyDelete
  12. i never wear tights :D
    never heard of people who never wear trousers...that´s funny

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'll definitely be getting me some of these! I usually stick to M&S for tights. I've basically worn M&S tights since I started primary school, but I'm MORE than willing to swap them for a cosy pair!

  14. I am so so impressed with Primark tights- they are the best I own by far. They rarely ladder! Will def give these a try x

    ReplyDelete
  15. same, i used to always buy the 100 denier ones from new look but can't find them anymore. these sound like a great alternative!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Actually, there is a Primark store in the Netherlands! I have been there once, but, it was way to crowdy!
    I get my leggings from Zara, like 10 euros! I never wear tights, actually...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like Primark or Internacionale, although I like wearing the acrylic ones (or cotton I think they are) as they are pretty cosy.

  18. Good tip - might try them out.

    The M&S ones that adjust to the climate have a decent denier/opacity and last alright too. I forget how much they are but it's a 3 pack and they're decent value.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i am the same! i don't own anything full length that i actually wear, apart from pjs ;) i shall definitely have a look at these, especially seeing as i'm going to live in canada in two weeks and i don't think even two pairs is gonna cut it :'(
    as for my regular tights, i wear M&S 3 for £8 ones, they are really brilliant quality and i would argue relatively ladder-proof!
    love B. X

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love tights as well! Though it's not quite tights-weather here Los Angeles at the mo! I get mine from tjmaxx or marshalls - they usually have the nice designer kinds but for really cheap!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm a total tights addict and have gotten most of my recent coloured ones from Dorothy Perkins which are great but I've been looking a good pair of really thick black tights, I shall have to check these out, thank you for the recommendation x

  22. i can't bring myself to wear tights that are less than 100 denier so must try these ones. also, asda are doing various colours of tights- full length and footless- between 100 and 400 denier for £4 so have stocked up for winter there :)) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  23. I get through loads of tights as well, mainly due to my dog scratching at my legs...Primark tights for me are definitely the best. If I want them extra dark, I tend to wear two pairs of 100den at a time :) xx

  25. H&M do good tights, I need them (tree trunk legs, lol!) Think they're £6 though x

    ReplyDelete
  26. ooo i have about 30 pairs of primark tights. Nom!(:
    I also have these ones from newlook, which i bought a year ago (which is pretty good to say they have no holes or anything) there big chunky ones for winter. I bought them for £5 a pair. Cant wait to get back into them with my brogues<3

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't have a favourite brand of tights, because most of the times I wear jeans >.<
    But I do have atleast ONE Primark here in Portugal haha, a bit far away from where I live now, but hey it's better than nothing.
    I do miss having one just 20 minutes away by bus when I lived in Nottingham >.<

  28. M&S woolen tights. Yes, I'm a granny at heart ha x

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooh cheers, I shall be checking these out :) I would really recommend Tabio 120 den tights though - I've had my two pairs for a couple of years now and they have ZERO holes or ladders in!! Even when my dog has caught a nail in them and it makes a little pull, if I just rub it the pull vanishes like magic??!! They're obviously pricier than the tights you'd get at Topshop, Primark, NL etc but I've not had to replace mine yet which I think is pretty damn good! xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. those are really cool indeed but I never seem to find warm tights :(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sorry, make that 110 denier, not 120! ;) xx

    ReplyDelete
  32. Unfortunaly there is no Primark in Switzerland, so I have to buy h&m ones :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. i feel the same way.
    i wear tights everyday, if i don't wear some other type of legging. i love the way they feel, the way they look...everything.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Although it seems like you've found the perfect cheap-chic solution, I'd actually recommend investing in a nice pair of black tights!
    I get all of mine from Spanx (I buy them at outlets so they're cheaper) and I swear I've been wearing the exact same pair for YEARS without getting a single hole. Miracle workers, those things are... Super slimming and opaque, too, because they're reversible.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I generally buy my opaque tights at Tesco from their F+F range, nice and cheap and usually good quality too! I do agree with you about Primark tights though, the quality is slowly improving, I would know with all the tights purchases I make weekly ;) I love Primark's temperature adjusting tights, so warm/cool depending on the weather + really comfy too! Currently partial to H&M tights though. xx

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ooh, I definitely agree, I cannot abide tights that are even the tiniest bit sheer! & I generally rob tights off my mum, because she buys herself good ones from M&S!

    xoxo.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm still searching for THE perfect tights. unfortunately I do not have a primark here...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow these sound pretty good! I will have to check these out! I usually get mine from marks and spencers!

  39. my mum bought me some asda tights the other day because my last pair had ripped (boo) and she couldn't get to primark. they're actually really good and are really thick! also i got some from m&s at the start of the school year (early september) and they've lasted me til now, so thick and cosy!

    ReplyDelete
  40. i may have to go get some of these. i usually get all my tights from m&s but recently their sizing has become a bit weird :/ ugh

  41. Discovered these two weeks ago. Best winter find ever. Amazingly warm. I cant stop wearing them. Can't go wrong couple o' quid. Primark has bigged itself up recently.

  42. I used to wear john Lewis 100denier tights. but they kept upping the price! starting at about £4-5 but now they are about £7! I would be happy to pay that, but I am notorious of catching them on something!

    I keep all my tights in a TOPSHOP canvas bag that hangs from my wardrobe!

  43. I love tights and thankfully the British weather means we can pretty much wear them all year round!

    I got some great thick tights from H&M, they really are holding up, but they aren't opaques I'm affraid.

  45. I always get my tights from Primark, don't see the point in forking out on something that will inevitably ladder/get a hole in. Not seen these before though, will have to purchase some when I go shopping next - fab post as always xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. I bought these at the weekend :) Looking forward to getting them on my feet! They feel amazing, just like leggings- love them

  47. I get all my tights from Primark too!
    My faves are an opaque grey pair I have, that are more material like than nylon.
    Next time I'm around a Primark though, I'll look out for these!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I tend to just buy really cheap tights because they never last! These look amazing, will deffo be having a look for these.

  49. Best £3 I've spent in agesss! Spotted these in Belfast but so glad the Dundee shop has them too! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thank you for this! I'm heading down to primark to get some asap!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oooh I cant wait to try them. When someone makes a blogpost solidly about a pair of tights, at only £3 you know you have to get them! :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  52. I too love tights. I would like to know, HOW do you keep them organized? I had a meltdown this morning looking for a pair in a drawer stuffed full of them. Argh*** ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love tights.. They're so comfortable, especially compared to pants. (:

  54. i also have a major love for tights!!! im so jealous you have primark as when i used to live in the uk i practically lived at primark!!! i used to come out of that store with bags overflowing, yet i still didn't manage to empty my bank account :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  55. no primark in my country, so I can't try them, but they look really cosy and lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm always on the lookout for opaque tights!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks for sharing I am a 100den tights girl too and find them hard to find I wear H&M ones but these sound fabulous value for money so I will be investing xoox

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thank you for the suggestion - it doesn't seem to matter how much i pay for tights, or where from, i still ladder them with appaling frquency..so i do tend to stock up whenever i'm in a primark!
    Although I'm liking peacocks for tights atm as well, they have some nice coloured wool ones..

    ReplyDelete
  59. Definitely gonna get my mits on a pair of these! I got a set of three pairs of tights from Marks and Spencers over 2 years ago now, can't remember the denier but they've lasted me ages and ages and I've only just found the tiniest hole in one of them! They're very opaque and only cost about £12 I think for 3 pairs which is pretty good I reckon! Check it out :)

  60. I agree with all the M&S fans! They last really well and look good. But if I'm feeling fancy I'd go for Falke or Jonathan Aston.

    ReplyDelete
  61. i find primarks tights not long enough in the leg for me..which sucks! I love M&S tights they do great coloured tights in winter for £4 and the quality and feel of them is great! they also do great wooly, patterned and lacey tights around £6-£8 which i think is ok for winter warm tights.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have tights like these from M&S, they're like 140 denier or something and have the warm fuzzy lining, but they always fall down and go all wrinkly at the knees! So I might give these Primark ones a try, its worth a go purely for how much cheaper they are!

  63. I love that it says "super cosy" on the packaging for extra emphasis! I always wondered how you kept warm in the winter; I'm already starting to freeze in my tights! I just pick my tights up anywhere I can: Victoria's Secret, thrift store (new packaging!), H&M, etc. I figure they all end up ripping anyways so why spend a fortune?

    ReplyDelete
  64. I just ran in to Primark on my lunch break to find these as they look so amazing (I hate cold toes) and I couldn't find any :-( did get some 150 denier ones which are majorly comfortable but look a little bit too woollyschooltights. Will try again when I have more than 5 mins to look!

    I used to love M&S tights but I ladder them too often, can't justify the cost - primark are the best I've found.

    ReplyDelete
  83. They are also my absolute fave & I've bought some fancier ones from Pretty Polly & mytights but Primark trumps them all!

    I'm a particular fan of the grey pair they do.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I've tried these tights before, they've lasted me ages, although I now have a big ladder in them - nightmare!
    Vivienne Westwood tights are nice swell, and they've lasted me ages!

    They have these at Forever21. I just bought them!

  86. I can't find these anywhere!
    I always find Primark are decent for the money. I can't justify spending loads on plain black tights. I really want to try these cosy ones!

  91. jesus, i'm just like you! i hate trousers, i think they feel uncomfortable and i much rather wear tights always ;) and i have about... 20 pairs of those, lol

  92. These sound perfect, im a guy and i was considering wearing tights under my jeans when its freezing outside like it is is week! I dont like long johns because they are too bulky and they dont have feet! So these sound like just what i need! Ive tired wearing thinner 'sheer'? tights under my jeans before and as much as they did the trick and did feel nice to wear..i couldnt help but feel a bit too girly. These might be better
