Here a picture of my Tights Compartment...
Confession: These are just my Spanx Tights (hangs head in shame). Actually, just my collection of Spanx Tights that are colored (digs a hole in the sand). I have a entire dresser drawer of Black tights that I refuse to mix with these. I love tights. I think my love of tights started when I was just a little girl raised as a Pentecostal Christian (no pants allowed), and went to a Christian private school where skirts and jumpers were the norm. It was tights or freeze, so tights usually won out. Truthfully, the larger I got (I was already 5'7" before middle school and a size DD bra cup), the fewer options I had in tights. While all my smaller friends could wear opaque tights, and some even had the need nerve to slay with cable-knit sweater tights, I was usually only able to find sheer stockings in Queen Size. If I was lucky, I could sometimes find a pair with polka dots. But I hated the "swish-swish-swish" sound that stockings made between my thick thighs as they rubbed together.
Forward 30 years later, and the tights that are offered to plus size women are almost limitless. Although I wear Hue brand tights for everyday wear (they are good quality, less expensive, great colors and textures, easy to find, and work well for everyday wear), when I want to really do it, I turn to Spanx (at least 3 times a week). Great leg coverage, opacity (thickness), and shapewear all in one. I consider myself the Plus size Vera Wang of sorts. She has made it very clear how fond she is of Danskin tights and leggings and wears them EVERYDAY. Just as I pledge my allegiance to Spanx tights. So I hope you don't tire of me and my tights, for they are here to stay...
