It's that time of year, ladies - I'm freezing my butt off in dresses at work. Every year I go through the same struggle of trying (and usually failing!) to buy TRUE plus sized leggings and tights. Not "oh here, we added 2" of length, now they're plus size!" - I need more room in the waist and butt and thighs.
Does anybody here have a US retailer they like a lot for these? I need to find a style that fits and buy them 20 times in all the colors.
I'm not sure if you're in the US or Canada or UK.
I'm in Canada and I get my tights from Addition Elle, and We Love Colors http://www.welovecolors.com/
their tights are true plus size tights and are a good quality. Leggings I tend to get from a Canadian' store called Ricki's but I've purchased leggings from Torrid in the states, lane bryant. Because of where I live (aka coldest place with a large population) I usually wear leggings with long underwear underneath, and knee high socks. with boots.
I'm a size 18 and buy most of my work clothes that aren't pug from Dorothy Perkins (UK 22=US 18) Asos (they have a US Asos Site, but because I'm not in the US I order from the UK Site and actually order a size UK 18 or UK 20 which is actually a US 14 and US 16 as their clothing runs large) another website for plus size tights/leggings is called Simply Be. they are a UK site, but have a US specific site and their stuff is great.
other plus size resources for tights I've found to be Evans.co.uk (UK plus size retailer), and actually ebay.
yeah I've heard that can happen w/Asos. I haven't had that problem.
for wide calf boots, I would suggest www.duoboots.com
they are hand crafted, wonderfully made and all leather. I own three pairs and I love them
they're great and don't lose packages :)
but usually there is a customs fee because they are expensive, but provide free shipping to the US.
they have an outlet site. www.duoboots.com/outlet
I have about an 18 inch calf and go with the 46-48 cm width.
