These are some Size 2X 100% polyester tights I bought from Torrid this summer. The stretch comes from the fact that they are woven. They have a different sizing scheme since I wear a 4X in Tops and 5X in dresses and a 28 or 30 in pants at Torrid.
I love them. I had been looking for something a little abstract in a plus size without much luck. I find them difficult to wear unless I am wearing all black so that is a little limiting, and the lace skirt and top from Torrid were probably a little too “lacey” for the abstract cotton looking leggings. Still looking for the perfect outfit.
The bracelets came as a set from Torrid also. I love bangles and they are often too small for me so this really makes me appreciate Torrid.
How does the waist fit? I’ve found plus size tights to be hit or miss, sometimes the waist elastic is too giving, and they slip down as I move around, sometimes too binding, and they create an uber-muffin top.
They are a perfect fit. They stay up, they are snugish at the knees and ankles. These are footless and sized 1 2 3 or 4. Not the 1/2 or 3/4, which do not fit me but might fit you. They seem to have quite a few this winter.
I want to say again that these were size 2 and I am usually a size 28-30 in pants.
Interesting that you brought this up, I am about to put better elastic in a pair of stockings I fell in love with but had no stretch at the waist so I am going to try adding elastic. I will let you know how it works.
Tip for securing tights that fall: wear boyshort undies or bathing suit over the top. 😉
What a great idea, I have never thought of that. Thanks as always.
