      No, I buy from snag tights, no connection, just a customer.
      They are designed for all body shapes including larger ladies, and taller ladies too.
      They have a good sizing chart. They fit. I can’t seem to get the length in a store.

      I found the one size tights didn’t fit me, I have more to using XL size ones – being 6ft 4in tall andΒ large dress size they fit me just right πŸ™‚

      I know you hate tights Stephanie, but I can’t holdups to stay up, so what has a girl to do?

        Elizabeth, I had the same problem with holdups/thighhighs until I found (Jobst It Stays Roll-on Body Adhesive} works great, a wet wash cloth will remove any residue, enjoy your holdups.

      I’d avoid “one size fits all” tights.Β  If they do fit, they probably won’t fit well.Β  Buying better quality hose in the correct size for your body will give you the best fit and the most comfort.Β  Standard sizes don’t exist unfortunately.Β  If you wear a large from one manufacturer, you might need an extra large from another manufacturer.Β  Even different product lines from the same manufacturer could have different sizing.Β  You just have to rely on the size chart for each pair of hose you buy.Β  If you’re between sizes, it’s almost always best to go with the larger size.

      Hope this helps.

      I see you’re from the UK so I’m assuming when you say tights it’s what we call pantyhose in the US.Β  I’ll use the term tights in that light.

      I have found problems with tights that are not sized correctly.Β  Sometimes you can’t stretch it over your crotch to your waist.Β  Sometimes (for me, my waist and hips are the same size) the waist is too low (a woman’s waist is by her belly button, a man’s is below it).Β  In either of these cases, they tend to fall down (I have no hips to keep it up) and have to wear a girdle on top just to keep it up.Β  I also have found that because my stomach is larger than a woman’s, the top of the tights tend to roll down.

      So I find you need to size it correctly to go up and over your midsection.Β  It shouldn’t be so taut against the legs that it will rip going to the loo or just moving your legs the wrong way during the day.Β  I’d avoid the one size unless your height and weight fit in their range

        Thank you Alison for clarity regarding tights US tights are different and I equate US tights to be worn for Yoga… I love pantyhose.. my favorite are Hanes reflections β€œbarely there”… I feel so feminine with a skirt or dress above the knee to show off my most feminine asset my legs.. sorry for being so vain..

      Dear Elizabeth ,

      I am 183 cm in height ( about 6 Feet ).

      I always buy XXL ( or XL Pantyhose if they don’t have a bigger size ) .
      Not all the brands have the same size tables , so I always check the back of the package
      when I buy them in male mode in the store.
      With the Height/Weight Table I usually can pick the right size for me.

      Love Sylvia.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      If you’re a tall CD go for a tall size. Β If big and tall with athletic legs a big/plus size should work better. Β Most brands have sizing tables for weight and height guidelines. Β Use those as a starting place

      Find your size, buy your size girl.

      You said that you’re 5’7″…ok… how much do you weigh?(I don’t actually want to know)

      If you’re 5’7″ and weigh 120lbs, the tights will fit one way.

      If you’re 5’7″ and weigh 220lbs, the tights will look quite different.

      Figure out your correct sizes and buy those sizes. It might take a little trial and error, keep the receipts and return stuff…Β  my Prime membership on Amazon has saved me tons on returns….

      Have fun out there,

      XOXO

      Rayna

      “One Size” clothing usually comes in the wrong size.Β  In working out my women’s wear sizes, a great resource has been thrift stores.Β  One can try a likely size without paying a fortune, just always remember what fits and who made it.Β  One can find nice items there with few hassles.

      One size will never fit me. I need at least size C/D in tights and pantyhose or size large in leggings that are extra long

      Just as the right size bra fits better I think tights would be similar (not as important as a bra but still size does matter, LOL, never thought I would use that phrase in this context).

      Hugs, Liara

      I buy plus or queen size. During the winter I live in them.

      Be safe. Love and Peace.

      Didn’t know they came in Queen size, Amber.

      One size is for an average size woman. You are 5’7″ so should be okay. As you can see from the replies there are girls here who are 6′ or more so they would not be a fit.

      I used to buy XL but the problem is the thicker part at the top tends to drop below my hemline…. OK longer skirts would help, but no!
      I’ve started buying large, but various shops and makes vary slightly.
      I’m 5’10” in my stockinged/tighted feet and a size 16 UK (skirt size).

      Hi Liz!

      I always get XL.

      I’m five-ten and 215 lbs, so I’m at the outer-edge of XL when I look at the size charts, but most tights that size fit me just fine!

      “One size fits all” isn’t for girls with my extended (distended?) girth.

      Oroblu 5MX (their version of XL) fits me like a glove! Wolford, Filodoro and Elly are generous too for big gals!

      Hugs! Barb 🤗

        Well said Barb!! l love the honesty

        l’ve been wearing pantyhose for many years 50+ and the best advice l can give is when you find your size be it A,B,C,D
        S,M,L XL buy the better quality Secert Leggs or good store brand names Β not the bargain brand I have done both and good quality pantyhose the correct size will long outlast the bargain brands and will make your legs look much better 💕Wendy

      I usually try to stay away from one size fits all.Β  I find they tend to be on the smaller spectrum.

      I buy tights that have size charts.Β  I have a bad habit of buying too large size, so after a few wears it tends to stretch out too big.

      I am 6″ 175LB and I wear XL for the length. One size are cheap and prone to runs (ladders), and tears. Size chart are very accurate.
