Review: A Collection Of Plus Size Tights From UK Tights

If you’re anything like me, tights have always been a difficult thing for me to wear, because of my height, dress size and big feet!

I’ve also never seen any that match my skintone, so have only ever been able to wear black ones, which don’t always go with all dresses and skirts I would love to wear in the winter!

So when I noticed UK Tights sell a range of tights that can meet all of my above needs, I had to give them a try…

The Range I Was Sent To Test By UK Tights

The Range I Was Sent To Test By UK Tights

The Gerbe Ethnic Tights (15 denier) are for people like me from mixed parentage families. I have a light brown skin, and tested the Peau Bronzee shade.

I was pleased they come in a range of shades, both lighter and darker than my skintone, and when I tried them on I could tell they were of very good quality. They felt lovely on my skin, and they matched my skintone very well, to the extent that when I looked in the mirror I didn’t look like I had any tights on, which has never happened to me before.

They are also seamless and have an invisible waistline which were even more bonuses, so they will definitely be products I wear in future.

I was also sent a couple of pairs of tights from Pamela Mann, which is a company I have reviewed before and also loved. I tried the Pamela Mann Heart Seam Tights (Denier 28) which are gorgeous, if a tad fiddly to get the seam line straight! These will definitely be ones that I shall be wearing with my vintage-inspired dresses, such as my ophelia dress, as they complete the look well.

The Pamela Mann All Over Sheer Bow Tights (Denier 15) were more of a quirky style, with little bows all over the black tights. These I already have in mind to wear for an upcoming Halloween party, so watch this space!

I also got to review the Naomi and Nicole Amazing Light Adjustable Rise Thigh Slimmer. This is something I shall be using a lot over the winter months, especially when Christmas parties start to appear on my calendar, and Christmas food appears in my tummy! I loved how they smoothed my stomach out, never mind my thighs, so they will be going on under my dresses from now on.

They have great elastine which gripped my body well, so when I was walking it didn’t ride down at all unlike some cheaper brands I have tried in the past.

So all in all, I was very pleased with the selection UK Tights sent me, and they are definitely going to be a website I shall be using from now on for tights, stockings and leggings!

Pamela Mann Footless Tights

Due to my lovely, long feet I do not enjoy tights. Even as a baby my mum had to cut the feet off my babygrows, because whilst the legs fit perfectly, the feet were always way too small for my flippers. 

So I was pleased to see that Pamela Mann offer a pretty extensive range of footless tights in LOADS of designs, from classic to bold and even multicoloured. 

They kindly let me try a pair to see how I got on, and I love them!

They are a good quality material and I love the retro, but funky design that my pair have. I tend to ladder mine within the first few seconds of wearing them, so was very happy that I have worn them a couple of times now and they have remained in tact! I have had a lot of compliments when wearing them from some rather cute guys so I’m definitely going to be purchasing some more! 

They have tights, leggings and footless tights with some going up to an impressive size 32, and I noticed they currently have a pretty good sale going on!
