I hate to endorse them but Urban Outfitters and American Apparel have about a bajillion styles of tights.posted about 8 years ago
Well, you’ve probably tried this already, but just in case you haven’t! stores like KMart and Big W normally have what you’re after, and pretty cheap too. That’s where I got mine, and they’ve lasted me a while as well. Goodluck in finding your dream tights!posted about 8 years ago
Just look out for a pair with a high ‘denier’ number (I don’t know if that term is used for labelling tights in US though). I think the pair I have are 150 denier and they’re a bit sheer looking at the tops of my thighs and on my butt, but mid thigh downwards they’re not sheer at all.
Emilio Cavallini will have what you’re looking for, but they’re not that cheap (but then again I’ve only found them in £ prices so far, and UK is usually more expensive than other countries so they’ll probbaly be a bit cheaper elsewhere). The site is www.emiliocavallini.com it says on there to contact them to find out your neareat retailer, if you’re intersted.
If you only have sheerish ones, try layering two pairs and they’ll look opaque. And they’ll be warmer, which is a bonus during the winter!
In addition to their cheapest tights, H&M has some higher den ones that would probably be more opaque for around $10, I think.
