just wondering if there’s any other type of tights that looks slimming to legs.

because i’ve been wearing black opaque tights for too long.
not that i don’t love it, just want some varieties.

advice??

I think all dark colors will be slimming, also things with a vertical pattern/texture—like stripes or just lines. Dark sheer tights can be slimming too.

Any muted color too…
as long as you avoid white/horizontal striped tights/bright neon colors…I think you’re good.

Maroon, brown, greys, navy blues….ect.

Surely something that is different but not too loud will look slimming too because people will be thinking ‘good choice in tights!!’?

I recently got a dusty blue pair of lace tights. And i definately do not have the smallest legs ever. I still love them and the size of my legs doesnt worry me at all!

like somebody else mentioned, vertical stripes will DEFINITELY lengthen and slim your legs. in fact, just vertical ribs help a great deal. and of course, dark colours. :)

I think matte tights in dark colors are universally flattering.

I find that tights with a lot of shine, on the other hand, can be unflattering.

I think there is nothing sexier on a lady than a fitted sweater dress and a pair of cable knit wool Wolford tights in slick pumps.

I love textured tights, they make me feel like im wearing a little bit more clothing than I actually am. I am nervous to try any tight though out of the neutrals. i saw some pretty cool betsey J tights in like a violet purple but…I just don’t know.

I am pretty sure that the term “pumps” only applies to closed-toe, closed-back high-heels.

^^ i’ve never heard the word “pumps” used in conversation before. Sorry, i assumed it meant a flat shoe.

Maybe it’s just an American thing? Or maybe it’s just because I’m old :]

pump (pŭmp) n. A woman’s shoe that has medium or high heels and no fastenings.

according to wikipedia, “pump” means a high heeled shoe in America, but a flat shoe in Britain.

how strange!

^That’s so odd! I’ve noticed it though, my mom always talked about how she used to love her “pumps” when she was in her twenties, but when I browse on British websites they have a “pumps” section and they’re flats.

I love language.
