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.posted over 7 years ago
Any muted color too…
as long as you avoid white/horizontal striped tights/bright neon colors…I think you’re good.

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!posted over 7 years ago
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. :)posted over 7 years ago
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.posted over 7 years ago
the lace might be something i want to try, but i sometimes find myself staring at them at stores. and thinking for a long time.
but thanks for the advice y’all.posted over 7 years ago

are we talking flat or high-heeled shoes ?posted over 7 years ago
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.posted over 7 years ago

I am pretty sure that the term “pumps” only applies to closed-toe, closed-back high-heels.posted over 7 years ago
^^ i’ve never heard the word “pumps” used in conversation before. Sorry, i assumed it meant a flat shoe.posted over 7 years ago
Maybe it’s just an American thing? Or maybe it’s just because I’m old :]

according to wikipedia, “pump” means a high heeled shoe in America, but a flat shoe in Britain.
how strange!posted over 7 years ago
^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.
