PLEASE NOTE - this post is NOT sponsored and I'm not expecting anything in return!
I try to avoid wearing dresses because I hate wearing tights - for one reason - they NEVER fit, anything big enough for thighs has meant a gigantic top that comes up right over my bra and then falling down to wrinkly at the ankles like Nora Batty..........Not a pretty sight.
I wear leggings and tunics (shorts in summer) most of the time and only
possess three dresses - one black and white dressy cotton for summer weddings or funerals, one
simple cornflower blue long dress for summer BBQs or similar occasions and one navy and
sparkly bought for Son's winter wedding.
When the new WI Life magazine arrived (that's the national magazine for WI members) it had an advert page for Snag Tights................Tights that finally fit!
I had a look on line and they have photos of real people wearing their TIGHTS with their height and what size they are wearing plus a chart where you decide what body shape you need for your height. So I thought I'd send for a pair, more in hope than expectation. They are not cheap like you could pick up in a supermarket if you are a "normal" shape, but on the other hand if they fitted it could open up a whole new world of things I can wear.
They do all sorts of colours (takes me back to the 1980s when I was thinner and often wore green or red tights)I decided to go for the thicker tights for winter, in navy blue. They arrive promptly and came in a thick paper envelope and inside wrapped in tissue paper, no plastic anywhere.
Now I need more dresses!
