I'm going 'home' to Scotland for Christmas and need some warm tights to wear with a dress. Can't afford Falke.
Are M&S or BHS thermal tights any good?
TIA

Primark do some that are lovely and warm, microfibre lined, really thick and soft inside, about £4.50 a pair.

Thanks!
Can I get them online? Won't have much shopping time when we get there...
Have googled and doesn't look as if Primark do online sales.

I just got some fleece lined rights from Dorothy Perkins, think they're by pretty polly. They are so snug and feel fab on (look like normal black opaques). Can highly recommend!

I got the M&S Heatgen tights and they were pretty warm.

Another vote for Primark.

Am currently sporting the cosy footless tights. I also have the cosy regular tights. Very warm. I sometimes overheat at home, and have tp whip them off.

Primark ones are nice and warm, but I find that they do bobble quite quickly.

Linea (House of Fraser) you will probably need to size up - I got my regular size (S) and they come down quite a lot.

I got some great ones from Uniqlo, not cheap but they've been through the wash several times and no sign of bobbles or shrinking, also come in funky colours.

M&s versions poor quality and wear out quickly IMO

Thanks for all the feedback. Will look into all these ideas.

I got the Tesco Ultra-Cosy ones. They are indeed cosy, but there is absolutely no shape to the feet/ankles so they have to be worn with boots to hide the baggy cankle effect...

Don't ge tthe John Lewis ones. Lovely and warm but the stitching at the waist has no give. They cut me in two.

<<head swimming emoticon>>
Baggy ankles, guillotine waistbands, bobbly legs, worn out tights.
Maybe I'll stick to trousers. wink

I always go with Uniqlo for things like this.

Primark better than the M&S ones, IMHO, and half the price!

Yeah, the Tesco ones are warm but remove all traces of ankles. The Asda 300 denier ones (rather than the fleecy/thermal ones) are warm and very cheap. Wash well and you still have ankles.

I find all M&S tights are crap.
