I bought some from sainsburys after they were recommended on here and they're pretty good (the £10 ones). They wash well and haven't gone baggy. They are pretty thick too.

Another vote for Sainsburys. 2 pairs of £10

Ooh see thats why i love mn! Our sainsburys clothes section reminds me of Bon Marche circa 1990 but i reckon the leggings may be lurking at the back by the pale pink zipthru fleeces and hoodless gilets!

Will look tomorrow! Thankyou smile

Mint Velvet - £15 in J. Lewis.

This is my 2nd pair, they don't bag or fall down, they've got a nice high waist & even seem to suck the tummy in.

I like the Uniqlo cottony ones.

Sainsburys, but NOT the two for a tenner ones, they have to be the ten pounds for one pair ones.

They come in short, regular or long length. I love them, but they haven't had my size for aaaages.

H&M £5.99 I wore them til they got holey! I must have worn them 100 times.

asda ones are pretty good too. i got some last yr, not been for a while so don't know what they have for this season.

I just bought some from next, very good. Nice and thick and the normal length was right down to my ankles (I am 5'8) but they do a long length too. A bit more expensive but they are really nice on and hold their shape (and all the wobbly bits in!).

Topshop are pretty good too imo.

I bought Sainsburys ones (the £10 a pair) and they split up the bum area.
Much to the hilarity of my DD.

I love the M&S with the wider waistband .

Another vote for Mint Velvet. They are the best I have tried, although I haven't given the sainsbury leggings a try!

So, thanks to this thread, I have bought some £45 leggings. 45 quid. On leggings! They better be good!

Boden. As recommended by MN last autumn grin Google for a code, there are always discounts!

I'm tall so need long ones and they are long enough and also, NOT see through!

GoofyIsACow Mon 09-Sep-13 23:16:30

Soz DoIt! blush grin

MortifiedAdams Mon 09-Sep-13 23:21:51

H&M. Hands down.

OiVaVoi Mon 09-Sep-13 23:29:03

they are dear (about 30 quid) but American Apparel winter leggings are the business - lovely and long and thick and extremely long lasting.

Ill report back!

Those of you recommending the Mint Velvet leggings, do you mean the ones with ruching? Don't you look like the leggings are far too long?

Yes, the ruched ankle ones. I know they're not to everyone's taste but the ruching is quite tight & not long/baggy looking.

DoitToo I tried those ones on in j Lewis on Saturday - took me about five minutes to get them up & another five to get them off! Decided that they would just annoy me, so went for the MV ones instead. The Lysse ones were lovely & thick though.

Boden are also good.

DoItTooJulia Tue 10-Sep-13 11:41:23

I had heard they were a pain to get on and off, but that once they were on, they were ok.

I bloody hope so!

Trust me Sainsburys £10.00 per pair (modal written on hanger cover)
I recommend these wholeheartedly as the only leggings to suit dd who is very chunky of thigh. They don't bag sag or become see through. I discovered them after many many mistakes smile

I was hoping to get to sainsburys before the school run but have run out of time, will pop either later or thursday. Bargain!

I bought the sainsburys £10 ones after recommendations on here and I'm very happy with the quality.
