Happy Saturday! It’s Tights Time Again!
Yeah, okay, we thought we’d talked about tights enough last week. But I did mention that I had three pairs of tights gifted to me by Snag Tights. Last week was some plain black tights, but this week is all about patterned ones. And I’ve got clothes on this time!
I’m trying to push myself out of my comfort zone a lot at the moment with style, because I’m in a bit of a rut recently. Not that a pencil skirt is particularly uncomfortable for me, but with being a bit mentally skew-iff it feels it. I’ve been getting a bit self conscious recently, so having a wander around Soho in the rain was pushing it a little.
Saying that though — goddamnit I love this outfit! The little top is from Primark, and my skirt is the best £5 I’ve spent on Boohoo. It’s just a really good skirt that looks good with so many things, I’m wearing it regularly at the moment.
So what’s the significance of Snag Tights on this post, Melody?
Glad you asked, body-less reader! I’m actually wearing the Diamond Age tights with this outfit, although from far away you wouldn’t particularly notice.
I took the same size for these (F) that I did with the plain black tights from last week’s post. I mentioned briefly in that post that the plain tights fit wonderfully, but purposely left out these babies. I’m sneaky like that.
So looking at the page for these tights, off the bat I think I should’ve sized down. Unlike the product page, the diamonds aren’t as visible or prominent as the site model. Since she’s smaller than me, I can’t imagine that they’re too small for me.
This makes a lot of sense, because unlike their plain counterparts, these like to roll down! It was a little disappointing, because last week’s pair were so comfortable that I genuinely forgot I had tights on. Sadly these ones needed to be hiked up a lot — and you can tell in some of the photos. When you’re wearing a pencil skirt with a tummy like mine, having your tights cut you up across the belly isn’t ideal.
None of this is to take away from how great the tights are in general, however. They’re still soft, still matte, and the gussets, waistband and seams are all incredibly comfortable. A lot of people commented about worries with chub rub and tights, and I can honestly recommend that these don’t do that, even if they are too big!
I’m still wearing them, because even with needing to hike them up, Snag Tights have become my absolute favourites! I might have to get the size down and an extra pair of the wave tights, because having some patterned black tights can really add a little extra flare to a typically ‘boring’ outfit.
Sizing Suggestions for Snag Tights?
Snag are doing some pretty great things, clearly. Their plain tights are absolutely spot-on with sizing, but definitely size down in the patterned tights to get the best fit. It’ll show them off the best, too!
