    :hello: Hey there,

    I've found myself really liking the thick woolly patterned tights that people seem to be wearing at the moment (I saw some gorgeous ones yesterday with that sort of 'golfers' pattern - you know with diamonds) but I have long long legs (instep is something like 35 inches) and I struggle to even find regular tights that fit. Does anyone who is similarly tall know where I can find some lovely patterned tights that will fit me and not be down round my thighs the whole time??? :woo:

    I don't know of any off hand, but the pattern is called 'Argyle' which may make your search a little easier at least? :p:

    Ah yes I knew I knew the word
    Well that makes tracking some down a bit easier, but it still doesn't help me much with the long-leggedness - the thing about tights being, you can't try them on until you've bought them!

    My legs are 33" and I fit in to the medium Topshop tights, so the large should fit alright. According to the back of the pack, the large fit people who are 5'10, no mention of leg length though.

    Mmm this is the problem though. I'm just over 5'10 and tights that are 5'6 to 5'10 or whatever are really for people who are 5'8 and won't fit you as 5'10 until you've washed and stretched them 3 or 4 times

    Just a thought, patterned footless leggings are also out there, that might help a bit with the height problem, I dunno.
