Tights test!

Tights test!


Official hibernation mode has been activated.

You all know what that means…your legs will rarely see the light of day for the next four months at least (and sales of women’s razors have plummeted!) But also that bobbly tangle of tights in your drawer needs updating.

We are here to help! We have done a quick survey around the office to bring you our top tights that are strong, soft on skin and dependable just like our anti-perspirant deodorants.

Marks and Spencer’s

Not a surprising brand to have on our list; M&S have been supplying underwear since the 1920s. Our brand manager Lucie swears by these 40 denier double pack, soft and comfortable at £3 they are almost unbeatable value. The only negative is after a few machine washes they become a little bobbly!


These days you can buy almost anything from a supermarket including your hosiery! Our very own glamorous receptionist; Kelly thinks these 60 denier tights are the ones to beat at less than £1.50 per pair they are cheap as chips and according to Kelly as strong our 48 hour anti-perspirant deodorant.


Jenny from finance can confidently say after years of buying these tights never once has a ladder or hole appeared! (And she lives with a cat that thinks legs are an appropriate scratching post). Silky smooth, well fitting and keeping an almost new quality wash after wash, she gives these tights a top review.

At £5.00 per pair these are the priciest on our list; but come highly recommended.


Team leader Haley is always on the hunt for a bargain and loves the huge selection on offer at Primark. From sparkles to spotty Primark has it all with a great range of patterned and novelty options available if you want to make a statement!
