How to choose leggings.

How to choose leggings.

asked
I want to try the leggings, tunic and high boots trend, but I am overweight so choosing the right legging is important. I have the boots and tunic. What types of leggings are available? I would like one that is not so thin but has some "holding and shaping" power. Any suggestions?

I agree with the spanx suggestions. I wear them myself and really like them! Other than that, try on different ones, because I feel that they all really differ widely. Choose one that has some stretch, is not too thin but not too thick as well.

Thanks all... I went to Norstrom Rack and they had some Spanx Tight-end Tights on sale. I got the footless in black and the reversible in brown and black. They are a bit thin for winter but perfect for the rest of the year...and holiday parities! They look good...

Spanx for sure! Also, try some cute sweater tights. They are a bit warmer than regular tights and look really good with sweaters/tunics.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. Nordstrom is near me so I will check them out. I love my Spanks too so I will give them a shot. I have a new pair of black boots and an older pair of brown so I think I will get 2 pair of leggings...one in each color. Thanks for the advice! Appreciate it!.

I completely agree with @jchalk and @colormered......Nordstrom hoisery department sells alot of cute leggings, even the sweater tight leggings which are fun. The prices are very reasonable too.

Depending on the color of your boots I think that having a black boot with a sheer black tight looks best. There are a few that provide sheerness or a pattern but also have that "shaping" power. My top two would both be my Spanx. The first is "Trinket Tights" that have a fun festive pattern the other are called "All the Way" and are more basic. Either are great but I think the brand is the best in the industry.

Have you ever tried leggings by Spanx? They are built for comfort and tummy control and are really high quality! A little expensive, but they will last a long time. Here's a link and a pic...good luck, I'm sure you'll look great!
