In yesterday’s outfit post, I was wearing my We Love Colors Vertical Stripe Thigh High tights, and I thought I’d throw up a review of them since they’re an online company, so you guys might want to see their merchandise in action.
The tights cost $12.50, plus $5.00 shipping, so all told, I spent 17.50 on tights, which seemed a little high to me at the time, but since I had read in the fat girl blogs how great We Love Colors are and how well they fit a fatty, I decided to spend the money for experiments sake. Now, unlike their tights, the We Love Colors thigh highs do not have sizes, which was sort of a tip off, but I was curious to try them out anyway.
First off, I want to say that they shipped just a few hours after I ordered them. And that they arrived within a couple of days.
Out of the box, the tights were thicker than I had expected, and much sturdier feeling than the Target tights I own. They were lacking in stretch which worried me, but they’re silky and flexible, and feel like they could make it through quite a bit of wear and tear. They also looked like they could be warm. There is no discernible heel on the tights, which I liked because then I don’t have to worry about the heel pooch showing up on my calf, or hanging over my shoe like they sometimes do.
I could easily pull the tights up around my thighs, which are 21″ in diameter, and at first I felt like my original worries were overrated. But with walking around, the tights began to roll down like old lady stockings.
So the only solution was to scrunch them down below my knee.
And while I enjoy the baggy look, and will most definitely be wearing these tights again, I’m reluctant to spend another $17.50 on it.
I think that a thinner person could have a lot of fun with these tights, they’re high quality, and would be worth the money for someone with less meaty gams. But for a fatty like myself, they’re a no go, and that really stinks. I will say that as soon as there’s a We Love Colors XL Thigh High, I’ll be the first in line to buy.
