When Plus Size Fashion Gets Tight!

I admit that I am not much of a tights wearer - I might prefer to flash the flesh! However as I take a keen interest in plus size fashion I know that finding plus size to fit is some what of a nightmare! Over recent years I have heard of tights being too small, the stomach areas being too lose and even rolling down half way through the way - which is far from ideal! Thankfully it seems that plus size retailers and even retailers of tights are starting to catch on that more needs to be done about it.

A few weeks ago tights retailer Pamela Mann contacted me about their tights and asked if they could send me a couple of pairs to try. They sent me some plain ones and a pair with a nice flowery pattern on - both of which felt lovely straight away. On the Pamela Mann website there are over 70 pairs of plus size tights so I can't find the exact pairs that I was sent - sorry!



The patterned tights fit me great but I found that the black ones were a little long - but then considering I am very short this isn't very surprising! Being the ever professional blogger I am, I can't find the photos I took of the tights but I will find them and upload them to my social media when I do! I found the fit to be great around the stomach area on both pairs that I was sent (I ordered the same size I would usually get my underwear in) which is something I was impressed with.  I didn't wear them for long but they felt quite comfy for the short time I wore them. I have heard that the sizing of the tights is a bit hit and miss, so maybe order one pair first to make sure they suit you!



One of the things I love about the Pamela Mann brand is the fact that they are SO keen to get plus sizes right. They have been in touch with bloggers right up to a size 36 to get their options on sizing and fits, just to make sure that the tights are as perfect as they can be.

Have you shopped at Pamela Mann? What did you think?
