1. Mock thigh-highs that come in a bunch of patterns so you can find an ~optical illusion~ to your liking.
Promising review: “These are so cute! Arrived on time. Fit great, not too tight around the thighs or butt. I’m 5’4″ 102 lbs., but a size 6 with chunky thighs and they fit great. Good material, very comfortable, good purchase. Will be buying more pairs in the future!” — Audree

2. Plaid tights as a reprieve from solid hues and control tops this winter.
Promising review: “I have been wearing Hue tights for years. I absolutely love them. They are soft and comfortable, not at all scratchy — yet they are tough and durable. I have a few pairs that have been with me through several seasons of wear. I have accidentally had them get mixed in with laundry more times than I care to admit and they still retain their shape, even after running through the washing machine with a load of clothes. They do not pill easily. Mine have not pilled at all and I do not always take the best care of them, though I try. One of the things I love about them is the waist does not roll and the waist hits at your actual waist, which adds to their comfort.” — Morgan Penn

colors Promising review: “I have learned not to trust buying so-called ‘plus-/queen-size’ tights online, as 90% of them are designed for 120 lbs., people and leave me looking like a sausage. But THESE ARE SO COMFORTABLE! None of the squeezing, shuffling, and crotch-tugging of other brands. Plus, they’re far more durable than I expected. When I need more , I’m definitely buying this brand again!” — R. Lehr

these, Promising review: “These are perfect! I swear I went to every store looking for maternity tights for my baby shower and for whatever reason every store seemed to only have XS in stock. I went on a whim and bought and boy am I happy I did. Worth the little bit of extra money as they are thick, not too tight on a 8-/9-month bump, and extremely comfortable. True to size. I ordered based on pre-pregnancy size and they were a perfect fit.” — EmilyV123
Rating: 4.6/5 Sizes: A–C
5. Fishnet tights with choices in the perfect pattern size for peak layering possibilities.
Promising review: “I love that these tights come with different-sized holes. I have big thighs so I love that these tights fit snug, but aren’t uncomfortable.” — Jocelyne Sanchez

6. Super opaque–control tops in a bunch of colors to liven up all your winter duds from last year.
Promising review: “Being 5’4″ and about 220 lbs., I ordered a size 4, hopeful after reading the reviews that they’d fit just right. And they do! They remain opaque throughout, only showing any trouble around the knees and thighs, which is to be expected. Loving the control top so far.” — Ashley Z.
Rating: 4.2/5 Sizes: 1–5 Colors: eight
Promising review: “They fit wonderfully on me! I’m 5’7″ and 190 lbs., and most ‘one size’ stockings I buy online are basically thigh highs. These are nice, thick, and feel great. They are very pretty, too. For the price, I’m blown away by the quality of these stockings.” — kshull123

black Promising review: “LOVE these! I wear a lot of and my wardrobe has a lot of monochromatic black and white pieces. I really love wearing bright tights to add a splash of color , and these are so vibrant! I bought the blue and the red to replace a pair I bought several years ago. These are the perfect replacement — nice and tight so they don’t fall down too much, yet stretchy enough to fit most anyone. I’m size 8-10 and they fit me perfectly. I will definitely be buying more colors .” — YakShack

11. Fishnet garter stockings as an alternative to fooling with the nonsense of an actual garter belt.
These of course Promising review: “They are super fun for cosplay and at 5’4”, 175 lbs., they still fit me well. will stretch over time like anything you buy that’s one size of this type. They are an easy intro into clothing of this sort and easier to put on than a full body stocking.” — Poovie

12. Knitted pattern tights for when you want your legs to feel as comfy as your favorite sweater.
Promising review: “Very warm, comfortable and easy to wear. It doesn’t slide down, I don’t feel like I have to pull it up. It stays put. I just wish this was thicker.” — Regular Customer
Rating: 4.7/5 Size: one size Colors: three combos
13. Spanx reversible tights in case you want some shaping *and* versatility.
Promising review: “I’ve owned these tights before, and was looking forward to purchasing them again. They are very durable (difficult to run or pull, even when worn with boots with zippers), warm enough to wear in cool weather, and the reversible option is great. I wore them recently as black tights, and the brown side did not show through at all, even when stretched and in bright sunlight. They do cost a bit more than other tights, but in my opinion, it’s worth it because I’ll get a lot of wear out of them, and they’re worth at least two pairs of tights. They can be washed and hung to dry without losing shape or elasticity. They fit similarly to other SPANX products — you don’t want to go too small, or you’ll be pulling and yanking on them constantly, but the size chart is very accurate. I was on the borderline between two sizes, and picked the larger, which were comfortable and did their job.” — myswtghst

15. Striped tights durable enough to make it through Mardi Gras, Halloween, or the perils of everyday life!
Promising review: “I bought queen/plus-size and wear size 12 pants. I was worried they’d be too big but they fit just right. They could stretch a little more so I think this would work for size 14, too. The material is not silky like regular pantyhose but very durable, because they made it all the way through Mardi Gras with no rips or runs!” — Anne Bet

Promising review: “Comfiest tights I’ve worn in a long time! Extremely soft, not too tight, and well-made. I almost forgot I was wearing them. They come up a bit shorter than most tights, but I didn’t find it uncomfortable. I bought size M/L and am 5’4″ and 190 lbs.” — Amazon Customer

under pants Promising review: “I bought several pairs of these for a recent trip abroad to wear with skirts and in cold weather. These are great tights! Very durable, even though they’ve been through dozens of washes in the machine (I don’t hand wash or use the gentle cycle). I’d buy these again.” — Elsie85

20. And inclusively sized tights with a “shadow toe” that won’t fall prey to your ancient pedicure.
These hose Promising review: “I didn’t think it was going to work. In fact, I was convinced these would be joining a drawer for of unworn, unloved hosiery. However, I really needed them to work with the outfit I’d planned and because I’m stubborn, I tried and tried and tried some more to pry these things up and over my 6′ of curves. My work paid off! that started by looking way too small finally gave in and stretched out to fit me (and hold me snugly!) once that work was done. These felt great on. No slipping, no sagging, no weirdness. I’m VERY pleased!” — PugMamaPDX
