It appears tights are in again this fall..? Don’t know about you, I hate wearing tights! With the weather starting to get chili, I am seeing them everywhere. What are the best tights for the price that will last more than one evening? One of my girlfriends said she got a pair at H&M for $5.00. Any other suggestions? Thank you

if you hate tights, why are you wanting to buy them? You don't have to follow any fashion trend. You can set your own trend.
I, on the other hand, love tights. But then I'm one of the people here who loves wearing pantyhose
Tights are great!! I've never been a leggings fan but tights make the legs shapely, keep you warm, you can wear them under anything!! I will wear tights under a long shirt or short dress instead of pants. Tights are cool.........

Me, too! They are soooooo uncomfortable! You DON'T have to wear them!!!! And if you have any "cottage cheese" on your legs or butt-- NEVER, EVER wear shiny tights!!! It will only emphasize the irregularities of your legs!

Tights less than $5 are not tights, but stockings [not made well]. Good tights will go for at least $20 and can be worn multiple times. I like crazy tights with designs. AlexBlake or Nordstrom, as well as many other stores carry pretty tights. Yes, tights come by height and size, so get fit properly and you won't have the issue of tights slipping down your hips.

There was a store in Grand Central in NYC, I can't think of the name, but I loved stopping by and checking out their tights.

Are you talking about tights, as in stockings? Just the other day I saw some packages of pantyhose at a store and wondered if women still wear them. Such an impractical, uncomfortable, and wasteful clothing accessory. Two or three wears and you're guaranteed a tear or snag. Into the trash.

I bought a pair of novelty stockings a couple years ago (for fun) - I bought the XXL fat lady size because I'm tall (not fat). When I got home and tried them on they didn't even stretch up past my mid-thighs. What a joke! I called the store to complain and they refused my request for a refund or exchange because I had opened the package. Pissed, I cut the legs off and wore them on my arms to make my own fashion statement.

Like the others have stated, why would you wear something you don't like? Because everyone else is? Baaaaa.
