However due to my job ..they soon get destroyed.!!:cry: :cry:

    I just ordered a couple of pair from here.

    I hope they work out better than some that I have owned in the past (Like Music Legs). Some of the bargain brands fit horribly. The crotch ends up down by your knees :angry: and you have to keep pulling them up all day long or they are so long that there are old lady wrinkles at the ankles :doh:.

    ^^Was that perhaps unnecessarily cold?

    My favorite brand is Donna Karan or DKNY. They seem to last forever. Hopefully these can be had in the UK ...

    Good luck, sweetheart, I know you have a hard job :heart:

    Oh my goodness...are they known to be good? Because I was going to say the Donna Karan too...I just bought them by accident and was really happily surprised...and I'm not a Donna Karan person either :D Smooth, strong and no pilling either.

    I've never ordered anything from them before, but they seem to carry every hosiery option under the sun...

    I love the classic, sexy look of the opaque stockings with a seam at the back!!
    i also wear footless tights with a lace trim, these look nice in winter with minis!
    But i also want to get some bright floral tights, although they dont fit into the place i live!! but o well....

    Wow, it sounds like you have all kinds of leg fashion going on.

    I am just not that brave.

    I just got my We Love Colors order and I am not impressed. The colors are fab to be sure but I was expecting something closer to my Danskins. These are like cheap supermarket pantyhose. I even got those little microruns just putting them on. Tights are not supposed to do that!

    Ah well, the search continues.
