Five OOTDs, and a We Love Colors review for fatter fats.
( Wow wow wow wow wow wowCollapse )
Frame of reference: I'm about 5'9", weigh something over 300lbs, and wear between a 24 and a 26 most of the time. Comments/criticism are fine.
We Love Colors: I never bothered to order the original plus tights, as I knew I'd hate them for being lycra-free. Plus I was pretty sure they wouldn't fit anyway. So I was pretty excited when We Love Colors started talking about making better plus size options. I finally ordered some of the new nylon/lycra tights in anticipation of the fall, and I'm really pleased with them. They seem pretty colorfast (I handwashed mine), and the size E fits me perfectly - even better than my Avenue tights, which I've relied on in Boring Colors for a few years now. I wore the tights pictured above for a full day and had no problems with them getting saggy or stretched out or falling down (as I've heard were common problems with the old non-lycra tights). They are actually really comfortable.
For $15, I'd like them to be a tad thicker, but that's a minor complaint all things considered. Also, the colors on the site and the colors of the actual tights are a little off; this could be a monitor issue, but still, the "spruce green" tights above do look pretty obviously teal to my eye. Overall I'm mostly thrilled to have a reliable resource for good, comfortable brightly-colored tights.
