WLC tights - I guess I don't need a crotch...? Update 11/29
colorful_horror wrote in fatshionista
Hi fat folks!

How are you all doing? I'm new here. :3

So, I've been rather frustrated with We Love Colors tights. I do love the colors and the texture but I ALWAYS get a rip in the crotch. Sometimes it's just a small hole I can deal with but yesterday my medium blue tights were completely destroyed in the crotch area. HUGE holes and just ripped all over that area. For 15 bucks? C'mon! And I kind of want the crotch in my tights...

I know I am sometimes too rough with tights and pulling them on but with these I was very careful. Is this happening to others as often? ALL of my WLC color tights have ripped within the first few wears. I am not sure why I keep buying them... maybe because of all the colors. I have a spruce green pair coming which I think I might just return.

I also don't think it's a size issue. I buy A/B and it fits rather well. I could try C/D but I think they'd be to short for me. 

I've been trying to search for tights in my size in tons of colors. I do love Hue tights but trying to find anything above a 3 in something other than black is very hard. I do wear black tights more so that's okay but I want colorful tights! I am not sure where else to go. :( 

Are they any other tights that come in such a huge range of colors? Or even half as huge? Lol

For reference, I guess? My size/weight:
height: 5'4" 
weight: 210ish
size: US 16-18, XL. On the top and for some dresses sometimes 14 L.

Hi all, I just wanted to update and say I got the sample size C/D and they fit well!
I have only worn them once so far but I like them :)
Question: why does this one have two seams in the front? Size A/B did not.

if it were me with this problem, i'd size up before i gave up on them altogether.

this.
I'm 5'1 and anywhere from 210-225 and take a C/D in We Love Colors and have never had an issue with ripping in the crotch or ripping in general. I'm guessing the issue is they're tearing from strain, thus you need a larger size.

Yeah, I've found that WLC tights rip really easily in the crotch. All three of my pairs developed holes after the first wear, which is pretty ridiculous, since I have a pair of black tights from Target that I've had for five years that have only just developed a hole in the toe area. I doubt it is a size issue, honestly. I'm a 20 on the bottom and I wear the C/D size and I can easily hike those suckers up past my boobs.

This is also my experience. They all rip within 1-3 months of wear. They're definitely not too small for me.

Not sure what to tell you about WLC, but have you tried Woman Within's tights? They don't have 50+ colors, but they've got a hell of a lot more than most plus-sized brands.

I think I have tried those and found them to run super small. But I had read that in the reviews and went up 2 sizes. They were still small but not too bad.

I wear the 6X, but my hips would fall under a 5X. However, my height and weight are basically right on the 5X/6X line. IIRC, I sent the 5X back because they were too small for me to try and break in. They seem tight because of the weaving, I think, because I had to wrestle the 6X on the first time or two, but they've been fine ever since.

I was just talking to a friend about having this problem with WLC!

Email them! I had a pair that ripped the first day I bought them, and they replaced them pretty quickly. I would also try going up a size, just in case, because I have never ever had a pair rip in the crotch, and I have like 15 pairs of them. But maybe that's why; because I rotate them out.

I usually have this problem with tights, but not with the WLC tights. I have very big calves and stomach which usually makes my tights sit weirdly and rip, but the WLC ones are the right shape for me. Maybe try a different size?

This doesn't help you in terms of color selection, but I recently got a pair of tights from Avenue and I'm VERY impressed by them. They're the most comfortable tights I've ever worn, and they've held up well to some rough use.

Colors = black, silver, brown. No fun colors, sadly. They're 2 for $20 right now.

Thanks! I have tried these. They are alright. Not my favorite but still great quality.

happens to me too, and mine def. fit properly.

fibrotex.eu have a comparable range of colors to WLC. here's a review of them: http://fatshionista.livejournal.com/7395479.html

Colorful_Horror,

First I would like to say that we are sincerely sorry for your aggravation. No one wants a pair of tights with holes in them unless they are intentional or fishnets. Please send an email to emem@welovecolors and info@welovecolors.com with your order number, full name and mailing address. You will receive a sample pair in size C/D first so you can see if you like this size better. We will resend you a pair of the A/B in the color that you chose if you think the A/B is a better fit. I am pretty sure that you may have just received a defective pair. We are sorry for the inconvenience that we have caused you. We hope to hear from you soon!
