- Old Navy tights actually fit!
- November 21st, 13:40
I know that finding great fat-friendly tights is one of the topics that comes up fairly regularly in this community. Old Navy has some amazing tights, but I've been afraid to try them because the size chart on the label says that size L/XL are made to fit people 5'5"-6' and up to 200 lbs. I'm a solid size 24, and I can wear their straight-size XXL tops, and I can wear some cuts of their jeans in straight size 20, but I can't wear most of their XXL pants and skirts. I can, however, very comfortably wear their XXL leggings, so even though L/XL is the biggest size in tights, I bit the bullet this weekend and bought 2 pairs for $14. I'm really happy to report that they fit this 5'8", 280-lb, apple-shaped girl quite well indeed. In fact, so far I think they're more comfortable than the We Love Colors tights I purchased earlier this season. I've only tried on the plain maroon microfiber ones, but they're plenty opaque on my 19" calves, so I think patterns would be fine. They're not baggy but they don't pinch either, and they feel well made. I'm now going to buy ALL THE TIGHTS.
