    They're the ones I get. They were 25% off yesterday so that's why they've run out.

    They're ok IMO but used to be ace.

    La Redoute, they have some good basic but good quality black leggings.

    I've got a gorgeous MnS pair. Really thick and soft with a special waist band so they don't dig in and they stay put.

    I have a very acceptable Next pair.

    Not answering the question, but I always find if I buy leggings a size or two smaller than usual they fit much better on the legs. Maybe that's my weird shape, or just that leggings are strangely baggy.

    Yeah, same here. Sometime 4 sizes smaller which makes me happy. :D

    Do you know which M&S ones you've got? Just looked at their website and there are so many.

    So, I'm a bit of a saddo but when I couldn't sleep the other night I emailed sainsburys about their leggings. :D

    They've asked me for more details about the ones I've bought and given me a 10 quid credit on my nectar card.

    They said they hadn't had any other feedback about the change so I think you should all email too. Mainly because it will make me feel less of a twat. ;)

    Don't know which ones kitty had but I've got some Autograph ones and some bog standard M & S cable knit ones which have been pretty good.

    I find paying more means things last longer (who'd have thought it :eek: )

    I like the textured ones by Sparkle and Fade from Urban Outfitters they're still going strong and I wear them to death. :D

    ok.. so I bought a dress from New Look online. Got it almost half price. I do like it and want to keep it. However, it was delivered really smelling of cigarette smoke. Is it worth following up? Last time they cocked up I got a % off voucher that had to be used quite quickly and I wasn't able to use it. Should I just wash it and be glad to have gotten the almost 50% off in the first place?

    I have leggings from Next that MIL bought me. No idea if they're cheap though.

    I get mine from Sainsbury's, Asda or Matalan then I wear them until they fall apart or I get too fat for them.

    For six quid I think that's fair enough tbh.

    I always use to get mine from Accessorize. Not especially cheap but I discovered a pair the other day that still look like they're new and they must be coming up for four or five years old.

    Leggings from Forever 21 are rubbish quality, but come in unusual colours and are so cheap you can throw them away.
    imho best quality and cheapaest leggings (for hobbit-sized mutants like me) are from Zara or H&M girls' ranges.

    Any current advice? My recent staple have been H&M but they seem to have gone to shit recently and I consequently look like Nora Batty :mad:

    I like ASOS high waist leggings. The material is soft and they are long lasting. I'm a 14 but get a size 12.

    I got some good ones from Sainsburys not too long ago, had to go up several sizes though. Otherwise maybe try La Redoute, they're on Black Friday special too.

    Still Sainsbury’s luxury leggings for me although they’re not as good they were and go baggy more quickly.
    I have to go down several sizes though in contrast to 8115.

    Peacocks last ages, as do Accessorize.

    I've given up trying to get any that will go round my fat arse and my thin ankles. I buy a few pairs at a time and spend an afternoon whizzing over them with the sewing machine from the knees down, to make them narrow.

    My favourite pair are from M and Co - similar to these but they are quite old so I can't check the label to compare, as it's faded. They have held their shape and colour and are high-waisted/long-legged.
