I think they're super cute fishnets and super affordable." —Kelly Tadge

The color was perfect for an expensive wool sweater she has been wearing quite a bit and her legs are always cold! She was surprised when she saw them, loved the fabric, and put them on the next time she wore the sweater! She liked them so much I gifted her the real blue ones I initially intended to keep." —California Native

    Promising review: "These tights are a great fit. They go really well with my sweater dresses and they keep my legs nice and warm with the chilly weather coming in! They don't squeeze my waist, the bottoms have a great sock shape to them so that my heel feels like it has a little extra padding, and my toes don't get all bunched with the thread line. I really enjoy the way these look and feel!!" —Bobbie Vint

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in XS–L and six colors).

    7. Opaque microfibre tights made with durable nylon and a matte texture to add a pop of color to your outfit.

I love how they fit and they are soft to the touch. These are a thicker tight, opaque with a hint of gloss. They keep my legs warm on the cooler days. I would recommend and buy again." —havenfun

These are 'One Size Fits All', so I was pleased they fit me at 5’3”. I didn’t have to wrestle them on, the waist landed very high but not too high, they didn’t stretch or bag, and stayed in place all night. The texture is great! They are not heavy, not thin, and not scratchy! I wore these with boots and socks." —citymouse40

    Promising review: "I am a newbie to running but have been cycling for a while and have never looked into tights for colder weather. These tights fit the bill for both! I am 61 years old and was thrilled that the top does not roll down like my yoga pants and don't ride up while running! They are easy to get on and the zippers at the ankles are a great touch! I am very happy with these tights and looking forward to my winter runs!" —Saundra Mayhew

    Get them from Amazon for $6.50+ (available in sizes S–2XL and three colors).

    23. Fleece lined maternity leggings to keep you and your baby bump warm in the cooler months.


    Promising review: "I didn't expect these to be as heavy duty and as warm as they are. I was really surprised. But they are very comfortable, the softest leggings I've ever owned!. Now we all know one size does not fit all. With that being said, they fit me perfectly, but I am in my third trimester and I'm a bit heavy at 176 lbs so I probably wouldn't be able to wear these over 195 lbs comfortably." —Jolin

    Free People

    Promising review: "I am in total love with these tights. Didn't think low rise tights existed, but ladies here they are. They do take a little long to put on, and because of the fine material you have to be careful — however, they fit perfectly. Buy these! I just ordered two more pairs." —delaneybarr3

    Get them from Free People for $16 (available in OS).

    27. Plus-size nude seamed Cuban tights with a classy feel that'll become your go-to tights!


    Promising review: "Classy and sexy! I love these! They did run the first time I wore them due to my long fingernails but I never expect nylons to last long. The cool thing was that you couldn’t see the run, it could only be felt. I bought more!" —CHCKENJEN

    Get them from Torrid for $18.90 (available in sizes 1X–3X).

    28. Denim leggings with pockets that have the jean look but a comfy and stretchy feel.


    Promising review: "These jeans are exactly what I was looking for. Lightweight, very thin (but not see-through), stretchy, but still have a jean feel and look. They're the perfect balance between leggings and actual jeans. The stretch is perfect. They bounce right back." —T. Stanfield
