1. Comfy plus-size colors that'll please babes who weigh up to 375 lbs!!!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have learned not to trust buying so-called 'plus-/queen-size' tights online, as 90% of them are designed for 120 lbs., people and leave me looking like a sausage. But THESE ARE SO COMFORTABLE! None of the squeezing, shuffling, and crotch-tugging of other brands. Plus, they're far more durable than I expected. When I need more colors, I'm definitely buying this brand again!" —R. Lehr

Price: $17.95 (available in sizes A/B–EE, 22 colors)

2. Mock knee-highs — they come in a ton of styles (including cute Kawaii-inspired animals) in case you're on the prowl for something fun.

FYI, reviewers say these run small.Promising review: "These are so cute! Arrived on time. Fit great, not too tight around the thighs or butt. I'm 5'4" 102 lbs., but a size 6 with chunky thighs and they fit great. Good material, very comfortable, good purchase. Will be buying more pairs in the future!" —AudreePrice: $7.50+ (available in 21 styles)

3. Fishnet tights (including bedazzled ones!) as your not-so-secret layering weapon with your distressed jeans and skirts.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love that these tights come with different-sized holes. I have big thighs so I love that these tights fit snug, but aren't uncomfortable." —Jocelyne Sanchez

Price: $5.99+ (available in six styles)

Also check out some colorful bedazzled fishnets.

4. Cheerful plaids for those who are still trying to emulate Blair Waldorf's style or maybe folks who are just sick of solids.

Promising review: "I have been wearing Hue tights for years. I absolutely love them. They are soft and comfortable, not at all scratchy — yet they are tough and durable. I have a few pairs that have been with me through several seasons of wear. I have accidentally had them get mixed in with laundry more times than I care to admit and they still retain their shape, even after running through the washing machine with a load of clothes. They do not pill easily. Mine have not pilled at all and I do not always take the best care of them, though I try. One of the things I love about them is the waist does not roll and the waist hits at your actual waist, which adds to their comfort." —Morgan PennPrice: $7.97+ (available in sizes 1–5, 17 patterns and colors)

5. Fishnet garter stockings as an alternative to fooling with the nonsense of an actual garter belt.

Promising review: "They are super fun for cosplay and at 5'4", 175 lbs., they still fit me well. These of course will stretch over time like anything you buy that's one size of this type. They are an easy intro into clothing of this sort and easier to put on than a full body stocking." —PooviePrice: $8.95+ (available in seven styles or a two-pack)FYI, here are some classic crotchless fishnets.

Promising review: "These are wonderful stockings. They are very warm and soft. Can be worn under pants or with a dress or skirt." —TGPrice: $12.99+ (available in five sizes, nine color combos)

7. Or colorful AF thermal tights that'll keep your disposition bright when the forecast is dreary.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought several pairs of these for a recent trip abroad to wear with skirts and under pants in cold weather. These are great tights! Very durable, even though they've been through dozens of washes in the machine (I don't hand wash or use the gentle cycle). I'd buy these again." —Elsie85

Price: $7.75 each or a variety of pack sizes (available in 16 combos)

8. Opaque control tops you can rely on for a pop of color without revealing that bruise on your knee from where you ran into the TV stand. Again.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Being 5'4" and about 220 lbs., I ordered a size 4, hopeful after reading the reviews that they'd fit just right. And they do! They remain opaque throughout, only showing any trouble around the knees and thighs, which is to be expected. Loving the control top so far." —Ashley Z.

Price: $5.35+ (available in sizes 1–5, 10 colors)

9. Plus-size reinforced toes to help prevent that dreaded morning incident of poking your piggies through your last pair of clean tights. Oof.

Promising review: "Finally a comfortable pair of pantyhose for a plus-size woman! Generously sized enough to be comfortable all day, but didn't feel like they were going to bag around my ankles, (they didn't). The suntan is a nice, natural color and didn't have any problems with them snagging, though they're fine enough that you're really only going to get two to three wears out of them even with hand washing in a lingerie bag. They're priced right though, so that really wasn't an issue for me." —redheadPrice: $2+ (available in sizes 3X, 4X, and three colors)

10. Sparkly numbers for puttin' on the glitz.

Promising review: "I wanted something that would make me stand out in any party I would go to and this does the job! The glitter on the tights definitely does not disappoint. Like wow it really does shine, especially in the light!!! I paired it with a tight dress and a flowy dress and I am shocked to say that it went with whatever I was wearing! Other glittery tights did not give me the same satisfaction." —LexiePrice: $7.50+ (available in three colors)

11. Lacey lewks to provide a smidge of leg coverage before the mercury drops like it's (so not) hot.

Promising review: "They fit wonderfully on me! I'm 5'7" and 190 lbs., and most 'one size' stockings I buy online are basically thigh highs. These are nice, thick, and feel great. They are very pretty, too. For the price, I'm blown away by the quality of these stockings." —kshull123Price: $1.99 (available in four colors)

12. Spanx reversible tights in case you want some shaping *and* versatility.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I've owned these tights before, and was looking forward to purchasing them again. They are very durable (difficult to run or pull, even when worn with boots with zippers), warm enough to wear in cool weather, and the reversible option is great. I wore them recently as black tights, and the brown side did not show through at all, even when stretched and in bright sunlight. They do cost a bit more than other tights, but in my opinion, it's worth it because I'll get a lot of wear out of them, and they're worth at least two pairs of tights. They can be washed and hung to dry without losing shape or elasticity. They fit similarly to other SPANX products — you don't want to go too small, or you'll be pulling and yanking on them constantly, but the size chart is very accurate. I was on the borderline between two sizes, and picked the larger, which were comfortable and did their job." —myswtghst

Price: $26.40+ (available in sizes A–G, seven color combos)

13. Fishnet patterns to liven up your tights wardrobe while getting some major bang for your buck.

Promising review: "These are a great bargain and great variety! I purchased these to wear over my solid leggings, great quality and these should last a while. These fit as expected for me. 5'2" / 130 lbs. / curvy." —NixPrice: $21.99+ for a six-pack (available in sizes S/M–3X/4X)

15. Floral vines that'll wind up your stems in the prettiest way possible.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable these are. I've had fishnets before, and they weren't even close to comfortable. I can hardly tell I have these on — no binding or pressure on the feet. I LOVE them and hope to be able to order more." —Maureen Pimley

Price: $19.99 (available in two sizes, three colors)

16. ~Shaping~ tights that won't make you feel like you're stuck in sausage casing all day.

17. Semi-opaque tights for some seasonally approps coverage while still showing a lil' leg.

Promising review: "These tights are fabulous! I ordered the M/L and after reading several of the reviews I was worried they would be too small. I am 5'6" and weigh 170 lbs. and the M/L fit like they were custom-made! The fabric is very soft and stretchy, but I had no sagging anywhere even after wearing them for 12 hours. I highly recommend these tights!" —Kelley L. SaundersPrice: $12.90+ each or a variety of pack sizes (available in sizes S/M–XL, several color combos)

18. Colorful microfiber tights that'll get you from work to play to cosplay and beyond!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "LOVE these! I wear a lot of black and my wardrobe has a lot of monochromatic black and white pieces. I really love wearing bright tights to add a splash of color, and these are so vibrant! I bought the blue and the red to replace a pair I bought several years ago. These are the perfect replacement — nice and tight so they don't fall down too much, yet stretchy enough to fit most anyone. I'm size 8-10 and they fit me perfectly. I will definitely be buying more colors." —YakShack

Price: $2.99+ (available in two sizes, 15 color combos)

19. Striped lookers durable enough to make it through Mardi Gras, Halloween, or the perils of everyday life!

Promising review: "I bought queen/plus-size and wear size 12 pants. I was worried they'd be too big but they fit just right. They could stretch a little more so I think this would work for size 14, too. The material is not silky like regular pantyhose but very durable, because they made it all the way through Mardi Gras with no rips or runs!" —Anne BetPrice: $8.95+ (available in two sizes, 19 color combos)

20. Cozy knits — they may just feel like your coziest sweater in (almost) pants form.

Promising review: "I wear tights year-round (even in the summer) at work because my office is quite cold. These particular tights really hold up in washes compared to others. Even after one year, they still look good. I have gotten from other stores for less and some for more. And these are the best." —AobPrice: $17.99+ (available in two sizes, several color combos)

22. Or some inclusively sized shimmer tights for a sheen that won't require passersby put on sunglasses.

Promising review: "I didn't think it was going to work. In fact, I was convinced these would be joining a drawer for of unworn, unloved hosiery. However, I really needed them to work with the outfit I'd planned and because I'm stubborn, I tried and tried and tried some more to pry these things up and over my 6' of curves. My work paid off! These hose that started by looking way too small finally gave in and stretched out to fit me (and hold me snugly!) once that work was done. These felt great on. No slipping, no sagging, no weirdness. I'm VERY pleased!" —PugMamaPDXPrice: $5.50+ (available in sizes medium, tall, petite, 1X/2X–5X/6X, and seven colors)

23. Argyle sweater tights to help you get your pattern fix in a professional setting.

Promising review: "I really like these leggings. They are well-made, thicker material, and not see-through like most of the cheaper brands. I am 5'7", 142 p, my shoe size is 8–9. they fit me perfectly to my size. I got M/L and am glad I didn't go any smaller. If I had thicker thighs I'd go for a bigger size. Only thing I wish was different is if the pattern was completely to the top so I could wear shorter sweaters." —Melissa WootonPrice: $15.50+ (available in sizes S/M–L/XL, nine color combos)
