Okay so first off let’s throw it back, when I was around 15/16 years old, I loved going to the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham. I was into fashion, shopping and runway it was the perfect day out, and it was there I discovered Pretty Polly. Their tights were everything I wanted, quirky, pretty and fun! But after a change of direction in my life, and with online shopping still being a bit scary for 16 year old me… My love for PP had tragically ended.
Until… A couple of weeks ago when the team from Pretty Polly contacted me, I was so thrilled to collaborate! The thing is with this blog is I always want to be open and honest, I love to work with brands that I love, and think you lovely lot will too. But there was one question on my mind, did Pretty Polly do my size? Did the brand cover the plus size community? My questions were soon answered as I received a few lovely pairs from their curve range that were perfect for jazzing up day to day work wear! Their range has a good size scale and there are so many different unique styles and patterns.
The first pair I put to use we’re the suspender look tights, I received these in their ‘one size’ and to my surprise, the fit was pretty good with no sliding down or rolling over. I then paired these up with a cute pair of their sparkly socks to enhance my work wear. When matched with a little skirt and flats this was an outfit I can wear any day of the week, plus its comfy but also super cute for Spring.
The second pair sent to me were a little more edgy than I’m used to. Fishnets you say? Absolutely, and I’m converted. With a pencil skirt and pair of flat shoes this is a quirky look for day to day, although I chose to pair them with a pair of killer heels for a more naughty, date night look. These also came in their ‘one size’, and the stretch and the quality of these tights is incredible, with no worries of catching or tearing at all.
And last but certainly not least, the most retro, the most classy, the most right up my street tights. The nude, back seam tights. These came in the size M/L and if I’m honest I could have sized up for comfort. But the sheerness, the softness of these tights? Just wonderful. And the back seam? Ever so vintage.
Pretty Polly has a pretty detailed size guide, ensuring you can find the right pair for you straight away. Although I wasn’t too keen on their size guide including weight as a measurement I do think their height and size guide is very helpful. Starting at XS to a XXL. So there we have it, my round up on tights for thicker thighs.
