I have been trying to find nice opaque tights (solid or patterned, but solid preferred) for someone my height (5'10") and weight (180, US size 12 pants) and have been so far unsuccessful. I bought a few pairs that according to the packaging should have fit, and they would have if I was several inches shorter so I have had to resort to the nude or off-black pantyhose I have (queen size for size reference) or knee socks (which I'm not a fan of) for now.
I know a lot of people talk about We Love Colors but $15 seems steep to me for something that I know I will probably get a run in very quickly (though I would consider this if they are really durable and very opaque) as that's just my luck.
So I would love any recommendations from all you lovelies!
EDIT: Thanks for the replies ladies; still looking for more online ideas in case my shopping trip tomorrow isn't successful.
