I love tights but between thick thighs and stiletto nails, I've always had a difficult time finding a high quality pair of tights that fit and didn't rip on the first wear. I spent all of last fall/winter avoiding looks that would require tights but I decided this year to tackle my tights dilemma. I decided to pose the question of where I could find tights in a 4X to my fellow plus size babes. I hoped that there was an indie brand I could support in the process. The response came back overwhelmingly in favor of one brand in particular: We Love Colors.
One browse through the website of family-owned We Love Colors and I saw every color pair of tights I could imagine (50+ colors to be exact). My gaudy heart fell especially hard their hand-dyed splash tights. My wheels quickly turned as I planned outfits in my hand featuring these tights. I got inspired to make new pieces and reinvent items from my existing closet. When I tried them on, I found that they fit both of my criteria, they fit comfortably and were thick enough that they wouldn't rip easily.
