I have skirts! I have dresses! I have boots!

I have no tights. Anybody have any suggestions for affordable sites for plus size leggings? I don't want to drop a lot of money on them since I'm only looking at needing them for a couple of months.

I highly recommend We Love Colors. I have their yellow/black and green/black striped tights. They're not those sweater tights that get popular this time of year, though, just normal tights.

www.roamans.com has a good selection of plus size tights, in many colours.

Target sells Assets brand tights -- it's a division of spanks. I have their tights in Black and Brown -- they last forever and are a really thick smooth fabric. I recommend them!

I am going to play "devils advocate", no offense intended, but ask you why do you need tights?

I'm old, back in the 80's, tights were a big fashion deal.

Tight leggings and big chunky sweaters were the norm.

To be honest, did not look good on anyone.

In confession, I do own 3 pair of running pants, much similar to tights. I wear them to run in, under wind pants, when it's cold and they double as long underwear when it is really cold.

Just in my thoughts, they are a needed article of clothing, not a fashion statement.

They are getting popular again. Go out in public, watch, do you really need them? They don't look that great!

I'm guessing the tights are to keep warm while wearing skirts/dresses since she mentions skirts/dresses. I don't wear skirts/dresses during winter for the most part but sometimes I wish I had tights under my pants.

I think tights can look great if worn correctly!

Staying on topic though I found some black tights at walmart from Just My Size.
