Laura’s Leggings: The Ultimate Guide to All Things Footless

falke-cotton-touch-footless_1Whilst leggings will never occupy the same space in my heart devoted to tights, I can’t help but notice they are selling like hot cakes of late, which is why I have thrown in my two-penneth on the subject and come up with a round-up of the best footless tights and leggings, whatever the occasion…

Classic styles will take you from day to night with ease and go with pretty much everything you own. So when the wind is howling and the rain is lashing against the windows, reach for the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Thermal Opaque Footless Tights, which boast a sumptuously thick 200 denier design and a fleecy lining to keep you extra warm and comfortable.  However, if it’s multi-coloured legs you crave, the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights are available in over 15 shades at an exceedingly purse friendly price! They also come in a plus size version, but if you find the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless tights a little too light, you could also take a look at the Cette London Plus Size Leggings for a comfortable fit for curves in a 60 denier.

For extra comfort the Falke Cotton Touch Footless Leggings contain high levels of cotton, keeping them breathable and cosy. Super soft, these luxurious leggings will keep your legs warm on even the bitterest winter mornings and provide a great fit. But if you’re the type of girl who wants it all, you will adore the Spanx Look at Me Cotton Leggings, which contain an impressive 64% cotton that is extra thick for superior coverage – plus, with the tried and tested technology that has made Spanx a global name, these leggings will trim any tummy and shape that bum.


If after all these choices, you’re wondering what is the difference between leggings and footless tights? Well, the simple answer is thickness! Leggings tend to be thicker than footless tights and this means that you can wear them under a shorter top.

I adore products that prove that there is no need to sacrifice comfort for elegance. Perfect for the workplace or an elegant evening look, the Trasparenze Lituania Leggings provide both in spades thanks to their matte finish and range of classic colours. When you are dressing up for one of those extra special occasions, the Trasparenze Push Up Leggings are an excellent choice. This magical pair lifts and enhances your derrière, leaving you looking stunning in that slim fitting dress.

If you are after an all-encompassing coverage for bums, tums and thighs and want to make sure that your silhouette stays seamless, then the Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings are divine. Providing stronger control, you can wear these deluxe leggings as trousers thanks to their super thick design – with all the in-built benefits of Spanx. The thick generous waistband and medium level of control means that they will feel comfortable to wear all day, and no centre seam ensures that no unsightly lines ruin your outfit.

jonathanaston-polar-mainPrefer your legwear to make more of a statement? Fashion followers take heed, the Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings are ideal for providing that leather look that is tipped to be on-trend in SS14. These leggings are very Olivia Newton-John, however, we recommend matching these lovely leggings with a fluffy white jumper instead of a full leather jumpsuit à la Olivia!

If snakeskin is the one that you want, the Trasparenze Mystery Leggings feature a subtle snakeskin effect. To complete the whole animal kingdom (and if you’re feeling particularly brave) we also have Pamela Mann Leopard Footless Tights, in a bold monochrome design. After something to help you stand out from the crowd on a Friday night? Our Wet Look Leggings by Pamela Mann are for you. Sublime and shiny these leggings would match perfectly with black high patent heels for a glamorous, head turning look. A glittery alternative for disco worthy legs are the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights – perfect for fans of all things that glimmer and shine.

I find Spanx’s range of leggings absolutely sublime for the gym, and the Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant allows me to keep fit in style. Their medium control ensures keeps us feeling comfortable and svelte during exercise, providing plenty of flexibility – after all that is pretty important on the treadmill! The moisture wicking technology makes sure that you stay comfortable and hygienic while you work out, and the icing on the cake (or granola bar) is the curved seam for a flattering shape.

Last but definitely not least, the Country Kids Capri Tights are suitable for kids from 3-11. They contain high levels of exquisite Pima cotton for both comfort and quality and are available in a range of colours including pretty pastels. Or if your little princess is more of a disco diva, obsessed by all things that glimmer, the Country Kids Sparkly Footless Tights will most definitely impress even her discerning eye.

So whether you love leggings for sport or for fashion, for the office or just for the kids, there is definitely something here for everyone – even myself!

Until next week…

We’ve got a crush on Liv Tyler!

Whether you adore Liv from her time spent as a rebellious daughter aboard an oil rig during apocalyptic blockbuster Armageddon (pass the tissues please) or you know her best from her role as part-Elven Arwen from Lord of the Rings, there’s one thing that’s pretty clear cut. We have a crush on Liv’s legwear!

Showing us all how to work hosiery in the Big Apple, the raven haired beauty took to the streets of New York on her 36th birthday, teaming her floral romper with a pair of oh so chic black footless tights. Flaunting her never ending long legs, it seems that Liv has given us a serious case of hosiery envy back at MyTights HQ, leaving us searching for the perfect new addition for our wardrobes…

Liv Tyler

From plain to patterned, demure to daring, there’s bound to be a pair for every occasion. If like Liv you adore flirty hemlines but fancy a little more coverage during the day, footless tights are just the ticket. Offering the same lightweight feel and look as your opaque tights & sheers but with the versatility of no feet, footless tights are a hosiery drawer must have. What’s more, they go under just about everything and anything, transforming oversized jumpers and tees into acceptable dresses and even acting a secret layer underneath trousers when the chill sets in.

To get Liv’s exact look, treat your legs to the 3D Footless Tights from Pamela Mann. With just the right amount of opaque, the soft & stretchy fabric reveals just a sneak peek of leg below. Ideal for styling with rompers and playsuits a la Liv, the Pamela Mann footless tights add a little touch of demure to even the shortest of hemlines. For a dressed down day time style, take note from Liv and wear your footless tights with sweet ballet pumps and matching cardigan but when the sun goes down, experiment with sky high heels and an elegant cocktail dress.

For those with an adventurous streak, we’ve got just the footless tights for you. Packed full of safari chic and big cat charm, the Leopard Footless Tights from Pamela Mann work to inject a little fun into an otherwise understated outfit. With the lack of feet making sure that anything from peep toes to pumps is possible, these will keep your hosiery dreams alive for more than one season. To keep your look as far away from fancy dress as possible, avoid any other animal print, instead introducing a small heart or polka print for a nod to Burberry’s AW13 collection. C’est chic!

And of course, whilst some of you may stick religiously to your head to toe uniform of black, we understand that there are some rainbow worshipers out there who would adore a colour pop. Transforming dreams into a colourful reality, Italian brand Trasparenze have created the Dorella Footless Leggings. Available in more colours than there are days to wear them, the 70 denier footless leggings come in a range of fabulous shades, from the neon brights to jewelled tones. Even better, these are perfect for taller ladies (just like Liv!), as the stretchy fabric stretches up to 6’1”.

So with more than enough options to get your footless collection off the ground, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more fashion inspo from the lovely Liv!
