I’ve been in love with We Love Colors tights since stumbling upon their site last year; to date I’ve bought nine pairs in black, white, scarlet, turquoise, yellow, royal blue and violet. So when We Love Colors contacted me for a review, I jumped at the chance.
We Love Colors offered to send me a new pair to review so I decided to try the pair I’ve been a bit apprehensive about: the splash footless tights in #7001. Lord knows why I was apprehensive about them, as the mess of colour is right up my alley. Sydney has been cold (well, cold by Sydney standards) and rainy so I decided the pair the tights with my snugly woollen jumper dress.
It’s hard enough to find coloured tights in Sydney (Australia tends to be a bit conservative when it comes to fashion), let alone in plus sizes, so We Love Colors is solid gold for me. The size chart is very reliable; I am 5’8″ and 210 pounds so I wear the C/D in the plus size range. The tights have an extra panel at the back and this is a godsend for the well-endowed in the arse area (like myself). They come up extremely high – mine go all the way up to my bust – which prevents them slipping down over belly rolls and completely eliminates muffin top. However, you must buy the nylon/lycra blend; the cheaper, nylon only pairs sag around the ankles and knees.
AWESOME NEWS FOR ANTIPODEANS: We Love Colors, in recognition of the southern hemisphere’s seasons, is offering free shipping to Australia and New Zealand on all orders over $30. This offer runs all winter long – from 1 June to 31 August – just enter in the code WELOVENZAUS at the checkout. It goes without saying that my tights collection is going to be absurd by the time spring rolls around.
