I'm wondering how ppl conceal love handles from tights? I recently lost alot of weight bh, still have some to go, but I'm feeling great about myself until I put on my stockings. It looks so bad Sad
Any tricks?

I’ll only wear thigh highs for this reason. And I’m thin.

I'm very tall, control top doesn't go all the way up, it still leaves something hanging out...

Did you try sizing up so it goes up higher instead of hitting you there?

That is one reason why I hate tights. The waist makes me look pregnant. I rather wear a shaper and knee his.
The sales person in the tights store might be able to help you find a brand that has softer gentler top part of tights, so it doesn't create a fold or handles.

My bra is not the problem, I have a great one that doesn't show any bulging.

I guess thigh highs are the way to go, but don't they roll down?

Pull the tights up to your waist? Isn’t that where they are supposed to sit ?

Your tights are too small if you're having love handles or a muffin top

On my waist, or anywhere really, the bit of fat I still have to lose hangs over/bulges out.
Do you have to be a size 0 to where tights??

The tights you are wearing are too small.

There are different sizes of tights. Find the right size for you and if on the edge of the range, then choose larger.

I hated wearing tights when I didn't have the right size. Once I resolved that, it was so much more comfortable and I liked how I looked better.

I’m a size 16, and 6 ft tall and I don’t have my love handles sticking out of my tights. The tights go up very high , and I’m high waisted. If anything , the tights act like a girdle and conceal my love handles.

I'm not exactly the same dimensions (I'm shorter), but the rest is the same for me---re: girdle/love handles.

No. Tights should actually be helping to make you look thinner and hold the bulge in. No matter what size you are. You are wearing them wrong or wearing the wrong size .

Can I ask what size and brand tights you wear? I'm not the same dimensions but it will give me an idea. Thanks

I am being helpful. I’m letting you know to get new tights. Then you will feel even better about yourself because they will make you look and feel thinner. I’m sorry if this is somehow offensive to you.

Berkshire 3x-4x , Melas Queen 1 and the brand that they sell in Bingo to fit me the best . The Memoi tights are too short for me.

My mother is similar to me in height and weight and she finds Levante to fit her best.
I think it’s a trial and error thing until you find the right fit.
