Hey Dudes & Dudettes…. Happy Thursday peeps!
I am sure you saw recently I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity to review some tights from the Pamela Mann plus size range (see my post here)… Well, I obviously didn’t do a half bad job as they only went and offered to send me some more! This time some patterned tights to spice things up a bit, and if you keep reading, there is also a sneaky little giveaway!
If you didn’t already know, Pamela Mann now have a large range of their tights in sizes 16-32, which is amazing for us fat babes, and I have to say that since I have been fit testing for PM, it has reignited my passion and love of tights! We are no longer limited to just the plain tights, cos that was all you could get in our size, you can now really funk up your look with some amazing prints & pattens….. and I’m loving it! That little black dress has never looked so flippin awesome….
So here is what I was sent this time, please bear in mind that I am usually anything from a 20-26 depending on where I shop, to give you an idea on sizing:
Mauri Print Tights, available online in 8-14, however these are a size 20-26. If I am honest, I probably wouldn’t haven chosen this print by choice, but seeing them in the flesh, and on, I really love this print, and I can picture these with a pair of denim shorts…. If I ever get over my issue with shorts (I so want some, just not sure the tree trunks could carry them off….). The fit on these, like previously with Pamela Mann, fit so well in the body. They come up to my waist, sometimes just under my boobies, which is just the way I like it. I am so sick and tired of not being able to get tights past my foof, so another bit thumbs up for me on that one. I have found that these did wrinkle around the knee or ankle over the course of the day, but that just comes with the territory of being a midget, I’m not sure I will ever find a pair of tights to bit both in the leg and in the body, and I would prefer they fit in the body and I have to keep re-adjusting the wrinkles.
Second up are probably one of my all time Pam Man faves…. Ditsy Floral Print Tights. Again, they only appear to be in the 8-14 online at the moment, but I was sent these in a 28-32.
I did not really notice much difference in the sizing with these from the Mauri, all much the same in fit, high waisted (thumbs up), had to keep an eye on the wrinkles, but all in all pretty damn amazing, and I really do like this print… again, I can see these with dresses, skirts & shorts…. Maybe I will get me a pair of shorts…. Mmmmm…..
And finally, Sheer Side Slash Tights. These ARE available online in the larger sizes, right up to 28-32!!!!
I really really really like these tights, I am just hoping that my clumsiness doesn’t kick in and I do something to them as I want them to last FOREVER, so they could be a high days and holidays wear only. I was sent these in a 28-32, which was a good call…. These I would say do come up ever so slightly on the small side, and you can see with my chunker-chunk thighs they are put under some serious pressure compared to the model on line…. Heehee, but they are AMAZING. Again, like with the others, they come well up the belly, and these didn’t seem to wrinkle as much, maybe the difference in material.
One of you lucky lot can get your very own pair of Sheer Side Slash tights in Black and in a 28-32. Unfortunately, because I am still limited to a WordPress hosted site, I cannot add Rafflecopter like you can on blogger, but as with my previous giveaway, follow the link and the rest is simples!
