Rated 2 out of 5Â by lzk1 Just not great
The shade of these was the most disappointing thing, they were more "strong-cup-of-tea" than what I've come to expect when I purchase "natural" tights. The weave on them was poor too - all in all they just seemed cheap quality.

Compared to the other maternity tights I have tried, these are great. Once I figured out that you have to wear them with the two bands in the front, then they stay up and unlike other brands, do not ladder on the first wear. I just wish I could get them directly in store rather than have to order them.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ros40 Need two pairs per pack to have a chance of getting one wearable pair!
I have bought Debenhams tights (admittedly Jasper Conran) for many years now and recommend them to all my friends as being excellent quality and lasting through wash after wash. I will definitely go back to them after my maternity.
As a result, I didn't hesitate to buy maternity tights from Debenhams. Unfortunately, the first two pairs didn't make it to a second wearing as, post-wash, both ripped when putting them on. Assuming a bad batch and giving Debenhams the benefit of the doubt, I purchased 4 more packs (baby brain - wanted 4 pairs and forgot they were twinpacks!). The story was just as woeful. On two occasions, I ripped brand new pairs, fresh out of the pack, so was grateful of my purchasing error as at least it gave me reserves to use! One extremely frustrating morning, it took four attempts to get a wearable pair identified and put on without mishap while the bin filled up with discarded, laddered and holey hosiery.
The faults are varied, with no single weak point in the tights. Some will ladder on the legs whilst others will just give you a hole in the body section, which runs freely every time you pull them up.
Those rare pairs that have made it through the first wash are now venerated whilst I look for alternatives from another manufacturer that won't be such a crushing let-down.
Do not waste your money. Buy some good maternity tights somewhere else.

These are lovely tights, feel nice, fit well and look good. But, on only my second wear they have got a hole which is nicely progressing into a huge run right down my leg. I don't even know how it happened, so it's not like I caught it on something. Considering another pair of maternity tights I had lasted me a whole pregnancy, I feel like I paid a lot for these and now I'll need to replace them. Don't think I'll buy the same again.
