Customer request: Extra roomy tights

26 Mar 2015 09:55:41

After kidney failure last year, I’ve put on so much weight around my middle that my tights feel like they’re cutting me in half!

Customer request: I’ve always been big on the hips and thighs and find it hard to get tights that fit to the top of my legs. To add to this, I had kidney failure last year. I’ve put on so much weight around my middle that my tights feel like they’re cutting me in half! Please can you advise me on which tights to choose?

Liz, Cosyfeet Shop Manager & Fitting Expert says:

Like you, lots of my customers find that the tights they usually buy are not roomy enough, making them very uncomfortable. I would suggest our Everyday Extra Roomy Tights. They offer a very generous fit to the top of your legs and around your hips and waist. The extra large, extra extra large and extra, extra, extra large (which go up to a 90” hip) also have a back gusset for added comfort.

Our Extra Roomy Softhold® Light Support Tights are another good choice. They have a deeper-than-average waistband that won’t dig in and feel very comfortable around your middle.

25 Mar 2015 09:14:56

Our exceptionally comfy footstool is designed to encourage healthy blood flow. For one week only, we're offering £10 off when you order our Restaleg or Extra Roomy Restaleg.

Put your feet up on our bestselling Restaleg and enjoy better circulation. Standing up, or even sitting down all day, can lead to swollen legs and ankles. Putting your feet up so they're higher than your heart can help. It encourages blood to pump back towards your heart and helps reduce swelling.

Our exceptionally comfy footstool is designed to encourage healthy blood flow. You can adjust the height to suit and it automatically tilts to a comfortable angle so your legs and feet are supported. You can wipe down the leather-look fabric so it's easy to keep clean. It's also easy to carry from room to room as it's surprisingly lightweight.

For one week only, we're offering £10 off when you order our Restaleg or Extra Roomy Restaleg. To take advantage of this great saving, simply add any Restaleg to your basket and enter the code WDRL10P when prompted. Terms and conditions apply.*
