F&F True Leggings
Advantages: Good price, nicely made, keep their shape
Disadvantages: None for me
When the weather started to turn colder I decided that I needed to go out and buy myself some new winter clothes, last year I was pregnant with my Son so didn't really bother buying much so this year a lot of my older winter clothes were looking a bit shabby. During a recent trip to our local large Tesco supermarket I decided to have a quick look around the clothing section, I have purchased one to two items from there before and have always been pleased with them so I decided to see what they had. I actually had a look at the leggings, this is an item of clothing that I haven't worn since I was a child and really didn't think they would suit me, however I decided to try them on anyway and actually ended up buying a pair, this was an item of clothing I really didn't expect to be coming home with.
I purchased the F&F True Leggings although there were many different ones available, these leggings are basically plain black, they are a block colour and the material they are made from is reasonably thick so that when they are stretched over your legs you cannot see through them, I have seen a lot of people wearing leggings and you can actually see through them which in my opinion is not a good look so my main concern was whether you could see through them, however with this particular pair I did not have to worry and everything was well covered.
The F&F True Leggings have an elasticated waist and come down to stop just above your ankle, obviously the length depends on how tall you are as these only come in one length, however for me I felt they were an ideal length as it meant I could wear them with shoes or boots and they looked good with both. These leggings are made from 95% cotton and 5% lycra elastane, the fabric is very comfortable and flexible so despite being tight fitting you can easily move around without discomfort.
Caring for the F&F True Leggings is very easy, they can be washed in a normal 30 to 40 degree cycle. Since purchasing my leggings they have been worn and washed several time and they still look as good as new, the colour has not faded at all, I also wondered whether the fabric might go a bit bobbly, however this was not the case and it is still as it was when I purchased them. Most importantly when the leggings were washed they did not loose their shape, stretch or shrink at all.
The F&F True Leggings come in a range of sizes, in the Tesco store where I purchased them from they came in sizes 8 to 18, however online these leggings go up to size 24, I'm not sure if the larger sizes are available in store, this depends on which branch you go to.
As I have mentioned I purchased the F&F True Leggings from Tesco, they cost me just £6.99, I was very pleased with the price of these, especially as I didn't know how I would get on with them when I purchased them. However I am now even more pleased that I have had a lot of wear out of them as I certainly have got my moneys worth. Despite the cheap price they are very well made and of an excellent quality so definitely worth the money.
Overall I have been very pleased with my F&F True Leggings, as I have said I do not normally wear leggings, but since purchasing these I have had a lot of wear out of them, I do find that leggings are not very flattering or forgiving so when I wear mine I prefer to wear a slightly longer and looser top so that they are more flattering. They leggings are extremely comfortable to wear and are very versatile, you can wear them casually or smarten them up with some heels and a nice top. The leggings are cheap to buy and in my opinion well worth the money, they are hardwearing and easy to care for. I would highly recommend the F&F True Leggings and would definitely purchase them again should they become available in other colours.
Summary: A great pair of leggings from Tesco
