During the cold Canadian winters, tights are my best friend. I layer them under EVERYTHING. Tights underneath jeans. Tights underneath dress pants. Even tights underneath stockings! I was content with this method of staying warm, until I happened upon the wonderful land of eBay and all it has to offer.. which included FLEECE TIGHTS. My world was changed, especially when I realized I could layer two of them together and completely eliminate the need for pants!
Fast forward two years later, and I was back on eBay to replace my very well-loved/abused fleece tights. I was about to commit to the same pair that I had purchased previously, when I discovered this:
The one on the left is described as 'thicken velvet leggings' while the one on the right is 'thicken leggings.' Both items can be bought here. From what I gather, the 'thicken' leggings are basically double fleece, which meant that I could have the same warmth as two pairs of regular fleece tights with less of the bulk. Fantastic. The 'thicken velvet leggings' are the double fleece with velvet lining. -15 degrees Celsius? BRING IT ON. Best $12 I have ever spent. I do recommend that you wear them only if you're spending most of your time outdoors or running errands.. prolonged periods of time spent indoors wearing this will result in a sweaty butt. No joke.
