I’m really excited to announce another giveaway in celebration of one year blogging at Fat Aus. This giveaway is sponsored by We Love Colors! You guys probably already know that I personally love We Love Colors – you can see posts where I’m wearing their tights here and read a review I wrote about them here.
We Love Colors offer tights and leggings from straight sizes all the way up to plus sizes and they come in pretty much every color you can imagine so they have something for almost everybody! I personally highly recommend them, they’re definitely the most comfortable tights I’ve ever worn.
So here’s the giveaway information: We Love Colors will give one lucky reader one pair of leggings or tights and one pair of socks in the color and size of your choice!

So this is almost an outfit repeat from this post but I thought this was a good way to show the big difference between the We Love Colors tights. In the previous post I was wearing the non-lycra tights and you can see how they’re not as opaque and how they’re a bit baggy around my knees, compared to these ones which are tight all over. I can’t say it enough – get the lycra tights!!

A little while ago I bought some tights from We Love Colors and I wore them on the blog (here) but mentioned that I wished I’d gotten a smaller size because they were a bit too big for me. The babes at We Love Colors saw one of my posts, contacted me and offered to send me some tights in a smaller size to review.
The orange and white tights I originally bought were these $9 Solid Color Plus Sized Tights and I got them in a size 2XL (I usually get tights in a size too big because I like to be able to pull them up to my waist). What I didn’t realise was this style of tights don’t have lycra in them and therefore they weren’t very stretchy so they went baggy around the knees and ankles.
These green ones that We Love Colors sent to me are these $15 Plus Sized Nylon/Lycra tights in a size A/B and I really love them. They’re thick so they keep my legs warm, very stretchy and much more opaque than the non-lycra kind. If you’re going to buy a pair I think it’s definitely worth spending the extra $6 and getting the tights with lycra. We Love Colors were kind enough to send me a couple of other pairs so look out for them on the blog soon.
I know that open toed shoes with tights is a really love or hate look but I love it 99% of the time. It means you can wear your summer shoes all year round – what’s not to love?! And I think I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, if you’re going to buy from We Love Colors SIZE DOWN!! I wish mine were a size smaller so they didn’t go all bunchy around my ankles
