I was recently sent a pair of the super warm thermal tights to try out and can't believe how comfy and cosy they are. Plus in the bigger size, they even fit right over bump! So far their outings have been to carols in the park - there's only so much warming a non-alcoholic mulled wine can supply! - and a couple of long play sessions on the rather windswept and chilly beach.
With a soft brushed inside which maximises the amount of warm air held close to the skin, they have a TOG rating of 0.52. I.e. they are jolly warm! The tights are made from an advanced insulating yarn that provides high performance insulation against the cold. They are a good fit, not too tight or restricting and very comfortable - not something I could say about many close-fitting garments when 9 months pregnant!

Made from 99% Polyester and 1% Elastane, they have a 140 Denier appearance, making them look like really thick opaque tights or even leggings. They are great under another pair of trousers or jeans, or with a winter skirt or dress.
Available in sizes Small to Extra Large, they retail at a very reasonable £8.00 a pair online at Sock Shop, and are also available in BHS, Fenwick's, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Sainsburys and other stockists.
