I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

I Can Has Teggings?!

September9

We all can! Woo! It’s true! Re/Dress NYC now offers teggings and more on their website: http://www.redressnyc.com/

I’d longed for some teggings since I first heard Marriane of therotund.com mention them in a podcast. I think I even waxed philosophically with Golda about it in my own podcast! Ha-ha! I lusted after them like they were some sort of lost treasure that only a few were privy of it’s whereabouts.

No more! While at the Cupcakes & Muffintops event in Oakland, the ever flabulous Marilyn Wann allowed, neigh, invited me to touch and stretch her hot pink pair of teggings…and I did with great delight! It was at that moment I was convinced that I required them for sure. And so I ordered myself three pair: Dark red, Hot pink and Black!

Today was the first day that I wore them. And can I just say that they will absolutely fit almost anyone! I have 63″ hips and there is plenty of room for more! They are thicker than tights, thinner than leggings and stretchy as hell! I love ’em! I will say the crotch thing is always an issue for me, but it’s not terrible in these as the fabric isn’t at all binding. Yay! The waistband doesn’t roll. They stay up quite nicely. I have no complaints at all. This is shocking and flabulous!

This first pic shows the see-through-ness of them with my knees all bent and stuff:

This one is just standing there, you know, lookin’ good, I guess:

Teggings from Re/Dress $18, Dress from Ross (Dress For Less $10), Belt Torrid (2/$5 dealio), Headband Ross $4, Necklace Kohl’s…I think that’s it! Ha! I’m not so good at remembering these things.

I am quite pleased with these and I hope you will be too! I give them my fullest endorsement. No, I’m not being paid, though I would gladly take more teggings as payment for this glowing review (more colors!). Ha-ha! Thanks for reading.

    OoOohhh! They even have electric turquoise! I have absolutely nothing to match electric turquoise, but I want them anyway. 😀

    @Eselle: I know! I want all of them, but my budget did not allow. I was hoping for a brightish purple, too, but no dice. That turquoise is so excellent! But yeah, not sure what to wear ’em with except just a black dress.

    the teggings are calling to me.

    @maggiemunkee: They were calling to me to for like a year! Ha-ha!

    Ooooh, WANT! Will get. I’m thinking yellow and orange and turquoise.

    @Eselle: I once had a pair of shoes very similar in color to the turquoise teggings, and those puppies went with EVERYTHING. Seriously. Black, browns, greys, reds, purples, other blues… there was virtually nothing they didn’t go with. If you have the bucks to spare, I strongly suggest getting the turquoise.

    @Twistie: Now you’re talking ME into getting the turquoise! Ha-ha!

  9. On September 9th, 2011 at 12:40 pm Twistie Says:

    Ah, then my work here is done… for the moment.

  10. On September 9th, 2011 at 12:47 pm Eselle Says:

    I have black stuff, and brown stuff and…. Now look what you’ve done! 😀

    I know! Twistie and her evil plans for us all! I assure you, it comes from love! Ha-ha! <3

    Have I ever mentioned to you that I completely agree with my mother’s theory that orange is the ultimate neutral?

    (ducks)

  13. On September 9th, 2011 at 1:01 pm Not Blue at All Says:

    You! Ha-ha! But I have learned to love some orange, so you’re totes forgiven! <3

    To quote the late, great Anna Russell in her lecture on Wagner’s Ring Cycle: “I’m not making it up, you know.” My mother did really teach me that orange is the best neutral going, and I have found her words to be quite true.

    Maybe you thought I got this quirky without help? No. No, I did not.

    i’ve SO been wanting to learn more about these, thank you! (you know, since the point of your posts is to give me what *I* want : ) methinks I’m gonna purchase a couple pair, you’ve pushed me over the edge (in a good way)

    Also, turquoise is totes a neutral, that shit goes with everything!

  16. On September 10th, 2011 at 7:53 am Not Blue at All Says:

    @Sabrina: Damn! Everyone’s in cahoots! I must have the turquoise now! Ha-ha! Perhaps I could go in on an order with someone local to save on shipping?

    DIY project: I make my own teggings. I had a bunch of old black tights in my underwear drawer that I don’t wear any more, so I just cut them off at the ankle and, voila: teggings!

  18. On September 10th, 2011 at 11:05 am Not Blue at All Says:

    @thirtiesgirl: Nice!

  19. On September 11th, 2011 at 6:25 pm Eselle Says:

    I just won a skirt on eBay that is shades golden brown, burnt orange and pale champagne. Now, I’m considering the yellow teggings as well as the turquoise. Oh, the temptation!

  20. On September 12th, 2011 at 9:07 am Not Blue at All Says:

    @Eselle: I will say that I wore my black ones a second time and walked a lot and had zero problems! NONE! This is incredible, I thought surely there’d be the old crotch issue or pilling…Nope! These things are perfect in my opinion. So, well worth the money, too!

  21. On October 25th, 2011 at 5:40 pm eli Says:

    May I ask, how far do these teggings stretch upwards? I like my waistband to be around my natural waist…

  22. On October 26th, 2011 at 9:12 am Not Blue at All Says:

    Eli: How high do you want it to go? I’m a solid 28/30 at say, the Avenue, and when I wear my teggings I could easily pull them up to or perhaps even over my bra. I wear them on my natural waist though. They have yet to roll at the waist band, too. They are just perfection, I tell you. But feel free to ask more questions if you have them.

  23. On October 28th, 2011 at 5:16 am eli Says:

    Awesome! Thanks a bunch! These officially sound like perfection.

  24. On October 28th, 2011 at 8:47 am Not Blue at All Says:

    eli: I think they are, I ordered another 3 pair…I will soon have 6 different colors of perfection. Now if they could just get purple? Ha-ha
