    Is there anywhere I can get size 6x tights? If not, how else can I keep my legs warm?

    It's getting colder here in the southern hemisphere...

    Go to Target and look at their women's tights. Cheap (they run for less than $AUD20), made of cotton elastin and likely in large large sizes. Don't be put off too much by the cotton content. I'm at the lowest end of the Clyde scale, but I've used these tights for years in all sorts of weather on all sorts of rides (commuting to 1200km randonnees) here in Australia and elsewhere, and they work.

    If Target's sizes don't run to yours, look for other department stores that have extra-large sizes for women.

    This also is assuming that you don't mind the idea of "cross-gender" dressing.
    Dream. Dare. Do.

    Get wind breaker pants to put on over your cycling tights. I can ride in 26 degree weather with that set up. The key really is the wind. Winder breaker solves the issue.

    I am not sure how much you weight but I don't think you truly need 6x tights.

    Right now I am right around 324 and wear XL Under Armour Tights over my bib shorts when the mornings are cold.

    That is unless we are talking about a different kind of tights.

    Www.aerotechdesigns.com goes up to 5x tights. Those will be plenty big enough! They're a true 5X too. I wore them @425 lbs!

    I use and love AreoTech stuff~! Many items go to 5XL and 6XL, AND, are stretchy - I just sold my last pair of 5XL shorts (I'm shrinking and wear 3XL now) http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/bigsize.htm#bigbasic

    Wore my 4XL at 360lbs, and my 5XL shorts at 380lbs - almost loose...

    Another vote for aerotech, shipping took about 10 days to Sydney, and the sizing is pretty generous at least on the undershorts I got at 5XL.
