Here's everything you need to know about hosiery including information about hosiery styles, selecting

How to Care For Your Tights and Pantyhose
Store each pair of tights or pantyhose in separate containers. A sandwich size plastic bag works well.
This prevents them from snagging while in a drawer or while you sort through them.
Spray your tights with a light mist of hairspray before you wear them. The spray will stiffen the fibers
and make them last longer.
Wear cotton underwear with your tights instead of silky or polyester ones. This keeps them from sliding
down your leg and you will be more comfortable. The constant tugging to keep them up can cause
rips or snags.
Keep a thin pear of cotton gloves with your tights. Slip the gloves on before pulling the tights over your
legs to keep your fingernails from causing tears.
How to Make Your Pantyhose and Tights Last Longer
Trim and file your toenails to avoid snags when you're slipping on delicate hosiery. If you have
long nails (especially fake ones), wear cotton gloves when you put on pantyhose to avoid ripping them.
Keep in mind that control top pantyhose have greater strength and durability than their regular
If you get a run and aren't able to change into a new pair of hosiery, dab a bit of clear fingernail polish
on the run to keep it from getting worse.
Protect your investment by properly caring for your hosiery. Hand wash your hosiery in mild detergent,
or place it in a lingerie bag and wash it on the gentle cycle in your washing machine.
Let them hang dry.
Keep extra pairs in your tote bag, glove compartment and desk drawer so you are never caught
in a bind with a pair of ruined hose.
Washing and Care
If you take good care of your hosiery, they'll last longer.
Wash pantyhose gently by hand, using a mild detergent that doesn't contain chlorine bleach,
which will remove colours and damage fibers. If you prefer the washing machine, place them in a
hosiery bag or pillowcase and wash on the gentle cycle with a mild detergent.
To dry, place one or two pairs of pantyhose on a towel, roll up and squeeze towel gently. This eliminates
stretching when hanging hosiery to dry. Never attempt to dry pantyhose in the dryer.
How to Put On Stockings, Pantyhose or Nylons - Option 1
The first thing you need to do is make sure your nails are nicely filed. You want to have smooth
nails to avoid puncturing the nylon hence creating runs. This goes for toe nails as well.
Remove all bracelets and rings which could be a potential "run maker"
Remove nylons from the package. With two hands using both index fingers and thumbs, start
gathering one leg of the nylon working your fingers into the foot area of the nylon. When your fingers have
reached the toe area of the nylon, insert your foot into first the leg and work the nylon up your leg.
Be careful not to pull too hard. Repeat with other leg.
When both legs are in, pull the control top over your stomach area and buttocks. At this point,
there is usually extra nylon sagging in between your crotch area. To adjust this problem,
you need to pull slack starting from the ankle area and work your way up until the extra nylon has been pulled up.
How to Put On Stockings, Pantyhose or Nylons – Option 2
Take the pantyhose out of the package.
Sitting or standing, place your two thumbs inside one of the pantyhose legs.
Place your index, middle and ring fingers along the outside of the pantyhose.
Using the thumbs along with your index, middle and ring fingers of both hands roll the pantyhose leg
up to the toe of the hose, allowing the hose to bunch in your hands easily.
Once at the tip of the toe, use your thumbs to stretch the opening wider by stretching the hose outward.
Bending your knee and pointing the big toe, place the big toe inside of the pantyhose.
Slowly begin pulling the pantyhose over the foot, heel and up the leg, over the knee and up to the
Repeat the same process for the second leg.
Once both legs are on, pull the panty of the hose over the buttocks and allow the waist band to
rest at the waist.
Drying Your Pantyhose in a Hurry
Lay the pantyhose out on a clean, dry, absorbent towel. Roll the towel up into a tube with the pantyhose
rolled inside. Squeeze gently to remove moisture from pantyhose. Unroll the towel and lay the hose flat
on a second dry towel. They would finish air drying in a few minutes.
Drape the pantyhose over a towel rack and dry them quickly with a blow dryer set on low, cool speed.
Be careful not to set the hair dryer on high or hot, because too much heat burns or melts nylons.
Clip them onto a hanger using plastic or rubber cloths clips or clothespins. Go easy so you don't snag
the fabric and cause runs. Hang the hanger in front of a table or window fan and let the breeze dry them fast.
Toss your clean wet nylons into your salad spinner. Close the top securely and turn it on. Spin the water
out of your pantyhose in seconds.
Put them on while they are still damp if it is summertime and you are in a hurry. The cool fabric might feel
good, and pantyhose finishes drying fine while you wear them. Be careful they are only damp and not wet
because sitting in wet pantyhose leads to a wet dress.
