Top tips for looking after your hosiery

YAAAY! You’ve finally found your perfect pair of nude tights and you’re really excited to put them on. But wait! Have you considered how to care for your tights to avoid laddering?

Top tips for Tights

Here are our top tips…

1. Always, always, always roll your tights up from the ankle. No matter how much of a hurry you’re in, it is important to take your time and do this, otherwise you may end up pulling a hole into your tights when pulling them up. Gather the material at the ankle and slowly roll them up. Slow and steady wins the race!


2.  Always hand wash your tights. Never machine wash (unless in a hosiery bag) or tumble dry. Your hosiery is delicate and washing machines are their worst enemy!


3. If you’re wearing hold-ups, do not apply moisturizer lotion where the silicon grips your leg as it will slip off. We really don’t want you walking around town with your hosiery around your ankles…!


4. Try your best to keep your hosiery away from sharp objects like broken finger nails, zips etc to avoid snagging.


We hope you found these tips useful! Do you have any top hosiery tips you’d like to share with us?

    A gear top is to keep your toenails under control: mine grow fast so I keep them trimmed and file them so that they are not sharp or else they tear through your lovely hosiery. Fingernails should not be sharp too.
