1. ROLL UP, ROLL UP!

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.  HAND WASH ONLY…

Always hand wash your tights. Never machine wash (unless in a hosiery bag) or tumble dry. These babies are delicate and they don’t fancy being pulled about in a hot machine. Washing machines are your tights’ worst enemy!

3. HOLD-UPS + BODY LOTION = DISASTER

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

4. BEWARE

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?
