10 Tips To Make Your Tights Last Longer

10 Tips To Make Your Tights Last Longer

Are you tired of buying new tights over and over again? Indeed, caring for tights is challenging because they are so fragile. However, it is possible to make them last longer if you know how to care for them properly (and that does not involve storing them in the freezer!).

Here are some tips to help you: 

    1.     Purchase tights that are larger than your original size. However, they should only be big enough that wearing them will not be stressful for you. If you have to keep pulling them up because they are too loose, there is a high chance that you will break the fibers. 

    2.     It is better to purchase opaque tights because they are more durable than sheer tights. The higher the denier content is, the stronger the fiber is.

    3.     Itis best to purchase tights with reinforced toes. 

    4.     You haveto invest in tights, which means you should spend more for quality and durability as much as possible.

    5.     Your nails and skin must be smooth before you put on your tights. 

    6.     Apply some lotion on your legs prior to wearing tights. However, make sure it has completely dried before you slip into a pair of hosiery. 

    7.     Sit down, get one leg of the tights, slide your toes in, and pull the leg over your heel and up your own leg. Do the same for the other leg.

    8.     When it comes to washing tights, make sure to turn them inside out. Place them in a mesh bag meant for delicates, but make sure no bras are included in the bag because the hooks could snag the tights. 

    9.     Wash tights on a delicate cycle with cool water. Keep in mind not to use softener. 

    10.   Never dry your tights in a dryer. Instead, line dry them. 

Those are just some of the things you can do to make your tights last longer. Doing so is important because tights are incredibly comfortable to wear and highly versatile, so you do not want to go without them. You can wear almost anything over them, which makes them a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. 

With these tips, you do not have to go through multiple tights every few months. It is essential for you to invest in quality tights from well-known brands, even if it means you have to pay a bit more. Trust us when we say that it is worth it. 

If you are looking for high-quality tights, you know where to go. Here at Hosieree.com, we have European tights that will last and make you look and feel good every day. Feel free to browse our products to find the one that is right for you.

What Makes European Hosiery So High-Quality?

What Makes European Hosiery So High-Quality?

When you are shopping for hosiery, you will quickly learn that there is a broad range of quality out there. There are inexpensive hosiery products you can buy at the drugstore for pennies. Those are fine for one or two wears, but they quickly tear, stretch, and rip. Because of their low quality, you have to buy more pairs of pantyhose, which ultimately ends up costing more over time.

On the other hand, there is high-quality European hosiery. European hosiery has a global reputation for being the best-quality hosiery on the market. Read on to find out why.

Fiber Quality

Fibers are the threads that make up any garment, including hosiery. These threads can be made with a number of natural materials such as cotton, wool, and silk as well as synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, and rayon. Fiber quality is determined by:

  • Length and length uniformity
  • Strength and micronaire
  • Color and leaf grade

The quality of the fiber has a direct impact on both the strength and durability of the material and the comfort and softness the person using it feels. High-quality fibers are strong, resistant to fading, and soft to the touch. European hosiery is made with extremely high-quality fibers, which means that European hosiery is longer-lasting and more comfortable for the wearer.

Strong Stitching

Another factor impacting the quality of any garment is the stitching. There are a variety of signs of poor-quality stitching that are easy to identify, including the following:

  • Unraveling, snagging, and loose stitches
  • Missed stitches and crooked stitch lines
  • Mismatched stitching threads
  • Holes around the thread

Poor stitching makes a garment fall apart in the wash and eventually leads to holes and tears. European hosiery uses stitching techniques that have been developed over centuries. These stitching techniques hold the garment together for a lifetime, so you do not have to worry about buying multiple pairs.

Pattern Design

Finally, what makes European hosiery so high-quality is the patterns. Patterning is an art form that requires dedication and skill. The right pattern for hosiery provides flexibility for all body styles but also fits like a glove. A good pattern fits comfortably at the waist and smoothens your waistline. It provides both room and support in the hips and the back. Finally, it skims the legs, providing a smooth line and a lot of comfort. Hosiery made with a good pattern never loses its shape and is flattering on the wearer.

Those factors greatly affect the quality of hosiery. If you would like to see the difference for yourself, check out our vast selection of European hosiery at Hosieree.com. Once you experience the difference in European quality, we know you will never go back to drugstore options again!

How To Stylishly Pair Tights With Boots

How To Stylishly Pair Tights With Boots

Fall is finally here! We can pack up our summer sandals and get out our favorite pairs of boots. One of the easiest and most stylish ways to wear your fall boots is paired with a dress skirt, or shorts and a great pair of tights. Though it’s a great look, it can be a little tricky to pull off so you look your absolute best. However, with a few simple tips, you can make sure that your fall favorite is also flattering.

Booties

Booties are really an elegant footwear choice, so you want to make sure that your hosiery is equally as elegant. An easy way is to go with a pair of matte black tights. If you’re looking for a more eye-catching look, you can also pair them with a pair of matte colored tights like the Blues 70 Opaque Tights. Booties also look great with fishnet stockings and lace tights.

Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are a perfect option for fall. However, ankle boots can often make your legs look shorter and wider. However, if you pair ankle boots with a pair of tights, you can make your legs look leaner and longer. Choosing a monochromatic look will lengthen the look of your legs even further. For example, if you’re wearing black boots, choose black stockings. If you’re wearing brown boots, choose brown stockings.

Knee-Length Boots


Knee-length boots are a standard of fall fashion. Wearing knee-length boots with tights gives you a little more flexibility because you don’t have to be as concerned about staying warm. So you can wear some mesh tights like the Gabriella Inez Tights. Knee-high boots also cover most of the leg, so you can use this as an opportunity to add an easy splash of color or an interesting print without overdoing it.

Following these simple parameters will make sure that you always look incredible when you pair boots and tights. Hosieree.com offers the largest selection of European hosiery. We’ll help you find the perfect tights no matter your choice of footwear. Browse our collection and let us know if you have any questions.

How To Prevent Runs In Your Stockings

How To Prevent Runs In Your Stockings

There is nothing worse than stepping out in a great outfit only to discover that you have a run in your hosiery. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to ensure that you prevent getting runs in your tights. Here are our biggest tips to keep your tights looking great.

Invest In A Quality Pair

Pantyhose like anything else, comes in varying quality. The inexpensive pairs that you pick up at the drugstore are not made with quality in mind. Therefore they are going to rip and tear more easily than a higher quality European style pair. It’s not just brand quality that matters, you also want to look for pantyhose with design features that strengthen the hosiery. A great feature are reinforced toes and heels. These have an added layer of fabric that can prevent runs right at the most common sources. You also want to look for hosiery that have runresistant technology. This is especially important if you are very active. Finally, make sure that you select the right size, if your hosiery is too tight, the thread tension will create a higher risk of runs.

Take Care When Putting On Your Tights

Oftentimes runs happen while putting on your pantyhose. Before putting on pantyhose, it’s always a good idea to moisturize your legs. It’s a lot easier to get hosiery on moisturized legs than dry legs. You also should let your lotion, oil, or body butter soak in, otherwise getting the hosiery on can be a little tricky. When putting a pair on, you want to always gently scrunch from the hip to the toe, then slowly work the stocking up the leg. Finally, take extra care when putting on shoes, clothing, and jewelry to make sure nothing catches on clasps, zippers, or textured fabrics.

Wash With Extra Care

Washing hosiery in the laundry cycle with the rest of your clothes can damage the fibers. It can also put them at risk of getting caught or pulled by the ornaments on your clothes like buttons or zippers. Instead, follow the care instructions on the packaging. If you don’t have the packaging still, we have a helpful guide on our blog you can read here.

All of these tips will help make sure that you’re never caught with a run again. If you do have a run though, we can help you fix them before they ruin the entire pair. At Hosieree.com we understand the importance of keeping your stockings free of runs. That is why we only stock the finest quality European tights. Available in every shape, color, and size you could ever need, our pantyhose will make sure your look is never ruined by a run again.
