How To Properly Store Your Hosiery

How To Properly Store Your Hosiery

With how many pretty hosieries there are, it is not surprising that your collection of stockings, tights, leggings, pantyhose, and socks is continuously growing. If your wardrobe is already overflowing, you might find it challenging to store your extensive hosiery collection. It is important to know how to properly keep them because simply chucking them in an available corner could actually be damaging. 

Here are some helpful tips that you could follow to keep your closet tidy and your hosieries intact.

  • Pair Them Up – You won’t have a problem with your pantyhose because they will always be in one piece. However, you cannot say the same for your stockings, thigh highs, and other hosiery pieces that go by pair. 

Before you put them aside, the first thing you should always do is to pair them together. This way, you would not need to spend hours finding their missing half when you’re about to use them.

  • Get A Pocket Hanger – After pairing them up, you should continue to keep each pair separated from one another to avoid confusion. This also saves you from digging into a huge pile and possibly tangling and untangling them in the process. 

Besides making sure that each pair has its own space, pocket hangers also are great space savers. With your growing mountain of hosiery, you will surely appreciate how pocket hangers could clear up lots of closet space where you could put new shirts, dresses, and of course, new pairs of hosiery! 

  • Use Small Individual Bags – Another option is to put them inside their own small bags, preferably transparent ones like ziplock and sandwich bags. Each of your hosiery will remain safe and secured inside their bags even if you move them around. This will prevent any tears and runs from forming on them. As a bonus, they are also travel-ready this way, just waiting to be tossed inside your luggage. 

High-quality hosieries last long, and handling them with care and respect will make them last longer. One way to do it is by storing them properly. Now that they are all set in their own organizers, it is time to look for new pairs at to add to your collection!
