3 Reasons Why Leggings Make Great Loungewear

How many pairs of leggings do you own? They are great legwear to have in any wardrobe because they are incredibly versatile and comfortable. However, you don’t even have to find ways to dress your leggings up for a day out; you can also enjoy your leggings at home as all-day loungewear.

Not Restricting

When lounging around at home, we want to be comfortable and feel unrestricted, right? That isn’t easy to do in a pair of stiff jeans. Yes, we can throw on some pajama bottoms, but sometimes we want to also feel a bit more put together than that  even while just lounging at home. This is where leggings step in and save the day.

Leggings won’t dig into your skin, cause any chafing, or prove to be uncomfortable at all. You will also find it incredibly satisfying pulling them up compared to fighting with a pair of jeans.

They Always Fit

Quarantine life leave you with a few extra pounds? Well, leggings don’t take notice. While your other pants might feel a bit tight these days, you will always smile when putting on a great pair of leggings. They won’t be too tight, and they will prove to be comfortable no matter what.

Natural Range of Motion

Another reason leggings make great loungewear is because they allow you to maintain a natural range of motion. You can stretch out on the couch, do a few yoga poses, or break out into dance. The movement possibilities are endless.

As you can see, leggings really are the new loungewear  when you want them to be. We also can’t forget that they are also totally acceptable as part of our going out ensemble as well, especially when we want to show off that new loose-fitting top we bought online while lounging on the couch in our leggings.

The Controversial Side of Leggings

The Controversial Side of Leggings

We have all probably heard legging and tight horror stories over the years. Maybe someone was wearing leggings that were just too see-through, or they paired their legwear with the wrong top. When wearing leggings and other legwear, the key is knowing when and when not to rock this style.

Today we will look at the more controversial side of leggings and tell you how to properly wear your favorite legwear.

Know the Difference

The first step in wearing your legwear correctly is knowing the difference between the different types. 

Tights: This is a piece of clothing that is often made of a thicker material compared to pantyhose and fits closely over the feet, legs, and waist. 

Holdups: These are stockings or tights held up by sticky material, elastic at the top, or straps. It allows you to achieve the look of tights without having a tight band around your hips. They are comfortable to wear.

Leggings: These are often considered tight and form-fitting and extend from the waist to the ankles. They can be made from various materials, including Lycra, nylon, cotton, or a polyester-cotton blend. 

Stockings: These are often made from a more translucent material and often refer to thigh highs and nylon stockings. They fit closely over the foot and are often held up by garters or a strip at the upper thigh. Holdups are closely related to the stocking. 

How to Wear

Each of these legwear types is certainly a staple for our closet. Leggings are often touted as the most comfortable, but many don’t qualify them as pants. So, we need to be careful about how and where we wear this wardrobe staple.

Leggings

When choosing to wear leggings to work, for example, be sure to pair them with a great top. Leggings are form-fitting, so balance that out with a loose-fitting shirt and cover your behind while hitting your lower thigh area.

Tights

Tights are a great way to show off your legs and look great with a dress or skirt. Match your tights to your skirt or dress or even match them to your shoes. For a classy and elegant look, pair your plain tights with a black dress and heels. 

Holdups

These can be worn when you want to glamorize an everyday outfit. However, keep in mind the length of the dress or skirt you are wearing with them. It needs to be long enough to cover the holdups’ top when you are sitting and standing.

Stockings

Stockings are good for tummy trimming, making a fashion statement, dressing up, or showing off the legs. However, the same kind of rules apply here as they do with holdups. Make sure what you wear covers the top part of the stockings while sitting or standing.

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.

The Dos and Don’ts Of Putting Your Tights On

So you’ve bought a new pair of tights and you’re excited to put them on. Allow us to stop you there for a minute.

Even if you have the best European-made hosiery like the ones we offer at Hosieree.com, you still need to be more careful in handling them, especially if you’ve gone for tights with a lower denier like the Angel 15 Seamless Tights. The lower the denier, the more delicate the fabric will be.

If you want your tights to last longer, you need to take care of them properly. Here are the dos and don’ts to remember when you’re putting on your tights:

Dos:

  • Make sure your tights are the right size. Before even putting them on, make sure that the size you purchased will fit you properly. Hosieree.com has size charts for every pair of hose so you can pick the one that’s right for you.
  • Prevent snags on fingernails. Make sure your fingers are trimmed. You can even go further by using hand lotion to ensure that your fingers will not snag your legwear. The last thing you want to do is to accidentally rip your tights.
  • Treat your feet right. Good hosiery care starts with good foot care. Since your feet will come in contact with the material, make sure your toenails are not long or sharp by trimming them. Just like with your fingers, use a good-quality body lotion to make your feet soft. This will help avoid premature laddering.
  • Handle your tights with love. We know you’re excited about the newest addition to your wardrobe, but please take great care of your tights when you’re pulling them out of the packet. Be extra careful so those new tights of yours will last longer.

Don’ts:

  • Stop tugging. When removing the product from its package, remember to do so gently. Gather your tights from the top to the toe carefully. Don’t pull on the fabric too hard as the material might break and you might end up with runs and tears on your tights before even having the chance to wear them.
  • Do not ever rush. Whatever you do, do not rush putting on any kind of hosiery. We know you’re busy and you probably have a lot of things to attend to, but it’s important to take some time in putting on your tights. Smooth the fabric up to your leg as you go. Here’s a guide on how to do this the right way:
    • Pull the first leg up to the knee and then the second leg.
    • After doing so, work on each leg alternatively until you get to your panty.
    • Pull your tights up gently over your buttocks and stomach.
    • Leave enough room in the toe area.

We all know that hosiery doesn’t last forever, but we can try to preserve it to get the most out of them. You can only do this by taking good care of them. Care for your tights and other hosiery items as if you’re caring for your skin. You’ll be glad you did.

How to Properly Care for Fine Hosiery

How to Properly Care for Fine Hosiery

Tights, leggings, pantyhose, and stockings are some of the essential clothing pieces for cold weather. They are particularly helpful in creating a layered ensemble that’s not only warm and comfortable, but chic and stylish, too.

You surely love your Hosierre.com hosiery and we know that you want to make them last. Since you’re likely to find yourself using them more often this season, we thought we’d share with you some essential care and maintenance tips that will help you enjoy your treasured hosiery longer.

1. Know when and how to wash.

Let’s make this clear: you don’t have to wash your hosiery after every wear. If they don’t get soiled, you can wear them up to three times before washing. This is particularly the case during winter, when you don’t really sweat a lot.

Think about your tights and leggings as though they are pants. Let’s be real here. How often do you wash your pants and jeans, really?

For hosiery, the less you wash, the better, because they will last longer. As long as they don’t smell and they aren’t stained, you can wear them one or two times more before washing.

Furthermore, you should know how to wash them properly. Here at Hosierre.com, we recommend hand washing and refrain from wringing them. Simply hang them by the band to make sure that they retain their shape.

2. Know how to handle them.

Fine hosiery is delicate and you need to handle and wear them with as much care as possible. When handling and wearing your hosiery, make sure your toe and fingernails do not have rough edges. It’s also best to remove jewelry before wearing tights, stocking, or pantyhose. Make sure you remove them with care, too.

3. Know how to store them.

Hosiery are not like school socks that you can roll into a ball. Fold your hosiery in half, with one leg over the other. Then, fold in half once more before putting them neatly in a drawer. Storing hosiery this way will help preserve the fibers.
