We all have a pair of stockings we absolutely love and have grown attached to. Still, there will come a day when it’s time for our favorite pair to go. The question is how would we know when is the best time to replace our old, worn-out stockings? Here are the things you should look out for:
1. How Old Are Your Stockings? – Time flies by fast and before we know it, a year has already passed. Stockings usually have a lifespan of six months to a year, gradually bearing tears and holes along the way. Of course, that also depends on how you care for them! If you think your stockings are already almost or over a year, it is time to do a thorough checkup and see how they are going.
2. Has The Material Thinned? – Most often than not, we fail to notice that the fabric of our stockings has already grown thinner after numerous washes and uses. Thinned fabric makes your stockings more prone to tears and holes. Stretch too much and you might find yourself down a pair. If the material of your stockings has considerably thinned, it is about time to invest in new ones before your old pair finally decides to retire.
3. Are Your Stockings Slipping Down? – How many times have you pulled and adjusted your stockings today? Another sign of worn-down stockings is that it has already been stretched too much and can no longer hug your legs securely. You can even say that your stockings have grown a little bigger after being stretched over and over throughout the year.
4. Are They Still Comfortable To Wear? – Old stockings may have loose threads that can make your legs feel itchy. They can also lose the warmth and protective layer they initially had as the material grows thinner. Stockings slipping down from time to time can also be a bother as you need to constantly adjust them up. Thinking and dealing with all of these things can lead to discomfort. Consider buying a new batch of stockings when you do not feel as comfortable as you did when you first tried on the pair.
Stockings do have an average lifespan but it is still up to your tender loving care when it comes to making sure that they last long enough. One tip we can give you is to invest in high-quality stockings, like those in hosieree.com’s collection.
