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.


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 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. 


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 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.

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 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.

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, 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:


  • Make sure your tights are the right size. Before even putting them on, make sure that the size you purchased will fit you properly. 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.


  • 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.
