4 Tips To Help Your Hosiery Last Longer

High quality European hosiery is an investment, and it should be treated as such! At Hosieree.com we don’t just want to supply you with the hosiery you love, we want to make sure it lasts through all those days at the office, nights out, dates, and special events. 4 tips to help you get years out of your hosiery are: 

1. Reinforced seams are your friend – The last surprise you want to see when taking your shoes off at the end of the day is a rogue toe sticking out of your hose. If you know that you tend to wear the seams of your hosiery a bit harder, the best investment you can make is in hosiery with reinforced toes and strong seams (or no seams at all!) 

2. Be mindful of friction – If your shoes tend to rub the back of your heel, you’re risking your hosiery. If your nails haven’t been freshly filed, you’re risking your hosiery. If you keep your hosiery in a basket or an unlined drawer, you’re also risking your hosiery. Friction is never a friend to hosiery, and limiting the contact your hosiery has against anything rough helps to keep your favorite pieces in good shape. 

3. Mindful washing matters – How you wash your hosiery will directly impact their lifespan. As a matter of fact, it may be one of the most important factors. Handwashing hosiery in a gentle detergent is ideal, but you can approach washing in a washing machine carefully. If washing in a machine, always use a garment bag, keep your hosiery far away from zippers or any sharp adornments, and keep both the cycle and the soap as gentle as possible. When drying, lay your hosiery out on a clean, soft towel and simply roll up with the hosiery inside. Allow the towel to soak up excess moisture, then lay flat to dry fully. 

4. Roll them up – When putting on your hosiery, it might be tempting to simply pull upwards like you’re putting on a pair of pants or leggings, but what you’re doing is weakening the fibers in your hose. Rather than pulling, bunch the hosiery down by the ankle, slip onto the foot, and roll upwards evenly and gently.
