Do you want natural colours that are similar to skin tone?
Do you want to stand out with coloured or patterend tights?
Or do you want classic black?
This can ultimately change the look of an outfit.
What outfit will you be wearing?
Will the briefs be visible under a dress or skirt?
Do you need a control top or maternity tights?
What shoes will you be wearing?
Open toes are best for peep toe shoes and sandals, while a reinforced toe is best for enclosed shoes.
When putting on hosiery, remove all rings and bracelets so they don't catch on the stockings. Watch out for sharp fingernails as well.
Roll your stockings up so that your toes are in the bottom of the stocking. Then pull the rest of the stocking up you leg. This ensures that you are not pulling the fabric too much that can cause ladders.
Ideally wash your hosiery by hand or an easier alternative is to put them in a hosiery bag on cool wash. Dry away from direct heat and never iron.
If your stocking has a ladder and you are unable to change into a new pair, dabbing some clear nail polish on the ladder will prevent it from unravelling further. We suggest throwing out any stockings that have ladders and holes as it can ruin an outfit.
Now that you know all about hosiery, it's time to buy hosiery!
