HOW TO PUT ON TIGHTS

hpw to put on tights!

Nowadays hosiery is produced to much better quality and standards than in the past.  Though many women are still experiencing hosiery hell on a daily basis.  if you are struggling with tights, try a more premium product which is likely to be stronger and more run resistant and more comfortable than it's cheaper counterparts - and better value on a price per wear basis.  Paying a bit more for your hosiery will likley encourage you to look after your tights a bit more carefully.  And here are some quick wins for putting them on.....

Short Video Guide

Note: Bare in mind the more sheer hosiery is, the more fragile it is to break or to run.

being in a hurry

  • So, take your time when putting on your hosiery and never do it in a hurry.  This will save you putting your fingers through them and having to do it all over again!

smooth hands and nails

  • Check for fingernails or jewellery that may cause snags before unpacking your tights out of the packaging or putting them on. If you have them or have a very special pair of tights or stockings, make use of thin cotton gloves, which are designed for putting on hosiery.  You can also apply a bit of lotion to your hands that will also help you keep from snagging your tights- hosiery.

sitting down to put on tights

  • Take a seat and while sitting, gather your tights down to the toes

  • Then slip your leg smooth into your tights one at a time.
  • Carefully and gently stretch the length of the tights with both hands over your knees, one leg at a time,

 putting on tights - stretching past knees 

  • Stand up and roll the tights with both hands over the thighs and hips, keep stretching the pantyhose until the waistband is in place- but slowly and carefully. That will prove as well if you bought the right size. If too small they will give and start to run.
