HOW TO STOP A LADDER IN MY PANTYHOSE
A “RUN” on your tights will ruin the most thoughtful and stylish image. But this can be avoided. There is nothing worse than putting on a new pair of tights and find a “run” on them a couple of minutes later. It seems that this is the universal law of meanness, but in fact, it is in your power to make these thin products stronger and more durable.
There are 8 tips that can help you easily put on your tights and prevent them from getting ladders!
1. Buy tights with the reinforced toe.
Usually, most of the hosiery garments have a double knitting area in the toes. Look at the package and check the “reinforced toe” icon. Another trick is to put on thin nylon socks under the tights to create a barrier between the toenails and the thin fabric.
2.Moisturize the skin on your feet
Apply a little cream on hands and feet before putting on tights. Putting on tights on smooth and moisturized skin is much easier.
3. Choose tights according to your size
It will be a big mistake trying to pull on tights that are initially small for you. At best, they will tear in the process of donning, at worst during an important event. All packages always have a size chart. If you get to the border between one and the other, it is better to take a size larger.
4. File your nails on hands and feet before putting on tights.
Any irregularities or broken nails can cause a pull on your tights. Before pulling tights, make sure that the nails on your hands and feet are trimmed and gently filed. Rings and bracelets with large stones are also better to wear after you have put on your hosiery.
5. How-to put-on tights
- Roll up one pantyhose leg to the toe-part of your tights.
- Put the tip of your foot into the rolled-up leg.
- Pull tights over the heel. They should not be too tight around the fingers.
- Repeat for your other foot.
- Pull up your tights up to your knees.
- Gently pull your tights over the knee.
- Pull up your tights over your hips and waist.
- Be careful with the zipper.
Boots with a zipper are one of the fashion attributes of winter, but not the best friends of tights. Fasten the zipper slowly, trying to keep your finger between the fastener and the fabric.
7. Washing instruction
Handwashing with cold water is the best way to protect your pantyhose. Machine washing is possible in a separate bag up to 30 ° C with a delicate wash program. Handle with care. Hosiery is delicate, so you will need to handle it with care. Store correctly. You should never roll your tights into a ball.
8. How to stop a ladder in my pantyhose
You can stop the ladder in your stockings with transparent nail polish. It will “seal” the small hole and prevent a run.
Now you know a little bit more about how to put on and how to care about your hosiery garment.
