Nothing ruins your day more than putting on your favourite pair of tights only to find a large rip all the way up your leg. We believe that with a little bit of tender loving care, your tights will stay rip free and last longer than a couple of wears. Follow our simple tips for keeping your tights in tip top shape:
It’s important to take care when putting them on and removing them. Simply roll each leg of your tights until you reach the end, slip your toes in and slowly pull them all the way up. Our number one rule is to never yank on your tights to pull them higher, as this will cause them stretch or tear.
When it comes to washing your tights, always turn them inside out and opt for hand wash in cold water and mild detergent. If you’re a hand wash hater, place them in a wash bag and select the delicate setting of your washing machine.
It may seem easy to throw your tights into the tumble dryer but we suggest otherwise, as you run the risk of the tights losing their shape or shrinking. Gently lay them out to drip dry. There’s nothing worse than loose tights that don’t accentuate your shape!
Storing your tights correctly is just as important as how you wash them. Avoid tangling them up in your draw and instead fold them in thirds or roll them up. Not only will your draws look neat, but your tights will benefit by keeping shape and lasting multiple wears.
