When it comes to tights, it’s easy to just give up and head to Primark and buy the cheapest pantyhose that you can find. However, this always works out to be a false economy as you end up buying far more pairs as your ladder your way through a whole pack in a week and find yourself heading back to pick up another pack. Instead of this ordeal, check out the Stylight tights online shop to see if you can save yourself some time and effort by picking up a decent quality pair and save your cheap shop for casual t-shirts instead.
Why is tights shopping the most boring thing?Because you have to do it. Unless you’re particularly not affected by the cold or live in LA tights become a necessity for half the year, regardless of how hardcore a member of the no tights club you are. Up there with finding other practical items like gloves, you’ll be glad when this particular chore is over.
Is black the only option?Women tend to stick to black pantyhose as it’s a flattering colour which slims the leg and looks great paired with bright winter coats. However, tights are available in pretty much every colour and pattern under the sun, so don’t feel restricted to black just because it’s the most easily accessible.
Which brands are best for tights?However much we find ourselves relying on a pair of super cosy tights, our particular favourite brands include Wolford and Falke. With a reputation built on their amazing quality, it’s hardly surprising that these brands create tights and pantyhose that will last a lot longer than the cheaper ones, and it’s worth shelling out that little bit extra.
Next time you find yourself looking for a new pair to see you through December, be sure to have a look at the tights that Stylight are stocking online (stocking? Get it?) and you’ll be sure to pick up a pair which will see you through until the sunlight comes back.
Put An End To Tight Tears
We all get them: runs in our tights. One minute you’re out dancing with the girls and the next you’re freaking out at the huge tear going up the back of your thigh.
Though it may seem like there’s no end to destroyed tights, there are tactics to prevent those annoying runs. Here are a few ways to prolong the life of your hosiery.
Wash With Care
The last thing you want to do is throw your tights in the wash with the rest of your wardrobe. Lightly wash them by hand in the sink or bathtub to ensure gentler care. Because of your hands-on precision, your tights will get a cleaner scrub.
While sheer tights are super sexy, they rarely last. They are easy to tear due to their thinness. Opt for opaque and get a pair that not only provides darker coverage, but a thicker stocking.
Stay Clear of Snaggers
Steer clear of all things sharp and pointy. If you have dangerously long nails, don’t hesitate to ask a friend to help you with your tights. You’ll be saving your stockings and a whole lot of anguish.
Wear Your Correct Size
While trying to slip into your younger sister’s tights may seem like a feasible idea, your chances of a well-intact tight is minimal. When you stretch out tights beyond their size, runs and holes are certainly in your future. Finding your size not only relieves the tights of excess stress, you’ll also be more comfortable.
With a few precautions, you can beat tears at their own game. By taking great care, your hosiery is sure to last.
