The best way to keep your tights out of landfills, is to take care of them and to wear them for as long as possible. Fortunately, we have some simple and effective tips to help you extend the lifespan of your tights!
1. Choose the right size
Before buying tights, you should always consult the size chart. If you fall in between two sizes, opt for the larger size for maximum comfort and to prevent your tights from breaking too quickly.
2. Put on your tights with care
Before putting on your tights, take the time to stretch them out. Next while sitting, hold your tights at the waist and gently gather each leg with your thumbs until you’re at the toe of your tights, and gently pull on them up. If your tights don't seem stretched enough, take them off and start over. Never pull on a pantyhose when it is worn!
3. Wear them with care
Although our tights are good quality, they are not indestructible. Tights are indeed a fragile product and prone to snagging. Avoid touching them unnecessarily, especially if you are wearing jewelry, and make sure your fingernails are properly filed and clipped.
4. Wear them properly
Good news! You don't have to wash your tights every time you wear them. It's rather recommended to wash them only after 3 or 4 wears. We recommend you wash your tights by hand or in a laundry wash bag on the gentle cycle.
5. Store your tights like a pro
To make sure your tights last as long as possible, you must store tights in an organized fashion. Take the time to sort your drawers and store your tights in an organized and meticulous way to avoid breaking them. Discover our 4 favourite storage methods HERE.
