Spring is here and summer will be coming close on its heels. This is the time of year you’ll be breaking out your sheer hosiery the most, and you’ll want your favorite pairs to last all year long and beyond. Sheer hosiery is often a bit more delicate than heavier opaque hose, and this means they’ll also require a bit more delicate care.
The care for your delicate sheer hose begins before
you even take them out of the package. Before opening the package your sheer
hosiery comes in, make sure that your nails are filed and your hands
moisturized. Any snags in your nails or skin could catch onto the hosiery,
causing runs or tears before you even get the chance to wear. When you’re
putting on your hosiery, moisturize your hands and legs, and delicately roll
the hosiery onto each leg. Remove any jewelry you may have on, and make sure
any stretching of the hosiery is done carefully. Once your hosiery is on,
gently pull on the toe portions to leave a little room and prevent tears from
forming at the toes.
When you take off your hosiery at the end of the day, do
the opposite of what you did to put them on. Gently roll the hosiery down, and
don’t pull harshly from the toe. Roll down until the hosiery simply rolls off
of your legs and feet, and then store gently until you’re ready to wash.
Washing your delicate hosiery is something of a
process, and if you plan to use a washing machine, using a mesh washing bag is
always recommended. Hosiery is ideally handwashed, however, using gentle
detergent and kept far away from any jewelry or other garments to discourage
snagging. Your hosiery can be hanged to
dry gently, or they can be placed between two dry towels and laid flat until
When you store your fine hosiery, you’ll also want to
take special care. Store your hosiery separately from all other clothing, and
ideally not directly on a wooden drawer. Wood can have small splinters you cannot
see, but that doesn’t mean they won’t snag your hose. Line your hosiery drawer
or keep your hosiery stored in small bags or tubs to ensure they remain
