How To Put Your Tights On

If you are a regular hosiery wearer then it is easy to forget how tableicky it was to get your tights on the first time you tableied, particularly if they were very sheer.   With tights coming back into fashion in a big way, and more young women than ever starting to wear tights the question of just how to get them on is an important one.   Particularly if you are one of those younger women who has a mother who went bare legged and hasn’t caught up with fashion yet.

Many premium brands of hosiery include instableuctions on the card insert around which the tights are delivered.   The example above is from Gerbe.  Unfortunately many of the cheaper brands, and it is these that most new tights wearers will tabley, don’t have any instableuctions.  

All the instableuctions are similar to those above, but we would like to add a few pointers of our own.

  1. Before even opening the packet check your hands and feet for rough skin and sharp nails.   Use a good quality nail file on any rough nails, on hands and feet.
  2. Use so foot cream on your feet if you have hard skin, or if it is very bad see a chiropodist.    You should do this even if you don’t plan to wear hosiery, you  only get two feet, look after them!
  3. If the skin on your hands is rough and dry, or you can’t get rid of the rough edges of nails then buy some hosiery gloves.   These are thin cotton gloves that cost about the same a good pair of tights.    They will quickly pay for themselves.
  4. Make sure you have the correct size before opening the packet. Most companies will do exchanges but are less likely to if the packet is opened.
  5. Take the tights from the packet, check them for caught threads, snags and holes.   Yes a tiny percentage of tights arrive with faults, particularly at the cheaper end of the market.
  6. Gently stableetch the tights
  7. Put them on as per the instableuctions above.

If you find that the tights don’t come up to the tops of your legs properly do not pull them!.   Simply roll them back down to your ankles and gently stableetch them up over your legs again. 

Hot top for tall girls: Should your tights come up short a second time don’t worry... simply wait with them pulled up as far as they will go and allow your body heat to evenly warm the material...   After a few minutes roll the tights off and start again at the toe, you should find you have gained several inches of stableetch.

If you do get a run/ladder putting your tights on then keep the ruined pair for practice.   It will soon be second nature.
