7 tips for making your tights last longer

"The simple truth is that if you wash and handle your tights like any other item of clothing then you will need to keep replenishing them. If however, you take a little more care and follow our hacks below, you can find yourself investing in more luxurious brands that will go the distance" That is claimed in a recent article in The Telegraph.

  1. Pop them in the freezer
    Before the first wear run the new pair under water until they are damp and then put them in a plastic bag in let freeze overnight. This is strengthen the fiber. Let them defrost thoroughly. 
  2. Go inside-out
    When you wash them turn them inside-out. This is the best way to get rid of dead skin cells
  3. Stay cool
    Hand-washing is absolutely best for long lasting hosiery, but if using a washing machine, stick to cold or cool temperature settings. Never ever tumble-dry and always hang them out to dry.
  4. Compartmentalise them
    If washing tights in the machine, separate them into a washing bag (or just a pillowcase) to avoid them getting stuck in button, hooks and other things in the laundry.
  5. Don’t be soft
    Do not add fabric softener to machine washes, as this only serves to break down the fibres in tights.
  6. Pull the right way
    When dressing do not pull on from the thighs, always start from the ankle gradually.
  7. Go large
    If you’re in-between sizes, choose the larger size. Over-stretching fibres will only cause them to wear faster.

Which tights to choose today?

Do you find it difficult to choose the right tights in the morning? Look no further, the answer is here.

It is the British mathematician Dr James Hind who has come up with a formula to get the prefect denier in relation to temperature and wind.

– It started when BBC Radio Nottinghamshire asked me if I could come up with a tights forecasting equation to help listeners get dressed in the mornings, says Dr Hind a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University.

The equation, that looks rather complex, take temperature, wind speed and wind direction into account when finding the right denier for your tights. It covers tights from 0 denier to 110 denier.

– No matter how cold or how warm it gets, the equation will work, confirms Dr Hind.

We have made some adjustments to the published formula so you just have to select where you live (or closest city) and the ideal denier will be presented.
