WASHING AND CARING FOR YOUR HOSIERY
Care of your hosiery is a simple equation: if you take well care of these garments, they will last longer.- Wash pantyhose gently by hand, using a mild detergent that doesn’t contain chlorine bleach, which will remove colors and damage fibers.
If you prefer the washing machine, place them in a hosiery bag or pillowcase and wash on the gentle cycle with a mild detergent.
To dry, placeone or two pairs of pantyhose on a towel, roll up and squeeze towel gently. This eliminates stretching when hanging hosiery to dry.
Never attempt to dry pantyhose in the dryer.
ENSURING A PROPER FIT
Selecting hosiery that fits properly is one of the best ways to ensure maximum wear life. If your hosiery is too tight, it is more susceptible to wear and tear and it minimizes your flexibility.
Most pantyhose have a chart on the back of the package that gives height and weight ranges for each size. You may have already discovered that a size A in one brand of pantyhose is not necessarily the same as a size A in another brand.
That’s because many brands use different yarns from different sources with different characteristics, and also may use different machinery and knit fabric constructions.
It’s all right to stretch the truth about your weight when talking to a friend. But, you have to be honest with yourself when buying pantyhose in order to ensure the proper fit.
If you are at the upper end of a size range, it’s often wise to get the next size for maximum fit and comfort. Larger or full-figured women should look for larger-sized products often called queen size, which are designed for them. If you have large calves go up one size.
