The Sheer Facts about Hosiery

The Right Way to Put on Hosiery


There is a right way to put on hosiery. Most importantly, take a few minutes to put them on properly, and follow these simple directions:

  • Remove all jewellery, and check fingernails and toenails for rough edges. (This greatly reduces those maddening “they ran as soon as I put them on” mornings.)
  • Roll each leg of the pantyhose down and place the toe of the garment over the foot. Gently smooth one leg all the way up, then repeat on the other leg.
  • Pull the rest of the pantyhose up to the waist but don’t pull too tight! Smooth fabrics while checking for twists and sags.
  • Last, take off your hosiery just as carefully as you put them on.
