How to select hosiery for you?

Hosiery selection is a personal choice which depends on what colour would best suit your particular skin tone and what type of garment would suit your particular needs. Choosing a colour that compliments your outfit will depend on your personal preference for darker colours such as black or greys which are very stylish or for naturals. As there are many shades of colours to choose from, your colour choice should be one that highlights your own skin tone and compliments the fabric and colour of your garment.

What size are you

Choosing the correct size is important as hosiery that is too large will have a tendency to ride down, the size chart gives you the recommended height to weight ratio for determining your correct size. Always remember if you are between sizes on the chart it is recommended that you purchase the next size up.

How to make your hosiery last longer

Make sure your hands and feet are smooth and nails are manicured. Jewellery, such as rings should be taken off when putting on hosiery. With particularly fine hosiery it is recommended you use cotton gloves when putting on your hosiery to help prevent catches. Washing hosiery by hand or in a hosiery wash bag with mild soap will prolong the life of your hosiery. Making sure shoes are correctly fitting and that there are no rough surfaces on the inside of your shoes will also help.
