Fiore Blog: 4 ‘False’ Facts about Pantyhose

There are many false facts and misunderstood myths surrounding pantyhose. In fact, you’ve probably heard most of them already.   But many women are missing a marvelous opportunity to enhance their wardrobe. Let’s talk about some of the most popular false facts, and try to debunk the myths.

False Fact #1

The very first false fact is that pantyhose tend to be too tight and restrictive. This is completely untrue. When we buy pantyhose that fit properly, they conform naturally and comfortably to the leg. It is only when we wear the wrong sizes of hosiery that we can begin to experience bunching and discomfort.  In fact, the pantyhose should perfectly take the shape of the leg so that we don’t even notice that we are wearing them.

False Fact #2

Another common false fact is that pantyhose should be purchased in a smaller size to avoid the potential stretching that comes with everyday wear. While pantyhose will stretch to conform to the curves of the leg, they will also shrink back to the original size after we wear them. Buying a smaller size will only result in the pantyhose becoming overly stretched, which leads to bunching and further damage to the hosiery over time. Choosing pantyhose in the proper size is essential.

False Fact #3

The third false fact is pantyhose are too hot to wear in the summertime. This simply isn’t true either! Pantyhose are usually constructed from very breathable materials that are also resistant to heat. Going back to the earlier myth, women shouldn’t feel the pantyhose on their legs at all—even during the summer. Wearing pantyhose of lighter colors is a safe choice, but even dark colors rarely pose any comfort problems when purchased in the proper size.

False Fact #4

Many women mistaken assume that pantyhose made with Lycra are more expensive. This is not always the case. Prices of Lycra pantyhose depend on the associated production costs of the individual manufacturer, just like any other product or service. You just have to know where to shop. For luxurious pantyhose in a variety of different styles and colors, Fiore Direct USA offers the widest selection from European designers while always at very affordable prices.

Wearing pantyhose in the workplace is becoming increasingly popular once again.  Fiore Direct USA offers many exclusive styles that are very appropriate for the working professional.  For those who are looking to further their career, many of these luxury nylons, stocking, and tights will help you land that new job or promotion with confidence and style.

Nude Colors for Formal Occasions

Nude-colored pantyhose are the perfect choice for more formal situations, like spending a day in court or interviewing for a new job where making the best possible first impression is crucial. Nude colors are also a good choice when our legs have an uneven consistency in skin tone, perhaps during the summer months when we are in-between tanning sessions.   Bare legs in the workplace are only appropriate if you see your female superiors going without nylons on a daily basis.

Tights for Casual Days at the Office

Tights and leggings are a more “everyday” look.  These styles should be worn on Casual Friday’s or in times when a more formal appearance is not appropriate.  In some cases, tights can even help to give a suit a more casual style.  Avoid wearing darker colored tights during the hotter months. Go for a slightly more colorful option of pastels instead.

Sheer Colors for Spring and Fall

After the sweltering summer months begin to pass, sheer pantyhose and tights offer the perfect transition into the cooler spring and autumn temperatures.  Opaque styles can still be a bit too dark for this time of year while sheer hosiery reflects a more casual appearance.  But be careful.  Some sheer styles can look almost too sexy, which may be inappropriate for a professional working environment.

Color Rules for Stockings and Pantyhose

Here are three hard-and-fast rules regarding the wearing of hosiery in the workplace:

  • Avoid white stockings completely, unless you are in the medical profession or are under 12-years of age.
  • Avoid brightly colored stockings, unless you are attending a non-work-related social function. Save these styles for the weekend.
  • Tight with patterns, like lace and fishnets, will always be considered more casual. Avoid wearing these to the office altogether.

It’s that simple.  So if you are heading out to a job interview or simply trying for a promotion at work, these style tips should help you to take your career onto a path of success with confidence.  Check out the online catalogue of Fiore Direct USA for a wide range of pantyhose styles that will be perfect for the workplace.

5 Unusual Fashion Tricks To Keep Your Tights From Snagging

Posted by Fiore USA in Pantyhose, Tights, Tips

Fall is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time of year to begin buying your favorite pantyhose, nylons, and tights. They will be sure to keep your legs warm. If you are like many fashionistas, last year’s stockings are likely filled with runs and snags. So how do we keep this expensive legwear in tip-top condition? Here are a five simple fashion tricks.

1. Apply hand cream.

By applying some of your favorite lotion, before putting on your stockings, your hands will remain silky smooth and your tights will last a great deal longer. Hand cream helps to smooth the rough patches of skin that can easily catch on the delicate fibers of the pantyhose and cause them to snag so easily. This tip is incredibly helpful for those styles that have difficulty recovering from pantyhose runs.

 2. Repair them with nail polish.

For those extra special pairs of stockings that you simply can’t live without, try applying a smooth coat of clear nail polish at the first sign of a snag or run. Simply apply a thin layer at the beginning and end of the snag. This home remedy stops pantyhose runs in their tracks.

3. Get a manicure.

Or at least be mindful of hangnails. Applying hand cream on a regular basis helps a great deal, but it doesn’t always work for people who wash their hands continuously throughout the day, like restaurant workers or medical personnel. Give your hands the once-over every night before bedtime, using cuticle scissors to rid the hands of hangnails at the very first signs.

4. Use a mesh bag to wash your stockings.

Pantyhose are too delicate to survive the swirling and tumbling of your typical clothes dryer. Instead, place your stockings, tights, and pantyhose into a mesh bag. Use laundry detergent specifically designed for delicates. And always be sure to use the gentle cycle for the best possible results. Even when taking all of these extra precautions, some can only survive by being hand washed.

5. Wear footies or socks.

Those little footies that you wear with your summer flats can be a true lifesaver when it comes to your delicate hosiery. By wearing these tiny, no-show socks between the foot and the pantyhose, you reduce the risk of your toes accidentally breaking through the very delicate fibers.
