Why Don’t They Stay Up?

So if you’re wondering what you might be doing wrong that your thigh highs keep sliding down, here’s a list of things you should get right!

1. Not wearing thigh-up

Stockings are meant to be worn high up to your thighs. If you’re making the mistake of sticking them up till your knees, they’ll probably slide down – not if your calves don’t have much muscle anyways. So remember to stretch them as high up as it’s meant to be.

2. Not buying your size

Let’s admit it, we’ve all bought stuff on estimations and it doesn’t end well – in most cases. The same applies to stay-ups, as if these are not bought according to size, even the slightest variations can cause the trouble of slipping down every other minute.

Unnoticeable differences still matter so make sure you check the company’s size chart, the one you buy from, and get it right!

3. Maintenance done wrong

Make sure you never wash your thigh highs in strong washer settings. Drying them in a dryer would cause the same damage. The threading of this delicate hosiery is not designed to endure harsh settings. They lose their ability to shrink to size and hence not stay up for long.

So here’s the deal – if you want to flawlessly move around with these, make sure your thigh highs have these features and are worn right.

1. Make sure you have rubber or silicone bands on the ends of your stockings because then they’d need garter belts. Without these materials, your stockings aren’t actually stockings because normal fabrics would loosen with use. If you’re stuck with a no-return pair, consider altering them with a silicone fabric band around the ends from a tailor.

2. Silicone vs. rubber band? Well, rubber bands would eventually loosen due to excessive wear from the stretch and tension of every use. Silicone on the other hand is a gel-like material that holds its shape without getting affected by excessive stretch so it’ll last.

3. Applying body lotion can be fantastic for your skin but it can mean that your stockings won’t hold tightly against your skin. Friction, my friends, would leave the chat and down roll your thigh highs.
