You may recognize this. A night out. The theater tickets must be picked up to prevent time constraints, the babysitter eats a simple meal with the children, the outfit is selected well in advance, right down to matching lipstick and evening jacket and then he strikes again; ''the pantyhose stress''! Where on earth can you find that one comfortable pair of tights in the right colour and especially without a ladder or other fetch?
A recognizable problem. That's why we always supply two tights with the outfits. One to put on and one as a spare one in the bag, so that you only have to concentrate on the fun night out.
Tights are also a point of attention when preparing business wardrobes. Because if the jacket, the pumps, the top and the skirt are well arranged, the tights should certainly not spoil the fun.
When checking the wardrobes of my female clientele, I always go through the "panty box". A neglected element, because what I find in between (carefully because precarious): "Yes, but it's for under pants when it's cold." "It's a better not", because that's precisely the tights that cause your stress.
Dispose of broken tights as soon as possible. Just buy a thin leotard for under the pants. These rarely break. Less stress and better for the environment.
But just like all women, all tights are different. So it's nice to know what works for you: soft, warm, not itchy, insulating, supportive, shaping, strong or absent waistband, toe reinforcement, in short, there is quite a bit of choices.
In business attire it’s never allowed to wear “the thick panty” and especially not the shiny ones. Stockings are of course always a good alternative. If one is broken, just replace it with another.
Please put on with gloves and hand wash only. Then they will stay “ravissant”.
A team of female editors of the Dutch newspaper “de Volkskrant” did research. The winning tights are:
MarcMarcs Comfort 40 € 8.95, Kunert Velvet 40 € 14, H&M 40, set of 2 € 7.99, Wolford Comford Cut € 39 and the Tempech Opaque 40 from Hema € 4. My absolute favorite is the Kunert “stay warm”. Thank you ladies of the Volkskrant. We are happy with that!!
