What would you do if you found a run in your tights, knee highs, or stockings? The easiest thing to do would be to buy a new pair. But, if you are low on cash, you can fix your tights up yourself. All you need is a little bit of clear nail polish and that should do the trick. Any brand of clear nail polish should do. You can purchase clear nail polish from drug stores like CVS and Rite Aid. You just run the clear nail polish along the line in your tights and the polish will glue the run in the tights back together.
Tights are an article of clothing a woman cannot live without. Knee highs and thigh highs are especially comfortable if you don’t like the feeling of a huge elastic band around your waist. Wearing full length tights can be a bit bothersome and especially if you are wearing them throughout the day, and in the office, it can start to feel like it is cutting off your circulation. You can wear knee highs and thigh highs with long and short skirts and dresses. They can be found in the colors black, beige, brown, and just a clear material.
Some women have multiple pairs of tights so they don’t run into the problem of having many runs and nothing to wear. You can usually buy a pack of knee highs or thigh highs for just a few dollars at many women’s clothing shops. Stockings are thicker tights, and they are an article of women’s clothing that can be worn in the winter time and colder parts of the year. Stockings can be found at many clothing shops like Marshalls, Ross, and JC Penny. You can also find tights at shoe shops.
If you are creative, you can wear tights in different patterns. You can find kids’ tights with heart patterns, balloons, smiley faces, and flowers. Women’s tights usually come in simple patterns like stripes and circles, and you can find argyle tights as well.
If you wear your nylons frequently, they may get runs in them so you may just have to replace them if you wear them on a daily basis. You can also sew your tights up with a needle and thread if you are the crafty type. If you have thread that is the same color as your tights, this could work. But, you don’t want to sew up your tights if you only have red thread, for instance, and your tights are black. If you don’t mind spending the time sewing and want to save a few bucks, this might be a good option for you.
Women wear tights on a daily basis so it is good to know how to take care of them if they are giving you trouble. You can either throw them out (which is the easiest option), fix them up with some clear nail polish, or sew them with a needle and thread. Good luck with those tights!
It is fun to shop for clothing and you can even fix up your old women’s clothing, like nylons, all on your own!
