If you need to wear pantyhose as a daily part of your wardrobe it can be expensive and frustrating at times. It is almost always one leg that is ruined. Don’t despair, here’s an easy fix . . .
Cut off the ruined leg of the panty and slip into two one-legged pairs. Of course you cut off an amount of the panty that suits you best.
You can cut off the leg at mid thigh…..you can cut off the leg at the crotch…..or you can cut off the leg and part of the panty by cutting from the crotch to the waistband (but not through the waistband.)

It is easier to accumulate a collection one one legged pantyhose to pair up if you buy the same brand and and same colors most of the time.

If a run is just beginning, put a dab of clear fingernail polish at the beginning and end of the run, it will prevent it from spreading further.

  1. i have also heard that soaking the hose in salt water (i have forgotten the ratio) will help the hose last longer and avoid runs in the first place. it seemed to work for me, ages ago when i wore the stuff. i may just have to do a search about it.

  2. i’ve done this for several years. i work in an office where i’m required to dress professionally but not paid wages that can cover a new pair of panty hose every day. the bonus is that if you wear control tops, you get extra control, lol!

    i also found that support hose last longer and don’t run as easily.

      love the idea of the control tops, I always dry my pantyhose in the shade as I have heard that is good for prolonging the life of the pantyhose

  3. when i was at school and we had to wear panty hose each day, we would spray the pantyhose once on with hairspray to help stop any pulls and carry our nail polish with us.:cloud9:
