How Often Should I wash My Tights?

How Often Should I wash My Tights?

Dear VienneMilano,

On occasion, I've worn my hosiery more than twice in a row before washing – my sister thinks I'm crazy. Can you tell us how frequently I should wash my tights? Does it matter if the stockings are sheer or opaque?

While there is no hard or fast rule for how often you should wash your stockings, we at VienneMilano recommend washing immediately after each use – just like you would with socks. This recommendation applies to both sheer and opaque stockings. Tights and stockings collect dead skin and bacteria. Therefore, you will want to wash your tights and socks immediately after use.

Best sheer tights

Although we understand that sometimes things come up; You are busy, you are on the road, you haven’t had a chance to do laundry. Wearing your socks twice in a row won’t bring much harm – however, this should be made an exception, not the rule.

Sheer stockings

Additionally, washing your hosiery after each use can prolong the life of your stockings, giving the material a chance to regain shape. You can also add more premium hosiery to your rotation. Get $10 off stockings that are made in Italy. Use voucher code: ILOVEMYLEGS at
