By legwear we mean all clothing that is specially designed for your legs . Legwear can give a neat or even a seductive look to your outfit. That makes legwear indispensable for many women. There are many models and variants to choose from and that can sometimes make it difficult to choose. That is why we distinguish legwear in three specific types:
Stockings come to your calves, knees or thighs . The material that stockings are made of is sturdy and stretchable. In principle stockings are able to hold themselves up, with the exception of suspender stockings. The advantage of this is that your hips and waist do not have to hold up the legwear. That is why stockings are very suitable and popular to wear in combination with lingerie and they quickly feel very comfortable. Over the years, stockings have acquired a sexy image , which makes women less likely to wear them in combination with smart clothes, but rather in the bedroom. There are many variants, such as naadkousen, suspender stockings, kniekousen, hold up stockings and even garters.
Tightscover your feet and legs . They often come to your waist or your hips, which prevents tights from sagging and keeps them in place all day long. Tights are very suitable for skirts, dresses and other items of clothing, but less suitable for lingerie such as suspenders and bra sets. Tights come in different types. For a more erotic look you can, for example, choose tights with open crotch. During romantic escapades, tights won't get in the way. But you can also choose net tights and tights with a suspender look. These suspender tights resemble a suspender belt with stockings and are suitable when you don't want to go through the trouble of fastening and loosening suspenders, but want the sexy look of such a set.
Leggings are very similar to tights, but differ in a number of ways. For example, leggings do not have 'feet' . This makes leggings very suitable for open sandals or open pumps. Leggings are also often thicker in material so that you can wear leggings very well at colder times. Just like with tights, leggings come to your hips or waist, so they stay in place. Leggings are often worn with shorts, skirts and dresses. For a lingerie set, stockings may be more preferred by many women. There are many variants, such as basic leggings, sports leggings or leggings with print. Popular leggings are for example wetlook leggings or leopard leggings.
What can you do with legwear?
Hosiery can very well serve as an accessory to many outfits. There is something that goes well with almost every look. We distinguish two types of outfits that you can wear legwear perfectly with.
With everyday clothes
When you wear a skirt, dress or shorts, you can opt for tights, leggings or stockings. For a neat outfit it is best to go for basic hosiery such as a black tights. But when you wear a skirt or shorts during beautiful summer days, you can wear what you feel comfortable in. For example, choose leggings with print or stylish stockings.
Legwear can also complete your look with lingerie. For example, if you have chosen a suspender set, this also includes stockings that you can attach to your suspenders. You can choose suspender stockings that are specially made for this, but you can also choose hold up stockings that also stay up without suspenders. Find out more about the main differences between the two stockings. If you don't want to wear stockings in the bedroom, you can also opt for tights or leggings. These look best with babydolls, dresses, bodysuits and corsets.
How do I keep my legwear beautiful?
Once you've chosen hosiery, you want to keep it beautiful. In addition to the fact that tights, leggings and stockings require a careful approach, you can also keep them beautiful with an adapted washing policy.
Preferably hand wash your legwear in warm / lukewarm water. Do not use hot water for this.
Do you still want to put your legwear in the washing machine? Then use a laundry bag that protects your tights, leggings or stockings against zippers, buttons and other sharp things. You can also use a laundry bag for all your lingerie.
Do not put your legwear in the dryer , but hang them somewhere to dry.
Store them in a special basket or drawer for all your legwear. Never iron your hosiery. The often thin fabric will not be able to handle this well.
