CARE GUIDE

We understand that when you’ve just bought your perfect pair of Stop & Stare tattoo hosiery, you’ll want it to look its best for as long as possible. Tested to last 9 full days of wear in heels and 2 weeks in flats, our items still are delicate and unique, so please follow our guide on how to look after all those beautiful garments to make them last longer and look fabulous.

Putting on

  • Before taking your hosiery out of the package, check your hands and feet for rough skin and sharp nails.
  • Use of thin cotton gloves especially designed for putting on hosiery or applying a bit of lotion to your hands and feet will decrease the risk of snagging your garment.
  • Remove any rings, watches and other jewellery before putting on your hosiery.
  • Take your time: sheer garments are delicate items that need to be treated with care.
  • While sitting, gather the item down at your toes (figure 1).
  • Slip one foot into your garment and carefully stretch the length of the fabric with both hands up to your ankle and then over your knee (figure 2).
  • Repeat with the other leg in the same manner, aligning the tattoo design as you go along (figure 3).

    • Stand up and roll the garment with both hands over the thighs and hips (figure 4) and keep stretching it until the waistband is in place.

  • If the item does not come up to the top of your legs properly, do not pull it: simply roll it back down to your ankles and gently stretch them over your legs once again, stopping and adjusting if you feel them pulling awkwardly.
  • Gently pull away the fabric at the toe part of each foot: this will decrease the pressure on the delicate material in this area (figure 5).
  • Now it's your moment of glory: "People will stare - make it worth their while!" (Harry Winston)

Taking off

  • Simply do the reverse of putting them on: start at the waist and slowly roll the garment down.
  • Don’t pull from the toe as this creates unnecessary stress on the fabric and makes it more susceptible to snags and ladders.

Storing

  • Keep your hosiery separate from all other clothes: this will prevent buttons, buckles and zippers from catching on hosiery and causing snags and holes.
  • Take care not to allow perfumes, scents and other toiletries to come into contact with delicate fabrics: let them dry completely before putting on your fine hosiery.

Washing

  • Stop & Stare tattoo hosiery must always be hand-washed: rinse it gently in lukewarm soapy water (30°C) without rubbing or wringing the printed area.
  • Hang your garments to drip dry or place between two towels to dry flat. Always dry away from direct heat and never iron.

Hold-ups

  • When putting on your hold-ups, turn the top band over so it is not touching the skin until it has reached the desired position (usually mid-thigh for maximum comfort and fit).
  • Please note that body lotions, creams, oils and talcum powder may affect the performance of the silicone bands on your hold-ups and they could slip out of position – we, therefore, do not recommend applying them on the section of your thighs where the silicone bands adhere to your skin.
  • Similarly, the use of fabric conditioners is not recommended when washing your hold-ups.

Fanstatic design.confortable tights

great and confortable

Very disapointed by this model

On this particular model, in size XL, the printing is far too high on the leg, meaning that if you don't want the top of it to go over the knee joint (which would be very unnatural for a tattoo) you have to not stretch the bottom leg part too much, and hence it is a bit too short to go up to the crotch on a really fitting manner. So it happened what I did not foresee, the tight tear around the crotch area first time I wore it :-( Note that I wear them with the printing on the back, like on third picture above, and it seems the pair from the picture have not the same issue. I bought only one pair so I can't compare with another...

Hope the issue will be solved, because my wife and I are loving the drawing so much.

Thank you for taking time to share your honest experience and sorry to hear you are not happy with the print placement on this design. Unfortunately, due to the fact that one size caters for a wide range of heights and body volumes (from taller slimmer customers to shorter plus size customers), the exact positioning of the design cannot be guaranteed. Plus, as each pair is hand-printed and handled individually, there is some variation between the pairs. I hope you get to try the other pairs from your order and have better results!
