Beginner’s Guide To Putting On Stockings



Putting on stockings can be daunting if it is your first time. Or, perhaps even more so, if you have tried and had a failed attempt previously.  Stockings are delicate by nature.  Without a doubt, they do require some care when putting on or taking off.  So, what is the right way to put on a stocking?

The first thing to check is your fingers and whether the nails are long or jagged. Stockings can easily snag and run. Therefore, smooth fingernails will minimize any damage that could occur whilst putting them on. The person who will be wearing the stockings should have their toenails cut and filed in a similar manner.

This can be an excellent excuse for a manicure and pedicure! Toe nails are particularly important to note because they can snag the stocking, creating a run down its entire length as you pull them up. It is best to keep them short and filed smooth so that they do not poke through the toes of the stockings later, as well.


Leg Care Prior To Putting On Stockings

It is much easier to slide stockings over shaved and moisturized legs. They will also make the stockings more comfortable to wear. Unshaven legs may catch the stockings slightly and whilst this should not cause any damage, it can make the stockings unsightly and uncomfortable to wear. If unshaven legs are preferred, this can be avoided by keeping the hair long. The stockings will appear smoother and sleeker, obviously, if the skin underneath is kept in good condition.

To put the stockings on, the wearer should be in a sitting position for the easiest access. If you are placing the stockings on another person, it may be more comfortable to have her lie on her back with her legs in the air. If the stockings are being put on yourself, then find the position which is most comfortable. For most people this is sitting on a steady surface.


Check the Stocking Type

The stocking should be held with the seam or heel facing you so that when it is put on, this feature is at the back of the leg. Hold the stocking from the top with one hand on each side.  Then carefully gather the material upwards until you reach the toe. Slide one set of toes into the stocking until they reach the bottom.  Next, line up any toe seam that may be present. With your thumbs inside the stocking, slowly slide them up the leg, whilst gently pulling them taut as you go.

The more tightly you pull them against the leg at this stage, the less adjusting you will have to do later. Once the stockings are in place , you can  adjust them by gently pinching and pulling small sections upwards. This helps to get the stockings higher and evens out the material against the leg. Admittedly, it takes some practice to place stockings on straight and even.  However, if you twist the seams, you can straighten the stockings with your palms.


                                  Pantyhose Require Some Care

If pantyhose is your choice of hosiery, the method is very similar. While one leg should be done at a time, it is easier to first apply one leg to just above the ankle before applying the other. Once both legs are in the pantyhose to the knees, repeat the original process on each thigh. When the pantyhose is even on both thighs, place your thumbs into the gathered waistband with your fingers on the outside and continue to slide them up to your waist. You may find you need to pull more on pantyhose than stockings as they are necessarily covering more and higher territory.

Fishnet stockings or pantyhose require a little more care to put on. This is because of the holes present in the design. You can gather them in much the same way, although use more care. Fishnets with nylon toes are generally better quality, as this prevents toes poking through the fishnet and creating tears. Adjust fishnets using the palms of the hands, as fingers may cause snags if you pull the fishnet.

The Art Of Putting On Stockings

Putting on stockings is an art. And like all things, it becomes easier with practice. Even if you do not wear stockings for pleasure, it can help to practice on yourself so that when the time comes, you can impress the special woman in your life. It is not a skill that takes long to learn and it can make the difference between a sensual moment between you and her and a painful, unsexy disaster!
