Wolford Tights and pantyhose are luxury items from a designer brand - however, unlike most designer labels, the tights sizing is generous. A thoroughly international brand, manufactured in Austria, the size chart information displays UK, USA and EU dress sizes plus Height and Weight Measurements. Size Small fits a UK dress size 10 - 12, which is generous compared to many other european brands. This is partly due to the strength and stretch of the high-quality materials used – a lower quality material couldn’t accommodate such a size range as the materials would become vulnerable or warped under the same amount of stretch. Therefore it is very important to check the size chart on each product that you are considering to buy. If you are not sure what size to choose, then be sure to contact us to speak to our team who will be more than happy to help you choose the right size for your bodyshape. If in doubt - size down, particularlly in leggings and bodywear. A size inclusive brand, meaning luxury legwear is available to all body types, many products are available in XSmall, UK Dress size 6 - 8 or plus size up to XL, UK Dress size 20 - 22 and XXL, UK Dress size 24 - 26. There's plenty of choice to find the perfect fit. The right fit is another key factor to the longevity of these pantyhose. The right size pantyhose should feel like a second skin, so you don’t need to touch them throughout the day to pull them up or rearrange their position.
Wolford Tights and Pantyhose Size Chart/Fitting Information
For Stockings, consider your height and thigh width specifically, as these are the most important factors when purchasing stockings. Again, these Stockings run on the tall side so bare this in mind when shopping.
To help you choose the correct size, also check the reviews from customers regarding how accurate the sizing is or any tips on fit that you may want to consider. Carter bought the Wolford Neon 40 Tights and said “the XL fit my 170lb (12stone) 6’ (1.8M) body perfectly, very durable and excellent value.” Yuni also tried this style. They said “They are so elastic I think medium would have been better as the knee parts were wrinkled when I fold and unfold my legs.”
How to Wash Wolford Tights To Make Sure They Last
Wolford tights are a great investment, as they are built to last using the highest quality materials and latest manufacturing innovations - such as seamless hosiery. In fact, this was the first brand to create seamless stockings, in 1954. Continuing to strive for technically advanced designs, they were also first to release completely Seamless Tights 40 years later in 1994. Knowing how to wash your tights is essential if you are going to keep these luxury items in top condition.
Tights are one of the most fragile items in your wardrobe, alongside other underwear and delicates, but we often don't care for hosiery in the same way we might care for lace underwear - even though it's the key to long lasting wear! There are a few options when it comes to hosiery washing; 1. Hand-wash with a very gentle soap in warm water - satisfying but possibly time-consuming. 2. Pop them in a lingerie or hosiery bag and into a not too hot machine wash, this option is a great way for helping hosiery to keep its shape. Once washed, hang or dry flat so they don’t shrink, tear or go misshapen. The one golden rule? Under no circumstances should you put Wolford tights in the tumble dryer! They will very likely shrink or tear and the heat could damage the yarns, decreasing their life expectancy. Ultimately, take good care of your tights and they'll look packet new every time you wear them.
However - if you prefer the sheer styles, a great tip is to keep an eye out for the multi pack promotions. The Wolford Satin Touch 20 and Wolford Sheer 15 styles are both available in 3 for 2 packs - however, they are only released once or twice a year so sign up to our newsletter to make sure you can take advantage of this special price - when they're gone, they're gone!
Wolford Tights Reviews Show Why Wolford Pantyhose Are So Loved
The world’s leading brand for legwear luxury, due to their supreme quality, excellent design and wonderful feel. Popular in the UK and Europe but also in the USA and the rest of the world. But such luxury pantyhose do not come cheap - so what makes these high-end tights so expensive? And why are they so popular, in the UK and the USA, despite the high price tag? It’s all about quality and longevity.
This brand does not cut corners when it comes to high-quality hosiery. In fact, each pair goes through a minimum of 16 construction processes and is inspected each step of the way to ensure quality is maintained. The complete process takes seven days to make just one pair.
Highly technical circular knitting machines are used, which gives the tights additional strength when stretched and means their tights mould to the body as the body bends, which gives that second skin feeling. Once knitted the tights go into an oven on metal legs. This shocks the fibres, which keeps them from overstretching and the colour from fading. This also helps the tights keep their shape when being worn and during washing. All steps of the production process go towards achieving the quality that has come to be associated with this famous hosiery brand, with many steps being completed by hand rather than machine. For example, most tights use oval gussets, whereas this brand use cotton, diamond-shaped gussets which can only be sewn by hand.
Our reviews show how much this attention to detail is appreciated by customers throughout the world, winning loyalty and dedication from their many followers.
Creating striking hosiery designs has paved the way for famous collaborations with creatives such as Photographer Helmut Newton and Chanel’s Director Karl Lagerfeld. These tights may be expensive, but after knowing what goes into making just one pair, its easy to see why! So with all this extra attention to detail- are these expensive tights worth the money? If you are into fashion tights, then they most certainly are and their basic styles are not only expertly made for ultimate comfort but, if handled correctly, can last season after season meaning that one pair of Wolford Velvet De Luxe 66 Tights could last more than four winters. You do the maths!
