Keeping Pantyhose From Running

Every time I put on a pair of pantyhose, whether the toe is sheer or reinforced, I get a runs at the toes within minutes of putting on shoes. What can I do?

P.S. Once you have applied nail polish to the run, you can often move the mend around so it is on the sole of your foot, and won't show.

I have a pair of cotton gloves that I use just for putting on my pantyhose. Also keeping your toenails short and manicured will help save the foot part.

Try cutting the toe bit off an old pair and put it on under the new pair. It cushions your toe-nails. Once it's snagged though -yep, nail varnish! Marg from England.

Yup, I would suggest getting a little bottle of nailpolish & keep it handy to mend any runs. Works great.

Definitely as was mentioned keep your toenails neat and trimmed. I have heard that freezing pantyhose makes them stronger. I've never tried but it can't hurt to. Also be sure you are wearing the right size.

Keep your toenails cut short, slightly rounded and smoothly filed and you should have no problem.
