Ok, I am a HUGE pantyhose fan and I try to wear them every day. I adore the way they add contrast to my legs, help shape my body, the delicate hug and compression, the sexy "Hey, here are my legs!" shimmer, and the concealment of imperfections and their transformation into testaments of feminine power and grace. Even their scent is admired by many men and women alike.
Here are some tips to prolong the life of our dear love, the pantyhose:
Side tip: did you know putting a little caramel extract or perfume on your toes will make most men fall in love with you! Take care of your feet, scrub them, then buff them. ;)
You can add hairspray to your pantyhose after they have dried to further lock in the nylon grid, however, you will have to wash them more frequently which no matter what will weaken anything, after all, H20 or water is the universal solvent :)
Side tip: Keep you nylons on next time you ask for a foot rub because they act as a dry lubricant, letting the hands slide more freely across the skin and it feel amazing too! ;)
Side tip just from me to you, so shhhh! Invest in Spider Silk producers and manufacturers like Kraigs Biocraft Labs.
Just for fun, I let my son pick out a pair for me at the mall the other day with the help of a very nice and knowledgeable salesgirl who helped us out greatly. He insisted I wear them to his high school play that he is in so I will, that's how amazing pantyhose are! :)
Pantyhose are getting expensive and I work in an office and need to wear them everyday. Whenever I get one leg that has a noticeable run or hole. I cut of the one leg. Then I use it either with a pair that the other leg has been cutoff. If I have 2 pairs with the same leg gone, I will turn one inside out.

Panty hose are expensive! This little trick has probably saved me hundreds of dollars over the years! Decide on your most preferred color of pantyhose and buy several pair. When getting a run or hole in one leg, cut that leg off and launder the "good leg" and panty.

So you have two pairs of pantyhose/tights, both pairs are the same shade/colour and both pairs have a hole in one leg. So you cut off the legs with the holes and then wear both pairs one on top of the other, thus covering both your legs with a leg of pantyhose with no holes or ladders!
