The next pair of panty hose you buy, put water in a ziploc zipper bag and put your new panty hose inside put in the freezer. A couple of days before you need them, take out, un-thaw and hang to dry. They will be difficult to put on the first time, but will last much longer.

Once a month, put them in freezer bag with no water overnight. Freezing them strengthens the fibres which prevents runs. They will last a long time. I have had my 2 pairs for a year.

If you find you are left with panty hose that don't fit in the panty - (that is, the legs fit - but the panty comes up too short) you can still use them. I cut off the panty of old control top pantyhose and save them. Then use them when the panty in the pantyhose is too short, I can still wear the pantyhose with the old control top panty on top to anchor them.


(You can also snip the elastic waistband to provide a little more give in the too tight pantyhose.)
