Hosiery Gloves: a necessary accessory

You need to buy a pair of hosiery gloves. Now.

There. You can skip the rest of this entry if you like, but at least you’ve been told.

Hosiery gloves are like preventative medicine for your stockings. The very last thing you want to do after spending money on quality hosiery is snag it with a hangnail. Believe me. I know.

For years, I practiced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s a grappling-based martial art, so I had some pretty rough hands. Hosiery gloves have saved my stockings from any number of rips, tears, snags, runs, and ladders.

The pair shown here is only $3.95 and is available from Stocking Showcase in sizes small, medium, or large. For that price, you can pick up two pairs: one for home and one for travel.
