What’s going on? My pantyhose are fading away!

July 25, 2012 under Weird

Here is the real reason to why I am wearing ‘over the knee’ socks with these pantyhose!

Rubbed off or  Stretched out?

I am really not sure what’s going on, but I am getting some thinning spots on my pantyhose from the friction with the shoe.

These are very cheap pantyhose by Gatta that I got on my trip to Poland.  It is a simple style with a lace control top and reinforced toes, but now I can only wear it out with some kind of socks.

I am surprised to see this kind of behavior because earlier I was satisfied with the quality of higher priced styles from this line.  But it turns out that with lower the quality is also lower.

At least this kind of stuff hasn’t happened to any of my other pantyhose from other lines, including cheaper ones.

    It is too bad that they are wearing out.

    Never seen that kind of wear before, maybe something went wrong in manufacture and that batch of nylon was not up to spec. A guy I knew years ago who worked in that trade once told me that black nylon is the weakest, I wish I had asked him why, possibly the dye used?

      I think that could be true that black dye would make pantyhose weaker. Dyes are reacting chemically with the yarn. At least that’s what I’ve been told – it doesn’t sit on top of the yarn, it becomes part of it.
