3.8 I bought a pair of stay up stockings, correct size, but they are not staying on my thighs. Am I doing something wrong?
Probably yes, as we always check our stay up stockings for slip resistance and we know a trick that might help you. First of all all stay ups should be equipped with silicon band to keep them on your thighs. This silicon band will be useless if you put moisturizer or lotion on your skin. So if you are going to wear Thigh-Highs do not put moisturizer on your legs and hands before you put them on. You can test it for yourself, try to stick a silicon band to your hand(Without a lotion), it would adhere very well. Now put a bit of cream or lotion on you hand and do the same thing, silicon stripe will simply glide on your skin as there is nothing to stick onto.
Next do not pull them up very high, Stay up stockings should stay on your thighs. If you pull them too high they'll slip down to the area they ment to be.
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

3.9 I received my items and color of my pantyhose doesn't look as it was on the website ?
We do our best to match swatches on the screen to the real color of products. It's simply impossible to make them real only because each monitor settings are different. That's why colors will appear differently on each monitor.
If you are not sure about color please don't hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help you.
