  • Plus size tights - a revelation!

    For all women who are larger, smaller or just a different shape to the fashion industry's apparent norm, finding clothes that fit properly can be a real chore. Those that fit well on the top may be baggy on the bottom, or the styles that you like might simply not be available in your size. This has never been truer than with tights sold on the high street, with many high-street shops apparently believing that all women will fit into the three broad categories of small, medium and large. Tights in large sizes can be quite boring, and limited in the styles which are available - and sometimes they simply don't fit at all. Here at APM Fashion, we have a real range of plus-size hosiery to fit any and all occasions - helping you to feel confident and stylish whatever you need your tights to match. Developed for style as well as comfort, they offer stretchy fits, supportive waistbands and super soft finishes...
  • Tips and tricks for putting on medical compression tights

    Medical compression hosiery can be useful for helping to keep your figure looking trim, as well as for the prevention of varicose veins. However, putting on medical compression hosiery can be tricky, leaving you with wrinkled fabric or even a damaged garment. Here are a few ways to simplify the process. Lotions and creams Applying lotions or creams to your skin should be done the night before. This allows time for absorption, leaving the skin smooth and silky so that your compression tights slide straight on. Alternatively, use talcum powder. Plastic bag If you’re using open-toed hosiery, try placing a small plastic bag over your foot and ankle. The stocking will then slide easily over your toe and ankle, and you can pull the bag out through the toe. Gloves Compression hosiery often slips through your fingers as you try to pull it up. Solve this problem by wearing rubber dish-washing gloves, which grip the hosiery firmly without damaging it. Silk Silky fabric makes the perfect aid for donning compression hosiery. You can obtain a small piece of silk or satin fabric cheaply from a haberdashery shop.
