A Tight Squeeze


I like wearing tights, hold-ups and stockings. I am a dress-and-skirt wearer and unless it's a really warm day I have an appropriate leg covering on my person and usually a spare in my handbag.


I am in a right.old.pickle because I am finding it near impossible to store these tidily.
In Mrs Hinch/Marie Kondo way, sure, but most importantly in a way that I can extract a pair to wear whilst leaving the others neatly behind...and knowing what I have extracted.

I'd like to be in the situation where I'm not swearing at glittery Christmas tights in March, while I frantically try to stuff them back in the overflowing drawer, making up expletives as I trap my fingers and drawer boings back open; spewing more tights than I actually own onto the floor....(yes I know that sentence is too long..)

So I guess my question to you this evening is:  

How do you store tights/stockings/thin legwear?

Do you have an easy method you can share please??

Take care,

  1. My favourite way is to fold one leg over the other lengthwise. Fold/roll up from the toes until you reach the waistband then fold the waistband back over the tights, so they are neatly contained. This works for tights or leggings.

  2. I wear skirts and dresses daily, I made cotton drawstring bags to keep my stockings in, I just tuck them in my cedar chest, , or hang them from a hanger, I keep most of my clothes on hangers in the wardrobe but I store undies, sweaters and pjs in an old cedar chest with our quilts and sheets. Not everyone’s cup of tea I suppose but it works for me and smells heavenly!

  3. fold in half long ways
    take toes up to crotch
    fold over panty part
    fold this bundle over so it's 1/3 of the size.
    I find they can stand up right this way, I use boxes to organize the drawers and they stand in the box.
