SMOOTH OPERATOR  Direction File Download

All-embracing hosiery sculpts and shapes the legs, derriere and tummy in a bid to get all-day comfort fit. But while soothing shaping is key, this hosiery direction comes with the added benefit of cosmetic and wellbeing performance as enhanced circulation and skin-nourishing treatment is applied.

Flesh tones and black continue as bestsellers on the sheer and semi sheer front, but also look to subtle cosmetic tones coming through in matte and semi lustrous finishes. In addition to the regular hosiery sector look to the plus size market that requires added performance in the form of zoned compression and anti-chaffing panels. Extended waistbands with anti curl function, raised to the level of the bra for a streamlined shape.
