Care of Nylon

It is better to wash nylon stockings and tights by hand using a soft shampoo.

In general, washing machines damage stockings and tights. On the other hand, there are bags specially designed to wash delicate clothes in the washer. Fibres of 50 deniers or more could survive without a bag, but only in cold water and with other soft clothing.

Dryers, on the other hand, are banned entirely, because nylon is very sensitive to heat.

Did you know that?

Nylon fibre is not oleophilic. In other words, it does not absorb oil. As some body odours can be carried on oil bases, then impossible to be retained by nylon unlike polyester, for example, which would trap these odours.

Unlike nylon, wool, silk, rayon and cotton readily absorb water instead of repelling it.

Finally, your nylon stockings and tights will always remain neutral and dry.

Opacity nylon & deniers

The opacity of stockings and tights is categorized with a weight unit called Denier: 10 g for 9,000 meters of textile corresponds to 10 deniers. The heavier the fibre, the higher the denier. Practically, most manufacturers use the denier to describe the opacity of a fabric or a mixture of fibres. Commonly, the denier is used to qualify the thickness of any textile, including nylon. The higher the denier, the thicker it will be and vice versa. The denier unit is written: DEN.

5 – 15 deniers EXTREMELY DELICATE

Thin stockings and tights. Their finesse is unmistakeable. Completely transparent or almost, they are often ephemeral, but how sexy. Worn especially in summer.

20 – 40 deniers ELEGANT AND VERSATILE

Semi-opaque stockings and tights. They are more resistant than the previous ones. These are, without a doubt, the most glamorous tights. Hyper popular, they are worn year-round.

50 – 70 deniers RESISTANT, ELEGANT AND COLOURED

Opaque stockings and tights. In reality, from 50 deniers on, the fibre is called opaque. Often used for coloured or patterned tights, the 50-70 deniers are perfect for a touch of creativity.

80 – 200 deniers WARM AND STRONG

Totally opaque stockings and tights. These are the tights that we love the most in winter. Although on cool summer evenings, they can be quite comfortable.

Nylon over time

Rare and coveted objects right from the start, nylon stockings quickly followed the invention of nylon in 1935. Also known as synthetic silk stockings at the time, these were the alternative to silk that had become rare and, moreover, expensive and time-consuming to produce. In fact, nylon is a polyamide class polymer (plastic).

The nylon was meant to be a stronger fibre. Today, this may surprise many, given its delicateness! In fact, it is so resistant that it was almost entirely used in the 1940s by the army to make parachutes during the war. Result: a shortage of nylon stockings that has made them objects of covetousness! When the war ended, Europe became world leader in the production of stockings and tights. Thanks to the invention of Lycra that followed, the perfect match was created: by mixing nylon and elastane, stockings and tights became stretchy and elastic. An invention that will change the textile industry!

It is the fashion world that has made thin and transparent nylon stockings particularly popular. The tights took off with the advent of miniskirts in the 60s and 70s. Several movie stars contributed to their rise in popularity.

Finally, thanks to its unrivalled properties, nylon has passed the test of time in the production of stockings and tights; it is this type of material, classic and timeless, that Le Bar à Nylon offers exclusively to its customers.
