Today I want to take a few minutes to share about Hipstik with you! Hipstik is a woman-founded/owned company that offers tights and hosiery (made in the USA!).
"It all started with a pair of scissors. Seriously! One day after work, while changing into PJs, my husband and co-founder, Jason, was baffled by the scissor cut down the front of my pantyhose. He said, “What happened there?” I said, “THEY’RE SO UNCOMFORTABLE, so I cut them in the bathroom at the office!” We had a good laugh and that pair ended up in the trash. And then I began the hunt for a comfortable pair. After years of trying on dozens of styles and brands, I had given up. The largest size was too small – the tug, pull and irritating squeeze. The waist always too high – why is control top the only style available?! What if I don’t want a control top at 10 a.m. on a Tuesday! I knew there had to be better. That’s when I had the “light-bulb” moment. With our backgrounds in product development and marketing, we knew we could make this happen. I could bring women the tights they actually want to wear. Then, the real work started. Asking friends about their own experiences wearing hosiery. Finding a manufacturing partner. Samples. Conversations. Samples. Testing. Patenting. It became a crusade for comfort in a product category that has never been comfortable. And here we are – Hipstik is everything women have ever wanted in a pair. I have found my happy. And I truly believe Hipstik tights are so comfortable, they will make your day happier, too."
There are several styles and colors to choose from, and each item features a feminine lace waistband (stretchy, so it's sure to fit correctly!), and it actually has a little silicone band to keep it from sliding. That is honestly probably my favorite feature of these! I love the classic look of wearing hose any time I'm "dressed up", and I can attest to the fact that it's hard finding a pair that the waistband does not slide or roll.
If you wear hose or tights on even a semi-regular occasion, you definitely need to head on over to the Hipstik website and choose a pair of your own! You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date on their latest news, products, etc.
