It’s safe to say monsoon is round the corner, but how safe are you during monsoon season? We are speaking from a fashion point of view, of course, and it’s about time you figured out your monsoon-proof attire, and especially your monsoon hosiery because let’s face it, you’re going to be walking around in ankle-deep waterlogged streets, to say the least, and let’s not forget about the car splashes that are going to leave you soaked from top to bottom, the bottoms being tougher to dry out. So what’s the plan of action?
Going bare legged in flip-flops is ideal, but can you go like that to work? We think not. You can give weather appropriate hosiery yarn made variants a try, though. In simpler terms, give water resistant tights and leggings a shot!
These leggings and tights can be found at any sports store like Nike or Adidas. These tights are made with special hosiery yarn and go through special chemical treatments that make them repel water and help them to keep you dry.
Even if you get soaked, these special hosiery yarns made tights and leggings will shed water fast and will dry up faster than ones made from cotton yarn.
So, stock up on these and be prepared for this monsoon to be fun!
After being briefly banned from the fashion scene in the first decade of the millennium 2, leggings have been a constant fashion staple in both western and traditional attires. Whether patterned or in solid colors, it’s leggings galore ladies! But… fashion trend is more than often followed by fashion fails, and some leggings might bring you to the worst fail ever… sagging!
Oh! The horror of walking out in a pair of saggy-crotch leggings that once used to be your absolute fave! What happened to them? Why did they sag? Let’s call this a bad hosiery yarn blended fabric experience.
No, it’s not jargon; it’s very simple and common knowledge actually. Fabric for leggings is made through a circular knit process using hosiery yarn which is a blend of a hard yarn or fibre, like cotton or polyester, and elastane yarn or fibre.
If the hard yarn or fibre is of good quality and standard and the elastane yarn or fibre of poor quality, the hosiery yarn develops a weak structure. By this we mean that on excessive or in worst case scenarios, even gentle stretching, can lead to a snapping of the elastane in the legging fabric.
Naturally, once the elastane yarn or fibre snaps, the hard yarn or fibre has nothing pulling it back to a compressed state, or there is no shape retention. The affected part sags and spoils the structure as well as look of the legging.
This is precisely why it is suggested that you buy high quality leggings even if they might cost a little more. They may pinch the pocket a little initially, but maintain your look wear after wear.
Don’t let sagging leggings disturb you anymore, look for Inviya® The Freedom Fibre in your leggings and be freed from fashion fails!
Imagine your life without hosiery– stepping out in a skirt for a formal meeting when you, for the life of you, can’t find the time to shave your legs or running in shoes without socks leading to sweaty feet resulting in smelly shoes or wearing that perfect bodycon dress with a muffin top! All of these incidents spell H-O-R-R-O-R. Why horror when you can hosiery? But what does it take to make the perfect hosiery, ever wondered?
It takes the perfect hosiery yarn.
It takes the perfect knit.
It takes the perfect finish.
And more than often, the perfect garnish to top off the perfect hosiery.
Hosiery is made through a meticulous procedure of circular knit manufacturing. Hosiery yarn is taken and knit closely, sometimes without seams, making it smooth and flawless.
This hosiery yarn can be 100 percent natural or a blend of synthetic and natural and most times it is actually a blend with spandex or elastane fibre that gives its applications a stretch making them fashionable as well as functional.

For those who don’t like the idea of even the slightest bumps revealing through tight fitted garments, compression wear is a blessing. Compression wear contours the body the way the wearer desires and supports it through long periods of use. But for those of you that didn’t know, compression wear has a purpose other than just shaping the body and concealing bulges– there’s more.
There is an array of compression wear available in the market that serves the purpose of improving blood circulation, aside from controlling the appearance of the body and enhancing its appeal, thereby promoting well being through medical benefits.
These compression garments are made from special that is, generally, a blend of spandex and nylon or polyester and sometimes cotton.
This type of hosiery yarn is special because it is very similar to regular spandex blend yarn in terms of appearance but it works secretly as a compression agent.
The fibre that is used to create this specialised Hosiery Yarn is crafted in a way that it has a controlled stretch that lends unique controlling abilities to the compression garment made out of it.
You will find this type of compression wear in the form of tights, tummy tuckers, stockings and socks. Earlier, compression wear came mostly in nude colours so that it would blend with the skin and not show but designers are looking at making the functional garments fashionable by introducing new designs and textures so that it serves three purposes– shaping the body, improving blood circulation and adding aesthetic appeal to your look while at it.
