Growing up I used to hate tights.

Not because they were extremely uncomfortable and unflattering, but because they would always tear. I always remember random runs appearing down the middle, in the inner thigh area and anywhere else it saw fit -- I would throw them in the trash without a second guess, but little did I know -- they could still be put to good use. I'm not much of a tights woman these days, but if I do happen to find myself wearing a pair -- I try my best not to rip them. I know I can't be the only woman who has ever ripped a practically brand new pair of tights and trashed them without questioning their decision.

Ladies, were you familiar with any of these hacks?
@JordanNash I know you're all for DIY's.
This is great! I love ideas about reusing old items and repurposing them for different uses!
Hah, it's okay I knew what you meant @EasternShell
Omggggg! Yes! I totally remember that. My brothers used to do that. and that's actually a pretty smart idea for spanx @EasternShell
I was thinking. Before you could but the wave caps in the store, guys would use a section of old pantyhose. The legs work well as a strainer. And I used to wear the tummy section of control tops over a new pair for extra control (pre-spanx)
yayy! you're welcome :) I figured you might enjoy this if anyone happened to @JordanNash
