I invented the STOXBOX to be hosiery friendly.
The size of the box had been carefully considered, big enough to fit most denier but not too big to take up too much drawer space.
You do stretch the hosiery over the box to reveal the pattern and then store the rest inside the box. However, the amount of stretch required by the hosiery should not put too much strain on the elasticity of the hosiery. (Less than it's original packaging stretch over the cardboard)
From our experience you will find, as you use the upper leg of the hosiery over the STOXBOX, that once your leg slides into the hosiery any excess stretch will be negated.
My further suggestion is to swap the leg of the hosiery used by STOXBOX perhaps every 6 Months. Always use the upper part of the leg of the hosiery, where there is more room. Also regular washing of your hosiery will refresh the elasticity.
I invented the STOXBOX because I love my hosiery, love fashion and had a passion to make my life easier and save time! We are proud of our association with The Container Store and excited that my little idea might be grow to be the gold standard for hosiery storage. Danielle xxx
