Don't know if this is the right section to post this question,
but,

How do you store all your tights after they are worn and washed?
I have black, off black, tan, brown, toeless, hipster, sheer to waist, sheer toe, reinforced toe and the list goes on.
When they are washed and put away, and I go to find a suitable pair, I have to go through the lot to find the right one for the outfit.

Any suggestions as to how to store them- I don't have a lot of wardrobe/drawer space either.

Please don't tell anyone but ...

about 80% of my wardrobe is in those plastic dress bags, (with extra holes for ventilation and little organza bags of lavender, but that's a whole other problem) and I have larger organza bags in the bottom on the hanging plastic bag and they hold things like the 'right' pantihose, the necklace that really goes well with that particular dress, the underwear that needs to be worn under a particular pair of trousers etc

Like I said, please don't tell anyone, it's a secret shame of mine.

What a great question! What about those ziplock sandwich bags with the type of stocking it is written on the front. Then hopefully when you wash them ou can put it back in the empty bag when they are dry?

I think Howards Storage and Ikea both sell those drawer organiser things that are brilliant for stockings, undies, socks, bras. Could you put one in your underwear drawer?

Just googling them now....be right back...
