1. Reach into the stocking, and grab the toe.
2. Turn the upper half of the stocking inside
3. Put your foot into the toe of the stocking, and
gently slide the stocking over your heel. Then use your fingertips or palms to
"slide" the stocking up your leg. Wearing gloves can help you slide the
stocking up. Don't grab the top of the stocking and pull, because that may rip
4. Continue to slide the stocking up the leg until it
is positioned correctly. Repeat these steps on the other leg.
