What is a "ladder"?

A ladder is a long row of torn fabric running vertically, typically caused by snagging or catching the material on something sharp. This results in a visible gap or "ladder" in the fabric, which can quickly render the garment unwearable. It is a common problem with delicate hosiery and can be frustrating for those looking to wear their favorite tights or stockings. In some cases, the ladder can be stopped from getting worse by applying clear nail polish to the area, but often the only solution is to replace the garment. Ladders can be especially problematic during formal events or in professional settings where ripped clothing is not appropriate.
