There was a time when tens of thousands of women all over the world considered nylons among their most treasured possessions.
During “hostile times” of the Second World War when polled American women listed nylon stockings as the items most missed (even above new cars and homes). During the height of the blitz in England when life was particularly rugged, harsh and mean, Englishwomen mentioned the thing most regretted was not being able to get any more nylon stockings.
Why so admired?
There’s some amount of magic in nylon stockings-paradoxical wisps that suggest you’re wearing no stockings or nothing at all- making nylons a desirable accessory to women all over the world even today.
