Women Admiring Nylon Stockings in 1940s (& LGBTQ History)

Women Admiring Nylon Stockings in 1940s (& LGBTQ History) | Sex History | Scoop.it

Fun fact: Though being gay in the 40s sucked, being gay in the military was easier, and pretty common. There were apparently, at one point in time time so many lesbians in the military that when they tried to crack down on it, the girls wrote back and said “Look I can give you the names, but you’ll lose some of your best officers, and half your nurses and secretaries.” And they pret...

Vintage Sleaze: Stockings for the Stars Willy Demond Stocking Maker and Legman for Hollywood.

Vintage Sleaze: Stockings for the Stars Willy Demond Stocking Maker and Legman for Hollywood. | Sex History | Scoop.it

Willy Demond.  Willy of Hollywood.  Stocking Maker to the Stars.  Willy the Stocking Man.  At one time, Willy had a virtual silky smooth monopoly...90 percent of the legs in Hollywood were Demond's. 

Willy Demond started making stockings around 1928.  He sold his first pair of fancy ones to Marilyn Miller for her role in "Sally" for nine dollars, according to the Miami News of June 11, 1948.  The story ran in gossiper Hedda Hopper's column.  He kept at it and got $2700 for a pair he made for June Haver.  Soon he was more than a stocking salesman…he was receiving credits as "movie hosiery designer" and in 1950 he was called "movie town hose specialist."  Of course this was all back in the day when gams WERE Hollywood.  All singing, but just as important, all dancing.  Legs.

After Stocking Panic, Women Made-Up

After Stocking Panic, Women Made-Up | Sex History | Scoop.it

I’ve researched and written a lot about vintage nylon stockings over the years because the history of nylon stockings is quite fascinating to me. I’m sure most of you have heard about the scarcity of nylon during WWII — just months after the new invention hit store shelves on May 15, 1940. Even silk stockings, second choice to the preferred fit and feel of nylon, were in very short supply as silk was also used for the war effort and the war itself interfered with over-seas shipments.

 

...Here, 1942 Hollywood starlet Kay Bensel applied her faux stocking seams with a device “made from a screw driver handle, bicycle leg-clip, and an ordinary eyebrow pencil.”

Yes, Virginia, like courtesans who rouged their breasts (or, more accurately, their areolas), flappers heightened the color of, and therefore the attention to, their knees. My guess is though, that they rouged post placement of their stockings.

Queen Victoria's stockings up for auction

Queen Victoria's stockings up for auction | Sex History | Scoop.it

Dating from the 1870s, the historical hosiery comes embroidered with the royal VR monogram and will be auctioned off by Tennant’s Auction House in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, on Friday (April 26).

 

Social history author Dulcie Lewis, from Carperby, near Leyburn, has written a book on the history of women’s undergarments, entitled Casting Off The Corsets: A Brief History of Underwear.

 

She said Queen Victoria’s under garments do occasionally come up for sale as she would strangely  give away her underwear as presents to people who worked for her.
