Will pantyhose ever come back?

Will pantyhose ever come back? | Stocking Exchange hosiery shops | Scoop.it
Hi Lucy,

I was wondering why have women and girls all turned away from pantyhose and nylons. Is this just a fad and they will come back?
hosiery's insight:

This headline caught my eye recently: Will pantyhose ever come back?

 

Late last month "Jenny" asked Lucy Walton, of the UK-based online lifestyle magazine Female First, why women and girls were ditching pantyhose.

 

Ms. Walton encouraged Jenny to wear them if she liked them and if they fit her wardrobe. It's interesting to know that pantyhose are no longer popular in the UK.

 

Here in the U.S. and much of the rest of North America, legwear trends come and go, too. There are thousands of beautiful, elaborately styled and patterned tights, stockings and leggings to choose from, and many women also appreciate the simplicity and functionality of a good pair of flesh colored or nude pantyhose.

 

The choices are many and the good thing about choice is that women can decide what style of legwear they need for a specific occasion and circumstance. Some of Hanes Hosiery's best selling pantyhose come in flesh tone shades. Here, I've noticed that pantyhose never really went out of style.

hosiery's insight:

Early this week back in 1937 Du Pont corp's Dr. Wallace Hume Carothers was given a patent for the invention of Nylon - the material found in stockings and knee highs. The company showcased this synthetic fiber at the New York World's Fair in 1939. The rest, as they say, is history, as Du Pont went on to corner about 30% of the hosiery market within two years of introducing nylon to the world.

Retail Therapy: Colorful, cheeky socks help Fresno mom launch business | Bethany Clough | FresnoBee.com | Stocking Exchange hosiery shops | Scoop.it
Socks are in. Not the plain ones we've been wearing for centuries, but colorful argyles, cheeky knee-high socks decorated with everything from bicycles and mustaches to Hello Kitty and Doctor Who.
hosiery's insight:

On my Pinterest boards I also like discovering and pinning sock lines and brands. This line, called Hottie Hosiery, was started in California in December and has nice looking knee and over-the-knee sock designs in bright and saturated colors. I like their baseball knee socks. Maybe I should take up hobby baseball this spring ...

Polar Vortex aside, anytime the temperature goes down – working outside can feel like a trip to the third ring of a frigid hell!
hosiery's insight:

Some people disagree but I've long believed that pantyhose are unisex and are decent insulators. It's about layering additional undergarments on top of 'hose that makes this work, at least for me. Joe Namath apparently thought so, too. Watch Joe hawking Hanes Beautymist stockings (video linked in article).

Ahh.. they just don't make 'em like they used to - or for that price either :(

Although I did have some originals from the '50's many years ago and they did tend to 'bag' at the knees whereas today's reproductions do not.

Rolled Stocking Trend - Flapper's Roll Garters

Rolled Stocking Trend - Flapper's Roll Garters | Stocking Exchange hosiery shops | Scoop.it
Flappers in the 1920s wore their stockings, rolled down to below the knee. They used roll garters to keep them up, before stretch nylon was invented. Here's a vintage roll garter and how to wear it
hosiery's insight:

Interesting article about the rolled stocking trend of the 1920s. Women of the day rolled their silk stockings with roll garters, setting off a stylish trend and showing a little skin in the process.
