Nylons

Nylon was invented in 1938 by Dr Wallace Carothers and was soon developed further by DuPont specifically to replace silk in the manufacture of women’s hosiery.  It took a while for the new nylon stockings to catch on, and they subsequently became in short supply during World War II. Eventually they became more popular than silk stockings because of their high quality and good durability.

Every woman should own at least one pair of nylon tights or seamed nylon stockings – the feel is unlike any other!
