Title stockings
Collection Museum of Design in Plastics: Arts University Bournemouth

Date 1960-1969
Description A pair of black Cubex Bunny Girl nylon tights in the original illustrated packet, from the 1960s. Nylon was adopted as the favoured fibre for the manufacture of stockings during World War II. Its elasticity, shape retaining properties and easy laundering made it ideal for the purpose. The fibre was extruded, spun and machine knitted to form the garment. It was not until the 1960s however that tights or pantyhose were first introduced. They gave women the freedom to wear the new style mini skirts without fear of exposing unsightly stocking tops and they were available in a range of colours and weights.
