Aristoc, stockings

Core Record

Title stockings
Collection Museum of Design in Plastics: Arts University Bournemouth
Manufacturer Aristoc
Date circa 1975 1999
Description A pair of seamed sheer Aristoc Harmony nylon stockings with point heel in the original packet. They have a shaped heel which is made a feature of by the use of heavier weight fibre in this area. These stockings also make a feature of the seam which runs up the back of the leg from the heel to the top of the stocking. Seamfree stockings were slow to be accepted as the sheer nature of the fibre and the absence of a seam was reminiscent of bare legs which was considered unsightly in the 1940s and 50s. The fashion for seam free stockings and tights became popular during the 1960s but the wearing of stockings with seams remains popular with some women.
