Happy National Stocking Day!


National Nylon Stocking Day, is held every year on May 15, is the perfect opportunity for us Hosiery Lovers to celebrate this wardrobe essential, which has played an important role in the fashion industry. Here’s how Jayne Nicole is celebrating.


Though the history of National Nylon Stocking Day is hazy it is celebrated to recognize nylon stockings as one of the most useful fashion accessories that were invented for women. The day is celebrated every year on May 15 not only to look back at the history of nylon stockings but also to shed light on the numerous varieties and colors of nylon stockings that are available on the market. It also aims to encourage people to wear these stockings since they are durable and extra comfortable.

Yes, the demand for pantyhose may reign supreme today but nylon stockings were originally the ‘It’ fashion accessory. In fact, a dress was deemed incomplete without the addition of some sexy sheer nylon stockings. Before nylon stockings were invented, women wore material that included cotton, linen, wool, or silk. Research on the production of nylon started in 1927 by DuPont and was produced for commercial use in 1939. Once nylon stockings hit the market, they were so popular that over 64 million pairs were sold in the first year.

However, nylon stockings became less accessible during World War II. Their production was put on hold as the texture was used to build parachutes, airplane cords, and ropes. During this time, the demand for nylon stockings in the market was still high, however, despite there being little to no supply.
