History of Nylon Stockings Day

Yes, the need for tights may rein these days but nylon stockings were originally the "It" fashion accessory. In fact, a dress is considered incomplete without some super sexy nylon stockings. Before nylon stockings were invented, women wore materials that included cotton, linen, wool, or silk. Research into nylon production began in 1927 by DuPont and was produced for commercial use in 1939. When nylon socks hit the market, they became so popular that more than 64 million pairs were sold in the first year.

However, nylon socks became less used during the Second World War. Their production was stalled because of the structure used to make parachutes, airplane ropes and ropes. During this time, the demand for nylon socks in the market remains high, however, despite little or no supply.
