I love this video! Have you ever watched a TV show called ‘MythBusters‘? I feel like this is a very early version of that show, where they take myths, sayings or beliefs and test them out. In this video from 1956 and lady and a gentleman are testing the robustness of a nylon stocking, through various extreme methods, such as towing a car with a single stocking!
I don’t believe that nylons should be an item of luxury, I think they should be as readily available as tights are these days, and not only that, but they should also be STRONG! Women used to wear stockings on a daily basis whilst going about their business (including working in factories during the war) and could not afford to wear a pair once and throw them away because they were snagged or laddered.
Long live the nylon stocking!
