We went to watch some friends perform their swing dancing routine recently, and as weird as this may sound, I was really disappointed to not see flashes of stockings tops while the women were being twirled around. I don’t dance so I don’t know if it’s comfortable to dance in a suspender belt and stockings, but I wish I had seen some good old fashioned hosiery peeking out from the flying skirts. I have to say though, I wish I could dance like that!
I love these three photos of this couple dancing, they look like they are having so much fun! I’m not exactly sure how she kept her stockings up with all that dancing and no suspender belt though!
These look like they are from around WW2, what do you think?
These photos make me so happy for several reasons, for starters though, her stockings look GORGEOUS. I really like how high up they come. Secondly, she looks like she’s really going for it and having loads of fun, I mean look at that skirt! And lastly, I’m imagining that the crowds found her flashing somewhat scandalous as I’m guessing these photos were taken in the late 50s/early 60s and that would not have been very ‘proper’ behaviour.
I just LOVE this photo, her face, her outfit, the perfect stockings… everything about this photo is perfect.
I have no idea when this photo was taken but quite frankly I don’t care. It’s amazing, what a perfect shot!
Do you dance? Would it be uncomfortable or impractical to wear stockings?
