Shiny or glossy stockings are known for their glamorous, elegant look. Their light reflecting qualities give a flawless, flattering finish to your legs with a smooth, silky touch. So how are they made? Most are created with Nylon, a material which was invented in 1930 by a scientist named Julian Hill. In 1940 the first stocking was created and were an instant hit. Nylon is a silky smooth thermoplastic, that’s strong and durable, which is also waterproof and fast drying, making it the perfect material for light weight coverage that's durable. The nylon is then put into a knitting machine that pulls together hundreds of nylon threads to weave the stocking.
We recommend Miss O Silky Stockings as these glossy stockings give your legs a healthy glow - pair them with a skirt and top to give a polished finish to your look as the silky yarns cover up unwanted blemishes or imperfections.
