Back in the early 1940s during the war, nylon hosiery had been rationed, so resourceful women started to use make-up on their legs to achieve the look they were after. This involved nude-coloured foundation for the leg cover and an eyebrow pencil for the back seam. This look is as popular today as it was back then, but is far easier to achieve thanks to modern technology, beautiful materials and stunning design by some of the world’s top brands. For a beautiful, timeless look, give a nod to the women of the 40s by wearing a pair of vintage inspired back seamed tights or stockings. You will find an extensive range here at Miss Tights.
