Van Raalte classic nylon stockings, sheer RHT seamless, suntan shade
|Online Auction Description|
A pair of seamless nylon stockings in excellent condition. Welt has the blue and white Van Raalte logo with a cat:
âToe & Heelâ âSheerâ âLengthies 10â
Sizing vintage nylons is a bit difficult because the sizing used today is not quite the same. This pair is labeled size 10, long (âlengthiesâ).
The welt or top is reinforced to support garters without damage to the sheer nylon fabric. The foot is sheer also except for reinforcing at heel and toe (RHT).
VanRaalte was one of the first to bring to the market the revolutionary nylon hosiery starting in the mid-1940s. The company was gone well before the end of the 20th Century.
These stockings are fragile and require special care â in putting them on, in wearing, washing and storing.
If you plan to wear the stockings, you need the right âequipmentâ!
Wearing vintage nylons requires support by garters, usually a garter belt or a girdle with garters attached. Often a long-leg style girdle works best, with less strain on the delicate nylon fabric.
(Guidelines for care are available upon request.)
Should you have specific questions, please let me know. I am not an expert; however, I'll do my best. After all, I used to wear nylon stockings all the time. (And was I ever happy to welcome strong stretchy stockings when they finally appeared!)
These early nylons snag very easily, even with careful handling. All it takes is a fingernail or brushing past a slightly rough surface.
There is no return/refund on this item due to their delicate nature.
Please consider your bid with care.
