National Nylon Stockings Day is a celebration of nylon stockings and it's fabulous influence on society. At VienneMilano, we believe that not only should May 15th be a day to commend hosiery, but a day to praise all of the fabulous women who choose to reveal their style and confidence by wearing stockings.
That's why from today to May 15th, 2018, VienneMilano will present you with our new gift box for FREE with every purchase! Send yourself a present in a gift box that can be used to store your lovely new thigh highs or used as a gift for someone special (no need for gift wrapping!). You must use voucher code FABBOX1 in order to receive this offer.
Why is May 15th considered to be National Nylon Stockings Day? While the history of stockings goes way back in time, we'll spare you the details and jump right into the 19th century when DuPont invented Nylon as a material that could be used to create clothing – including hosiery. Nylon Stockings first debuted at the 1939 World's Fair in New York. However, they were finally made available for sale on May 15th, 1940.
This is an image of the first pair of (experimental) Nylon Stockings, presented by the Smithsonian Collection.
So, what are you waiting for? Pamper yourself or someone you love with a pair of our luxurious thigh highs, and tell us how do you intend on celebrating National Nylon Stockings Day?
