1950s style Seamed Stockings. Choose from plain black or vibrant colourful Seamed Stockings
Our Retro Seamed Stockings are a luxurious range of nylons affordable enough to wear every day. Although entire range of Retro Seams are available as both stockings and pantyhose, so you can choose how authentically 1950s you want to be! just to let you into a little secret, we do sell far more seamed stockings than tights: long live glamour!
On the Silver Screen
Our Retro seamed nylons are a favourite of costume departments and are often purchased for period dramas. Oprah Winfrey wears our Retro Seamed Stockings in chocolate in her forthcoming move The Butler, and they've also been worn in TV dramas including The Hour, The Bletchley Circle and Miss Marple.
As well as traditional skintone shades and classic black we've taken the opportunity to have a little fun with our Retro nylons adding vibrant contrast seams and even polka dots. Polka dot seamed stockings were a favourite of 1950s pin up artist Gil Elvgren in his illustrations but I've never seen a real vintage pair of dotty stockings. Contrast seamed nylons, however, were made although they were extremely expensive and reserved for evening wear.
