When you live in the olden days, wearing pantyhose or stockings is a requirement. Seam or seamless. During the war, they can’t afford to buy one and they’re very hard to get so women use black liner and draw on their legs so it would look like they’re wearing stockings. In the modern days, stockings are seamless, but we love the vintage style seam stockings with the garter. It’s not easy to find those vintage seam stockings but if you look harder, you’ll find them.
If you are interested, we can get them for you.
