    Thigh-high Stockings

    Juni 21st, 2013

    Thigh-high stocking is the American English word for hold-ups. They are a type of stockings that are not held up by a garter or a garter belt but by elastic or sticky material that is sewn into the top part of the hold-ups. Hold-ups were first made of silk but only became largely popular when nylon was invented which made the production of hold-ups cheaper. The invention of the mini skirt helped hold-ups gain large popularity in the 1960s. Hold-ups can either be produced on a circular machine which leaves them seamless but can also be made with a flat knitting machine which includes a seam and is usually more expensive.
