I want I want I want!!!


It looks like the woman in the second picture is holding a whip. LOL


Be sure to zoom in on that last ad to read the "Important Notice about Nylon Hose." A nice bit of history there and would explain why they were so expensive for that time period. Compare the cost of those hose to something like a dress from the same time period and you will see these are very expensive!

Bela, in the early 1940s, nylon hose had a seam that ran down the length of the back of women's legs. So when there was a nylon shortage, some bare-legged women would draw a line down the backs of their legs with eyeliner to give the appearance of wearing hose.


Is it possible to find still the satin finish knit rayon slips?

i am a big fan of this lingerie
