Vintage 'Hold-ups' by Pretty Polly. The manufacturer claims that these nylon stockings are
The stocking which holds up by itself. No suspenders required
And with regard to the unusual choice of 18 denier yarn, Pretty Polly continues
Sheerer than 20 denier
Stronger than 15 denier
Pretty Polly the only genuine 'Hold-ups'
The vintage stockings have some degree of stretch, but it is fairly limited, since the size range is limited to 8½ to 9. The stockings have a reinforced toe, but a 'vision', or nude heel. On a flap inside the pack guidance is given on how to put these stockings on. The cellophane pack and the printed insert are all in excellent condition.
