It’s something I wear a lot of on my website. Not only in the form of stockings, but also panties, slips, nightgowns and the majority of my vintage lingerie is made from nylon. While nylon is not a breathable material, and therefore I avoid wearing it on hot summer days, it is a very soft, silky and sensual material next to the skin.
If you’re interested in knowing how nylon came about, you can check out the Wikipedia page for it. And if you’d like to know more about nylon in regards to nylon stockings, Alexis4u has a great glossary on their website.
