A history of hosiery
The term hosiery refers to clothing items which are worn on your legs and/or on your feet, typically most people will think of items such as leggings and suspenders which are the more common hosiery items which are worn with the first and tights being one of the most popular items. They can be plain designs which are suitable for wearing to work to sexy designs which are designed more for going out and then there are the items such stockings and suspenders which are designed more for wear in the home and especially in the bedroom. The term was first founded in Roman times where it was the name that went to items of clothing that were featured on the legs of people often made from either leather or cloth.
In current times most hosiery is produced using fabrics which have a lot of movement and stretch in them, there are many technologies now that are used to produce these so they will have a long life as well as fit comfortably, look good, wash well and have complex designs in them.
