Long Stockings: Personal Experiences

Some brief comments are available reporting on childhood experiences with long stockings. We post them because they are such short postings.

America (1950s)

I wore long black cotton stockings and stocking supporters along with short pants well into the 1950's since my parents were somewhat more traditional and did not believe that boys should be dressed as miniature adults.
