Women know you cannot just throw on any pair of tights with a skirt or dress. Women want them to fit well, not fall down and overall just feel as if they have nothing on while looking stylish. Pretty Polly creates this type of hosiery and more for women. The "more" is the fact Pretty Polly is known for their unique, exotic designs of fashion-forward hosiery. Pretty Polly is anything but boring.

The innovations of Pretty Polly began in 1919 when two manufacturing technicians, Harry Hibbert and Oswald Buckland formed a hosiery company in Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, to manufacture ladies stockings. The name, Pretty Polly came when the men bought a hosiery wholesaling company set up by a bookmaker's daughter. The bookmaker had a special racehorse named Pretty Polly, and asked the daughter to keep the name with her store. Hibbert and Buckland figured they could turn the name into a fashion phenom. When nylon was invented in 1937, the hosiery industry skyrocketed to the top of the fashion world. Every woman wanted to feel pretty and look stylish in hosiery. Pretty Polly came up with their own invention for the hosiery industry by inventing the Hold-Ups in 1967; thus, catapulting them into the number one brandn of hosiery. The rest is history as Pretty Polly continues to design and manufacture their innovative designs throughout the world.

The most famous collection in the Pretty Polly brand is designed by Henry Holland, one of London's most prestigious designers. The House of Holland collection features cutting-edge legwear by mixing sheer and opaque fabrics with its own twist on unique designs. Other collections include Nylons, which combine the sheer, glossy 1940's retro look with 21st century technology; and Catwalk, which features fashion tights in quirky, flirty styles. Celebrities like Selena Gomez, Kourtney Kardashian and Rihanna have been seen in Pretty Polly fashions.

Customers say the best thing about the hosiery is the ability to stand out. One woman who bought the Alphabet Tights with letters scattered on the legs said, "I loved how different, but simple they are. I am 5'8 and my legs are pretty skinny. I was surprised to find that they fit perfectly!" Others love that the Nylons and Opaques collections come in many different colors and styles. One woman said the tights are perfect because, "I love wearing patterned tights and think they are a great way to make lots of different outfits with one dress or skirt."

Pretty Polly designers are known for these unique styles so they keep pumping out new and fun designs as well as the traditional ones that made them known worldwide many decades ago. They offer classic fishnets, sheer gloss tights and opaque tights, but also exclusive, wild patterns that cannot be seen in many other collections. Dressing up an outfit in fashion and fun has never been so elegant for women. Pretty Polly gives women something besides the traditional tights just won't do for the attention women deserve.
